Fun in the Sun

The Hinode (Japanese for sunrise) spacecraft (previously Solar-B) has snapped the first test images of it's three year mission to study the sun. In honor of this event Top Men of course bring you the most interesting of these first images, but also a unique video that zooms down into a sunspot. The movie is not from Hinode data, but what the heck - it's amazing.
