Data from the Sun

I reported previously (see here) on the CMOS image sensor from Israel’s TowerJazz aboard the NASA Parker Solar Probe. The high-resolution images of the Sun’s corona taken during the first two fly-pasts have exceeded all expectations. A third encounter with … Continue reading

Photographing the Sun

A breakthrough image sensor developed by Israel’s TowerJazz is onboard the NASA Parker Solar Probe spacecraft. The CMOS (complementary metal–oxide–semiconductor) sensor is capturing high-resolution images of the sun’s atmosphere, including coronal mass ejections (CMEs) and solar wind. http://nocamels.com/2018/11/israeli-tech-nasa-photos-sun/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i_z19KPvV1w https://towerjazz.com/2018/10/02/100218/ … Continue reading
