NASA Probe Sees Solar Wind Decline

The 33-year odyssey of NASA's Voyager 1 spacecraft has reached a distant point at the edge of our solar system where there is no outward motion of solar wind. Now hurtling toward interstellar space some 17.4 billion...

Dark Asteroids

NASA is set to launch a sensitive new infrared telescope to seek out sneaky things in the night sky -- among them, dark asteroids that could pose a threat to Earth....

Flight Dynamics data from THEMIS-B indicated that one of the electric field instrument sphere-shaped tip masses may have been struck by a meteoroid on October 14. All science instruments continue to collect the data and the probe and science instruments aboard the spacecraft continue to operate technically. The upcoming placing into Lissajous orbit will not be interrupted.

ARTEMIS Spacecraft Believed fixed by Object“Acceleration, Reconnection, Turbulence and Electrodynamics” are the acronym for ARTEMIS of the Moon’s Interaction with the Sun”. The mission uses two of the five in-orbit spacecraft from another NASA Heliophysics constellation of satellites THEMIS that were launched in 2007 and successfully completed their mission earlier in 2010.

The mission allowed NASA to repurpose two in-orbit spacecraft to expand their useful science mission. ARTEMIS mission will use real-time measurements of particles and electric and magnetic fields from two locations to provide the first three-dimensional perspective of how energetic particle acceleration occurs near the Moon's orbit, in the distant magnetosphere, and in the solar wind.
