AI could reveal why the sun’s outer atmosphere is so hot

Researchers are using artificial intelligence to try to solve a longstanding solar mystery.

At about 1.8 million degrees Fahrenheit (1 million degrees Celsius), the sun‘s outer atmosphere, or corona, is far hotter than its visible “surface,” the photosphere, which radiates at 10,340 degrees F (5,730 degrees C) at its hottest. However, nobody quite knows why the corona is so hot.
