Sculpting solar systems

(ESO) Sharp new observations have revealed striking features in planet-forming discs around young stars. The SPHERE instrument, mounted on ESO's Very Large Telescope, has made it possible to observe the complex dynamics of young solar systems. Show More Summary

Sculpting solar systems: SPHERE instrument reveals protoplanetary discs being shaped by newborn planets

Sharp new observations have revealed striking features in planet-forming discs around young stars. The SPHERE instrument, mounted on ESO's Very Large Telescope, has made it possible to observe the complex dynamics of young solar systems. Show More Summary

Image: NASA's SDO performs calibration maneuvers

On Oct. 19, 2016, operators instructed NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, or SDO, to look up and down and then side to side over the course of six hours, as if tracing a great plus sign in space. During this time, SDO produced some unusual data. Show More Summary

NASA's spacecraft catches stunning view of partial solar eclipse from space

A few hours before the Halloween night, NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, or SDO caught an image of a partial solar eclipse and what looks like a rather frightened sun. The blazing body appears to shudder as the moon crosses its path. Show More Summary

Watch the moon shadow the sun with an eclipse seen from space - CNET

Get on board with the Solar Dynamics Observatory for a close look at a spectacular partial solar eclipse.

A Halloween Sun From NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory

NASA combined two pictures of the sun at different wavelengths of extreme ultraviolet light to create a spooky Halloween image.

Generation of Highly Inclined Trans-Neptunian Objects by Planet Nine

Generation of Highly Inclined Trans-Neptunian Objects by Planet Nine Authors: Batygin et al Abstract: The trans-Neptunian region of the solar system exhibits an intricate dynamical structure, much of which can be explained by an instability-driven orbital history of the giant planets.

Video: NASA's SDO watches magnetic arches tower over sun's surface

Massive arches of solar material brighten and stream over an active region on the sun's surface in this animation of imagery captured by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, or SDO, on Sept. 29, 2016.

Can India Learn From Germany’s Solar Experience?

Over the past few years, as the German solar market has slowed to a steady, unsubsidized pace, India has emerged as one of the most dynamic new markets. It wants to build as much as 40 GW rooftop solar by 2022 and a total of 100 GW.Show More Summary

Watch a double eclipse of the sun as seen from outer space - CNET

3 months agoTechnology : CNET: News

It's eclipse season for the Solar Dynamics Observatory, and it's kicking off with both the Earth and the moon passing in front of the sun.

NASA's SDO witnesses a double eclipse

Early in the morning of Sept. 1, 2016, NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, or SDO, caught both Earth and the moon crossing in front of the sun. SDO keeps a constant eye on the sun, but during SDO's semiannual eclipse seasons, Earth briefly blocks SDO's line of sight each day -- a consequence of SDO's geosynchronous orbit.

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

4 months agoTechnology : Forbes: Tech

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
