First, some data about our sun :
  Radius is 700,000 km, with a core temp of 15 millions deg K.
  Sun's "athmosphere" is composed of three layers :
  - the photosphere, 100 km thick,around 6,000 deg K. This is what we see as the external form of the sun. We cannot see or measure directly what is below.
  - the chromosphere, 1,000 to 2,000 km, up to 10,000 deg K.
  - the corona, with two parts : the internal corona , up to 100,000 km and up to 1,5 million deg K. and the external corona, extending far (up to 3 million km) with decreasing temperature.
  The article quoted here (3,6 Billion Deg in Lab) remind me about RHIC experiment (Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider) which has been designed to explore some of the Nature's most basic and most intriguing ingredient and phenomena. This experiment is using two beams of gold ions traveling at near speed of light in opposite direction, and have them colliding in order to produce the very early universe condition where quarks and gluons are no more confined, therefore creating a quark-gluon plasma for a duration of a few billionth of a second. Then, the expected temperature might exceed 1000 billions degre.
  see :
   I think the experiment at Sandia National Laboratories dealt with ion plasma.

  Krsanna and all,
I got this post in another Forum this morning, I was a little taken back 
by the details and thought other might care to read of this "record setting 

Record Set for Hottest Temperature on Earth: 3.6 Billion Degrees in Lab - 

Maybe Jacques will furnish a view in regard to Solar Corona temp.'s vis a viz 
interior solar temp.s and if there is a similar order of magnitude of change?

PS: something about the article makes me go "o_O" lol!
