Solar Orbiter Snaps Closest Pictures Ever of the Sun – Reveals New “Campfires” Phenomena

"With summer here. Most of the news about our home star. The sun most likely will involve sunscreen right And that's something we should all be paying attention to. But scientists are also paying close attention to the surface of the sun, because despite it being so ever present, we still have a lot to learn about the sun. And they have just announced that the solar orbiter a satellite orbiting the sun has just sent back Some photos of surprising events on the sun's surface. Here to talk to us about these new images is Aneke to Groove instrument operation scientists for these solar orbiter she's based in Madrid, Spain, and joins us today. By Skype. Welcome to science Friday. No, I believe that these are the closest direct images of the sun's surface. Is that right? That's correcting the There has never being cameras actually observing the sum from that close, So we have had satellites going closer, but never with images never with telescopes. So tell us this being a radio program when you looked at those images. What air So what was that surprising thing you saw on the surface of the sun? Well, so first. We were really excited to see these first images because these are really the very first day that we got from the satellite. S so it's even just test images still, but we could already see new features. So about what we saw, Mamie was in the B imager. So that is a telescope that is looking at the Somme in extreme ultraviolet light. You cannot see that from worth because the atmosphere is blocking it. But we can see it from space. And so there you see part of the atmosphere that some the solar Corona and that atmosphere is currently very quiet. There's not that much activity on the sun. But now it turned out when we're resuming in that we see very little eruptions, which are much, much smaller than the ones we can usually see. And so this was quite a surprise because we have never seen these features before. And they were called campfires. If I'm reading this correctly, yes, because indeed they looked like this little flashes or flames off off light on DH. Actually, they they look like the many, many brothers ofthe solar flares and solar flares are much bigger eruptions off. Off radiation from the sun, and sometimes they also cause clouds ofthe solar plus muscle solar material That leaves the sun and so this thing to be And micro thin air. So to state so very small eruptions. That's kinda interesting. Do we know anything about Thies? Small eruptions? Ah, and how do we study these further? Well, so that's one of the strength ofthe solar orbiter that he does not only have these camera either has many different telescopes in total six, which will all observe the son of different wavelengths, so you see slightly different temperatures on the sun and slightly different lives. So the next bit will be to analyze these new features. In all those different types of light tto find out what exactly is happen and then we also have sensors which are measuring the environment on the spacecraft. And they can see what's actually coming out of the sun. So the effects ofthe these little activity on the environment of the sun and later also on Earth. So tell me, though, What mysteries you are most interested in and finding out more. About what? What keeps you up at night? Well, One thing that we are really excited about is that Salaam better will also look at the solar poles. So the North Pole and this house full of the sun, and we have never ever seen this before. We also don't know whether there's any activity going on there or how to some structure at these north and South pole, and this is important to wonder. Somehow, all these activity hurts. Because the sun has an activity cycles. It's not always as active. It has times several years where it's quite quiet, which is now the period we are in now and then we expect in two or three years from now there will be more solar activity. There will be some what we call solar storms. So this is the time when the sun is very exit, and then it will go back to a quieter stage. And we don't really honest that how that works, and we think that one of the keys Lie with the solar poles. So that's the part I'm most excited about. You know, I never thought about the sun having polls. I know that the Earth has polls. What creates the poles on the sun? Also, when I talk about poles, I talk mainly about the magnetic poles. So the son has a magnetic field while the earth magnetic things one me the North Pole and assess full But on the sonnets are much more complicated because there's magnetic field gets completely tangled. And this is actually what causes the activity and what causes this cycle in food.

