As stars form, magnetic fields influence regions big and small

Academics / General Science : ScienceDaily: Science Society

Stars form when gravity pulls together material within giant clouds of gas and dust. But gravity isn't the only force at work. Both turbulence and magnetic fields battle gravity, either by stirring things up or by channeling and res...

Solar Dynamics Observatory helps measure magnetic fields on the sun's surface

Academics / General Science : ScienceDaily: Science Society

A subset of data that helps map out the sun's magnetic fields was recently released from the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO). Observations that measure the strength and direction of magnetic fields on the solar surface -- known as ...

Sun's Magnetic Field May Impact Weather and Climate: Sun Cycle Can Predict Rainfall Fluctuations

Academics / General Science : ScienceDaily: Science Society

The sun’s magnetic field may have a significant impact on weather and climatic parameters in Australia and other countries in the northern and southern hemispheres. Droughts are related to the solar magnetic phases and not the green...

Researchers explain magnetic field misbehavior in solar flares

Academics / General Science : Science Codex

When a solar flare filled with charged particles erupts from the sun, its magnetic fields sometime break a widely accepted rule of physics. The flux-freezing theorem dictates that the magnetic lines of force should flow away in lock...

A new view of the solar system: Astrophysical jets driven by the sun

Academics / General Science : ScienceDaily: Science Society

New research suggests that the sun's magnetic field controls the large-scale shape of the heliosphere much more than expected. The new model shows that the magnetic field squeezes the solar wind along the sun's north-south axis, pro...
