Sun's surface - Spectacular Video

Ever imagined how sun's surface will look like? The only imagination that I had was what I had seen in Star Trek. The real thing is simply amazing.

Scientists in Japan have released dramatic video of the surface of the sun.

The pictures come from the Hinode (SolarB) satellite and show explosions above a sunspot.

Watch it here


If only we could hear the sound associated with those blasts. I am sure it will be deafening. Though I don't think it is possible to capture it in space. My understanding is that sound waves do not travel in space since there is no medium. Please correct me if I am wrong.
