Nasa's Parker Solar Probe
James F. Drake and Marc Swisdak - New Study Identifies Mechanism Driving the Sun's Fast Wind -- The research team, co-led by James Drake and Stuart Bale of UC Berkeley, used data from NASA's Parker Solar Probe to explain how the solar wind is capable of surpassing speeds of 1 million miles per hour. They found that the energy released from the magnetic field near the sun’s surface is powerful enough to drive the fast solar wind.
