        NASA missions make unprecedented map of Sun's magnetic field

        Greenbelt MD (SPX) Feb 19, 2021
        For decades after its discovery, observers could only see the solar chromosphere for a few fleeting moments: during a total solar eclipse, when a bright red glow ringed the Moon's silhouette. More than a hundred years later, the chromosphere remains the most mysterious of the Sun's atmospheric layers. Sandwiched between the bright surface and the ethereal solar corona, the Sun's outer atmosphere, the chromosphere is a place of rapid change, where temperature rises and magnetic fields begin to domi ... read more

        Solar activity reconstructed over a millennium
        Zurich, Switzerland (SPX) Jan 20, 2021
        What goes on in the sun can only be observed indirectly. Sunspots, for instance, reveal the degree of solar activity - the more sunspots are visible on the surface of the sun, the more active is our ... more

        The upside of volatile space weather

        Evanston IL (SPX) Dec 22, 2020
        Although violent and unpredictable, stellar flares emitted by a planet's host star do not necessarily prevent life from forming, according to a new Northwestern University study. Emitted by stars, stellar flares are sudden flashes of magnetic energy. On Earth, the sun's flares sometimes damage satellites and disrupt radio communications. Elsewhere in the universe, however, robust stellar flares also have the ability to deplete and destroy atmospheric gases, such as ozone. The destruction of gases ... read more
