Explained the origin of “burning the Prairie” Sun

American and Norwegian scientists were able to explain the formation of a “burning Prairie” in the Sun, that is, spicules — thin columns of burning plasma in the chromosphere of the star. A study published in the journal Science.

Scientists built a model taking into account the distribution albanowski waves that accurately reproduces the parameters and the geometry of solar spicules. The obtained data are in good agreement with observation, as demonstrated in the video.

The existence of spicules became known in the twentieth century, in diameter hot plasma columns up to several hundred kilometers in length and tens of thousand kilometers. The Sun at the same time, there are about a million spicules, they cover about one percent of the stellar disk.
