“scientists at Dalhousie University, concludes that there are about 8.7 million species on Earth. The team analyzed the numerical relationship between species, genus, family and order in well-studied life-forms and used that pattern to estimate the number of species in categories of life that haven’t been well studied. Some scientists argue that that almost surely underestimates some lesser-known classes of life.
Only some 1.25 million species have been described in the 253 years since Linnaeus devised the method we use to name them. This means that if there are, indeed, roughly 8.7 million species over all, nearly 90 percent of the species on Earth have not yet been discovered and described. ”

Space instrument observes new characteristics of solar flares; Findings may lead to improved space weather forecasting
“NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, which is carrying a suite of instruments including a $32 million University of Colorado Boulder package, has provided scientists with new information that energy from some solar flares is stronger and lasts longer than previously thought.
Space & Time

* Northern Lights
Earth & Climate
* Geomagnetic Storms
* Energy and the Environment
* Solar flare
* Solar radiation
* Geomagnetic storm
Using SDO’s Extreme ultraviolet Variability Experiment, or EVE instrument designed and built at CU-Boulder, scientists have observed that radiation from solar flares sometimes continues for up to five hours beyond the initial minutes of the main phase of a solar flare occurrence.”

Follow the Desert RATS Team During Analog Testing
The NASA Desert Research and Technology Studies team, also known as Desert RATS, marks its fourteenth annual field test and the first time a mission to an asteroid will be simulated. While NASA has landed astronauts on the moon and rovers on Mars, the agency is only beginning to tackle the challenges of visiting an asteroid. Desert RATS team members will conduct simulated human and robotic space exploration test activities in extreme Arizona terrain to investigate and develop realistic technical and mission-driven operations similar to those of an asteroid mission.
