NASA Sun pics

The last thing I’m going to post today that isn’t Deshi related. But I think it’s proper cool and wanted to share it.

NASA have just released some new images of the sun, which are amazing. The site says:

“The Solar Optical Telescope (SOT) onboard Japan’s Hinode spacecraft has opened its doors and started snapping pictures. Shown below is a “first light” image taken Oct. 23rd. The light and dark blobs are solar granules, masses of hot gas that rise and fall like water boiling atop a hot stove. Each granule is about the size of a terrestrial continent. SOT has no trouble seeing such detail from Earth-orbit 93 million miles away.

But I bet the guy who invented it still loses his car keys.
