NASA - 'First Light' - Reflection of the incoming solar energy back to space in blue and green

NASA - 'First Light' - Reflection of the incoming solar energy back to space in blue and green | VIM | Scoop.it
The doors are open on NASA's Suomi NPP satellite and the newest version of the Clouds and the Earth's Radiant Energy System (CERES) instrument is scanning Earth for the first time, helping to assure continued availability of measurements of the energy leaving the Earth-atmosphere system.

 

The CERES results help scientists to determine the Earth's energy balance, providing a long-term record of this crucial environmental parameter that will be consistent with those of its predecessors.

 

Thick cloud cover tends to reflect a large amount of incoming solar energy back to space (blue/green/white image), but at the same time, reduce the amount of outgoing heat lost to space (red/blue/orange image).

 

Contrast the areas that do not have cloud cover (darker colored regions) to get a sense for how much impact the clouds have on incoming and outgoing energy. Credit: NASA/NOAA/CERES Team

Tiny Planets Around a Tiny Star

Tiny Planets Around a Tiny Star | VIM | Scoop.it

On Jan. 11, 2012, astronomers announced the discovery of a miniature solar system made up of three tiny planets - all of them smaller than Earth - in orbit around the red dwarf star KOI-961 about 130 light-years from Earth.

The planets are the smallest alien worlds yet discovered and were found using NASA's Kepler space observatory.

See how the small alien planets stack up to our own solar system and Jupiter in the SPACE.com infographic above.

Space Junk Problem DetailedCredit: NASA/Orbital Debris Program Office.

Each dot represents a bit of known space junk that's at least 4 inches (10 cm) in low-Earth orbit, where the space station and shuttles roam.

In total, some 19,000 manmade objects this size or bigger orbit Earth as of July 2009; most are in low-Earth orbit.

Countless smaller objects are also circling the planet.
