Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, February 01, 2020

The still under-construction Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope (DKIST), which released its first images and movies of the sun's roiling surface on Wednesday, represents one major effort to narrow that gap. Its 13-foot mirror"three times wider than any other solar telescope"can already spot features no other instrument can. In the near future, the $344 million facility, which sits on Haleakala volcano in Hawaii, will also gauge the twists and turns of the invisible but fierce force that drives space weather: magnetism.

Cool image.

Anyone following the Parker Probe? Unbelievable that it has gotten 15 million miles away from the sun and will at one point in its mission get 4 million miles from the sun! That's 16x the distance to the moon. Amazing.

It has also broken speed records for any spacecraft (and of course anything man made) having reached 245,000 MPH
