URANUS' MAGNETOSPHERE OPENS & CLOSES
-
Newly analyzed data from Voyager shows that the magnetosphere is ‘open’ in one orientation, allowing solar wind to flow into the magnetosphere; it later closes, forming a shield against the solar wind and deflecting it away from the planet. -

Magnetic tempest 🔥 Supercomputer simulation of turbulence in the magnetosphere, the magnetic shield layer that protects Earth from solar wind.
.
"During solar storms, the intensity of energetic particles in the solar wind can increase dramatically, wreaking havoc on Earth's technological systems. This so-called space weather has caused over $4 billion in satellite losses alone. Spacecraft observations have revealed that many regions in the magnetosphere exhibit turbulence, which can enhance mixing–just as we mix cream into coffee by stirring it... We provided our simulation data to a team of engineers at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center who are using it in the design and planning of NASA's upcoming Magnetospheric Multiscale Mission (MMS). The primary goal of MMS is to detect and make detailed measurements of the electron-scale features in the magnetosphere that are thought to have global consequences"

The simulation itself was conducted with @nasa supercomputing resources. @nasagoddard From the research of Homa Karimabadi and Ari Le, University of California San Diego @ucsandiego .

#throwback post! Fifty years ago this weekend, in 1966, the #Esrange sounding rocket range and research centre was inaugurated. Located outside the town of #Kiruna in northern #Sweden, Esrange was built in 1964 by ESRO, the European Space Research Organisation, forerunner of ESA. The first #rocket launch from Esrange occurred on 19 November 1966.
152 sounding rockets were launched from Esrange between 1966 and 1972: 72 under ESRO's direction and 80 within national programmes. Most flew during auroral activity to study the effects of energetic electrons and ions that had been accelerated in the distant #magnetosphere before precipitating along magnetic field lines in the auroral #atmosphere. The programme came to an abrupt end in 1972 as part of the preparations for the creation and expansion of ESA, and ownership was transferred to the then newly created SSC - Swedish Space Corporation.

Deep dive: @NASA’s #Juno mission will peer deep beneath #Jupiter’s clouds and map its magnetic field. Magnetospheres are the result of a collision between a planet's intrinsic magnetic field and the supersonic solar wind. Jupiter's magnetosphere -- the volume carved out in the solar wind where the planet's magnetic field dominates --extends up to nearly 2 million miles (3 million kilometers). If it were visible in the night sky, Jupiter's magnetosphere would appear to be about the same size as Earth's full moon. By studying Jupiter's magnetosphere, scientists will gain a better understanding about how Jupiter's magnetic field is generated. They also hope to determine whether the planet has a solid core, which will tell us how Jupiter formed during the earliest days of our solar system. More: http://go.nasa.gov/293uOsI (link in bio)

You have to love the Aurora Borealis. It is caused by interactions between the 🌏's magnetic field + electrons shot at us by the ☀️.

Un agujero coronal sustancial se girar en una posición en la que se enfrenta a la tierra (ago. 9-11, 2017 los agujeros coronal son áreas de campo magnético abierto que arrojan partículas cargadas como viento solar que se extiende al espacio. Si ese viento solar interactúa con nuestra propia magnetosfera puede generar aurora. En esta vista del sol en la luz ultravioleta extrema, el agujero coronal aparece como el tramo oscuro cerca del centro del sol. Fue la característica más distintiva del sol durante la semana pasada.
