Milky Way, Struck 100 Million Years Ago, Still Ringing like a Bell

Milky Way, Struck 100 Million Years Ago, Still Ringing like a Bell

  The article "Milky Way struck 100 million years ago, still rings like a bell," posted on June 28, 2012, presents an intriguing image. Ron Theriault, who reviewed the article before we posted it here, had this to say about it: "Until quite recently, the only astronomy I knew focused either on the solar system and nearby stars, [...]

“Breaking the Limits of Classical Physics”

“Breaking the Limits of Classical Physics”

In the quantum optical laboratories at the Niels Bohr Institute, researchers have conducted experiments that show that light breaks with classical physical principles. The studies show that light can have both an electrical and a magnetic field, but not at the same time. That is to say, light has quantum mechanical properties. A staff article [...]

“Electric Moon Jolts the Solar Wind”

“Electric Moon Jolts the Solar Wind”

  An article published on May 31, 2012, at ScienceDaily.com shows that moon's surface electrical fields and local magnetic fields can deflect the solar wind back into space, a scientific reason for why the ancients had such respect for the moon.   Read the article online at sciencedaily.com .   Link submitted [...]

Large Hadron Collider Atom Smasher Collides Particles at Record Energy Levels

  Physicists have started running the world's largest particle accelerator at a new record level of energy and taking the first data from these ultrapowerful collisions. We are making this article available so that you know to keep abreast of related future findings. Read the whole story online at the Christian Science [...]

Huge Sunspot Aimed at Earth

Huge Sunspot Aimed at Earth

  "Ever wondered what the view would be like when looking down the barrel of a stellar gun? Look no further, this is it. "As captured in breathtaking high-definition by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), an erupting active region has rotated into view and is currently facing us, dead-on." For some big pictures of the sun [...]

  Communion on the Moon July 20, 1969 Forty-three years ago two human beings made history by walking on the surface of the moon. But what happened before Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong exited the lunar module is known by very few: Buzz Aldrin took holy communion on the surface of the moon. Some months after his return, he wrote [...]

“Mysterious Objects at the Edge of the Electromagnetic Spectrum”

“Mysterious Objects at the Edge of the Electromagnetic Spectrum”

 "NASA has many telescopes ‘working the wavelengths’ up and down the electromagnetic spectrum. One of them, the Fermi Gamma-Ray Telescope orbiting Earth, has just crossed a new electromagnetic frontier. "‘Fermi is picking up crazy-energetic photons,’ says Dave Thompson, an astrophysicist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. ‘And [...]

“The South Atlantic Anomaly and Charged particles”

“The South Atlantic Anomaly and Charged particles”

"The Earth's magnetosphere is a close-to-spherical magnetic field that surrounds our planet. As a matter of fact, this magnetosphere shields us from the constant bombardment that our globe suffers as a consequence of its to the Sun. It is estimated that the Sun is blowing several radiation particles, in many directions, around 1 billion kilograms [...]

“Second Biggest Flare of the Solar Cycle”

“Second Biggest Flare of the Solar Cycle”

  "The sun erupted with one of the largest solar flares of this solar cycle on March 6, 2012, at 7 PM EST. This flare was categorized as an X5.4, making it the second largest flare—after an X6.9 on August 9, 2011—since the sun’s activity segued into a period of relatively low activity called solar minimum in early 2007." The video [...]
