The dynamics of Germany’s renewables-heavy grid may be stressful for its operators but the country has been stitching all the changes together into a remarkably consistent and reliable stream of electricity for German customers.
Dynamics of highly-flexible solar sail subjected to various forcesAuthors:Liu et alAbstract:Solar sail is a novel spacecraft and has the potential applications in the near future. The large amplitude vibration should be considered because it is characterized by its huge and lightweight structure. Show More Summary
The sun emitted a mid-level solar flare, peaking at 12:20 p.m. EDT on July 8, 2014, and NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory captured images of the event. Solar flares are powerful bursts of radiation. Harmful radiation from a flare cannot...Show More Summary
This is a composite image from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory that shows a series of significant solar eruptions occurring over a three-day period in January, 2013. The photo has light wavelengths that are colored in red, green and blue to better outline the eruption dynamics. Show More Summary
Latin America is one of the world's hottest solar markets, but unique market dynamics challenge new projects. Here are three lessons learned to help developers succeed. 3 Lessons Learned From Latin America’s Red-Hot Solar Market wasShow More Summary
Last year, a trio of sun-gazers — SOHO, STEREO and Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) — captured unusual eruptions of plasma being "puffed" from the sun's corona. The GIF comes from SDO and shows the jets that caused the puffs. Read more...
A suite of Sun-gazing spacecraft, SOHO, STEREO and Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), have spotted an unusual series of eruptions in which a series of fast 'puffs' force the slow ejection of a massive burst of plasma from the Sun's corona. The eruptions took place over a period of three days, starting on 17 January 2013.
SPACE: Nasa captures powerful X-class solar flares emitted by the sun. Nasa’s Solar Dynamics Observatory observed the sun as a significant solar flare burst from its left side, peaking at 7.42 am EDT on 10 June. The sun then released a second X-class flare which peaked just over an hour later at 8.52am. The third, [...]
Starting on June 10, the sun emitted a series of powerful solar flares, known as "X-Class" flares, which were observed in brilliant colors by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory. The flares erupted from the left side of the sun, twiceShow More Summary
The sun emitted a significant solar flare, peaking at 7:42 a.m. EDT on June 10, 2014. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory – which typically observes the entire sun 24 hours a day -- captured images of the flare. Solar flares are powerful bursts of radiation. Show More Summary
NASA released a remarkable video from its Solar Dynamics Observatory of a flare erupting from the sun. The "graceful" eruption took place on April 2, 2014.

There's a big square "hole" in the sun this week, according to NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory. The dark spot in the sun's outer atmosphere is a phenomenon known as a "coronal hole," a gap in the magnetic field where solar wind rushes out, reports Space.com. In the hole, which...
The NASA Solar Dynamics Observatory has found a strange coronal hole in the Sun, "almost square in its shape." I don't know about you, but this square phenomenon freaks me out a bit. It looks like the Sun is some kind of fake LED disco ball and one panel is failing. Here's the video. Read more...
The sun emitted a mid-level solar flare, peaking at 6:07 a.m. EDT on May 8, 2014, and NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, or SDO, captured images of it. Solar flares are powerful bursts of radiation. Harmful radiation from a flare cannot...Show More Summary
A Solar Dynamics Observatory video of the recent flare is a deceptively-tranquil vision of colossal energy eruption. A massive X1.4 flare is part of the highest intensity of flares releasing huge amounts of energy, yet the filaments are weirdly soothing. Read more...
Instruments on NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded video of "prominence eruptions" blasting off the surface of the sun.
The always cool Yeti Dynamics has released another brilliant scientific simulation: What would Earth's sky look like if Saturn went off its orbit to race into the inner solar system on its way to the Sun and our planet was on its path? I just love these impossible but visually arresting scenarios. Read more...
