Science Fiction Stories with Good Astronomy & Physics
A selective list of short stories and novels that use more or less accurate science and can be used for teaching or reinforcing astronomy or physics concepts.
First Sightings of Solar Flare Phenomena Confirm 3-D Models of Space Weather
Scientists have for the first time witnessed the mechanism behind explosive energy releases in the Sun’s atmosphere, confirming new theories about how solar flares are created.
A Question of Atmospheres: On Earth and Beyond
Scientists have solved an enigma about naturally occurring aerosol particles in Earth’s atmosphere. What might the discovery mean in the search for biosignatures on other worlds?
A New Structure in Earth's Radiation Belt
Physicists have discovered a structure in Earth's inner radiation belt that could pose a threat to future human explorers and communication satellites.
Solar Activity Influences Climate Change
Changes in the sun’s energy output may have led to marked natural climate change in Europe over the last 1000 years.
A River of Plasma, Guarding Against the Sun
MIT scientists identify a plasma plume that naturally protects the Earth against solar storms.
JUNO Gives a Starship's View of Earth
NASA's Juno spacecraft flew by Earth in October, building up speed for its journey to Jupiter. The spacecraft also captured an interesting picture of the Earth-Moon system.
Solar Activity Plays a Minimal Role in Global Warming
Changes in solar activity have contributed no more than 10 per cent to global warming in the twentieth century, a new study has found.
Cosmic Rays Zap a Planet's Chances for Life
Mysterious cosmic rays constantly bombard Earth from outer space. Now scientists find these energetic particles could limit where life as we know it might exist on alien planets.
Relativistic Electrons and Earth's Radiation Belts
Scientists have uncovered new information about the nature of the radiation belts that surround the Earth.
