NASA delivers 10 years of gorgeous fire as researchers drop a beautiful timelapse of our Sun

NASA has always been trying to get more attention from researchers in order to explore more of the Sun. The space organization recently dropped a jaw-dropping video that shows a decade in the life of Sun. The new video is a product of compilation of images taken from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory.

From its orbit in space around Earth, SDO has gathered 425 million high-resolution images of the ball of fire, which is almost 20 million gigabytes of data over the past 10 years. NASA is currently busy detecting aliens in the clouds of Moon from the Apollo 16 mission. Therefore, it comes as a surprise to people after seeing a compilation of the most fierce object in this universe.

The space agency released the time-lapse video to mark SDO’s 10th year in space. The orbiting observatory was launched atop a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket on Feb. 11, 2010.

During its 10 years in space, the SDO has also observed solar tornadoes, giant waves in plasma on the solar surface, polar coronal holes, and magnetic explosions.
