NASA and SciAm have some thoughts on the matter:
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

 

The sun's surface is blisteringly hot at 10,340 degrees Fahrenheit — but its atmosphere is another 300 times hotter. This has led to an enduring mystery for those who study the sun: What heats the atmosphere to such extreme temperatures? Normally when you move away from a hot source the environment gets cooler, but some mechanism is clearly at work in the solar atmosphere, the corona, to bring the temperatures up so high.

Clear evidence now suggests that the heating mechanism depends on regular, but intermittent explosive bursts of heat, rather than on continuous gradual heating. This solution to the coronal heating mystery was presented in a media briefing on April 28, 2015, at the Triennial Earth-Sun Summit, or TESS, meeting in Indianapolis, Indiana.


...

 

Jim Klimchuk, a solar scientist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, explained that the new evidence supports a theory that the sun's corona is heated by tiny explosions called nanoflares. These are impulsive heating bursts that individually reach incredibly hot temperatures of some 10 million Kelvins or 18 million degrees Fahrenheit – even greater than the average temperature of the corona – and provide heat to the atmosphere. The research evidence presented by the panel spotted this super hot solar material, called plasma, representative of a nanoflare.

"The explosions are called nanoflares because they have one-billionth the energy of a regular flare," said Klimchuk. "Despite being tiny by solar standards, each packs the wallop of a 10 megaton hydrogen bomb. Millions of them are going off every second across the sun, and collectively they heat the corona."

Although these high coronal temperatures came as a surprise to early observers, it did not take long for theoretical explanations to surface. They fall into three main categories: In the first, the photosphere can be likened to the bubbling surface of boiling water; it is a seething mass of rising and falling columns of hot fluid.
 
 
...
 
 
 
The second theory is really just an elaboration of the first. The bubbling fluid of the photosphere is threaded by magnetic fields, some of which are many thousands of times as intense as Earth's field, but most of which are a good deal weaker. (The fields located near sunspots are the strongest.) The presence of this magnetic field enables the energy from the boiling motion to propagate upward in a variety of ways as magnetohydrodynamic waves.
 
 
...
 
 
 
The third explanation is quite different. In this case the heating is thought to arise from the interaction of the magnetic structure in the lower solar atmosphere with the convective motions mentioned above. The near-surface layers of the sun comprise countless small and large loops of magnetic flux, looking something like the field lines connecting the poles of a bar magnet. As the boiling motion twists and pushes the foot points of the field lines around, strong electric currents are induced along the field lines. The surface layers can thus be viewed as a mass of current-carrying wires, which come to be twisted and braided into a hopelessly tangled mass. Eventually, by a process known as reconnection (which can be thought of as a short-circuiting of the wires), the field lines rearrange themselves into a simpler pattern. In this process, large amounts of energy are released to heat the corona.

Yes I thought that interesting also. Someone in the know will have to tell us or google but I would think it had something to do with the way radiation reacts on the self projected mass of itself in an increasingly expansive way. Something to do with the space between the particles of energy having room to flux in a pure burn...
