NP-119 Science in Orbit: The Shuttle & Spacelab Experience, 1981-1986

Some of the elements found on the sun (silicon, carbon, and helium) are shown in this HRTS spectrum (1,500 to 1,700 Angstroms).

 

Some of the elements found on the sun (silicon, carbon, and helium) are shown in this HRTS spectrum (1,500 to 1,700 Angstroms). This spectral region is particularly useful for understanding the outer layer of the sun where high temperatures are maintained despite large radiative energy losses.
