  1. NASA Gets a Quick Peek at a Mysterious Layer of the Sun A new map of the chromosphere’s magnetic field could help us predict solar weather patterns—and anticipate flares that wreak havoc on the power grid. Photograph: Lin Yen Ting/Getty Images Imagine for a minute that you have been transported to the middle layers of the sun’s atmosphere. The sun’s surface, the “visible disc” scientists call the photosphere, boils below you, red-hot plasma heated to 10,000 degrees

    The sun welcomes new year

    The sun ushered out 2013 and welcomed 2014 with two mid-level flares on Dec. 31, 2013 and Jan. 1, 2014. Solar flares are powerful bursts of radiation. Harmful radiation from a flare cannot pass through Earth’s atmosphere to physically affect humans on the ground, however — when intense enough — they can disturb the atmosphere in the layer where GPS and communications signals travel. This disrupts the radio signals for as long as the flare is ongoing, anywhere from minutes to hours. To see how this event may impact Earth, please visit NOAA’s Space Weather Prediction Center, the U.S. government’
  3. Paper that claimed the Sun caused global warming gets retracted It turns out the Earth is also subject to gravity, which was a problem. Enlarge NASA 156 with 95 posters participating, including story author A paper published last June was catnip for those who are desperate to explain climate change with anything but human-caused greenhouse gas emissions. It was also apparently wrong enough to be retracted this week by the journal that published it, even though its authors objected. The pap
  4. At the end of its life, our Sun could end up as a crystal—and physicists now have observational evidence to back up that theory. Scientists have predicted that as white dwarfs cool, they can crystallize in a phase transition somewhat like water freezing into ice. New research from scientists in the UK, U.S., and Canada provides evidence of this transition in a survey of nearby white dwarfs. This is especially interesting to us because, as we’ve reported, scientists predict that our own Sun’s fate is to become a white dwarf. White dwarfs are small, faint, and
  5. New Discovery The galactic nuclei known as quasars are unfathomably bright celestial objects powered by supermassive black holes.. Now, astronomers using some of the most advanced terrestrial and space telescopes in existence think they’ve discovered the brightest quasar ever observed in the early universe — one that shines with the power of 600 trillion Suns. “We don’t expect to find many quasars brighter than that in the whole observable universe,” lead investigator Xiaohui Fan, a professor of astronomy at the University of Arizona, said in a news
  6. We are entering the Golden Age of studying our Sun "There is no doubt that the observations and insight will be unprecedented." First image of article image gallery. Please visit the source link to see all 9+ images. The Sun is our closest star, and without it life on our world could not survive. So it is essential to understand its nature. And yet, even though the Sun shines brightly on every clear day on Earth, it is difficult for astronomers to observe the star closely for a number of reasons. Most obviously, it is hot—so hot, it is
