Most people know that too much sunlight can cause skin cancer, but did you know it may also cause problems in fertility? Scientists have found that increased UV radiation can have an effect on human fertility over generations.
After working with temperatures as hot as the interior of the sun, researchers have managed to find out iron's role in inhibiting energy transmission from the sun to the near edge of its radiative band.
Don't just expect to see holiday lights here on Earth. The sun is also getting in on the action this year. Scientists spotted a significant solar flare that peaked at 7:28 EST on Dec. 19.
NASA's Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR) has captured a stunning, new image of our sun.
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.
The sun may actually be influencing lightning strikes on Earth. How? The sun is temporarily "bending" Earth's magnetic field and allowing a shower of energetic particles to enter the upper atmosphere.
Want to lose some weight? You may want to get a little extra sunshine in your life. Scientists have found that exposure to moderate amounts of sunshine may slow the development of obesity and diabetes.
Sky gazers are in luck today. A partial solar eclipse will occur across North America this Thursday during the evening hours, so make sure to catch a glimpse--as long as the weather cooperates.
NASA has learned a little bit more about our sun's atmosphere with the help of the Interface Region Imaging Spectrograph (IRIS).
Here on Earth, people are gearing up for Halloween by carving pumpkins into jack-o-lanterns and preparing their costumes. Now, it looks like the sun has also decided to show off just in time for the scariest night of the year.
Earth is known for its abundance of water. But where did that water come from in the first place and how did it get to our planet? Scientists have now discovered that much of our solar system's water probably originated as ice that first formed in interstellar space.
