This summer, millions in North America were treated to one of nature’s most beautiful phenomena—a total eclipse of the sun. Attempts to understand the processes that govern the formation and evolution of the sun have revealed hidden aspects of reality that have pushed science forward and provided tools that reveal new connections between our lives and a cosmos that we are only just beginning to truly understand. The object that inspired the ancients continues to inspire us at the forefront of science today.
