NASA scientists have made a new claim about the Sun. According to specialists who observe the shadows that form during the solar eclipses, the Sun is much larger than the known face measurement.
Scientists have researched the results of their research to find that the radius of the Sun is much bigger than it had previously been calculated.
The results of the scientific work will be proven during the "full solar eclipse" that can be seen from the USA on August 21st.
According to this, the surface area of the Sun, which is calculated for almost 200 years, will be measured for the first time close to its real values.
The German astronomer Arthur Auwers passed away in 1891 as the first person to predict the size of the Sun in history.
Auwers calculated the radius of the Sun as 696 thousand kilometers based on the fluctuations visible to the naked eye in the photo of Star.
The modeling of the German astronomer was used until 2015. On this date, the International Astronomical Union recalculated the radius of the star to be 695,700 km, based on the followers of the Sun.
For Google Maps, researcher Xavier Jubier, who detailed the Sun and Moon eclipses, said that his observations reveal that the Sun is bigger than previously thought.
Ernie Wright, a NASA researcher, explained that he agreed with Jubier on the outcome of his research.
