New findings could help keep satellites and space debris from colliding
Half a million objects, including debris, satellites, and the International Space Station, orbit the planet in the thermosphere, the largest layer of Earth's atmosphere. View News Article (2014-11-14)

Sun Spits Out A Coronal Mass Ejection
At 11:24 p.m. EDT on Oct. 4, 2012, the sun unleashed a coronal mass ejection (CME). View News Article (2012-10-08)

NASA Unveils New Space-Weather Science Tool
When NASA's satellite operators need accurate, real-time space-weather information, they turn to the Community Coordinated Modeling Center (CCMC) of the Space Weather Laboratory at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. The CCMC's newest and most advanced space-weather science tool is the Integrated Space Weather Analysis (iSWA) system.  View News Article (2010-02-24)

Continuing Thanksgiving Eruptions On the Sun
On Nov. 23, 2012, at 8:54 a.m. EST, the sun erupted with an Earth-directed coronal mass ejection or CME. Experimental NASA research models, based on observations from the Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory (STEREO) and the ESA/NASA mission the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory, show that the Nov. 23 CME left the sun at speeds of 375 miles per second, which is a slow to average speed for...

Sun Spits Out Two CMEs
The sun recently erupted with two coronal mass ejections (CMEs). One began at 8:36 p.m. EDT on March 12, 2013 and is directed toward three NASA spacecraft, Spitzer, Kepler and Epoxi. View News Article (2013-03-14)

Activity Continues On the Sun
Solar activity continued on May 14, 2013, as the sun emitted a fourth X-class flare from its upper left limb, peaking at 9:48 p.m. EDT. This flare is classified as an X1.2 flare and it is the 18th X-class flare of the current solar cycle. The flare caused a radio blackout - categorized as an R3, or strong, on NOAA's space weather scales from R1 to R5 -- which has since subsided. View News Article (2013-05-16)

New research contributes to defense of Earth's technologies
University of Leicester researchers have taken a step forward in helping to create a defence for earth's technologies -from the constant threat of space weather. View News Article (2009-06-03)

Sun Unleashes First X-class Flare of 2014
The sun emitted a significant solar flare peaking at 1:32 p.m. EST on Jan.7, 2014. View News Article (2014-01-08)

Sun Erupts with a CME Toward Earth and Mercury
On July 9, 2013, at 11:09 a.m. EDT, the sun erupted with an Earth-directed 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. View News Article (2013-07-11)

First Large-Scale, Physics-Based Space Weather Model Transitions Into Operation
The first large-scale, physics-based space weather prediction model is transitioning from research into operation. View News Article (2011-01-28)
