Two New NASA Missions Team Up To Explore Earth’s Ionosphere

JK NNI NEWS RAFIA BASHIR Source: Micheala Sosby, NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center Like Earth, space has weather. Except instead of swirling winds and downpours of precipitation, space weather is defined by shifting electric and magnetic fields and rains of charged particles. At the very beginning of space, starting just 60 miles above Earth’s surface, there’s a layer of the ...

January 31st Supermoon Will Feature a Total Lunar Eclipse

JK NNI NEWS RAFIA BASHIR A supermoon is a Moon that is full when it is also at or near its closest point in its orbit around Earth. Since the Moon’s orbit is elliptical, one side (apogee) is about 30,000 miles (50,000 km) farther from Earth than the other (perigee). Nearby perigee full Moons appear about 14% bigger and 30% ...
