At ... a new theory on why the Sun's corona is hotter than its surface. This was the subject of Bob Johnson's talk at the speaker meeting last weekend (the video will be up on the web site in a couple of weeks time). The research is published in Nature Astronomy and is derived from data sent back by the FOXSI-2 sounding rocket./ Why is the Sun's atmosphere much hotter than its surface? They suggest super heated plasma via nano flares.

Note ... the FOXSE-2 is a sounding rocket with seven telescopes designed to study the Sun.

At .... the existence of baryonic matter - particles that link galaxies together - has been found (it is alleged). The article is currently uploaded to the arXiv server awaiting peer review etc. Go to
