"The Sun has been a driver of these systems more than we had any
right to expect," says Daniel Baker, Principal Investigator, Van
Allen Probes Relativistic Electron Proton Telescope (REPT). "We're seeing brand new features we
hadn't expected." In a press conference on Dec. 4th members of the Van
Allen Probes science team discussed current findings made in unlocking the
mysteries of the radiation belts. Energetic events and ejections of plasma from
the Sun caused dramatic changes in the radiation belts that, for the first
time, were observed by twin spacecraft within the belts.
"We expected to see a fairly placid radiation belt system,"
Baker reports. "Instead, we see that
the belts have been extraordinarily active and dynamic during the first few
weeks. We're looking in the right places at the right times." The twin
probes, built and managed for NASA by the Johns Hopkins University Applied
Physics Laboratory (APL) in Laurel, Md., contain identical sets of five
instrument suites. These suites have confirmed previous hypotheses about the
belts' behavior, while also revealing that the belts are a far more dynamic and
changing environment than previously thought.

magnetosphere captures charged particles from the billions of tons of
plasma ejected by the Sun and from other sources; fields and waves of
electricity and magnetism control and guide the charged particles within the
belts, with the particles "surfing" on the waves, losing or gaining large
amounts of energy along the way as they enter and leave the region.
study just released indicates the June 2012 discovery by
a team of Japanese scientists showing a spike in carbon-14 found in tree rings
dating between 774-775 AD - was most likely caused by a CME (coronal mass
ejection). Until now, the 1859 "Carrington Event" has been
documented as the largest solar event to hit Earth ever recorded.
A research team lead
by Adrian Melott, Professor of Physics and Astronomy at the University of
Kansas and Brian Thomas, Professor of Physics and Astronomy at Washburn
University, have examined the evidence and zeroed in on the likely source of
the 774-775 AD carbon-14 event.
It was noted that
recent observations of stars similar to the Sun made by the Kepler
satellite suggest that they are flaring at levels similar to that which they
suggest - and higher - at average intervals of a few hundred to thousand years.
This new discovery
has been titled the "Charlemagne Event" - named after Charlemagne's
victory over the Lombards during the same period. "What our team concluded was the Charlemagne Event would be 10 or
20 times greater than the Carrington Event
Excitement is building over soon-to-be-released results from NASA's Curiosity rover, which is three months into a two-year mission to determine if Mars has ever been capable of supporting microbial life.
In an interview on (NPR) National Public Radio, aired Tuesday, lead mission investigator John Grotzinger hinted at something major but said there would be no announcement for several weeks.
"We're getting data from Curiosity," he said. "This data is going to be one for the history books. It's looking really good."
Scientists do not expect Curiosity to find aliens or living creatures but they hope to use it to analyze soil and rocks for signs the building blocks of life are present and may have supported life in the past.
