Scientists trace high-energy particles to the solar plasma

Scientists may have discovered when and how the high-energy particles that bombard Earth and other objects originate from harsh environments such as solar atmosphere.

These high energy particles pose a risk to fragile satellite technologies and for astronauts, and may even affect aircraft flying over the North Pole. Although researchers have been studying these particles for decades, it has been difficult to see a clear pattern of when flares might occur, and therefore to predict when they might occur.
