Rare Transit of Mercury to Take Place on 9 May

Apr. 27, 2016 — On 9 May there will be a rare transit of Mercury, when the smallest planet in our Solar System will pass directly between the Earth and the Sun. The last time this happened was in 2006, and the next ... read more

Mar. 8, 2016 — NASA recently selected a miniaturized version of the original X-ray camera to fly as a CubeSat mission to study Earth's magnetic cusps -- regions in the magnetic cocoon around our planet near ... read more

Dec. 23, 2015 — ... read more

Dec. 18, 2015 — Just under four months into the science phase of the mission, NASA's Magnetospheric Multiscale, or MMS, is delivering promising early results on a process called magnetic reconnection -- a kind ... read more

Dec. 3, 2015 — Observations with the upgraded VLA radio telescope provide strong support for a proposed mechanism by which solar flares accelerate particles to nearly the speed of ... read more

Dec. 3, 2015 — The Sun demonstrates the potential to superflare, new research into stellar flaring suggests. New research has found a stellar superflare on a star observed by NASA's Kepler space telescope with ... read more

Nov. 30, 2015 — The lunar space environment is much more active than previously assumed. The solar wind is reflected from the surface and crustal magnetic fields of the moon which has effects on for instance lunar ... read more

Nov. 19, 2015 — Astronomers have discovered that a dim, cool dwarf star is generating a surprisingly powerful magnetic ... read more

Nov. 18, 2015 — The most Earth-like planet could have been made uninhabitable by vast quantities of radiation.The atmosphere of the planet, Kepler-438b, is thought to have been stripped away as a result of radiation ... read more

Milestone in Predicting Solar Flares

Nov. 16, 2015 — Astronomers have devised a high-precision method of examining magnetic fields in the Sun’s atmosphere, representing a significant leap forward in the investigation of solar flares and potentially ... read more

Oct. 29, 2015 — The biggest surprise so far in the chemical analysis of Comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko's atmosphere is the high proportion of oxygen molecules. While such molecules are common in the earth's ... read more

Oct. 29, 2015 — A massive star, 25 times the mass of the sun, is forming in a similar way to low-mass stars, astronomers have discovered. The research is one of the final pieces of the puzzle in understanding the ... read more

Oct. 26, 2015 — Solar storms and the particles they release result in spectacular phenomena such as auroras, but they can also pose a serious risk to our society. In extreme cases they have caused major power ... read more

Oct. 20, 2015 — Astronomers present for the first time a movie that shows the evolution of stellar spots on a star other than our Sun. The long-term, highly-sampled, phase-resolved spectroscopic data were made ... read more

Oct. 16, 2015 — According to observations from the Tihany Magnetic Observatory in Hungary, the indices used by scientists to assess the Sun's geomagnetic perturbations to Earth are unable to detect some of ... read more

Oct. 13, 2015 — We can't see the wind, but we can learn about it by observing things that are being blown about. And by studying changes in a comet's bright tail of gas and ions, scientists are on the ... read more

Oct. 7, 2015 — Thanks to a lucky conjunction of two satellites, a ground-based array of all-sky cameras, and some spectacular aurora borealis, researchers have uncovered evidence for an unexpected role that ... read more

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. 23, 2015 — Observations revealed that the unusually large magnetosphere around an O-type star called NGC 1624-2 contains a raging storm of extreme stellar winds and dense plasma that gobbles up X-rays before ... read more

Sep. 15, 2015 — The natural, 11-year cycle of solar activity is apparently influencing long-term climate fluctuations in the Northern Hemisphere. An international team of scientists has shown that the so-called ... read more
