NASA is currently finding answers as to why healthy whales and other sea creatures end up stranding themselves to death.
A powerful solar storm hitting the Earth's magnetic sphere brightens up the night sky, producing stunning auroras that reached as far south as continental United States.
Solar storms, which are hard to predict, can cause signal disruption and massive power outage
Scientists at Oxford University said that “time markers” in trees that grew during intense radiation bursts could help date events across the ancient world.
On March 17, 2015, a shockwave caused by the driving force of a coronal mass ejection from the Sun struck the Earth’s magnetic field and triggered a geomagnetic storm. NASA’s Van Allen Probes have fortunately captured the effects of the storm on the radiation belts.
Earlier this week, the NOAA's Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) satellite reached its orbital position, not circling the Earth or Mars but instead orbiting the Sun itself, at a stunning 1 million miles from Earth.
We may be due for the consequences of an intense solar storm passing over the Earth tomorrow after what NASA is calling a "significant" solar flare burst from the Sun yesterday afternoon.
Back in Jan. 2005, a massive storm of solar space-weather engulfed the Earth, providing a relatively rare opportunity for scientists to study these storms in the hopes of one day being able to accurately predict their arrival and potential effects on human technology.
