The Earth’s magnetic field makes life possible by shielding us from solar wind. It is also the key to life on an exoplanet.
A monster prominence, a sheath of thin gas held above the surface by the Sun’s magnetic field, pictured with a small telescope.
Eventually, Earth’s magnetic fields will flip. What will happen when Earth’s Magnetic Poles reverse?
Take a look in the video at the best simulation of the sun’s magnetic field ever captured…
Ferrofluid is a liquid that displays unusual properties in the presence of a magnetic field. Watch in the video, what happens when we mix ferrofluid
A huge dark area across the top of the sun, a coronal hole, a region where the magnetic field is open to interplanetary space, sending
Our sun is constantly changing, the activity cycle peaks approximately every 11 years. New research shows evidence of a shorter time cycle as well, with
The impressive shape of our Galaxy’s (Milky Way) magnetic field and its temperature, captured by the Planck spacecraft.
Scientists have discovered an invisible shield roughly 7,200 miles (11,600 km) above Earth, that blocks Sun’s high-energy radiation. Illustration by Andy Kale, University of Alberta.
Researchers at NASA and its university partners are using supercomputer to simulate Sun’s magnetic field loops, to learn how they emerge, heat the sun’s outer
