    3 hours ago  The Sun expels a constant outflow of particles and magnetic fields known as the solar wind and vast clouds of hot plasma and radiation called coronal mass ejections. When this solar material streams across space and strikes Earth’s magnetosphere, the space occupied by Earth’s magnetic field, it can become trapped and held in two donut-shaped belts around the planet called the Van Allen Belts.   The exoplanet Kb, a young world in the Hyades cluster orbiting an M-dwarf star, raises intriguing questions. We’d like to know how it formed, for Kb is much more dense than we would expect for a world slightly smaller than Neptune. Planets in a range between Earth and Neptune seem to be common around other.

The list of acronyms and abbreviations related to OSL - Orbiting Solar Laboratory. The Manned Orbiting Laboratory (MOL) was part of the United States Air Force's human spaceflight program.

The project was developed from early United States Air Force (USAF) concepts of crewed space stations to be used for satellite reconnaissance purposes, and was a successor to the canceled Boeing X Dyna-Soar military reconnaissance space plane.

MOL evolved into a single-use laboratory. The Manned Orbiting Laboratory was conceived as an experimental laboratory for human spaceflight, but was recast as a secret reconnaissance platform in during the height of the Cold War.

The vehicle would have travelled in low-earth orbit and passed repeatedly over the northern and southern polar regions to better spy on the Soviet Union. The MORL (Manned Orbiting Research Laboratory) was a s NASA Langley concept for a small cylindrical space station, which would have a crew of six be powered by solar design, developed extensively by Douglas Aircraft, called for a crew quarters area, laboratory area, and a hangar for receiving space freighters to transfer supplies.

So the U.S. Air Force started making plans for an even higher spy platform—in space. This idea, announced officially on Decem as a “single use laboratory” to “prove utility of man in space for military missions,” was called the Manned Orbiting Laboratory, or auts would ride to their spartan space station in the orbital transportation of the day—a Gemini B.

The 8th Orbiting Solar Observatory (OSO-8) was launched on 21 June While OSO-8's primary objective was to observe the Sun, four instruments were dedicated to observations of other celestial X-ray sources brighter than a few milliCrab.

OSO-8 ceased operations on 1. The Orbiting Solar Observatory series, begun in the s, took on a new look with OSO 8. After the launch of three more OSO spacecraft of the original design, NASA orbited a much larger satellite created to investigate the sun's lower corona, the chromosphere, and their interface in.

The Manned Orbiting Laboratory, which was to use a Gemini space capsule and a secret corps of military astronauts, would have housed NRO spying equipment.

The SOLar RADiation satellite program (SOLRAD) was conceived in the late s as an improved means of studying the sun's effects on Earth, particularly during periods of heightened solar activity. Of prime interest were the effects of solar radiation on the ionosphere, which had critical importance to Naval communications.

SOLRAD was NRL's and the nation's longest continuing. Items ordered from Orbiting Books may be subject to tax in certain states, based on the state to which the order is shipped.

It was the 5th satellite put into orbit as part of the Orbiting Solar Observatory program. (Courtesy NASA/GSFC) The objectives of the OSO satellite series were to perform solar physics experiments above the atmosphere during a complete solar cycle and to map the entire celestial sphere for direction and intensity of UV, X-ray and gamma radiation.

The system cataloged as SS is located some 15 lightyears away in the Milky Way and consists of a giant star with about 30 times the mass of our sun and a black hole with about 10 to 20 solar masses.

The two objects are orbiting each other with a period of 13 days, while the black hole sucks matter from the giant star. All books are as described. Books can be returned for refund including shipping within 7 days, only if they are not as described, or the incorrect title, and if the customer has telephoned and checked first.

Our solar system has but one planet orbiting in what is commonly known as the habitable zone — at a distance from the host star where water could be liquid at times rather than always ice or gas.

That planet, of course, is Earth. But from a theoretical, dynamical perspective, does this always have. The Juno spacecraft orbiting Jupiter just revealed mechanisms driving mammoth storms in the Jovian atmosphere.

Storms on Jupiter form ammonia-rich hail — called mushballs — in the atmosphere. Solar wind accelerates as it moves away from the sun, so rapidly that its magnetic field "bends back on itself", according to NASA.
