As the most detailed images of the sun are released this week, we look at other huge telescopes and their discoveries
This week astronomers released the highest resolution of images taken of the sun’s stormy surface. The Daniel K Inouye Solar Telescope in Hawaii is the largest solar telescope in the world. The images reveal the nugget-like structures that make up the solar surface, each the size of France. The image is the start of a 50-year study of our closest star by the scientists working at the telescope.
