The idea that the most common element in the cosmos—hydrogen—could also be one of the most common on Earth has a certain esthetic appeal; it Takuo Okuchi is correct, it may also be plausible.

Physics Today 51 (3), 19–21 (1998); https://doi.org/10.1063/1.882180

The mystery: How is energy transferred from the Sun's 5800 K photosphere to heat the star's 3 million K corona? One likely mechanism, at least for the quiet Sun, involves shortlived loops of magnetic field that sprout on the solar surface—and resemble some kind of energetic celestial shag carpet.

In a technical conference related to nuclear test ban negotiations in the late 1950s, Soviet and US scientists disagreed along national lines about the capabilities of scientific instruments, the validity of theories and the handling and interpretation of data.

Despite the claims of most of the founding fathers, the appeal at a fundamental level to observers and measurement, so prominent in orthodox quantum theory, is not needed to account for quantum phenomena.

High‐energy physicists have learned much from colliders with beams of protons, antiprotons, electrons and positrons. Now it seems both feasible and useful to build gamma‐gamma and muon‐muon colliders.
