How NASA scientists observe the sun at different wavelengths.

Sun is the biggest object of our solar system, and we all know how important sunlight is for us, what?  The sun can be tested by the sun's rays, yes, because NASA scientists observe the sun at different wavelengths. When a photograph of the sun was taken with a standard camera, this familiar image shows a yellow, featureless disk that would have a red wavelength when the sun's rays entered the Earth's atmosphere, because it would be  The pass loses blue wavelength.

The sun can, in fact, emit its light in all colors, the sun's yellow is the brightest wavelength, because it is the color we see with our naked eyes, and it also represents the camera. Scientific tests are carried out from the Earth by special instruments, in space telescopes, observing the light beyond the limits, visible with the naked eye, and sciatic about different components of the sun's surface and atmosphere from different wavelengths. Information comes out, scientists use them to paint the whole picture of different stars.

As we can see in the image, that colors float around the sun, we should note that the same area of ​​the sun looks different, as each wavelength of light represents the solar material at a specific temperature. We can extract information from wavelengths using two methods, one way is that by using a spectrometer, we can observe and measure multiple wavelengths of light simultaneously. And the same we can use the ranges, all around the sun  On the other hand, temperature and material display, it helps to form a composite.

The second approach is that SDO scientists have chosen 10 different wavelengths to observe for their atmospheric imaging assembly (AIA) instrument, and each wavelength is largely based on a single, and two, type of ions  Is, scientists chose each wavelength to illuminate a particular part of the sun's atmosphere.

4500: showing the sun's surface or photosphere. 
1700: show, the surface of the sun is a layer of the sun's atmosphere called the chromosphere, which lies just above the photosphere and is also where the temperature starts rising. 
1600: show's  A mixture between the upper photosphere and what is called the transition region, a region between the chromosphere and the uppermost layer of the sun's atmosphere is called the halo, The transition zone is where the temperature rises rapidly. 
304: This light is emitted from the chromosphere and the transition region. 
71: This wavelength represents the sun's atmosphere, or corona, when it is cool.  It shows a slightly warmer area of ​​the corona, and also much warmer material of a solar flare.
211 :: This shows the wavelength of the hot, magnetically active fields in the sun's corona.
335 It also has giant magnetic arcs coronal loops  Shows known as .
193: also shows the wavelengths of hot, magnetically active fields in corona 
94: This highlighted areas of the corona during a solar flare.
131: The hottest material in a flare.

NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope will be closed.

NASA briefly informed that the Spitzer Space Telescope will be permanently discontinued on January 30, 2020. After about 16 years of discovering the universe in light energy.  And by that time, the space shuttle has been working for more than 11 years beyond its prime mission, Spitzer examines the universe's various objects in infrared light.  It was in 2003 through the rocket that the American Space Research Organization NASA entered the space and entered the orbit around the Earth.  Spitzer rotates the sun on a path similar to that of the Earth but it runs a bit slower.  Today it is about 158 ​​million miles (254 million kilometers) away from our planet - more than 600 times the distance between Earth and Moon.  The spacing of Spitzer's orbit curve means that when the spacecraft indicates its fixed antenna on the earth to download data or receive commands, its solar panels tend to lean away from the sun.  During those periods, to operate the space shuttle, one should rely on…

SpaceX is launching its next dragon spacecraft.

SpaceX is preparing for its next mission, very soon Spacex will launch the Dragon Spacecraft with its Falcon 9 Rocket.
  SpaceX is the 18th commercial reproduction service mission, dragon spacecraft will be loaded with dozens of experiments made in space.  Launch date: Sunday, July 21, 2019 at 7:35 pm  International Space Station (ISS) us  The National Laboratory SpaceX's dragon is giving a finalization to more than two dozen payloads for launch in a circular circular laboratory.  Many of these payloads are aimed at improving human health on the earth, many of which are focused on drug development.  In addition, a series of payloads from identified private sector partners will be launched on this mission.  More than 40 student experiments and demonstrations have been included on the 18th Commercial Recepti Services Mission (CRS-18) of SpaceX.  One part of ISS American National Laboratory's goal is to encourage and engage next generation scientists.                              …

SpaceX,Dragon Cargo Returns Mission in Pacific ends with SplashDown

SpaceX dragon cargo spaceship dropped at 5:48 pm in the Pacific Ocean.  The EDT (2:48 p.m. PDT) is located approximately 202 miles southwest of Long Beach, California, which is located at the end of the company's 17th contracted Cargo Resipulli mission for NASA.  Spacecraft returned more than 4,200 pounds for other valuable scientific uses. Some scientific investigations of Dragon's return to Earth include: Overview of protein crystals growth, in the use of NASA's biophysics-6, to be interested in cancer treatment and radiation safety  There has been an increase in the growth of two proteins.  Scientists are using ground-based predictions and X-ray crystallography in space to determine that proteins are beneficial in crystallization in microbiology, where some proteins can grow with big and small flaws.Microglio biosynthesis in M…
