NASA Launches Mission to Radiation Belts
NASA's Radiation Belt Storm Probes mission has launched from Cape Canaveral. The twin-spacecraft mission will study the radiation belts, providing important information about the connections between the Sun and the Earth.
New Mission Ready to Brave Earth's Radiation Belts
NASA’s Radiation Belt Storm Probes (RBSP) mission will send two spacecraft into the harsh environment of our planet’s radiation belts.
The Electric Atmosphere
Scientists have designed a new suite of instruments that will help us better understand how Earth's protective atmosphere helps protect life as we know it from electrified particles that dominate the Universe.
Warning System for Solar Storms
Massive explosions on the Sun can unleash radiation that is dangerous for humans and robotic missions in orbit. Now, researchers have developed a warning system that can forecast the radiation from these storms up to three hours in advance.
Hidden Portals in Earth's Magnetic Field
Researchers have discovered a method for finding 'portals' that lead directly from the Earth to the atmosphere of the Sun 93 million miles away.
New Study Proves the Magnetosphere Protects Earth
A chance alignment of planets has allowed scientists to compare the protective effects of Earth's magnetic field with that of Mars' naked atmosphere.
Computer Simulations of Earth's Turbulent Magnetosphere
Scientists are now using one of the most powerful supercomputers in the world to better understand the processes that give rise to space weather.
Cold Plasma Above Earth
Scientists have developed a new method to measure cold plasma above the Earth, and have revealed more cold, charged ions in Earth’s upper altitudes than previously imagined.
Earth’s Cloudy Past Could Reveal Exoplanet Details
The pattern of clouds on Earth is largely determined by the arrangement of the continents below. Now, astronomers are modeling the clouds at different periods in Earth’s past to better understand what alien worlds might look like.
Earth's Lightning Waves Leak into Space
A NASA mission has provided the first view of Earth's 'atmospheric heartbeat' from space.
