The Planetarium at The University of Texas at Arlington is using NASA funding to explore the mysteries of Earth’s closest and most important star in “Magnificent Sun,” an original feature film set to premier Thursday. The 45-minute planetarium show is the third in a series developed by Manfred Cuntz , a UT Arlington associate professor of physics, and the planetarium staff over the past three years. Funding for “Magnificent Sun” came from a $ 30,000 public outreach supplemental grant from NASA’s Solar and Heliospheric Physics program. Cuntz’s research, conducted with solar physicist David Hathaway of NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala., focuses on the structure of the solar surface, particularly convective patterns.
