The exact origins of the aurora-like STEVE have eluded scientists since the first research on this phenomenon was published in 2018. Now, observations from citizen scientists — who were also instrumental in the original discovery — are giving new clues.
The #ParkerSolarProbe team has released a new batch of science data, collected this summer during the spacecraft’s 5th solar flyby. In 2021, Parker Solar Probe will complete 4 solar flybys and 2 Venus gravity assists. More on what’s next for the mission:
Measurements from NASA’s New Horizons mission are revising our estimates of a key property of the space between the stars: how thick it is. New findings show that the local interstellar medium contains about 40% more hydrogen atoms than previously thought.
This makes me smile big! 😊 A new @ESA/@NASASun SOHO comet discovered today by *12-YR OLD* @RafalBiros! It's his 1st SOHO comet, and makes him the youngest SOHO comet discoverer... perhaps the youngest comet discoverer ever?! Huge congrats!! 🎉
That's how you @DoNASAScience!👏
12 years old and already discovering comets. How very cool! Congrats and thank you!
