The “rain” you are seeing is other elements being reduced down to helium. It can fuse hydrogen or reduce iron down to helium. The helium is produced by other material “up there”(coming in from space) . This is all the dust, gas plasma and missing material that they cannot see which is why they need their “dark matter” theories. Just because you cannot detect something does not mean that it is not there. You don’t see the Ninja until he cuts your throat (lolz). Here is the article mentioned:
Stars make all the elements from Hydrogen (H) up to lead (Pb) but they are still not completely clear on the full mechanism;
"No single theory yet explains both the sharp resonance in 3He and the smooth increase up to heavier elements; two processes seem to occur. Sometimes the efficient acceleration even exhausts the rare 3He in the source region, limiting its fluence".
We are truly star dust. In fact heavier elements like gold are made in supernova events or when neutron stars merge. It is a very rare event even in a universe as big as ours…which is why gold is so precious. The element 3He (Helium-3) is a light, stable isotope of helium with two protons and one neutron. Other than protium, 3He (Helium-3) is the only stable isotope of any element with more protons than neutrons. 3He (Helium-3) was discovered in 1939.
Hydrogen is obviously one electron and one proton. Hydrogen is the most abundant chemical substance in the universe, constituting roughly 75% of all normal matter (that they can detect). Stars such as the Sun are mainly composed of hydrogen in the plasma state. Most of the hydrogen on Earth exists in molecular forms such as water and organic compounds. For the most common isotope of hydrogen (symbol 1H) each atom has one proton, one electron, and no neutrons.
Ben says the following about this paper….
"......the paper is about the elemental production in solar flares. The paper discusses the elements all the way up to lead but its value is more generally understood in terms of how stars truly are element production factories meaning that to whatever extent they already know that nova level isotopes are on earth it's actually to a much greater degree than that and when the galactic current sheet does more than just the extra helium production and shifting coronal magnetic fields that we have already seen and covered on the channel the change in coronal chemistry could quickly create the shell that needed to be blasted off in the solar micronova nice to see things tie together even if the picture it's painting is horrifying".
We are going to learn so much from having the sun explode in our face. It is so exciting (lolz).
