A new analysis of spacecraft data collected near the tip of Earth’s magnetotail sheds light on how geomagnetic activity affects the motion of electrons in this region.
PG&E shut down the power to Berkeley’s Space Sciences Laboratory right before a satellite launch.
The first simultaneous observations of multiple electromagnetic wave types in Earth’s magnetosphere may inaugurate a new field of inquiry into cross-frequency wave interactions.
Magnetic and electric field measurements at Earth’s surface provide information on Earth’s interior and on space weather. An open-source central repository of these data has received a major update.
When it comes to Saturn’s space environment, summer wins over winter in controlling the periodic flows of electrically charged particles and magnetic fields.
The turbulent pockets of air inside storms can help to build up static electricity in the atmosphere, according to a new study.
Fifty years ago, a sounding rocket made history by taking the first measurement of an electric field in space. What techniques were used to capture this data?
Variations in Earth’s magnetic field can induce electric fields in the ground, driving damaging currents through our power grids.
Cables and circuitry inside your gadgets' screens act as accidental antennae that broadcast screens' contents. A new study says the industry needs to fix this security risk before hackers exploit it.
New research shows that an electric field surrounding Venus is stripping its atmosphere of water—and the same phenomenon may plague exoplanets scientists hope might be habitable.
