It's been a long time since I've looked at the news, but hasn't there been a spacecraft that has studied the sun up close? Telescopes may get us a lot of information, but I think we still need to know more about the fusion occuring beneath the surface. I might want to see a working diagram of the atoms beneath the surface, and hope that a collider is able to reproduce it. Has there been a new super heat resistant material invented in order to support a supposed space ship? There are plenty of areas in space with extreme temperatures, we need to be prepared. Will at some point be able to contain material ejected from the sun, and use it to generate more electricity here on Earth? I know it's a sci-fi thing at it's core, but there has to be some real science that can support the concept.
