Conclusions from ENA observations from HSTOF: The heliosphere has a tail and is asymmetrical! Print E-mail

Magnetic field strongly disturbs the motion of electrically charged particles in space but neutral atoms are insensitive to magnetic forces and consequently they move freely in all directions. This is true also for energetic neutral atoms (ENAs) in the heliosphere.

The smallest dust grains in the circumsolar dust cloud are the nanodust particles, i.e., the dust grains with the sizes of a few to a few tens millionth parts of millimeter. They are so small they include just several dozen thousands of atoms.

Interplanetary space is filled with magnetized plasma from the Sun (the solar wind) and interstellar gas, mainly hydrogen and helium, which continuously flows through the heliosphere. The interstellar atoms are ionized by extreme ultraviolet radiation and the solar wind. In result of ionization of the interstellar atoms, new ions in the solar wind are created.

The research work: “Dynamic structure of energetic particles in the near Earth space” won special competition organized by the President of the Polish Academy of Sciences (PAS) and President of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (NASU). This research was performed using meas-urements from Polish X-ray spectrophotometer SphinX and the Ukrainian Satellite Telescope of Electrons and Protons STEP-F. Both SphinX, and STEP-F instruments were operating onboard CORONAS - PHOTON satellite. Awarded also were joint works on development of further scientific experiment for interplanetary spacecraft “Interhelioprobe".

Rosetta: Scrutinizing the nucleus Print E-mail
Thursday, 30 October 2014 11:41

The Rosetta spacecraft continues to move in close vicinity of the nucleus of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, and it has reached distances less than 10 kilometers from the surface. Images have been taken with an amazing resolution. Even so, it is not immediately clear what it is that we are seeing. This discussion is ongoing and will certainly continue for some time. Actually, even the large-scale features are sometimes hard to interpret, and this makes it difficult to reach conclusions about the most fundamental questions about the origin of the nucleus.
