In a study, researchers identified a red dwarf star that is quite stormy, where it is releasing emissions that are 10,000 times greater than what the Sun produces.
NASA may have discovered what happened to Mars' atmosphere. The Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution (MAVEN) mission has found that solar wind stripped the planet's atmosphere clean.
It turns out that massive solar storms once battered Earth about 1,000 years ago.
Scientists have presented findings from six years of direct observations made by NASA's interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX) mission of the interstellar wind that blows through our solar system.
A massive coronal hole in our sun has been captured by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory. Now, this hole is causing some auroral displays on Earth.
Wind can be a powerful, shaping force. Now, scientists have taken a closer look at how wind sculpted one of Earth's most spectacular features: China's Loess Plateau.
Scientists have solved a long-standing mystery in space. They've uncovered the origin of the "theta aurora," an aurora that occurs at startlingly high latitudes on Earth.
Astronomers may have found out a bit more about solar wind, answering questions as to how it might break through the Earth's magnetic field.
The twin deep-space exploring spacecraft Voyager 1 and 2 continue their travel where nothing from Earth has flown before, and are now on the verge of leaving our Solar System for interstellar space! This data can now be followed live online on the Voyager home page, where a gauge tracks levels of tw...
A mysterious phenomenon was discovered at the outer most border of our solar system when a special instrument was launched which could observe this region for the first time. This border is defined as the heliosphere, where material streaming out from the sun interacts with the galactic material. It...
While it was New Year's Eve on Earth, the NASA Solar Dynamics Observatory captured this solar eruption, a truly gigantic and magnificent kind of firework. The flare shot about 260,000 kilometers out from the Sun. While it was a rather small eruption, it corresponds to 20 times the size of Earth with...
