Using data from NASA's THEMIS mission, a team of University of Alberta researchers has pinpointed the impact epicenter of an earthbound space storm as it crashes into the atmosphere.
NASA′s Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory (STEREO) spacecraft has spotted the first major activity of the new solar cycle.
Electrons – the particles that carry electricity – can both protect and disrupt your satellite TV or GPS navigator with a "song".
STEREO spacecraft images and in situ measurements combine to show a complete picture of CMEs that paves the way for predicting solar storms like meteorologists predict hurricanes.
Researchers have developed a new way to measure Earth’s aurora and are learning more about geomagnetic disturbances.
For the first time, NASA spacecraft have traced the 3D shape of solar storms known as coronal mass ejections (CMEs). It turns out the most ferocious storms resemble something from a French bakery.
The sunspot cycle is behaving a little like the stock market. Just when you think it has hit bottom, it goes even lower.
We complain about the occasional 'solar flare' but surveys of other stars prove that we certainly have a lot to be thankful for!
It was once said that we would never know what stars are made of...but 150 years ago, the spectroscope changed this idea over night.
In the 132-page report, experts detailed what might happen to our modern, high-tech society in the event of a "super solar flare" followed by an extreme geomagnetic storm. They found that almost nothing is immune from space weather—not even the water in your bathroom.
