The price of solar generated electricity is falling. It may be about to fall even further. Bloomberg reports that the main ingredient in a solar cell, polysilicon, is now at a record low. Prices have fallen 31% this year, according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance. Taking a page from OPEC, [...]
NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory captures stunning images of the solar surface.
For stunning, jaw-dropping images of the sun, it's hard to top NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory.
x Daang, NASA. Using images of the sun taken in space, NASA constructed this super-detailed view of what the star looks like. In space, NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, or SDO,… Tags: NASA, sun
NASA released a video of the sun created from still images taken by its space-based telescope, the Solar Dynamics Observatory. The labor intensive process takes 10 hours to make one minute of video.
The Solar Dynamics Observatory watches the sun 24/7
By viewing the sun in extreme ultraviolet light, the Solar Dynamics Observatory captures the star's invisible explosions. The post Watch the Sun Erupt in a Symphony of Solar Storms appeared first on WIRED.
NASA has released a half hour video of our Sun in breathtaking 4K detail. The video was created from images and data captured by the agency's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) as it continues its mission to observe solar activity andShow More Summary
NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) captures images of the sun in ten different wavelengths (each assigned a different color), and they've shared this 30 minute video of that footage "in unprecedented detail."
NASA has released 30 minutes of gorgeous 4K resolution video of solar activity across 10 wavelengths captured by its Solar Dynamics Observatory. The imagery is set to music by Lars Leonhard from his album Deep Venture.
NASA released 30 minutes of footage of the sun in 4K You thought your Blu-ray player at home was good? NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) released 30 minutes of what's called thermonuclear art (aka mind-blowing footage of the sun). Show More Summary
In a nod to our nation's recreational drug users, NASA has created this 30-minute ultra high-resolution look at our Sun, assembled from thousands of photographs taken by the Solar Dynamics Observatory, which snaps a 16-megapixel image of the Sun every few seconds. Duuuuuuuude... Tags: NASA Sun astronomy space video
NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) in orbit keeps a constant vigil on the Sun to help us understand how solar variations impact life on Earth. Launched in 2010, the SDO is part of NASA's Living With a Star (LWS) Program. NASA just released this magnificent 4K video shot by the SDO of our star's nuclear fire. It's titled "Thermonuclear Art."
Here's a chance to see the sun without damaging your eyes. NASA has released a 30-minute, ultra-high definition 4K video of the sun called "Thermonuclear Art." The footage, which was taken by the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) spacecraft,...Show More Summary
NASA treated us to a post-halloween surprise on Sunday with a new 30-minute video showcasing stunning shots of the sun taken in 4K quality. The sun footage below was taken from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), a spacecraft which launched back in 2010. Show More Summary
NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory catches sight of an extremely long filament of solar material in the form of a long, dark tendril across the sun's surface.
A hole in the sun is the size of 50 Earths and has sparked an “ultrafast” solar wind for several days. New images from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory orbiting system, the massive gaping sun hole is invisible to the human eye. Images of the break in the topmost layer of the sun were taken utilizing... Show More Summary
NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory has photographed a massive coronal hole gaping across the face of the sun. Here's what that means.
NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory released dramatic video this week showing a very active sun sporting an enormous coronal hole along with a mass of solar material lifting off the sun’s surface and swirling about. According to NASA, the coronal hole is larger than 50 Earths and covers...
A rather massive coronal hole was recently spotted on the Sun by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory. The region—the size of 50 Earths—is spewing material into space at tremendous speeds. It may look terrifying, but astronomers say it’s nothing to worry about. Read more...
