Chillymanjaro – Researchers Discovered Source Of Solar Wind Energy – 10 March 2013

Researchers have found signs of an energy source in the solar wind, a hot and fast flow of magnetized gas that streams away from the sun’s upper atmosphere. Solar wind is made of hydrogen and helium ions with a sprinkling of heavier elements. Solar wind is the plasma of charged particles (protons, electrons, and heavier ionized atoms) coming out of the Sun in all directions. The solar wind is what blows the tails of comets back away from the bodies of comets as they go through the solar system. As solar wind leaves the Sun, it accelerates, tripling in speed as it passes through the corona. Something inside the solar...
