Our solar system filled with plasma, ionised gas

MEXICO: Our solar system is filled with plasma, or ionised gas, originating from the Sun as a result of the solar wind and other more violent solar eruptions, such as solar flares,” study co-author Chloë Pugh, of the University of Warwick’s Centre for Fusion, Space and Astrophysics, said in a press release.

Led by the University of Warwick, the research has found a stellar superflare on a star observed by NASA’s Kepler space telescope with wave patterns similar to those that have been observed in solar flares.

Superflares are thousands of times more powerful than those ever recorded on the Sun, and are frequently observed on some stars.
