This advancement has also helped the community to now capture large-scale solar events, of which only a small portion was captured and studied until now.
A team of astronomers from Pune-based TIFR-National Centre for Radio Astrophysics (NCRA) has managed to capture a 1,000 times better radio image of the Sun, which they state could give more insights in understanding the Sun’s influence on the space weather.
AdvertisingAdditionally, they have said that solar events or flares, heading towards Earth, which can cripple the communication systems on Earth, could be observed and tracked more clearly.
Scientists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA, University of Sydney and Curtin University, Australia, worked with the Indian team for this research.
“ The range of image contrast that was captured has improved significantly and stands 1,000 times better than what could be observed till date.
