After the Rosetta mission is over, The European Space Agency is looking at launching new missions, including two smaller comet proposals and probes to Mars, Mercury, Jupiter and the sun.
Solar storms, which are hard to predict, can cause signal disruption and massive power outage
When the sun was dimmer, the Earth did not freeze up, and scientists had earlier believed it was because of methane. Now, a new study shatters this long-held assumption.
New observations from NASA's Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory (STEREO) reveal how solar winds evolved.
USGS to develop a natio-wide map of induction hazards to quantify the effects of geomagnetic storms to electrical power grids.
A new study suggests that ground squirrels use the sun as a navigational guide to search for its food stash.
With the recent discovery of Proxima b, an Earth-like planet orbiting the star Proxima Centauri, people have begun speculating what life on the planet would be like. A scientist from MIT shares her thoughts about human existence on Proxima b.
NASA is studying a peculiar star that appears to be both an old and a young star.
A new ESA satellite will be launching in 2019 to study the sun’s corona by creating its own small-scale solar eclipse.
A long-standing theory about the “stone circles” in Scotland has been confirmed by scientists: the ancient rocks were used to track astronomical events.
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.
Aside from sunlight, other light sources outside the Milky Way galaxy also reaches the Earth.
A new study revealed that a powerful solar flare during the height of the cold war almost caused the United States to start a nuclear war on 1967.
Plant biologists have discovered sunflowers to follow the sun from east to west during the day, using their growth hormones.
