Why does the Corona sizzle at one million °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.
