Nearby Star Releases Mother of all Solar Flares

NASA’s Swift satellite spotted the strongest, hottest, and longest-lasting solar flare ever recorded from a nearby red dwarf star in April. And now, astrophysicists reveal that the flares were as much as 10,000 times more powerful than the largest solar flare ever recorded, reaching temperatures up to 360 million degrees Fahrenheit. That’s 12 times hotter than the sun’s core.
