Apr. 26, 2017 — From long jets to massive explosions of solar material and energy, eruptions on the sun come in many shapes and sizes. Scientists now propose that a universal mechanism can explain the whole spectrum ... read more

Apr. 26, 2017 — Scientists have discovered a new planet with the mass of Earth, orbiting its star at the same distance that we orbit our sun. The planet is likely far too cold to be habitable for life as we know it, ... read more

Apr. 26, 2017 — In the case of solar system bodies passing close to the sun, there are two important effects playing a crucial role in the orbital evolution. One of the effects is from the general relativity and the ... read more

Apr. 24, 2017 — New data from three NASA missions show that the heliosphere -- the bubble of the Sun's magnetic influence that surrounds the inner solar system -- may be much more compact and rounded than ... read more

Apr. 20, 2017 — Storms from the sun can affect our power grids, railway systems and underground pipelines. Now scientists and engineers from NASA have assessed the state of science surrounding space ... read more

Apr. 18, 2017 — Astronomers have reported the first detections of diffuse hydrogen wafting about in a vast halo surrounding the Milky ... read more

Apr. 17, 2017 — Scientists hope to take advantage of LISA Pathfinder's record-breaking sensitivity to acceleration to map out the distribution of tiny dust particles shed by asteroids and comets far from ... read more

Apr. 18, 2017 — Researchers have identified a new mineral in the oldest solar system solids from primitive meteorites. They've named it "rubinite" after Dr. Alan E. Rubin, a pioneering cosmochemist at ... read more

Apr. 12, 2017 — Using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), astronomers have revealed extraordinary details about a recently discovered far-flung member of our solar system, the planetary body ... read more

Scientist Measures Brightness of the Universe With NASA's New Horizons Spacecraft

Apr. 11, 2017 — Images taken by NASA's New Horizons mission on its way to Pluto, and now the Kuiper Belt, have given scientists an unexpected tool for measuring the brightness of all the galaxies in the ... read more

Apr. 10, 2017 — Mars has electrically charged metal atoms (ions) high in its atmosphere, according to new results. The metal ions can reveal previously invisible activity in the mysterious electrically charged upper ... read more

Apr. 10, 2017 — A composite image of Uranus by Voyager 2 and two different observations made by Hubble shows one for the ring and one for the auroras found around the ... read more
