The surface Of The Sun

  1. Jun 15, 2005 #1
    I believe that I have compiled compelling evidence from the TRACE, SOHO and YOHKOH satellite programs to suggest that the sun has a solid, electrically conductive surface that lies underneath the photosphere.

    You can find my website with lots of video and photographic evidence to support this theory at:


    I would appreciate any SCIENTIFIC feedback, specifically skeptical feedback to the model I've presented. Please limit your feedback to a SCIENTIFIC refute rather than attacking the messenger.

    For a quicker description of what michael thinks, you can also reference this thread.

    He believes the sun has a solid surface made up of calcium ferrite.

    Considering that the surface temperature is around 6000 deg C and it gets hotter as you go down, anything solid seems extremely unlikely.

    6000°C is above the boiling point of all the elements and any know material we have on earth.
