  • HORIBA Jobin Yvon gratings equip two JUNO instruments

    In Greek and Roman mythology, Jupiter drew a veil of clouds around himself to hide his mischief. It was Jupiter's wife, the goddess Juno, who was able to peer through the clouds and reveal Jupiter's true nature. The JUNO spacecraft will also look beneath the clouds to see what the planet is up to, not seeking signs of misbehavior, but helping us to understand the planet's structure and history. ...

  • High in Sodium: Highly charged Tungsten ions may diagnose fusion energy reactors

    Just as health-food manufacturers work on developing the best possible sodium substitutes for low-salt diets, physicists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have acquired new knowledge on a promising sodium alternative of their own. Sodium-like tungsten ions could pepper—and conveniently monitor—the hot plasma soup inside fusion energy devices, potential sources of ...

  • HORIBA Jobin Yvon Grating Helps NASA Discover Icy Mountains on Pluto

    On July 14, 2015, the NEW HORIZONS probe flew over and sent pictures of the planet Pluto, and its satellite Charon, revealing information about their geology, their surface and atmosphere. Pictures of mountains show this geological activity occurred less than 100 million years ago. Areas of carbon monoxide ice, methane, nitrogen were detected. The Pluto's atmosphere consists mainly of nitrogen. ...

  • Ozone hole grows but is below 2006 record

    Scientists from the German Aerospace Centre (DLR) have discovered that the ozone hole over Antarctica has expanded this year against what it was in 2007, but is smaller than what it was in 2006. The ozone is a protective atmospheric layer protecting Earth from harmful ultraviolet rays. Failure to shield the planet can trigger a multitude of health ailments in people and harm biodiversity. While ...

  • HORIBA Jobin Yvon grating in ROSETTA mission

    ESA’s comet-chasing mission Rosetta was launched on the 2nd of March 2004 and through a complex series of flybys (three times past Earth and once past Mars) arrived ten years after at its destination: comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko. In June 2011, Rosetta was put into deep-space hibernation for the coldest, most distant leg of the journey (800 million kilometres from the sun) and was ...

  • Ball Aerospace Selected by NASA for TEMPO Air Pollution Mission

    Ball Aerospace & Technologies Corp. is part of a team selected to build the first space-based instrument to monitor major air pollutants across the North American continent for NASA's Tropospheric Emissions: Monitoring of Pollution (TEMPO) mission. Led by the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, Cambridge, Mass., the TEMPO team will build a geostationary ultraviolet-visible (UV-VIS) ...

  • 2008 ozone hole larger than last year - ESA

    The 2008 ozone hole – a thinning in the ozone layer over Antarctica – is larger both in size and ozone loss than 2007 but is not as large as 2006. Ozone is a protective atmospheric layer found in about 25 kilometres altitude that acts as a sunlight filter shielding life on Earth from harmful ultraviolet rays, which can increase the risk of skin cancer and cataracts and harm marine life.  This ...
