SoftBank buys robotics leader Boston Dynamics from Alphabet

TOKYO (AP) — Japanese internet, solar and technology company SoftBank Group Corp. is buying robotics pioneer Boston Dynamics from Alphabet Inc., Google's parent. Boston Dynamics makes various robots, including Big Dog and Spot, complex machines that walk and trot on four legs, as well as Atlas, which walks on two legs like a human.

SDO sees partial eclipse in space

On May 25, 2017, NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, or SDO, saw a partial solar eclipse in space when it caught the moon passing in front of the sun. The lunar transit lasted almost an hour, between 2:24 and 3:17 p.m. EDT, with the moon covering about 89 percent of the sun at the peak of its journey across the sun's face. Show More Summary

Astronomers Observe Rare Blank Sun, Warn of Solar Minimum

NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory captured a stunning image of a rare phenomenon which some scientists say is a sure sign of the oncoming solar minimum. The solar minimum is a regularly-occurring phase of the solar cycle which marks a low point in solar activity. That means solar...

NASA --Rise & Fall of the Sun's Current Solar Cycle (WATCH Video)

The Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) has now captured nearly seven years worth of ultra-high resolution solar footage. This time lapse shows that full run from two of SDO's instruments. The large orange sun is visible light captured by HMI. The...        

Seven years of Solar Dynamics

4 months agoNews : Slugger O'Toole

It seems like only yesterday that I was noting First Light on Nasa’s Solar Dynamics Observatory [SDO], and the early hours of this morning for ‘three years in three minutes‘ and ‘SDO Year 4‘.  In fact the SDO was launched on 11 Feb 2010, with First Light in April of that year. [Seven long years… more...

New space weather model helps simulate magnetic structure of solar storms

The dynamic space environment that surrounds Earth - the space our astronauts and spacecraft travel through - can be rattled by huge solar eruptions from the sun, which spew giant clouds of magnetic energy and plasma, a hot gas of electrically charged particles, out into space. Show More Summary

Solar At The Beginning Of 2016 Vs Solar At The End Of 2016

Sometimes solar energy seems to be on a tear. Then suddenly the industry is on the verge of collapse. This dynamic is known as the Solarcoaster. While 2016 was a wild ride for all of us, the volatility was more pronounced in renewables than in most sectors.

NASA Solar Dynamics Observatory --Earth is Putting the "Brakes" On Sun's Rotation

Astronomers from the University of Hawaii Institute for Astronomy (IfA), Brazil, and Stanford University may have solved a long-standing solar mystery. Two decades ago, scientists discovered that the outer five percent of the sun spins more slowly than the rest...        

NASA just spotted a massive hole growing on the surface of the sun — here’s what it means

NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory just spotted a massive hole on the sun surface called a coronal hole. The hole appears black because it's cooler than its surroundings, and is responsible for high-speed solar winds that can sometimes...Show More Summary

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
