Researchers, including IIT (BHU) solar scientist Abhishek Srivastava, using NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory data observed a new type of magnetic explosion, called forced or controlled magnetic reconnection. The new type of the explosion is the first-ever seen to be triggered by a nearby eruption. "This was the first observation of an external driver of magnetic reconnection," Srivastava said.
