New new techniques & technologies at Aberystwyth University, ever wondered what the sun's corona looks like, using tomography we can and study space weather in more detail.
Tomography, a technique with multiple medical applications including CAT scans, uses a series of images taken from many different angles to reconstruct a 3-dimensional map of a patient's body.
'This is a breakthrough for scientists trying to understand the corona and the solar wind. We've been attempting to apply tomography to the solar corona for more than 30 years but it's proved very difficult and very inaccurate until now. The new technique that I've developed is only in its infancy but shows great potential for areas of research like space weather,' said Dr Morgan, of the University of Aberystwyth.
