Computer simulations reveal new behavior of antiskyrmions in gradually increased electric currents.
A team of astronomers led by George Becker at the University of California, Riverside, has made a surprising discovery: 12.5 billion years ago, the most opaque place in the universe contained relatively little matter.
Scientists at the University of California, Los Angeles present research on a curious cosmic phenomenon known as 'whistlers' -- very low frequency packets of radio waves that race along magnetic field lines. Appearing in the Physics of Plasmas, the study provides new insights into the nature of whistlers and space plasmas and could one day aid in the development of practical plasma technologies with magnetic fields, including spacecraft thrusters that use charged particles as fuel.
A new study led by Tel Aviv University and MIT suggests that some properties of neutron stars may be influenced not only by their multitude of densely packed neutrons, but also by a substantially smaller fraction of protons. The finding may lead to a new understanding of how neutron stars behave.
A team of scientists from the Faculty of Physics and Sternberg State Astronomical Institute, MSU leading an international collaboration with members from Europe, Chile, United States, and Australia discovered a supermassive black hole in the center of the Fornax galaxy. The results of the research were published in Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society journal. The report will be presented at the XXXth General Assembly of the International Astronomical Union that will take place in Vienna on Aug. 20-31, 2018.
Historic space weather may help us understand what's coming next, according to new research by the University of Warwick.
In neutron stars, protons may do the heavy lifting, according to MIT researchers. Their new study suggests that the positively charged particles may have an outsize influence on the properties of neutron stars and other neutron-rich objects.
The U.S. Naval Research Laboratory's unique expertise in sun-viewing telescopes will be an integral part of the historic NASA Parker Solar Probe mission scheduled to launch Aug. 11, 2018 to better understand how the Sun affects our solar system.
An unusual kind of star-planet hybrid atmosphere is emerging from studies of ultrahot planets orbiting close to other stars.
In a new study, astronomers show how gas expelled in the merger of two small galaxies can linger across vast distances for billions of years, where it may eventually feed gas to more massive galaxies to make new stars.
