In this Teaching Astronomy and Space video, from the Institute of Physics (IOP), Teachers TV and the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), solar physicist Lucie Green reveals her lifelong fascination with our nearest star, the Sun.
Lucie explains how space telescopes are allowing us to see the Sun in greater detail than ever before. The latest solar missions reveal sunspots, solar flares, and coronal mass ejections. Lucie explains exactly what effect such violent phenomena can have on our life on Earth.
