Computer simulation of solar oscillations

Computer simulation showing oscillations on the surface of the Sun. The Suns surface is known to oscillate up and down like the surface of a wobbling jelly. The effect is due to the presence of sound waves of different frequencies, bouncing back & forth within the Sun. This simulation shows a combination of only 100 modes of oscillation; ten million different modes are known to exist. The height of the oscillations has been exaggerated by a factor of 1000 in this image. Each of these bumps moves up and down once every 5 minutes or so; the exact period of oscillation of each mode carries information on the structure & dynamics of the interior of the Sun

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases a computer simulation of solar oscillations, offering us a mesmerizing glimpse into the dynamic nature of our Sun. The image vividly portrays the surface of the Sun oscillating up and down, resembling the wobbling motion of a jelly. These oscillations are caused by sound waves with varying frequencies bouncing back and forth within our star. In this simulation, we witness an amalgamation of only 100 modes of oscillation; however, it is astonishing to note that there exist ten million different modes in reality. To emphasize these fascinating movements for visual clarity, the height of each oscillation has been magnified by a factor of 1000. Each bump depicted in this image represents an individual mode that undergoes upward and downward movement approximately every five minutes. Remarkably, the precise period at which each mode oscillates carries valuable information about the intricate structure and dynamics unfolding deep within the Sun's core. As we delve into this awe-inspiring portrayal captured by Science Photo Library, we find ourselves immersed in both science and artistry. It serves as a testament to humanity's relentless pursuit to unravel celestial mysteries while reminding us of the sheer beauty inherent in our universe – where even something as immense as our sun can exhibit delicate vibrations like ripples on water's surface.