"When did you start with larry. Since the beginning the beginning when original and now you are a senior writer so <hes> welcome to the podcast you live in spain. They live in madrid. I've been there for eleven in years eleven years row. So what brought you to live in madrid the very beginning in eleven years ago why studied abroad there. That's when i met brian and i was living in new york and i was working and i just was so attracted to the culture and the food and the people and i just felt love and i couldn't wait to go back so i finally did and i never left. Did you set out to move there or your vacation in your car. I'm not i'm never gonna leave. Why originally went to do a master's degree which was supposed to be a one year program eleven years later here i am so i've been to barcelona many times myself at least a dozen times. I think i've actually been to spain but i've only connected in madrid. I've never actually stayed in the city and so you're giving me. Some looks like it's definitely overdo. A lot of people told me that a lot of people say oh. I've been to barcelona. It's kind of like saying i'm from the u._s. And someone says oh. I've been to new york and don't get me wrong. I love new york but it's not completely representative of the entire united states and barcelona is a great city but madrid is is really the soul of spain in my opinion so mayo madrid why do you. I love the city so much okay well bursa lona for example. It's a great place and they have some really amazing architecture and you have the beach. Madrid is doesn't have maybe all of those huge famous landmarks that you might find in barcelona like the sagrada familia but the whole city is is like a landmark. It's so authentic. It's so spanish. It has such a vibe. I been on beyonce everyone there. The local just loved life. They're always out walking around kids older people. Everyone is out all the time in the plaza ause the squares. It's just it's got such a nice energy. Is it a very walkable city. I always call it a small village. Even though it's a capital city it's also easy to get around the city centre on foot foot. It's very doable. Where do you live in madrid. I live in an area called barrio salamanca. It's known for shopping so if you're shopper you want to borrow salamanca for all the big boutiques and some some of the cooler small spots. How would you spend three days in the city. You know if you're going for a long weekend. What would you say are the you know. The must do's must eats wearing the city. Would you focus your efforts. Definitely check out the retiro park which is kind of madrid's version of central park but quite a bit smaller spoonful lots of monuments and fountains. It's a really nice place as to hang out be ready to walk arounds. It's a walkable city so bring your gym shoes and mala sonya chico's. A great neighborhood for restaurants can walk around. Even though they less late they have poems on the street. It's really there's a local neighborhoods. You can check out if you love art. The city has amazing art the they call it the golden triangle of art museums. They have the pro. The rain is so fiu and the thiessen and all three are fantastic so if you love art you're in the right place. There's a lot of other smaller smaller museums. The sorolla museum is really impressive. It's kind of a hidden gem. I think that a lot of other people don't know about and eat and drink. It's one of the greatest cities in the world for food so you can spend a whole day or two days or as long as you want just hopping from bar having top as having tinto vidana which is not sangria. It's better than sangria korea housing but you shouldn't drink it ca- sangria the kind of throw in whatever they want but team delano is always the same thing it's red wine mixed with fanta lemon lemon drink or cassette which is kind of like sprite but way better what is the food is similar to barcelona. I mean the favorite dishes well. I think the best thing to do if you want to sample food is to check out some of the food markets so everybody knows about the more touristy <hes> san send me l. market but there's markets all over the city from really chic cool ones like plat day <hes> they have really gourmet tapas and different seafood and and she's bars and different things you can try all sorts of food or you can go low brow to some of these more local markets and just get a slab of meat on a slab of bread which i know doesn't doesn't sound so appetizing but some of the most things very fresh too right. I mean back you were shopping for. You know same day to cook at home. They're going to the market every day to buy ingredients. Everyone if you're low carb. It's the city for you. Everyone loves bread there but everyone's thin so whatever they're doing working talking oh tons yeah but you should definitely try one of the most famous kind of quick dishes majorities. The book says it's like <hes> seafood sandwich. I guess with fried fried calamari on a baguette. I mean obviously you're you're eating late in so you're probably getting started pretty lead to. I've had dinner last till two a._m. And that's perfect because that's all the clubs open but you know it's funny. Everyone goes out for a drink after dinner. It's called getting a copa. You get a drink after dinner everybody does it doesn't matter how old or young you are. Everyone goes out for a drink after dinner. Just just what you do so a lot of bars are open till three or four a._m. Clubs open to three a._m. I mean the open a little bit earlier. Known actually goes until later so if you're ready to party madrid is your man raw east coast time but then i can do and rooftop bar is you should plan to go