lcbatesmuseum It is hard to take pictures inside an inflatable #planetarium! One of our educators was at a NASA workshop on #Heliophysics this last week and spent time in this awesome planetarium. We will have more programs about the #Sun coming soon! #lcbatesmuseum #astronomy 2w

  •   todfen It's a talk on Heliophysics. It's part of the NASA Social event. We're learning about the MMS mission where NASA will send up 4 identical spacecraft to fly on a tetrahedron formation to take precise measurements of magnetic reconnection. It's a phenomenon that happens on earth, on the sun and even in black holes. We just can't study it on the sun, "because it's a little hot" NASA's words in quotations. Lol 5mon

americanpublicu #SpaceStudies: The Magnetospheric Multiscale (MMS) mission is a Solar Terrestrial Probes mission comprising four identically instrumented spacecraft that will use Earth’s magnetosphere as a laboratory to study the microphysics of three fundamental plasma processes: magnetic reconnection, energetic particle acceleration, and turbulence. These processes occur in all astrophysical plasma systems but can be studied in situ only in our solar system and most efficiently only in Earth’s magnetosphere, where they control the dynamics of the geospace environment and play an important role in the processes known as “space weather.” 5mon

rachela_adler The Heliophysics Science Division conducts research on the Sun, its extended solar-system environment (the heliosphere), and interactions of Earth, other planets, small bodies, and interstellar gas with the heliosphere. Division research also encompasses geospace -- Earth's uppermost atmosphere, the ionosphere, and the magnetosphere -- and the changing environmental conditions throughout the coupled heliosphere (solar system weather). 5mon

A dark snaking line in the upper right of this image on Sept. 30, 2014, show a filament of solar material hovering above the sun's surface. If straightened out, the filament would reach almost across the whole sun, about 1 million miles or 100 times the size of Earth.
Solar Dynamics Observatory, or SDO, which watches the sun 24 hours a day, has observed this gigantic filament for several days as it rotated around with the sun. If straightened out, the filament would reach almost across the whole sun, about 1 million miles or 100 times the size of Earth. SDO captured the image in extreme UV light of 193 Angstrom and 335 Angstrom – different colors represent different wavelengths of light and different temperatures of solar material.
