NASA Nustar telescope allows you to observe X-rays from the Sun in different parts of its atmosphere, said physicist David Smith of the University of California.

According to him, these Nustar can detect radiation from the Sun with high energy. "Nustar will give us a unique look at the Sun, from the deepest to the highest parts of its atmosphere," - said a member of the team in Santa Cruz.

Physicists first decided to use Nustar to study the Sun about seven years ago, after the design and construction of the space telescope. Work has already been conducted earlier in 2012, writes pravda.ru.

Smith contacted the principal investigator at Caltech in Pasadena Fiona Harrison, who pondered his offer and was delighted with the idea.

"At first I thought the whole idea was crazy," says Harrison. "Why do we not postroitsamy sensitive to high-energy X-ray telescope ever built, designed to look deeper into the Universe, to look at something in our own back yard? Smith finally convinced Harrison, explaining that the weak X-ray flares, predicted by theorists can only be seen on Nustar.

The very first image of the Sun with Nustar shows that the telescope can actually collect data on the Universe. And it gives an idea of the great issues of high temperatures that are above the Sunspots - cool, dark spots on the Sun. Scientists note that future images provide more accurate data at another point in the solar cycle.

Thus, the Sun waiting for future observations Nustar, telescope continues with its galactic studies, probing black holes, supernova remnants and other extreme objects outside our solar system.

Earlier this year, Ashley Dale, who is a member of the working group, called Solarmax, warned that solar "super-storms" are "catastrophic" and "long-term" threat to life on Earth.

Such an event could cause huge bursts of electrical currents in the ground and overhead power lines, causing massive power outages. Dale, who conducted doctoral research in aerospace engineering from the University of Bristol, said it was only a "matter of time" before an exceptionally violent solar storm will approach the Earth.
