May 3, 2016 — Earlier this year scientists presented evidence for Planet Nine, a Neptune-mass planet in an elliptical orbit 10 times farther from our Sun than Pluto. Since then theorists have puzzled over how this ... read more

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

Apr. 19, 2016 — Solar flares are intense bursts of light from the sun. They are created when complicated magnetic fields suddenly and explosively rearrange themselves, converting magnetic energy into light through a ... read more

Apr. 19, 2016 — Scientists at NJIT's Big Bear Solar Observatory have captured unprecedented images of a recent solar flare, including bright flare ribbons seen crossing a sunspot followed by 'coronal ... read more

Apr. 14, 2016 — A dust detector on the Cassini space probe -- known as the cosmic dust analyzer (CDA) -- has identified several extremely rare and minuscule particles of interstellar dust from outside our solar ... read more

Apr. 5, 2016 — In addition to its history-making encounter with Pluto last July, the New Horizons spacecraft also recorded significant changes in how the solar wind behaves far from the ... read more

Mar. 24, 2016 — Every now and then large sun storms strike the Earth where they cause aurora and in rare cases power cuts. These events are, however, nothing compared to the apocalyptic destruction we would ... read more

Mar. 23, 2016 — Solar storms trigger Jupiter's intense 'Northern Lights' by generating a new X-ray aurora that is eight times brighter than normal and hundreds of times more energetic than ... read more

Mar. 16, 2016 — Nearly four billion years ago, life arose on Earth. Life appeared because our planet had a rocky surface, liquid water, and a blanketing atmosphere. But life thrived thanks to another necessary ... read more

Mar. 10, 2016 — MAVEN's magnetometer conducted observations of comet C/2013 A1 (Siding Spring) with Mars in October 2014, during the comet's remarkably close ... 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

Dust Grains Could Be Remnants of Stellar Explosions Billions of Years Ago

Mar. 8, 2016 — Microscopic dust particles have been found in meteoritic material on Earth, particles that were likely formed in stellar explosions that occurred long before the creation of our star, the sun. ... read more

Mar. 1, 2016 — Researchers have successfully profiled passage of a magnetic cloud within a mass ejection event from the sun. This success in the accurate simulation of a magnetic flux rope's arrival on Earth ... read more

Feb. 26, 2016 — A new study uses IBEX data and simulations of the interstellar boundary -- which lies at the very edge of the giant magnetic bubble surrounding our solar system called the heliosphere - to better ... read more

Feb. 17, 2016 — Astronomers have discovered a new source that confirmed the fact that binary systems with strong colliding stellar winds comprise a separate new population of high-energy gamma-ray ... read more

Jan. 30, 2016 — Scientists have turned to a combination of real time observations and computer simulations to best analyze how material courses through the ... read more

Jan. 19, 2016 — About 600 miles from Earth's surface is the first of two donut-shaped electron swarms, known as the Van Allen Belts, or the radiation belts. Understanding the shape and size of the belts, which ... 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
