There are several billion stars in the Milky Way galaxy. One of them is the middle-aged G2V yellow dwarf that rules our lives. The Sun Today discusses the Sun's appearance and composition, its internal workings, and the various kinds of radiation it emits, and it puts forward a novel explanation for coronal heating. The book draws on the findings of telescopic observation, space missions, and technical and theoretical advances in many fields, and shows why we need to know more if we are to understand and manage our foothold in the Universe.

Rezensionen
"I would recommend the book to geo- and helio-physicists who are already somewhat familiar with the subject, as the book encapsulates our present knowledge on our closest star that creates the environment supporting our existence and driving dynamics on Earth." (Janusz Sylwester, The Observatory, Vol. 139 (1272), October, 2019)

"The book is brimming with scientific knowledge and captivates by summarizing the latest Sun research results in an understandable way. Each chapter has a detailed list of source references and points to more detailed scientific information. ... The book is a stroke of luck for passionate space researchers and sky watchers." (Joachim J. Kehr, Journal of Space Operations & Communicator, Vol. 16 (2), April 01, 2019)
