Abstract: The Quiet Sun is a misnomer. The constant emergence of new flux that covers virtual all of the solar surface plays a major role in the heating of the chromosphere, transtion region, and corona. The past decade of research has revealed may of its properties, but has raise many new questions about its nature and effects. The paper reviews the status of our understanding of Quiet Sun and points out research areas that the Solar Optical Telescope on Solar B can make major contributions.
