Mechanism of Explosions and Plasma Jets Associated With Sunspot Formation Revealed

Sep. 30, 2015 — Sunspots are planet-sized conglomerates of bundles of intense magnetic field lines on the surface of the Sun. They are known to cause explosions (solar flares) which can directly impact our ... read more

Sep. 29, 2015 — Walking an obstacle course on Earth is relatively easy. Walking an obstacle course after being in space for six months isn't so simple. NASA's Human Research Program is focusing on ... read more

New Precise Particle Measurement Improves Subatomic Tool for Probing Mysteries of Universe

Sep. 29, 2015 — In a post-Big Bang world, nature's top quark -- a key component of matter -- is a highly sensitive probe that physicists use to evaluate competing theories about quantum interactions. Now a new ... read more

Sep. 29, 2015 — Earth-like planets orbiting close to small stars probably have magnetic fields that protect them from stellar radiation and help maintain surface conditions that could be conducive to life, according ... read more

Sep. 28, 2015 — New findings from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) provide the strongest evidence yet that liquid water flows intermittently on present-day Mars. Using an imaging spectrometer on MRO, ... read more
