NASA's Solar Observatory Freaked Out But Everything's OK Now

After more than a week offline, NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory — the sun-watching spacecraft responsible for these close-up images of solar flares, fire and loops — is back. But just what caused it to glitch in the first place? More »      

NASA's Solar Observatory Freaked Out But It's Not Because of the Apocalypse

After more than a week offline, NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory—the sun-watching spacecraft responsible for these close-up images of solar flares, fire, and loops—is back. But just what caused it to glitch in the first place? Read more...

How NASA's Juno Will Teach Us About Other Solar Systems

Long the Big Kahuna, Jupiter is not only key to unlocking our own solar system’s formation history, but understanding the dynamics of other solar systems as well. NASA’s JUNO spacecraft --- now on the verge of doing real science from...Show More Summary

Why Home Solar Panels No Longer Pay in Some States

Utility regulators are upending the financial dynamics of residential solar as they try to meet their obligations to customers who don’t have roof panels.

NASA Captures Sun’s Strongest Flares in 2016

Beautiful bursts on the solar surface, invisible to the human eye, have been recorded in high-resolution video by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory at the early-July peak of the sun’s activity this year.

The Inclination of the Gas Giants in the Solar System Constrains Planet Nine

The inclination of the planetary system relative to the solar equator may be explained by the presence of Planet 9Authors:Gomes et alAbstract:We evaluate the effects of a distant planet, commonly known as planet 9, on the dynamics of the giant planets of the Solar System. Show More Summary

This is what the sun would look like if it were somersaulting through space

For seven hours on July 6, NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) did a 360 degree spin, on one axis, through space. By taking images every 12 seconds and then colorizing the ultraviolet wavelengths of the photo in gold, NASA created...Show More Summary

Solar Forecast for China and India: Strong, But Challenging

San Francisco, CA--India and China will be two of the most dynamic solar markets in the world over the next decade, but risks abound, according to analysts at Intersolar, taking place this week in San Francisco. India, for instance, has set a goal of having 175 GW of renewable capacity by [...]

Don't Panic, But A Giant Hole Just Formed In The Sun

last monthNews : Huffington Post

While it looks and sounds worrying, there’s nothing to fear here. A massive new “hole in the sun," or a big patch of black in the corona, was spotted on Monday by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory. But as Tom Yulsman of Discover’s ImaGeo...Show More Summary

The Winds Are Changing for Renewable Energy

Red states won’t abandon their resistance to renewable mandates, but over time, the growing economic dynamism of solar and wind energy could compel a more balanced approach.

NASA's SDO watches twisting solar material over sun's surface

Solar material twists above the sun's surface in this close-up captured by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory on June 7-8, 2016, showcasing the turbulence caused by combative magnetic forces on the sun. This spinning cloud of solar material is part of a dark filament angling down from the upper left of the frame. Show More Summary

NASA’s Solar Dynamic Observatory Captures Mercury’s Transit Between Earth and the Sun

3 months agoHumor / odd : Laughing Squid

NASA‘s Solar Dynamics Observatory captured the planet Mercury’s May 9, 2016 transit between the Earth and Sun. The transit occurred between approximately 7:12 a.m. and 2:42 p.m. EDT, and the video shows the event across a number of different wavelengths. Mercury passes between the Earth and Sun like this about 13 times per century. Host […]
