Solar Flare, Solar Fury
Back at the tail of summer, our very own Sun sent out a cloud of plasma.  At speeds of over 900 miles per second, the plasma filament was estimated to be around 100,000 degrees Fahrenheit.  Measuring an astounding 30 earths across, NASA captured images and data using its newest...
india-mars-1
As you may already be aware, India just arrived at Mars. This makes India the latest Asian nation to arrive at the Red Planet, where it joins a rather exclusive club of just 4 space agencies that have reached this distant, dusty world. The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO)...

Chris Hadfield with students
Okay, so not really teaching, more like using students to help do an experiment to read radioactivity on the ground, in the sky and in space. Connected directly to an astronaut's work in orbit, these students will get to help do an experiment that will not only be useful,...
