The Chandra readings indicate that the role of convection in magnetic field generation is different to what we thought
NASA’s Chandra X-Ray Observatory was used to study four low-mass red dwarf stars
Readings from NASA’s Chandra X-Ray Observatory are causing astronomers to question our understanding of exactly how the magnetic fields of stars are generated.
Magnetic fields have a big impact on the behavior of stars. They’re instrumental in creating sun spots, and can produce solar storms that damage satellites and power systems back on Earth
