Nuclear fusion is a process in which two atomic nuclei combine to form a heavier nucleus, releasing a large amount of energy in the process. It is the process that powers the Sun and other stars and has the potential to provide a clean and nearly limitless source of energy here on Earth. The Basics […]

Sunspots are dark, cooler regions on the surface of the Sun that are caused by intense magnetic activity. They are important for understanding the behavior of our closest star and how it affects the Earth’s climate and space weather. Sunspot Characteristics: Sunspots are cooler and darker than the surrounding areas on the Sun’s surface, called […]

Comets are celestial bodies that consist of ice, dust, and gas, and are sometimes referred to as “dirty snowballs”. They are typically small and irregularly shaped, and they orbit the Sun on elongated orbits that can take them far beyond the orbit of Pluto. Comets are often described as some of the most beautiful objects […]

Meteors, also known as shooting stars, are objects from space that enter the Earth’s atmosphere and produce a bright streak of light as they burn up due to the friction with the atmosphere. These objects are typically small, ranging from the size of a grain of sand to a boulder, and originate from sources such […]

Asteroids are small, rocky objects that orbit the Sun. They are remnants from the formation of the Solar System, and there are millions of them in our Solar System. Asteroids can range in size from a few meters to hundreds of kilometers across, with the largest asteroid, Ceres, being almost 1,000 kilometers in diameter. Types […]