to a rooftop bar. They have a lot of new ones imagery at a lot of them are on hotels so the best one in the city of a really the most amazing views is on top of the cerullo. They base aren't they. It's like an art center and it costs four years to go up and the incredible. It's really worth the money that it costs to go up and another one. I really liked the views from the highest centric rooftop up. It's a good one or the deer. Hotel has a great. We were seeing very on brand. I appreciate right like i knew you would want to hear about the high at one speaking of money those his madrid inexpensive city. Do you have to budget quite a bit for your meals and drinks or is it all pretty affordable. I go out on a limb and say i think it's one of the cheapest european capitals capitals at least western european capitals. Possibly lisbon can compete with lisbon but it's incredibly cheap especially you guys are here in new york. Are you can probably have a full dinner. Drink pairings and then go out and spend less than just stay. Dry me on your typically for dinner out. I won't spend more than twenty. Five or thirty. Euros drinks included. That's like an average bridge. You know but you don't have to spend a lot have a really nice dinner in madrid and lunch menus go for the menu leah. It's the daily lunch menus. You'll see them on chalkboards outside so they typically include. You'd your choice of they'll give you a before appetizers and you pick one a couple main courses and you pick one to also include dessert or coffee and a drink which can be wine beer our water whatever you want but they're usually anywhere from ten to fifteen euros but that's what you pay for a glass of wine in new york so easily. I know you're super madrid buff which i appreciate your show me around income but say you have more than three days and you wanna see a little bit more of spain are there are there are a lot of day-trip options can. Can you still stay in madrid and some of the country. Oh absolutely there's segovia house nearby. They have a really famous roman ecuador. They have a castle that looks like the cinderella castle at disneyworld a beautiful cathedral. There's also tornado which is known for art and it's kind of hilly and cobblestone streets. You've you've got avi law which is a medieval walled city. There's tons of places you can pop over and you need a rental car can usually trains trains everywhere. You've got buses. Trains is our good. You can always rent a car but i think it's kinda. Scary sometimes drive in europe. It's pretty clear why you have not come back so we need to take a quick break and when we come back from the break we're gonna dig into place end miles options for your trip to madrid off. I've actually connected.

S. wants to go to war with Iran so what we have is a false flag ops that ends in war with Iran which by the way my could sound familiar one one side we have the story of Trudy who is presented to the public as one of the terrorists she's the terrorists who loves bonsai trees and she's running from the people who are chasing her because they she knows that the whole event was staged and on the other side of the story is Paul Clinton who is and American state department official and he's trying to keep a deep state cobbled from starting this war with Iran and they'll give your your listeners I should GP pole and Trudy have met before I won't say anything more so when we use the phrase false flag ops what exactly we talking about for black ops is and attack speeds by one country in order to to provoke their countrymen into war against somebody else it's a fairly common tactic that's been used in history and even for example Germany use that to go to war against Poland they they they staged an attack on German troops and then they they went to war with Poland yes I remember correctly didn't they put some somebody I don't know if it was prisoners or something in Polish uniforms and and had a quote unquote attack on a on a on a German radio station or something if I remember this yeah yeah yeah that that's it brings about the next day the nvidia are full of false flag ops the tool of super powers those are the the tool of rogue governments are are they everybody's tool well I suppose that everybody's America has been accused of false flag ops and other countries that have started war have been accused of them I think you've been North Korea stage something before they invaded does South Korea but yeah there they're fairly fairly common and in history a lot of people say that the the attack on the the ship the main that was what started the Spanish American war many people think that was a false flag up put on by the Americans because they wanted to go to war in writing this book were you looking at any particular event in American history obviously there's a nine eleven connection here too but was there anything specific that needs you right this work and is there a message there that you are looking for maybe those who might have had their eyes and ears close to some of these things that they should be saying one of the reasons that I wrote this book is that I felt that somebody had to stick up for the alternative version of nine eleven did had been largely passed over all of the books thriller is political thrillers of this type they're always with this fairly muscular bunch of Americans who are very righteous and and goal weight and go into some country and blow away all these terrorists and all of that and the terrorists of course are always be horrible lover you know be be eating are creatures and so with that and a couple of other things in mind just having seen a lot of rather dirty dealings in American foreign