Latest Spectacular Solar Flare Will Hit STEREO-B Spacecraft, Spitzer And Curiosity
The Sun continues to show its more violent side.
A spectacular solar flare erupted from the Sun's northeastern limb yesterday, sending an beautiful arcing jet of super-heated plasma blasting off into space.
The explosion, captured by Nasa's Solar Dynamics Observatory at about 5.45pm yesterday evening, was one of the most beautiful seen in years.
Something New Spotted On The Sun
One day in the fall of 2011, Neil Sheeley, a solar scientist at the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, D.C., did what he always does –
look through the daily images of the sun from NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO).
But on this day he saw something he'd never noticed before: a pattern of cells with bright centers and dark boundaries occurring in the sun's atmosphere, the corona...
Hidden Misshapen Celestial "Wonder"
It is one of the brightest and strangest objects in the Milky Way - the corpse of a star that exploded around 1000 years ago.
Only a handful of such young supernova remnants are known.
The object named G350.1-0.3 is also incredibly small (only eight light years across) and young in astronomical terms.
Mystery Deepens -
Absence Of Dark Matter In Sun's Neighborhood
The more scientists study dark matter, the lesser they know and they are
not particularly optimistic about their results.
The most accurate study so far of the motions of stars in the Milky Way has found no
evidence for dark matter in a large volume around the Sun.
Ground-Breaking Discovery Suggests
Gravity May Not Be A Fundamental Force Of Nature
Can information really escape from a black hole? According to new research it seems to be possible for something to actually escape from a black hole.
If correct, the results are ground-breaking suggesting that gravity may not be a fundamental force of Nature after all!
Free-Floating' Planets Are Nomad Alien Worlds
That Fly With "Warp Speed" Through The Space
Billions of stars in our galaxy have captured nomad, alien worlds that once roamed interstellar space.
The nomad worlds, which were kicked out of the star systems in which they formed, occasionally find a new home with a different sun...
Mercury Surprises Scientists
On March 17, MESSENGER (MErcury Surface, Space Environment, GEochemistry, and Ranging) completed its one-year primary mission, orbiting Mercury, capturing nearly 100,000 images, and recording data
that reveals new information about the planet's core, topography, and the mysterious radar bright material in the permanently shadowed areas near the poles.
Living Earth Simulator - Supercomputer Predicting The Future
In Douglas Adams book the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy we encounter a machine called Deep Thought. It is the most powerful computer ever built. Deep Thought is capable of answering questions
concerning life, the Universe, and simply everything. Now scientists are planning to create a similar machine. It is called the Living Earth Simulator (LES).
Alien World That Contributes To The Vision Of Hell
There is a strange alien planet orbiting an orange dwarf star in the constellation Monoceros
bordered by the constellations of Canis Minor, Gemini, Hydra, Lepus, Orion and Puppis and located 490 light years away...

Danger From The Sun: Is Earth's High-Tech Safe From The Sun's Fiery Flare-Ups?
The subject of monstrous solar flares and the the CMEs (coronal mass ejections) returns over and over again in news worldwide.
An enormous sunspot unleashed a powerful solar flare late Wednesday (May 16), triggering a radiation
storm intense enough to interfere with some satellites orbiting Earth, according to space weather experts.
However, in terms of power grids and satellites, it’s not the flares that the experts have to worry about, but the CMEs.
