Latest Ionosphere Stories
Early discoveries by NASA’s newest Mars orbiter are starting to reveal key features about the loss of the planet’s atmosphere to space over time.
NASA has officially confirmed the Ionospheric Connection Explorer, or ICON, mission, clearing it to move forward into the development phase.
Underscoring the vast differences between Earth and its neighbor Venus, new research shows a glimpse of giant holes in the electrically charged layer of the Venusian atmosphere, called the ionosphere.
Atmospheric sprites have been known for nearly a century, but their origins were a mystery. Now, a team of researchers has evidence that sprites form at plasma irregularities and may be useful in remote sensing of the lower ionosphere.
Just as production of the next Star Wars film is starting to ramp up in London – student researchers 100 miles up the road at the University of Leicester revealed a report on the physics behind plasma shields used to protect battling spaceships and the massive Death Star.
Superior Magnetics for Pain Free Living announced it can embed Schumann frequency in magnetic jewelry for pain relief. Pittsburg, Pennsylvania (PRWEB) February
A new study focuses on Venus’ lower atmosphere, which is capped by a dense cloud layer that behaves like the surface of a body of water.
When NASA’s Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution (MAVEN) mission launches on Monday, it will be carrying an instrument designed to scan high above the Martian surface for patterns of electrons that could explain why the Red Planet is losing its atmosphere.
A team of scientists at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland is looking to develop the world’s first spaceborne sodium lidar.
The ionosphere is a region in the upper atmosphere that plays a vital role for global communications. This region is used for the transmission of long wave communications, such as radio waves, and now scientists have found waves from the ionosphere offer valuable news about climate change.
Arecibo Observatory -- The Arecibo Observatory is part of the National Astronomy and Ionosphere Center (NAIC), a national research center operated by Cornell University under a cooperative agreement with the National Science Foundation (NSF). The NSF is an independent federal agency whose aim is to promote scientific and engineering progress in the United States. NSF funds research and education in most fields of science and engineering. Additional support is provided by the National...