policy which is what I studied I studied international relations that's why I wanted to write this book because it seemed to me that the alternative theories of nine eleven were quite valid and that somebody had to stick up for those theories and present that point of view to the public and especially what I wanted to show people was how easy it is to put on one of these these events and the media goes along everything that's told to the public is is very smoothly swallowed and it's not it's not this massive risk that they're taking to to put on these events it's fairly easy and it can be done with a fairly small number of people you said a bunch of things in there they're going to break down as this conversation continues but tell us what the significance of the title is obviously the eleven nine as a reference to nine eleven but what is the rest of it refer to well do the title implies two aspects the two aspects of the novel nine eleven the nine that is implies drama a terrorist event the terrorists who loved bonsai trees implies comedy and that this is a very human humane the story about vulnerable people and that this is going to be a a book that's half drama and half comedy one of the things the book addresses is the idea that many people who argue against a conspiracy theory or an alternative theory of of a historical event we've seen it with nine eleven we seen it with JFK they often say that you know if this in fact was this conspiracy or it happened this alternative way someone would have spoken up about if someone would have squealed by now but you address that in the book right yeah yeah very much you see there there are two points to that number one is that somebody actually goes and talks and I would imagine that in the wake of nine eleven in the in the years after that probably lots of people very discreetly contacted reporters and said look I know something about nine eleven and I I can tell you some important things probably the the reporters you know the reporter who gets this information you know figures he's got a Pulitzer Prize for the taking and here's a story that implies that Americans not necessarily the government because I'm not so sure that it's the government we're talking about but that it implies that Americans were responsible for nine eleven so this this reporter right up the store he goes to his his editor or in the in the network would be the producer and he says I've got this and this is really explosive stuff and so on and so forth and the editor you know rubs his neck and says no you know this this is pretty pretty big stuff this is practically revolutionary we're not going to go with it reporter says why is because this is revolutionary and you know the the editor might might say okay this is so revolutionary you've got to come back to me with two other sources three other sources and every single one of them has got to go on the record and you've all got to be just impeccable sources the story never gets out and I would imagine that also a lot of people who know a small part of the puzzle okay who who were told to do this we're not do that on nine eleven these people I've seen what has happened to to Edward Snowden Chelsea manning bill Binney John Kiriakou and others and and they don't they don't want to get into the same trouble so they don't talk and also there's an aspect of this about the alternative theories of of any big event even with the the the shootings that go on here and there there are alternative theories which are never reported and that is that reporters heat two thirds of nine eleven of whatever number one because the truth the scoop them all right the second is that the cruisers have the freedom to talk about what they are investigating they have the freedom to go after it to send mail and the reporters know that they cannot because they know what the editorial line of the of the newspaper if they don't have to be directed they don't have to be told right this and don't write that that's not the way it is the reporters know what they can do and what they can of course these reporters who aren't they they're basically winners in the rat race of of life there people making good six figure salaries and they do not want to rock the boat and so they have a natural natural hatred of truth there's which comes out all the time whenever whenever you see a reporter mentioned alternative theories of any big event I've often thought and I may have a completely wrong that news media in particular but the reporters the work for the media would want to be the ones to be the first with the story and in many cases the report things without sources not not not at that level but at other levels particularly when it's a political figure involved without necessary verification sources so at what point in that chain is it just that they don't want to contradict maybe an official story from the U. with the federal government or where's the protection coming from I think you get your draw you got to draw very important line here GP there's a big difference in reporting on domestic issues as opposed to foreign policy or security matters you can go after a while of Watergate because that's just one president who of course was not well liked as as as the the the investigation and then pulled the opened up and so it was okay to go after that but to go after the foreign policy or security matters basically saying that the government has been lying to you that's a very different matter indeed one thing is to go after a politician that's on that stage in the game I mean you can see everybody going after trump for example but to go after the government and saying that that an agency the CIA the.
