Learn more about our nearest star, the sun, on "Secrets of the Sun" on Nova, Wednesdays at 8 pm

The Earth’s invisible magnetic field which cocoons us offers some projection against what the Sun occasionally throws in our direction. But recent evidence suggests that the great solar storm of 1859 delivered such a powerful blow that the Earth’s Magnetic field all but collapsed and a powerful electric surge in the atmosphere pulsed across the globe.

It contains 99.9 percent of all the matter in our solar system and sheds hot plasma at nearly a million miles an hour. The temperature at its core is a staggering 27 million degrees Fahrenheit. It convulses, it blazes, it sings. You know it as the sun. Scientists know it as one of the most amazing physics laboratories in the universe. Now, with the help of new spacecraft and Earth-based telescopes, scientists are seeing the sun as they never have before and even re-creating in labs what happens at the very center of the sun.
