12.05.11 - NASA's Voyager 1 spacecraft has entered a new region between our solar system and interstellar space. Data obtained from Voyager over the last year reveal this new region to be a kind of cosmic purgatory.
10.06.11 - NASA will begin development and testing of two science instruments, in cooperation with the European Space Agency (ESA), to be placed on ESA's newly selected Solar Orbiter mission.
09.29.11 - NASA has selected 11 science proposals for evaluation as potential future science missions. The proposals outline prospective missions to study the Earth's atmosphere, the sun, the Milky Way galaxy, and Earth-like planets around nearby stars.
09.07.11 - NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, or SDO, has provided scientists new information about solar flares indicating an increase in strength and longevity that is more than previously thought.
09.01.11 - NASA will host a media teleconference at 1 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, Sept. 7, to discuss new observations about solar flares that can impact communication and navigation systems.
08.18.11 - NASA spacecraft observations and new data processing techniques are giving scientists better insight into the evolution and development of solar storms that can damage satellites, disrupt communications and cause power grid failures on Earth.
08.16.11 - NASA will host a news briefing at 2 p.m. EDT, Thursday, Aug. 18, to discuss new details about the structure of solar storms and the impact they have on Earth.
07.19.11 - A NASA led team of scientists and engineers has repositioned two small probes from Earth’s orbit where they studied space weather to begin orbiting the moon to study its interior and surface composition.
06.09.11 - Observations from NASA's Voyager spacecraft, humanity's farthest deep space sentinels, suggest the edge of our solar system may not be smooth, but filled with a turbulent sea of magnetic bubbles.
06.06.11 - NASA will host a media teleconference at 1 p.m. EDT on Thursday, June 9, to discuss a new computer model that shows the edge of our solar system is not smooth, but filled with a turbulent sea of magnetic bubbles.
05.02.11 - NASA has awarded a Cooperative Agreement to the Catholic University of America (CUA) to establish a science center for collaborative research in Solar-Heliospheric Sciences at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md.
03.02.11 - NASA-sponsored research has resulted in the first computer model that explains the recent period of decreased solar activity during the sun's 11-year cycle.
03.01.11 - NASA has rescheduled a media teleconference for 2 p.m. EST on Wednesday, March 2, to discuss the first computer model that explains the recent period of decreased solar activity during the sun's 11-year cycle.
02.28.11 - NASA will host a media teleconference at 1 p.m. EST on Thursday, March 3, to discuss the first computer model that explains the recent period of decreased solar activity during the sun's 11-year cycle.
02.18.11 - NASA will randomly select 100 registrants to participate in the Sun-Earth Day Tweetup March 19 at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. Registration opens at noon EST on Tuesday, Feb. 22, and closes at 5 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 24.
