“70-year-old mystery of how magnetic waves heat the Sun cracked”

“70-year-old mystery of how magnetic waves heat the Sun cracked”

  A view of a sunspot on the solar surface, visible here as a dark collection of plasma with magnetic field strengths similar to those found in modern hospital MRI machines. However, it is the size of the sunspot, which is comparable to that of our own Earth (see the scale Earth depicted in the lower-right corner), that gives these [...]

“Jerry Tennant: Healing is Voltage — The Physics of Emotions | EU2017”

    "Most people have heard of the 'mind/body connection' and are aware that emotions affect the way people act. However, few can describe how that works. What is relatively new is our understanding that emotions are stored in and around the body as magnetic fields. Not only do these magnetic fields cause the biochemical [...]

“Matter falling into a black hole at 30% light speed”

“Matter falling into a black hole at 30% light speed”

    There may be misaligned disks of material rotating around the black hole. Rings of gas may be breaking off and colliding, leaving gas to fall directly towards the black hole at unfathomable speeds. "We’ve known for decades that black holes exist, and that matter sometimes falls into them, and now we have the first [...]

Can’t Stop the Shining

Can’t Stop the Shining

    Solar power is the world’s most promising clean energy solution, but governments must abandon outdated policies for it to succeed. BY VARUN SIVARAM MARCH 1, 2018 “Solar power is in the middle of a breathtaking global surge. In 2017, countries around the world installed nearly 100 gigawatts — fifty Hoover Dams — [...]

“NASA’s SDO Reveals How Magnetic Cage on the Sun Stopped Solar Eruption”

  In this series of images, the magnetic rope, in blue, grows increasingly twisted and unstable. But it never erupts from the Sun's surface: The model demonstrates the rope didn't have enough energy to break through the magnetic cage, in yellow.PHOTO: Tahar Amari et al./Center for Theoretical Physics/École Polytechnique/NASA Goddard/Joy [...]

“Big Science and the Impossibility of Gravitational Waves | Space News”

    In Part 1 of this Thunderbolts Project presentation produced by Jerry Simonson, physicist Wal Thornhill began his analysis of the recent award of the Nobel Prize in Physics to scientists for their contributions to the so-called detection of gravitational waves. While science media has shown exactly zero skepticism of the [...]

  This is an illustration of waves propagating away from a point-like source. Left: Regular wave propagation. Right: Wave propagation on a hyperbolic metasurface.PHOTO: P. Li, CIC nanoGUNE   Researchers have developed a 'hyperbolic metasurface' on which light propagates with completely reshaped [...]

“Better Data for Modeling the Sun’s Influence on Climate”

“Better Data for Modeling the Sun’s Influence on Climate”

  NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory satellite took these images of the Sun at three different wavelengths. The top row shows the Sun on 2 February 2014 during an active phase with several sunspots. The bottom row shows the Sun on 3 March 2018 during a period of low solar activity with no sunspots. The left-hand images were taken in the [...]
