Pasadena, CA – New research on solar storms finds that they not only can cause regions of excessive electrical charge in the upper atmosphere above Earth’s poles, they also can do the exact opposite: cause regions that are nearly depleted of electrically charged particles.
The finding adds to our knowledge of how solar storms affect Earth and could possibly lead to improved radio communication and navigation systems for the Arctic.
A team of researchers from Denmark, the United States and Canada made the discovery while studying a solar storm that reached Earth on February 19th, 2014.
Nashville, TN – The Neal Morse Band is back on the road traveling under the guise of The Road Called Home Tour. The trek blasted off at Rocketown in Nashville, Tennessee on Saturday, January 14th, 2017.
In the coming months the quintet will journey through the U.S., Canada and Europe in support of the group’s latest epic. Clocking in at over 100 minutes, this progressive pageantry runs the range from melodic to moody to mind blowing.

Pasadena, CA – NASA scientists, including many from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California, are crisscrossing the globe in 2017 — from a Hawaiian volcano to Colorado mountaintops and west Pacific islands — to investigate critical scientific questions about how our planet is changing and what impacts humans are having on it.
Field experiments are an important part of NASA’s Earth science research.
Clarksville, TN – To say it’s been a very contentious couple of years would be a major understatement. Suffice it to say that it seems our great country is divided as bad as I can remember. Being stationed overseas during the sixties, I was far removed from the Civil Rights movement, and the riots and demonstrations that were so prevalent.
Now with the internet and social media, it seems that not only are we all just a “click” away from instant news, fake and otherwise, but we are also able to connect with our favorite rock stars, actors, entertainers and politicians. «Read the rest of this article»

Pasadena, CA – Quantum physics is a field that appears to give scientists superpowers. Those who understand the world of extremely small or cold particles can perform amazing feats with them — including teleportation — that appear to bend reality.
The science behind these feats is complicated, and until recently, didn’t exist outside of lab settings. But that’s changing: researchers have begun to implement quantum teleportation in real-world contexts. Being able to do so just might revolutionize modern phone and Internet communications, leading to highly secure, encrypted messaging.

Greenbelt, MD – The majestic auroras have captivated humans for thousands of years, but their nature – the fact that the lights are electromagnetic and respond to solar activity – was only realized in the last 150 years.
Thanks to coordinated multi-satellite observations and a worldwide network of magnetic sensors and cameras, close study of auroras has become possible over recent decades. Yet, auroras continue to mystify, dancing far above the ground to some, thus far, undetected rhythm.
Nashville, TN – Tennessee was ranked the top state in the nation for job creation resulting from foreign direct investment (FDI) in 2015, according to the recently released 2016 IBM Global Location Trends report.
