Why does the corona sizzle at 1 million degrees F? NJIT’s Gregory Fleishman is unearthing clues

(New Jersey Institute of Technology) A team of physicists, led by NJIT's Gregory Fleishman, has recently discovered a phenomenon that may begin to untangle what they call 'one of the greatest challenges for solar modeling' — determining the physical mechanisms that heat the upper atmosphere to 1 million degrees Fahrenheit and higher.
