WASHINGTON, June 27, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Data from Voyager 1, now more than 11 billion miles from the sun, suggest the spacecraft is closer to becoming the first human-made object to reach interstellar space. (Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20081007/38461LOGO) Research using Voyager 1 data and published in the journal Science Thursday provides new detail on the last region the spacecraft will cross before it leaves the heliosphere, or the bubble around our sun,...

Voyager 1 Still Within The Confines Of Solar System
2013-06-27 15:36:08

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Scientists are split on exactly where NASA's Voyager 1 spacecraft is sitting within the Solar System, but new research from the space agency suggests it is on the last frontier out. A team of scientists wrote in Geophysical Research Letters in March that the spacecraft had already left our Solar System. However, the latest intel from NASA shows that the spacecraft is still sitting just within the edge of our "Solar Bubble."...

Cassini Spacecraft To Take Picture Of Earth From Nearly 900 Million Miles Away

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online The jointly operated NASA/ESA/ASI Cassini-Huygens orbiter exploring Saturn is set to take a spectacular image of Earth on the afternoon of July 19 during a solar eclipse of the sixth planet. Earth will actually appear as a small, pale blue dot between the rings of Saturn during the mosaic imaging event. NASA has invited the public to help acknowledge the interplanetary portrait by waving up to the skies when the image is taken....

NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory A gauge on the Voyager home page tracks levels of two of the three key signs scientists believe will appear when the spacecraft leave our solar neighborhood and enter interstellar space. When the three signs are verified, scientists will know that one of the Voyagers has hurtled beyond the magnetic bubble the sun blows around itself, which is known as the heliosphere. The gauge indicates the level of fast-moving charged particles, mainly protons,...

How Charged Water Particles Affect Saturn's Atmosphere
2013-04-10 19:36:15

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online A new study published in the journal Nature found that the "rain" of charged water particles in Saturn's atmosphere influences the composition and temperature of the planet's upper atmosphere and rings. The study, led by the University of Leicester in England, reveals that there is a significant interaction between its atmosphere and ring system. "The main effect of ring rain is that it acts to 'quench' the ionosphere of...

[ Watch the Video: Pioneer 11 Animation and Archive Footage ] Michael Harper for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online NASA is celebrating the 40th birthday of the Pioneer 11 spacecraft. For the past four decades, Pioneer has been hurtling through space, capturing satellite images of the planets Jupiter and Saturn. As its predecessor, Pioneer 10 had launched just over a year before and was the first spacecraft to not only leave the inner Solar System, but make the trip to Jupiter as...

Voyager 1 Continues Its Journey

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online NASA´s Voyager 1 spacecraft may have allegedly left the confines of our solar System after 35 years and more than 11 billion miles of traveling through space. Scientists writing in the Geophysical Research Letters claim that they measured drastic changes in radiation levels on August 25, 2012 while the spacecraft was sitting over 11 billion miles away from the Sun. The anomalous cosmic rays (those trapped in the outer heliosphere)...

WASHINGTON, Dec. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- NASA's Voyager 1 spacecraft has entered a new region at the far reaches of our solar system that scientists feel is the final area the spacecraft has to cross before reaching interstellar space. (Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20081007/38461LOGO) Scientists refer to this new region as a magnetic highway for charged particles because our sun's magnetic field lines are connected to interstellar magnetic field lines. This connection...

Voyager 1 Enters New Region Of Deep Space
2012-12-03 14:41:16

[ Watch the Video ] Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online NASA announced at the American Geophysical Union meeting in San Francisco on Monday that its Voyager 1 spacecraft has reached a region of space no other spacecraft has reached before. After 35 years, the Voyager 1 spacecraft has reached a new region of deep space known as a magnetic highway for charged particles. In this region, our sun's magnetic field lines are connected to interstellar magnetic field lines....

Saturn's moon Pan -- Pan, the innermost known satellite, was found from photographs taken by Voyager during its encounter with Saturn. It was discovered by Mark R. Showalter in 1990, 9 years after the Voyager encounter. Pan is located 133,583 kilometers from the center of Saturn and is within the Encke Gap of Saturn's A-ring. It acts as a shepherd and is responsible for keeping the Encke gap open. It has a diameter of 20 kilometers. ----- Discovered by: Mark R. Showalter;...
