Tracking Solar Storms by NASA and ESA Space Crafts

26 Aug 17

Scientists are using seven spacecraft and computer models to study coronal mass ejection from Sun outward to Mars, Comet 67P, Jupiter and also the use of New Horizons spacecraft now beyond Pluto. Sun is an extremely active space body that not only releases a constant stream of material called solar wind but also occasional bursts of faster-moving material called coronal mass ejections (CMEs). 

The researchers in NASA aimed to aware people about CMEs and how they move through space. They also wish to improve our understanding about CMEs interaction with the magnetic field around Earth, affecting satellites, interfering with GPS signals, triggering auroras and straining power grids. Scientists used data from 10 NASA and ESA (European Space Agency) spacecraft in the way of a CME to know how these solar storms travel in space. The findings were published on 14th August, 2017 in the Journal of Geophysical Research.

 The new study added important information to the models needed to trace how material moves and changes throughout space in the solar system.
