Field of Science

To Octavio Paz

It looks like the NASA STEREO mission is continuing to not only study our closest star, but also inspire artists. Some lines from The Broken Jar by Octavio Paz,
A world of spin and flame is born in the head of the dreamer, blue suns, green whirlwinds, bird beaks of light pecking open the pomegranate stars
In this next film scientists at UC Berkeley talk about their research and the secret lives of invisible magnetic fields are revealed as chaotic ever-changing geometries,
Photons take hundreds of thousands of years to random walk there way from the core [of the sun] all the way out to where we see them in the photosphere yet in a millionth of second a [magnetic field line] reconnection completely changes topology of the corona
