NASA Releases 4K Sun VideoNASA Releases 4K Sun Video

NASA has released stunning footage of the sun in ultra high definition. Naming the project “Thermonuclear Art”, NASA captured the images from the Solar Dynamics Observatory. There, an image is taken every 12 second, in 10 different wavelengths of invisible ultraviolet light.Each of those wavelengths is assigned an individual color, providing the different sets of images seen in the video, the Space Agency released. Accompanying the video, NASA Goddard—the space flight center—said, “Presented in ultra-high definition video (4K), the video presents the nuclear fire of our life-giving star in intimate detail, offering new perspective into our own relationships with grand forces of the solar system. The video lasts around 30 minutes, with the above being an accelerated version.  NASA says it takes a specialist media team 10 hours to make just one minute of the released video. It also recently released footage of Jupiter in 4K HD, showing changes in the planet’s Giant Red Spot.
