Scientists have reached a milestone in describing how the northern lights work by way of a process called "magnetic reconnection." The process is best imagined as untangling twisted strands of spaghetti.
Two NASA spacecraft have provided the most comprehensive movie ever of a mysterious process at the heart of all explosions on the sun: magnetic reconnection. Magnetic reconnection happens when magnetic field lines come together, bre... Read Post
With the help of a new method called "dual-electrode photoelectrochemistry," University of Oregon scientists have provided new insight into how solar water-splitting cells work. An important and overlooked parameter, they report, is... Read Post
A University of Iowa researcher wants you to visualize a plate of spaghetti when you think of the northern lights. That's because Jack Scudder, UI professor of physics and astronomy, and his colleagues have reached a milestone in de... Read Post
