Workspace Method sunsAddSingleBlackbody


Adds a single blackbody to suns

Important note:
For a Sol-like sun there are huge differences in the UV-range 
between the actual sun spectrum and the blackbody spectrumwith the effective temperature of the sun. The blackbody sun"strongly overestimates the UV radiation.
