Massive X-Class Flare Released on June 6 [full disk] by NASA Goddard Photo and Video on flickr.com

www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/sunearth/news/News070712-X1.1f... Active Region 1515 released an X1.1 class flare from the lower right of the sun on July 6, 2012, peaking at 7:08 PM EDT. This flare caused a radio blackout, labeled as an R3 on the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrations scale that goes from R1 to R5. Such blackouts can cause disruption to both high and low level radio frequencies. Earth's magnetosphere also underwent a minor geomagnetic storm on the evening of July 6 in…

This looks like the Moon but it39s actually Mercury Image source The Terminator is Here by NASA Goddard Photo and Video via Flickr

NASA release date June 21, 2011 The terminator of Mercury, shown here in color, is the line between light and dark, or day and night. On Mercury, three days are equivalent to two years, or in other words, the planet spins around its axis three times for every two orbits around the Sun. The first Mercury year of the MESSENGER mission ended on Monday, June 13, 2011. This image was acquired as part of MDIS's color base map. The color base map is composed of WAC images taken through eight…

La lumière se déplace à près de 300.000 km/s. C'est à la fois très rapide à l'échelle de l'homme, mais très lent devant l'immensité de l'univers. Trois petites vidéos réalisées par un planétologue de la Nasa permettent de s'en rendre compte très facilement.

This is the distance between Earth, the Moon and Mars with the correct distances but with Earth, Moon and Mars 20 times bigger (so you can see them!). The re...

NASA Satellites See Typhoon Bopha Now Heading Toward the Philippines by NASA Goddard Photo and Video, via Flickr

The MODIS instrument aboard NASA's Aqua satellite captured this visible image of Tropical Storm Bopha moving through Micronesia in the western North Pacific Ocean on Nov. 28 at 0335 UTC. Notice the large "tail" or band of thunderstorms wrapping into the center from the west and south. Credit: NASA Goddard MODIS Rapid Response Team NASA image use policy.

Dans l'ergosphère d'un trou noir en rotation, les particules de matière noire se désintégrant par collision peuvent donner des photons gamma dont les énergies sont amplifiées. Cette image issue de calculs sur ordinateur montre un tel trou noir rayonnant en gamma. L'émission la plus intense, sur la gauche, correspond à la région du trou noir en rotation dans la direction de l'observateur. © Jeremy Schnittman, Nasa Goddard

Des particules de matière noire se créeraient massivement autour des trous noirs en rotation. Plusieurs mécanismes impliquent qu'elles modifieraient notamment le spectre des ondes...

This is an image of magnetic loops on the sun, captured by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO)

Caption: This is an image of magnetic loops on the sun, captured by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO). It has been processed to highlight the edges of each loop to make the structure more clear. A series of loops such as this is known as a flux rope, and these lie at the heart of eruptions on the sun known as coronal mass ejections (CMEs.) This is the first time scientists were able to discern the timing of a flux rope's formation. (Blended 131 Angstrom and 171 Angstrom images of July…
