EUROPA SEEN IN NEW COLOR
Jupiter's icy moon Europa has always been a special candidate for hosting extraterrestrial life within the Solar System but this new image revealing the reddish bands on the surface which has most probably arisen due to the interaction of Europa's icy crust with the ocean below it''s surface resulting in the creation of hydrated salts has excited planetary scientists to a whole different level. This image was initially a grey scale one taken by the Galileo spacecraft in 1997. This newly released image has been combined with a low-resolution colored image taken at a different orbit.

Whoa...that looks so magnificent!!!
 
Magnificent CME Erupts on the Sun - August 31

On August 31, 2012 a long filament of solar material that had been hovering in the Sun's outer atmosphere, the corona, erupted out into space at 4:36 p.m. EDT
On August 31, 2012 a long filament of solar material that had been hovering in the sun's atmosphere, the corona, erupted out into space at 4:36 p.m. EDT. The coronal mass ejection, or CME, traveled at over 900 miles per second. The CME did not travel directly toward Earth, but did connect with Earth's magnetic environment, or magnetosphere, causing aurora to appear on the night of Monday, September 3. Pictured here is a lighten blended version of the 304 and 171 angstrom wavelengths. Cropped

SUBSURFACE OCEAN ON TITAN MAY BE AS SALTY AS THE DEAD SEA

Completing 10 years of orbiting Saturn, the gravity data from the Cassini spacecraft has revealed an astonishing fact about Titan's subsurface ocean. The subsurface ocean on Titan is now believed to be as salty as the Dead Sea. Using the data collected over a period of ten years researchers have come up with a new model for the icy crust on Titan. The new model suggests that the thickness of the ice crust varies across the surface and may imply that the subsurface ocean is freezing day by day thereby reducing the chances of finding any life in this ocean.

The subsurface ocean inside Saturn’s largest moon, Titan, could be as salty as any body of water here on Earth, a new study reports. Data collected by NASA's Cassini mission suggests Titan's ocean is as salty as the Dead Sea.

NEW MARTIAN MAP REVEALS INTERESTING SECRETS OF MARS' HIGHLANDS
This newly released detailed Martian map reveals that water must have played a role in the formation of Mars' southern highlands. This map shows the evolution of two canyon systems in particular namely Reull Vallis and Waitako Vallis which scientists believe formed when underground water came to the surface thus making the ground collapse. Until recent images of this from MRO arrived, scientists thought that these two canyon systems were a part of the same ancient canyon system. The new map also highlights the details of various small channels in this region.

An incredibly detailed new map of Mars' southern highlands shows how profoundly liquid water sculpted the region long ago, especially two canyon systems known as Waikato Vallis and Reull Vallis.

A NEW WAY OF FINDING A PROTOSTAR'S AGE
Finding a star's age has always been a challenge for scientists as there are hardly any good methods doing so. A new research has come up with an alternative technique which may help scientists to a great extent. The researchers believe that a protostar can be dated based on the acoustic vibrations it produces. Physicists have theorized that protostars vibrate differently than other stars. Data has shown that younger stars vibrate slower than adult stars. These vibrations can be indirectly detected in the brightness of the star.

Precisely dating a star can have important consequences for understanding stellar evolution and any circling exoplanets. But it’s one of the toughest plights in astronomy with only a few existing techniques. One method is to find a star with radioactive elements like uranium and thorium, whose half-lives are known and can be used to date…

CASSINI MARKS 10 YEARS OF STUDYING THE RINGED PLANET

The Cassini spacecraft arrived at Saturn ten years ago and is still exploring Saturn and it's moons. This mission was supposed to last for only four years but has been granted three mission extensions allowing it to orbit the planet till date. Cassini has shaped the modern understanding of Saturn in a dramatic way. 

To know more about the top discoveries made by this spacecraft:

NASA's Cassini spacecraft marks a big milestone today (June 30) — a decade exploring Saturn and its many moons.

VOYAGER 1 IN INTERSTELLAR SPACE
There has been a lot of debate regarding Voyager 1's surroundings but the latest data from the Voyager 1 spacecraft has confirmed that it is situated in interstellar space. Scientists came to this conclusion after studying the measurements taken by the spacecraft during a massive Coronal Mass Ejection or CME. Voyager 1 measured the vibrations inflicted on the particles around it due to the outburst produced by the Sun thereby allowing scientists to conclude about the density of particles in that region which turned out to be higher than that calculated in the outer regions of the Heliosphere.

With new data collected by NASA's Voyager 1 spacecraft, researchers can confirm that the far-flung probe is indeed cruising through interstellar space, as mission scientists announced last year.
