Short video of what soho experiences during a CME Coronal Mass Ejection. This is the energetic particle flux striking the CCD imager chip inside the camera.

You wouldn't want to be there...


As an aside, people and their wishes for "stars in jars" would be advised not to wish too hard. This is camera footage from inside one reactor building at Fukushima. As the video develops we see the increasing strikes by gamma radiation from the melted core as white snow on the screen, the closer to the source of the "star in the jar" reveals an intense radiation flux, similar to the video above.

At about 2 minutes plus...

I seem to recall that Genesis crashed to earth and broke open due to mechanical failure of its chutes, and that its samples had been contaminated as such. There's actually footage on YouTube of the landing. Maybe I missed something but I remember when it happened it seemed to be a failure.

The star in a jar is in Germany. It is called: Wendelstein 7-X or W7-X for short. It is a nuclear fusion reactor that took 20 years to build.

It is shut down for upgrades but cool news is...

IT IS WORKING!!

Ah, now I see. Sorry, I was commenting as to how I remembered the incident. Didn't realize that some samples came back untainted.

People, they come together.
People, they fall apart.
No-one can stop us now,
cause we are all made of stars.

Stars are also made of all the infinite bits of stuff, crashing, bashing, huddling together, more, more and more crushing each other, heavier and heavier, so dense we literally fuse..... booooom we are stars...

Really cool.
Now if we could just capture some solar plasma contain it and make it into a desktop paper weight.



I always wanted a single granule of white dwarf as a paperweight.

If you were able to contain the mass somehow to keep it from exploding... well you can't do that here, you need a white dwarf to contain it.

But if, if you could, and you 'put in on your desk' it would immediately fall to the center of the earth.
