Latest Helioseismology Stories
Like a balloon bobbing along in the air while tied to a child's hand, a tracer has been found in the sun's atmosphere to help track the flow of material coursing underneath the sun's surface.
NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory has helped scientists figure out a little more about what is going on inside the sun.
On a summer's day, the sun dominates the sky looking for all the world like a big, round ball of light. Round is exactly what it is, it turns out. It is nearly the roundest object ever measured.
A team of scientists has created an "MRI" of the Sun's interior plasma motions, shedding light on how it transfers heat from its deep interior to its surface.
A subset of data that helps map out the sun's magnetic fields was recently released from the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO).
The stars are boiling! The reason is the energy generated in the center of the star that wants to escape.
Visible to the human eye as dark blemishes on the solar disk, sunspots are the starting points of explosive flares and coronal mass ejections (CMEs) that sometimes hit our planet 93 million miles away.
Researchers at the University of Central Lancashire have monitored the birth of a sunspot over a period of eight hours using observations from NASAâ€™s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO).
Scientists are determining the properties of materials inside the sun in order to prevent solar damage to high tech systems.
The sun is a very noisy place, generating an inferred multi-frequency song comparable to cathedral bells.
