SP-402 A New Sun: The Solar Results From Skylab

THE EVER-CHANGING CORONA is shown in these selected X-ray pictures that document five rotations of the Sun- about the first half of the full Skylab mission.

 

THE EVER-CHANGING CORONA is shown in these selected X-ray pictures that document five rotations of the Sun- about the first half of the full Skylab mission. The Sun rotates one-quarter of a turn in the 1-week interval between adjacent pictures; one row corresponds to one solar rotation of about 27 days. These glimpses are a sampling from more than 15 000 X-ray pictures that were made during the same period by this one Skylab experiment.
