Alex Parker Discovers Moon Over Makemake in the Kuiper Belt

San Antonio TX (SPX) Jul 2016 - A Southwest Research Institute-led team has discovered an elusive, dark moon orbiting Makemake, one of the big four dwarf planets populating the Kuiper Belt region at the edge of our solar system.

The magnetic field provides an invisible barrier that protects Earth from streams of charged particles that are shot outward from the sun's outer layers by its own magnetic field. Now a new study has investigated how the two invisible fields produced by the Earth and the sun interact

space probes catches first glimpse of Earth's 'magnetic explosion'

NASA’s Magnetospheric Multiscale mission (MMS) has successfully made it to spaceaboard an Atlas V rocket. The mission, made up of four identical spacecraft, will spend two years studying the boundary between the magnetic fields of the Earth and the Sun.

Delivering two-and-a-half million pounds of ground-shaking thrust at takeoff, more than any rocket flying from Cape Canaveral these days, the mighty vehicle was rolled from its assembly building to the launch pad Monday for Wednesday’s early morning blastoff. The United Launch Alliance Atlas 5 rocket, equipped with five strap-on solid-propellant boosters for added performance, will launch the Navy’s MUOS 4 mobile communications satellite at 5:59 a.m. EDT (0959 GMT). - spaceflightnow.com
