Mars has a TAIL: NASA mission discovers ‘twisted magnetotail’ unlike any other in the solar system

0F211FDA-A2C0-477D-8A4E-4297BA80D6FE.jpegAn invisible magnetic ‘tail’ shaped unlike any other in the solar system is trailing behind Mars, NASA has discovered. While other planets, such as Venus and Earth, are known to have so-called magnetotails, the feature observed at Mars is twisted far more dramatically than expected…….Read More

 

 

Hole Lot of Lunacy: Moon Colonists Could Live in Underground Lava Tubes

CEB77214-CF95-432B-856E-347AEB0527C2.jpegA number of intact lava tubes were discovered in the Marius Hills area of the moon by researchers from the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) and Purdue University in Indiana. Using radar data from JAXA’s SELENE lunar orbiter and gravitational data from NASA’s GRAIL lunar probes, the team was able to discover the tubes. The cave in question is estimated to be 31 miles long and 330 feet wide, which would make it the second biggest lava tube on Earth. If it were located on Earth, that is……Read More

Earth-sized vortex on Neptune takes scientists by storm (PHOTOS)

59848060dda4c8316e8b4567Stunning images of a raging storm almost as large as Earth have baffled astronomers studying the solar system’s farthest-flung planet, Neptune. Though storms have been observed on the large blue planet before, the location and size of this particular phenomenon has puzzled space boffins since the massive bright clouds were first observed at the end on June. The huge storm, roughly 9,000 km (5,592 miles) in length, is ripping through an area of the planet where no bright clouds have been seen before. For context, if a similar storm happened here on Earth, it would cover three-quarters of our planet…….Read More

Astronomers warning: Fragments of Asteroids could Wipe Out Entire Countries

The startling finding means that experts may not be able to spot the massive space rock hidden in the annual Taurids meteor shower until it is too late. According to a group of researchers, one of the fragments could hit Earth in 2022, 2025, 2032 or 2039 during the annual meteor shower. The Taurids is a spectacular meteor shower that lights up the night skies every November. The meteor shower is the trail of debris left by the comet Encke. But the debris could be obscuring two asteroid chunks known as 2015 TX24 and 2005 UR that are potentially Earth-bound……..Read More

Are We Prepared for a Catastrophic Solar Storm?

IMG_0337One of the biggest disasters we face would begin about 18 hours after the sun spit out a 10-billion-ton ball of plasma–something it has done before and is sure to do again. When the ball, a charged cloud of particles called a coronal mass ejection (CME), struck the Earth, electrical currents would spike through the power grid. Transformers would be destroyed. Lights would go out. Food would spoil and–since the entire transportation system would also be shut down–go unrestocked……Read More

From artificial auroras to radiation belts around Earth: Cold War-era nuclear tests spurred dramatic space weather events

Between 1958 and 1962, the United States and USSR conducted high-altitude nuclear explosion tests, detonating weapons as high as 250 miles above the surface. A new study has found that these tests triggered changes in Earth’s magnetic environment similar to those resulting from naturally-occurring space weather, when the sun sends high-energy particles streaming toward the magnetosphere. The researchers found that these Cold War-era tests gave rise to temporary radiation belts around Earth and even created artificial auroras that could be seen over the equator, instead of the poles……Read More
