NASA Footage Shows The Nuclear Fire Of Our Sun

Get seriously mellow with this large dose of #SpacePorn

Turn off the Dark Side Of The Moon, switch over from Fantasia, we have found the Trippiest video in the universe (quite literally).

This video, released by Nasa yesterday may look like a CGI effect, but is actually a ultra-high definition satellite video of our very own sun.

“It’s always shining, always ablaze with light and energy. In the ubiquity of solar output, Earth swims in an endless tide of particles” NASA said of the footage.

“The video presents the nuclear fire of our life-giving star in intimate detail, offering new perspective into our own relationships with grand forces of the solar system.”

Lars Leonhard provides the spaced out music behind this 30 minutes of mindblowing footage.

If you want our advice however? Click the mute button, make it full screen and sit back with this song on full volume.

You’re welcome.
