NASA improves current technology to accurately track solar flares

NASA scientists have made a breakthrough in their quest to be able to accurately predict and forecast potentially harmful solar storms. Researchers were able to improve upon an already existing tool in order to render it more accurate: the coronagraph. The coronagraph is an instrument which has been built to let scientists examine the outer atmosphere of the sun, the corona, and help them recognize the signs of an impending coronal mass ejection (CME).
