X-Ray'd

X-rays peer inside bodies and bones to see forms and functions. They can also look inside planetary bodies to expose remarkable details invisible to the naked eye.

The Jet Propulsion Laboratory at CalTech has just released an amazing photograph of the Sun showing X-rays streaming off the sun. The image, the first captured by their Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR), was combined with a picture taken by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory exposes the limb of the sun. The JPL scientTists may have also decided to enter the photography market with a stunning view ready for any art gallery display.
