This past semester the physics department began a study of the solar wind. Photographic plates have been sent up by balloon during periods of both maximum and minimum solar activity. The tracks made by high-energy particles on these 3mulsions are to be located and analyzed. Unfortunately, since the plates have yet to arrive, only a little practice scanning was done to become familiar with the technique. Meanwhile, an attempt has been made to gather information ab::mt the sun and the solar wind. This paper is a part of that work.
