Getting under the skin of the solar enigma 20.10.2014 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Last month, the Borexino experiment with a large detector located deep underground at the Gran Sasso laboratory in Italy reported spectral observations of so-called pp neutrinos, demonstrating that 99 percent of the power emitted by the Sun is generated by the proton-proton nuclear fusion reactions at the solar core. It was just 75 years ago, when Hans Bethe, Von Weizsacker and others, in 1939, showed by calculation of nuclear reaction rates that the fusion of hydrogen to helium via the pp cycle releases the required energy to power the Sun's enormous radiation. Kelvin and Helmholtz suggested that the Sun releases energy by slow gravitational contraction, but even if it had contracted from infinite size to its present radius, the energy would have lasted hardly thirty million years, too short by geological time scales. Laws of energy Sun is predominantly composed of lighter elements like hydrogen and it became clear that nuclear reactions converting hydrogen to helium at the hot solar core could provide ...
