“Extreme Solar Research: Why Chasing Total Solar Eclipses are Worth the Effort”
In this day and age of space-based observations, one would think that all our bases for exploring the Sun, its expanding atmosphere that interacts with all objects in the heliosphere, that we have all our bases covered. Ironically, this is not the case. I will show in this presentation how there is a serious gap that can only be filled, at present, by eclipse observations in the visible wavelength range.
