Magnetic Reconnection in a Solar Flare

Uncovering the secrets of the universe: Researchers use high-power lasers to study magnetic reconnection

Screenshot from NASA’s Conceptual Image Lab on “Magnetic Reconnection Across the Solar System.” Magnetic reconnection occurs when parallel magnetic fields – found in this case in solar flares – collide, break and realign. This process produces a high-energy explosion that catapults particles through space. Credit: NASA Conceptual Image Lab Scientists use powerful lasers to create …
