View Resource Solar Mystery Nears Solution with Data from SOHO Spacecraft

Recent images taken by instruments aboard the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) show a transfer of magnetic energy from the Sun's surface to the corona. This "magnetic carpet" may solve the 55 year old riddle of why the corona is so much hotter than the surface. The SOI Investigation site is maintained by the Solar Oscillations Investigations group at Lockheed-Martin Solar and Astrophysic...

View Resource Magnetic Carpet Space Science Update Page

Recent images taken by instruments aboard the SOHO spacecraft show a transfer of magnetic energy from the Sun's surface to the Sun's corona. This transfer of energy, referred to as a magnetic carpet, may solve the 55 year old question of why the corona is three million degrees while the surface is a mere 11,000 degrees Fahrenheit. The Magnetic Carpet Space Science Update Page contains the NASA...

View Resource Scientist Finds 2-in-1 Burster: Pulsar Goes Off Twice Each Orbit

The US National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Marshall Space Flight Center recently announced the discovery of GROJ2058+42, an accreting X-ray pulsar with no visible component. The discovery was made by MSFC scientist Colleen Wilson while she was reviewing data obtained from the Burst and Transient Source Experiment (BATSE). The data showed that J2058+42 experiences two gamma ray bursts...
