redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online NASA is planning to launch a new, highly-sophisticated space-based ozone sensor to help monitor the layer of atmosphere that helps protect the planet from some of the sun´s harshest UV rays, the US space agency announced on Friday. Dubbed the Stratospheric Aerosol and Gas Experiment III (SAGE III), the sensor is currently scheduled to be installed on the International Space Station (ISS) sometime in 2014. According to NASA,...

NASA -- Solar storms, such as the unusually intense events in October and November 2003, affect many aspects of our lives, such as radio signals and satellite communications. Now a new study partially funded by NASA and using data from several NASA instruments has shown that those late 2003 solar storms, which deposited huge quantities of energetic solar particles into Earth's atmosphere, combined forces with another natural atmospheric process last spring to produce the largest decline ever...
