Sunspots are areas of intense magnetic fields. They are supposed to be hotter than the surface of the sun but are darker because of decreased convection with the interior of the sun. Is it possible for these fields to trap matter from the sun's core and magnetically confine it at enormous heat and pressure? (nature's Tokamak) If so, could nuclear reactions to produce elements heaver than iron be possible? Could the sunspots be a source of some of the material heavier than helium in our solar system?
