Hexbyte Glen Cove Sounding rocket CLASP2 elucidates solar magnetic field

Measuring the magnetic field strength at four different heights (horizontal planes) by using data from the CLASP2 and Hinode space telescopes allowed astronomers to map the spreading of magnetic field lines (shown in green) in the chromosphere.
