NASA’s Newest View of the Sun


NASA hosts a news update about the June 26 launch of the Interface Region Imaging Spectrograph (IRIS) mission from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.

IRIS is a NASA Small Explorer Mission to observe how solar material moves in a dynamic million-degree atmosphere that drives the solar wind around the Sun’s atmosphere. The region is the origin of most of the ultraviolet solar emission that impacts the near-Earth space environment and Earth’s climate.

  1. Oh wow!… If you want to be entertained by one of the most peculiar cults, please visit some of the "Moon hoax" videos here on Y-Tube.
    Look at the comment section and you'll be amazed at some of the arguments they have against Apollo/NASA.
    I for one find it very amusing, but then again…..I like "rug-burns".
    I'll look for ya' on those sites Bob!
    BTW…have you seen the series" When We Left Earth" ?

  2. My perception is that the Sun looks much larger than when I was young.  Others are commenting on this as well. Has the Sun gotten bigger or expanded?  The axial tilt may explain why the ice caps would shift but why is Antarctic ice shifting and growing while Arctic ice is disappearing altogether?
