Sun Produces Fourth X-class Flare In A Week
2013-10-30 11:04:01

NASA The sun emitted a significant solar flare – its fourth X-class flare since Oct. 23, 2013 -- peaking at 5:54 p.m. on Oct. 29, 2013. Solar flares are powerful bursts of radiation. Harmful radiation from a flare cannot pass through Earth's atmosphere to physically affect humans on the ground, however -- when intense enough -- they can disturb the atmosphere in the layer where GPS and communications signals travel. This disrupts the radio signals for as long as the flare is ongoing,...

LED Light Technology Proving Useful In Speedy Data Transmission
2013-10-29 08:26:43

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online British researchers reported on Monday that they had achieved data transmission speeds of 10 gigabits per second (Gbps) via "Li-Fi,” an emerging technology that allows wireless Internet connectivity using light. The researchers used a micro-LED light bulb to transmit 3.5 Gbps via each of the three primary colors – red, green, blue – that comprise white light, demonstrating that data rates of more than 10 Gbps are possible....

Sun Continues To Produce Solar Flares
2013-10-28 11:08:45

NASA After emitting its first significant solar flares since June 2013 earlier in the week, the sun continued to produce mid-level and significant solar flares on Oct. 27 and Oct. 28, 2013. Solar flares are powerful bursts of radiation. Harmful radiation from a flare cannot pass through Earth's atmosphere to physically affect humans on the ground, however -- when intense enough -- they can disturb the atmosphere in the layer where GPS and communications signals travel.

[ Watch the Video: Our Sun Is Flaring Up ] Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Our sun, the bright yellow disk that sits at the center of the Solar System providing us with light, energy and warmth, has a much darker side that also has the potential to disrupt, rather than preserve, life on Earth. Experts know that the sun goes through a natural solar cycle about every 11 years, marked by an increase and decrease of sunspots – visible blemishes that appear on...

Third Solar Flare Emitted By The Sun In Two Days
2013-10-25 12:12:19

NASA [ Watch The Video: Experimental NASA Research Model of Path for Oct. 22-23 CMEs ] The M9.4 flare on Oct. 23, 2013, was associated with a coronal mass ejection or CME, a solar phenomenon that can send billions of tons of particles into space that can reach Earth one to three days later. These particles cannot travel through the atmosphere to harm humans on Earth, but they can affect electronic systems in satellites and on the ground. Another solar flare erupted from the same area...

The prominent feature that allows for the existence of life on Earth is the Sun. Radiation from our closest star provides heat and energy to our planet, driving biological processes and providing the necessary conditions for liquid water to naturally exist. But our Sun is only but one star in this vast Universe. And as it turns out, most stars are quite different than the one that illuminates our day. For this reason, scientists have, for hundreds of years, attempted to study the other...

The Sun -- intensely hot, self-luminous body of gases at the center of the solar system. Its gravitational attraction maintains the planets, comets, and other bodies of the solar system in their orbits. The sun is actually a star of about medium size; it appears larger than the other stars because of its relative nearness to the earth. The earth's distance from the sun varies from 91,377,000 mi (147,053,000 km) at perihelion to 94,537,000 mi (152,138,000 km) at aphelion (see apsis). The...

Crab Nebula -- The Crab Nebula (Messier 1, NGC 1952) is the object the which started Charles Messier logging non-cometary objects on his Messier Catalog. It is the expanding cloud of gas thrown off in the explosion that gave rise to the 1054 supernova recorded by Chinese astronomers, now more than 6 light years across (the nebula is currently expanding at 1000 km/sec and the total mass of ejected material is about 0.1 solar masses). The supernova which produced it was bright enough to...
