Latest Coronal mass ejection Stories
NASA's STEREO spacecraft has observed the fastest coronal mass ejection (CME) ever seen on the Sun.
Scientists are warning that power grids, communications and satellites could be knocked out by a massive solar storm within the next two years.

The Sun and the dynamic space weather system that envelops the Earth are what researchers are trying to get a better understanding of with the help of Heliophysics nuggets.
A solar storm, scheduled to arrive Saturday morning and last through the end of the day on Sunday, is expected to put on a show for sky-gazers but should otherwise have little to no effect, according to scientists.
The sun is a ferocious, hot mess, and this week it showed off through a coronal mass ejection just how messy it can get. An active region on the sun fired off two M-class flares and two coronal mass ejections (CMEs) this week.
Engineers and scientists at the Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] Space Systems Advanced Technology Center (ATC) have completed delivery of key hardware subsystems for NASA’s Magnetosphereic Multiscale mission (MMS).
