Amazing - See the first video of the Sun in 4K, filmed by NASA


In 2010 NASA launched the SDO, a specific satellite to observe the Sun and in order to understand how it influences life on Earth. And to accomplish this, the satellite capture images at 10 different wavelengths, each corresponding to a temperature range. These images were transformed into a video in beautiful 4K resolution.

Scientists study these images to better understand the complex electromagnetic system causing the constant movement on the sun, which can ultimately have an effect closer to Earth, too. Flares and another type of solar explosion called coronal mass ejections can sometimes disrupt technology in space. Moreover, studying our closest star is one way of learning about other stars in the galaxy. NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. built, operates, and manages the SDO spacecraft for NASA's Science Mission Directorate in Washington, D.C.

All tracks are written and produced by Lars Leonhard.
