Gamma-ray bursts are the most luminous explosions in the cosmos. Astronomers think most occur when the core of a massive star runs out of nuclear fuel, collapses under its own weight, and forms a black hole. The black hole then drives jets of particles that drill all the way through the collapsing star at nearly the speed of light. Artist's rendering.

Watch this video on the  NASA Goddard YouTube channel .  This visualization shows the position of the sun's magnetic fields from January 1997 to December 2013. The field lines swarm with activity: The magenta lines show where the sun's overall field is negative and the green lines show where it is positive. Additional gray lines represent areas of local magnetic variation. 

The entire sun's magnetic polarity, flips approximately every 11 years – though sometimes it takes quite a bit longer – and defines what's known as the solar cycle. The visualization shows how in 1997, the sun shows the positive polarity on the top, and the negative polarity on the bottom. Over the next 16 years, each set of lines is seen to creep toward the opposite pole. By the end of the movie, the flip is almost complete. 

At the height of each magnetic flip, the sun goes through periods of more solar activity, during which there are more sunspots, and more eruptive events such as solar flares and coronal mass ejections, or CMEs. The point in time with the most sunspots is called solar maximum.   11429   Sun Magnetic Field Flip Live Shots and Media Resources

NASA's Operation IceBridge is a six-year airborne science mission to study Earth's polar ice with a range of instruments including lasers, radars, a magnetometer, and a gravimeter. This year for the first time the mission based its operations out of the National Science Foundation's McMurdo Station and its floating sea ice runway. The majority of IceBridge's science flights in this campaign were over land ice — ice sheets, floating ice shelves, and glaciers. But it also few an 8-hour science flight over the seasonal sea ice of the Ross Sea. Here are some of the video highlights from that flight.

Swift's UVOT captured the new supernova in three exposures taken on Jan. 22, 2014. Mid-ultraviolet light is shown in blue, near-UV light in green, and visible light in red. Thick dust in M82 scatters much of the highest-energy light, which is why the supernova appears yellowish here. The image is 17 arcminutes across, or slightly more than half the apparent diameter of a full moon.  Credit: NASA/Swift/P. Brown, TAMU   11459   NASA's Swift Images SN 2014J in M82

As a Landsat satellite flies over the surface of the Earth the instruments aboard the satellite are able to view a swath 185 kilometers wide and collect images along that swath as the satellite proceeds through its orbit. The spacecraft travels at approximately 4.7 miles per second. The satellite travels from north to south while it's over the sunlit portion of the Earth, and travels south to north over the dark side of the Earth. One orbit takes about 99 minutes, so that's about approximately 15 orbits in a 24 hour period. The orbit's maintained such that after 16 days, the entire surface of the Earth has come within view of the Landsat instruments, while sunlit, and then on day 17 the first ground path is repeated. So we get to view the entire surface once every 16 days.    For complete transcript, click  here .  Watch this video on the  NASA Goddard YouTube channel .   11481   Landsat Orbit Swath

Fairing Encapsulation Compete Footage courtesy of JAXA/MHI On Feb. 11, the Core Observatory was moved into the spacecraft fairing assembly building and into the Encapsulation Hall. Final inspections and preparations were completed for the installation into the fairing, which began on Feb 13. The fairing is the part of the rocket that will contain the spacecraft at the top of the H-IIA rocket. The encapsulation process for the H-IIA is very different than for most U.S. rockets. For U.S. rockets, the fairing is usually in two pieces that close around the payload like a clamshell. To install the GPM Core Observatory into the fairing of the H-IIA rocket, first the Core Observatory and the Payload Attach Fitting (PAF) are set up in scaffolding in the Encapsulation Hall. Then, the fairing is lifted above and lowered onto the fitting. When only a few feet remain above the final position, stanchions support the fairing while technicians go inside to complete the electrical connections. When this is completed, they remove the stanchions and lower the fairing to its final position, where it is bolted in place.   11487   GPM: Countdown to Launch
