Scientists have combined NASA data and cutting-edge image processing to gain new insight into the solar structures that create the Sun’s flow of high-speed solar wind, detailed in new research published today in The Astrophysical Journal.
In 2021, the US Postal Service is showcasing the Sun’s many faces with a series of Sun Science forever stamps that show images of solar activity captured by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, or SDO.
NASA and the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Republic of Poland have agreed to cooperate on a NASA heliophysics mission, the Interstellar Mapping and Acceleration Probe (IMAP).
On Jan. 13, 2021, NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory experienced its first lunar transit of the year when the Moon crossed its view of the Sun.
A secret behind the workings of sunquakes – seismic activity on the Sun during solar flares – might be hidden beneath the solar surface.
NASA has approved two heliophysics missions to explore the Sun and the system that drives space weather near Earth.
NASA’s Aeronomy of Ice in the Mesosphere mission — AIM for short — spotted the summer’s first noctilucent, or night-shining, clouds on Dec. 8, 2020.
Researchers may have found the long-sought “nanoflares” thought to heat the solar corona to its incredible temperatures.
As Chile and Argentina witnessed the total solar eclipse on Dec. 14, 2020, unbeknownst to skywatchers, a little tiny speck was flying past the Sun — a recently discovered comet.
On Dec. 14, 2020, the Moon’s shadow raced across Chile and Argentina, casting a thin ribbon of land into brief, mid-day darkness. One week before, a group of scientists predicted how the corona would look during this particular eclipse.
Aug. 21, 2017, marked a unique opportunity for scientists in the contiguous U.S. — for the first time in nearly a century, a total solar eclipse would sweep coast to coast, providing scientists under the path of totality with a rare chance to study the Sun and Earth in uncommon ways.
La NASA proporcionará cobertura en vivo el lunes 14 de diciembre de un eclipse solar que pasará sobre América del Sur y obsequiará a partes de Chile y Argentina con vistas de un eclipse total de Sol.
NASA will provide live coverage Monday, Dec. 14, of a solar eclipse that will pass over South America, treating parts of Chile and Argentina to views of a total eclipse of the Sun.
NASA has selected two SmallSat missions – a study of Earth’s outer most atmosphere and a solar sail spaceflight test mission – to share a ride to space in 2025 with the agency’s Interstellar Mapping and Acceleration Probe (IMAP).
