This document describes the nature and properties of the sun, its corona, and the solar wind. Students can read how the sun's energy comes from nuclear fusion and how its uneven rotation and churning of its upper layers produces sunspots. The sun's corona is described, and its anomalously high temperature when compared with deeper regions is pointed out. The site also describes how plasma from the corona flows away from the sun to form the solar wind and the interplanetary magnetic field. Links to historical timelines on solar research and to a glossary are included. A Spanish translation is available.
