The sun’s corona has been warming, making its energy accessible to the Earth’s surface, according to a new study.
A team of researchers from the U.S. and China has used data collected by the European Space Agency to calculate how the sun’s solar corona is changing.
The team estimates that the sun will be producing about 10 gigawatts of power by the end of this century, about 20% more than it did in 2000.
The amount of energy coming out of the sun is about a fifth of what it was when it was at its peak in the 1980s.
“The sun’s surface temperature has been increasing at a rate of about 1 degree Celsius per decade for the last 50 years,” the team wrote in the journal Science.
“We estimate that solar thermal power will become a reality by the year 2100.”
The team’s analysis also found that the solar wind, a hot stream of charged particles, is reaching a peak.
The scientists used data from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory to calculate the size of the solar winds, which reach speeds of several meters per second.
The solar wind is one of the most powerful sources of heat on the sun, producing more heat than the sun itself.
A lot of the heat from the sun comes from the corona, the outer layer of the star’s atmosphere.
The corona provides the energy for the sun to grow and evolve.
But the sun has been heating up and its surface temperature is now decreasing, the team found.
The Sun’s surface has warmed by about 0.3°C (0.4°F) in the last decade.
The team used that data to calculate that the surface temperature will decrease by about a degree Celsius (0,4° Fahrenheit) by the beginning of the next century.
The difference between the two is about the same as the difference between an ice cream cone and a fire hydrant.
“We think that the increase in surface temperature reflects the increasing solar wind speed, as well as a gradual cooling of the coronal ridge,” said the team’s lead author, Dr. Xu Jie, a professor of physics at Fudan University in Shanghai.
The study, published today in Science, was led by Fudans former director, Dr Wang Zhongxing.
“A significant portion of the Earth is covered by the sun,” Dr. ZhongXing said in a statement.
“The Sun is heating up the Earth, and the sun may become more important in Earth’s future.
This paper is the first to quantify the contribution of the Sun to Earth’s heat budget.”
The sun has warmed at a fast rate in recent years, and its temperature has warmed even faster.
Last year, it reached the hottest temperature recorded in modern times, which scientists say was unprecedented in the solar system.
It was hotter than the surface of Mars and Mercury.
Solar wind, which is also known as the solar magnetic field, is the flow of particles from the solar coronal mass ejection, or CME, into space.
It’s the energy in the coronic cloud that is generated by the Sun.
The solar wind pushes on the outer layers of the planet’s atmosphere, which creates the solar heat.
The inner corona of the moon is heated by the coronae.
