‘Bubble’ around Earth

#Earth #space #radiations #NASA #VLF #barrier #radiotransmissions NASA has spotted a man-made barrier around the Earth that prevents high-energy space radiation from reaching the planet. VLF (Very Low Frequency) radio communications interact with particles in space, affecting how and where they move. These interactions can create a barrier around the Earth against natural high energy … Continue reading ‘Bubble’ around Earth

A stopwatch that can measure billionth of a second!

#NASA #space #Topology #Earth #surface #height #physics #science #ICESat-2 I am so fascinated by NASA. Always having something new to show. We will be able to record the precise height of sea ice, glaciers, forests and other Earth's surface with the help of a stopwatch timer that NASA scientists developed. The timer can supposedly measure … Continue reading A stopwatch that can measure billionth of a second!
