~~Coronal Loops Reveal Magnetic Dance | Magnetic Dance: Solar material traces out giant magnetic fields soaring through the sun to create what's called coronal loops | NASA Goddard Photo and Video~~


Mars; the centre of the scene shows the entire Valles Marineris canyon system. Image credit: NASA Goddard Space Flight Centre. - Data from two instruments aboard NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter have led to the discovery of a rare acid-sulphate mineral deposit on Mars, providing the first mineralogical evidence that the planet once had glaciers.


Magnificent CME Erupts on the Sun - August 31 On August 31, 2012 a long filament of solar material that had been hovering in the sun's atmosphere, the corona, erupted out into space at 4:36 p.m. EDT. The coronal mass ejection, or CME, traveled at over 900 miles per second. The CME did not travel directly toward Earth, but did connect with Earth's magnetic environment, or magnetosphere, causing aurora to appear on the night of Monday, September 3.


A Strange Thing Happened in Earth's Stratosphere | NASA Goddard | Sept. 2, 2016: High above Earth’s tropics, a pattern of winds changed recently in a way that scientists had never seen in more than 60 years of consistent measurements. This disruption to the wind pattern—called the “quasi-biennial oscillation"—did not have any immediate impact on weather or climate as we experience it on Earth’s surface. But it does raise interesting questions! If a pattern holds for six decades & hen…
