Astronomer Ian Musgrave joins the VCteam & Dr Astro to discuss the remnants of comet Ison & coming eclipses/occultations of Saturn/meteor shower.
This morning The Daily Sheeple reported that the biggest sun spot in recent history had been identified on the sun and that it had moved into position facing earth.
Magnetic field change could interfere with satellites and cause radio blackouts
A solar flare is considered to be one of the most magnificent extraterrestrial phenomena that occur in our solar system, and a photographer, Pepe Manteca, has managed to capture its splendor.
Stop blaming AT&T and Verizon; all those dropped calls you’re experiencing may be coming from the sun.
A powerful solar flare directed at Earth has put on majestic display of the northern lights across parts of Canada, the U.S and Ireland.
"Wars and Rumors of Wars" "How interesting - as we near the 12th anniversary of the day the Twin Towers went up (or I should say down) in smoke, supposedly imploded from the strike of hijacked airliners, the US government is painting yet anothe
Widespread panic due to solar flares and satellite collisions is no longer the stuff of science-fiction now that these risks have the potential to create prolonged business interruption and billions in insured losses.
Dr Musgrave is a molecular pharmacologist/toxicologist who works at the University of Adelaide, Australia. He has a broad interest in the understanding of how surface receptors can modulate neuronal function and survival, as well as interests in natu
With a massive coronal eruption from the sun, NASA warns of an approaching geomagnetic storm. While the effects will probably be mild, some power grid and satellite services could be disrupted.
... Hoeksena said: “It looks like we’re no more than three to four months away from a complete field reversal. This change will have ripple effects throughout the solar system.” NASA officials have discovered that “Earth orbits the sun, dipping i
The sun’s magnetic field is expected to flip in the next three to four months and it could lead to changes in our climate, storms and disruption to satellites.
Magnetic reconnection occurs when magnetic field lines come together, break apart, and then exchange partners, snapping into place with a bolt of energy
Astronomers have detected exotic antimatter particles flying from the sun during solar flares — a discovery that could help scientists understand this mysterious sibling to matter.
A Kolkata-based science centre has warned the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) of a rare ongoing phenomenon near the Earth's atmosphere called solar flares, which can lead to cancer among frequent flyers.
Washington: Researchers at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, have tested the reliability of seven techniques against their record of predicting flares and non-flare events correctly, as well as their history of missed flares and false alarms.
Tools on the ground are helping scientists learn more about the threat solar eruptions on the sun pose to life as we know it on Earth.
The threat of a solar flare wiping out our electric grid is probably something that most people have never even heard of, but the fact is, the threat is very real and has happened in the past.
A little over a year ago, NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory witnessed an eruption from the sun that emitted bursts of hot plasma into space.
NASA always has some cool photos to show off, and this little gem, especially, doesn’t disappoint.
Turbulence to blame for activity that breaks accepted rule of physics
If an extreme solar storm aimed at the Earth hits in just the right way, it could put interconnected electrical grids around the world at serious risk, experts say.
There she goes again!
The sun unleashed a colossal Mother's Day solar flare on Sunday (May 12) in what has become the most powerful solar eruption of the year.
An intense solar storm erupted from the sun on Friday (May 3) in a dazzling space weather display captured by a NASA spacecraft.
Radio communication on Earth was temporarily blacked out today, as the most powerful solar flare of the year erupted from the sun, said officials from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.
Europe launched its first space weather coordination centre Wednesday to raise the alarm for possible satellite-sizzling solar storms that also threaten astronauts in orbit, plane passengers and electricity grids on Earth.
