Watch This Visualization of the Sun's Invisible Magnetic Field

2 days agoHumor / odd : mental_floss

NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center provides a color-coded view of the Sun's magnetic activity.

New insights into the solar magnetic dynamo

From NASA/GODDARD SPACE FLIGHT CENTER NASA: Understanding the magnetic sun The surface of the sun writhes and dances. Far from the still, whitish-yellow disk it appears to be from the ground, the sun sports twisting, towering loops and swirling cyclones that reach into the solar upper atmosphere, the million-degree corona – but these cannot be…

NASA: Understanding the Sun's Electromagnetic Field --"Crucial for Future Space Travel"

"We're not sure exactly where in the sun the magnetic field is created," said Dean Pesnell, a space scientist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. "It could be close to the solar surface or deep inside the.....

NASA Webb Telescope mirrors installed with robotic arm precision

Inside a massive clean room at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland the James Webb Space Telescope team is steadily installing the largest space telescope mirror ever. Unlike other space telescope mirrors, this one must be pieced together from segments using a high-precision robotic arm. read more

Former Hurricane Pali peters out near Equator

Imagery from NOAA's GOES-West satellite has shown that former Hurricane Pali has petered out near the Equator. The NASA/NOAA GOES Project at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland created an image of the remnant clouds of former Hurricane Pali from NOAA's GOES-West satellite data.

Formation of an unusual off-season North Atlantic Hurricane

From NASA/GODDARD SPACE FLIGHT CENTER: The low pressure area known as System 90L developed rapidly since Jan. 13 and became Hurricane Alex on Jan. 14. Several satellites and instruments captured data on this out-of-season storm. NASA’s RapidScat instrument observed sustained winds shift and intensify in the system and NASA’s Aqua satellite saw the storm develop…

James Webb Space Telescope mirror halfway complete

Inside NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center's massive clean room in Greenbelt, Maryland, the ninth flight mirror was installed onto the telescope structure with a robotic arm. This marks the halfway completion point for the James WebbShow More Summary

Study from Marvel and Schmidt: Examination of Earth’s recent history key to predicting global temperatures

From NASA/GODDARD SPACE FLIGHT CENTER Estimates of future global temperatures based on recent observations must account for the differing characteristics of each important driver of recent climate change, according to a new NASA study published Dec. 14 in the journal Nature Climate Change. To quantify climate change, researchers need to know the Transient Climate Response (TCR)…

Antarctica Is Gaining Ice, Creating a Climate Change Mystery

A new NASA study found that Antarctica is gaining more ice than it’s losing. But that isn’t a sign that climate change is slowing down.A team of researchers from NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, the University of Maryland in College Park and Maryland-based engineering firm Sigma Space Corp

Ozone hole worse than in recent years – due to colder than normal stratosphere in Antarctica

A couple of days ago we ran a piece at WUWT: Did We Really Save the Ozone Layer? In light of this press release, the question is worth pondering again. From the NASA/GODDARD SPACE FLIGHT CENTER Annual Antarctic ozone hole larger and formed later in 2015 The 2015 Antarctic ozone hole area was larger and formed later…

NASA: current El Niño ‘appears likely to equal the event of 1997-98’

From NASA Goddard and JPL: NASA studying 2015 El Niño event as never before NASA/GODDARD SPACE FLIGHT CENTER Every two to seven years, an unusually warm pool of water — sometimes two to three degrees Celsius higher than normal develops across the eastern tropical Pacific Ocean to create a natural short-term climate change event. This…
