    That was really very interesting. I have always been interested in knowing unique analysis of the sun.

    Each element has its own spectrum. They are all superimposed, so we detect them added together into a composite. He is saying that after finding the proper mix of chemicals that comes closest to the spectrogram and then subtracting it out, 15% of the original spectral lines remain, but they don't fit the signature of any known chemicals. It means this is a puzzle that remains unsolved, in spite of the long history of studying the sun.
