NASACast Audio 18 Sep 2018, 19:47 UTC NASA in Silicon Valley Live is a talk show that features conversations with scientists, researchers, engineers and all-around cool people who work at NASA to push the boundaries of innovation. In this episode streamed on Sept. 13, 2018, we talk about studying life in space. Plus, we share some genius space hacks for doing life science research on Earth and aboard the International Space Station.
StarDate Online 18 Sep 2018, 05:00 UTC The Milky Way galaxy and its nearest big neighbor, the Andromeda galaxy, are like two children on a see-saw: They’re up and down. Both are giant spiral galaxies. Andromeda is about two-and-a-half million light-years away, in the constellation Andromeda. Under dark skies, it’s just visible as a hazy smudge of light — the farthest object that most people can see with their eyes alone.

The Sun constantly outgasses the solar wind, but also periodically belches huge blobs of plasma, energetic particles, and magnetic fields that can wreak havoc on Earth’s communications networks and other electrical systems.
