Scientists from this Institute discovered tadpole-shaped jets with intense magnetic fields on the Sun.

[A]. IIT-Mumbai
[B]. IIT-New Delhi
[C]. IIT- Roorkee
[D]. IIT-BHU

Answer: Option D

Explanation:

Scientists led by IIT (BHU) researcher Abhishek Srivastava have discovered tadpole-shaped jets coming out of regions with intense magnetic fields on the Sun. Formally called pseudo-shocks, the "tadpoles" are made entirely of plasma, which accounts for an estimated 99% of the observable universe. It could help understand why corona (Sun's upper atmosphere) is over 200 times hotter than its surface.
