These maps of the near and far side of the moon show gravity gradients as measured by NASA's GRAIL mission. Red and blue areas indicate stronger gradients due to underlying mass anomalies.

Mehr als 700.000 Kilometern und damit länger als der Radius der Sonne ist der gewaltige Strom aus heißem, extrem dichtem Gas, der vor zwei  Tagen auf dem Monitor des Solar Dynamics Laboratory der Nasa aufgetaucht war. Der Matriestrom wird vom starken Magnetfeld der Sonne  für Stunden, Tage und manchmal für Monate in Form gehalten. Solche riesigen Protuberanzen ragen oft Tausende, gelegentlich auch Millionen Kilometer als riesigen Bogenstrukturen in die Höhe. Auf dem aktuellen Sonnenbild des…

A dark, snaking line across the lower half of the sun in this Feb. 2015 image from NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) shows a filament of solar material hovering above the sun's surface.

Mercury’s Caloris Basin in enhanced colors, showing different materials on the surface. The Caloris Basin is a huge impact site at the equator that created a wave that made it a mountain ridge 180 degrees on the other side.

An elongated, streaming arch of darker, cooler plasma rose up at the edge of the Sun before it broke apart, sending some particles into space (Apr. 28, 2016), while some of the material fell back into the Sun. The particles were streaming along curved magnetic field lines connecting areas of north and south polarity.

SDO is designed to help us understand the Sun's influence on Earth and Near-Earth space by studying the solar atmosphere on small scales of space and time and in many wavelengths simultaneously.

Over the last couple of weeks, the Dawn Spacecraft has been beaming back spectacular pictures of Ceres – a world, discovered more than a century before Pluto, about which we know very little. This is the story of its discovery, and humanity's impending visit to one of the last unexplored planetary bodies in the solar system.

Dawn Approaches: Two Faces of Ceres These two views of Ceres were acquired by NASA's Dawn spacecraft on Feb. from a distance of about miles kilometers) as the dwarf planet rotated. The images have been magnified from their original size.

from NASA's Cassini mission shows the turbulent power of a monster Saturn storm. The visible-light image in the back, obtained on Feb. 25, 2011, by Cassini's imaging camera, shows the turbulent clouds churning across the face of Saturn. The inset infrared image, obtained a day earlier, by Cassini's visual and infrared mapping spectrometer, shows the dredging up of water and ammonia ices from deep in Saturn's atmosphere.

Did life on Earth originate on Mars? In order to investigate this possibility, a team of researchers want NASA’s next Mars rover to probe the Red Planet’s surface for genetic material by analyzing soil and ice samples with a DNA-sequencing microchip

A Minotaur V rocket carrying NASA's Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE) lifts off from at NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia on Friday, Sept. 6, 2013.  LADEE is a robotic mission designed to orbit the moon where and provide unprecedented information about the environment around the moon and give scientists a better understanding of other planetary bodies in our solar system and beyond.
