Description

This scientifically accurate sculpture of the Sun would make a perfect gift for astronomers.

Using the computer reconstruction of the solar corona, this sculpture provides a faithful three-dimensional reproduction the magnetic field structure, and hence the arrangement of plasma, around the Sun on 21 October 2000.

The realization in this sculpture illustrates the structure of the corona by tracing out 5000 of the field lines to which the coronal plasma is “frozen.” Each field line is mapped out with an average of 60 laser marks, so the sculpture contains some 300,000 points.

The sculpture is available exclusively from Crystal Nebulae.
