NASA protects its super heroes from space weather  

Houston TX (SPX) Aug 21, 2017 It's not a bird or a plane but it might be a solar storm. We like to think of astronauts as our super heroes, but the reality is astronauts are not built like Superman who gains strength from the sun. In fact, much of the energy radiating from the sun is harmful to us mere mortals. Outside Earth's protective magnetic field and atmosphere, the ionizing radiation in space will pose a serious

Oak Ridge TN (SPX) Aug 14, 2017 When astronomers peer into the universe, what they see often exceeds the limits of human understanding. Such is the case with low-mass galaxies - galaxies a fraction of the size of our own Milky Way. These small, faint systems made up of millions or billions of stars, dust, and gas constitute the most common type of galaxy observed in the universe. But according to astrophysicists' most ad

Gigantic Bubbles at Center of Milky Way Reaching Out 50,000 Light Years Discovered to be Source of Mysterious Cosmic Rays  

    A team of scientists from Russia and China has developed a model which explains the nature of high-energy cosmic rays (CRs) in our Galaxy. These CRs have energies exceeding those produced by supernova explosions by one or two orders of magnitude. The model focuses mainly on the recent discovery of giant structures called Fermi bubbles. Hints of the Fermi bubbles' edges shown above were first observed in X-rays (blue) by ROSAT, which operated in the 1990s. The gamma rays mapp
