NASA said on Monday that scientists have discovered lightning-made waves in Earth's atmosphere that leaked into space.
Lunar researchers have been struggling with the mystery for years, and they may have finally found a solution. But first, what is an ionosphere?
Space around Earth is anything but a barren vacuum. The area seethes with electric and magnetic fields that change constantly. Charged particles flow through, moving energy around, creating electric currents, and producing the aurora.
A Naval Research Laboratory instrument designed to study the Earth's thermosphere is part of a future science mission that has been selected by NASA for evaluation for flight.
ESA’s Swarm satellites, which will unravel the complexities of Earth’s magnetic shield, are being put through their paces to ensure that they will withstand the rigors of space.
Researchers at the University of Illinois have become the first to record an airglow signature in the upper atmosphere produced by a tsunami using a camera system based in Maui, Hawaii.
Radio broadcasters compete for airwave space in the saturated FM range, in detriment to AM wavebands with a poorer sound quality.

The Van Allen radiation belts are a hazardous environment, full of 'killer' electrons that can be lethal to orbiting satellites.
Scientists use innovative Radio Aurora Explorer satellite to discover conditions that cause disruptions in space-based communication and navigation signals.
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...
