In The Music of the Sun, renowned academic William J. Chaplin unveils numerous solar secrets through the enlightening new science of helioseismology. The Sun, Earth’s nearest star, is of vital importance not only to our existence, but to our general understanding of astronomy. It acts as an exotic nearby laboratory in which physics can be studied under extreme conditions. Furthermore, helioseismology gives us an unprecedented window into the Sun’s deep interior. Like a musical instrument, trapped sound waves in the Sun’s interior cause vibrations in its exterior, which pulsations give us invaluable new insight into climate change, particle physics and the relationship between the Sun and the Earth.
