UNH to Analyze 'Bellwether' Solar Event Data from European Satellite

DURHAM, N.H. -- When the sun launched a moderate, or M-class, solar flare May 17, 2012, it was still one of the largest eruptions seen since late January when our star began to rouse from an anomalously long quiet period. But the event was not just an additional solar wake-up call; it produced something that has the solar physics community puzzled and scientists from the University of New Hampshire poised to analyze a singular dataset gathered during the event by a European satellite called PAMELA - short for Payload for Antimatter Matter Exploration and Light-nuclei Astrophysics.

Fitch rates Manchester airport revenue refunding bonds A-, outlook negative

The Negative Outlook reflects continued declines in traffic, in part as a result of competition from Boston Logan. Building on enplanement declines of 13.1% and 15.0% in 2009 and 2010 respectively, Manchester's enplanements declined by 4.7% to 1.39 million in FY 2011, and year to date fiscal 2012 numbers continue to show declines of 4.6%. Competition in the New England region remains a concern. Southwest Airlines, which represented approximately 60% of the airport's enplanements in FY 2011, initiated service at Boston Logan in 2009, pressuring service levels and passenger volumes at Manchester ever since. JetBlue recently increased their focus in the Boston market. Further activity by low-cost carriers at Logan may continue to pressure Manchester's operations by driving fares lower at Logan and pulling traffic.
