Australian and Canadian researchers have finally observed the magnetic field generated by the Magellanic Bridge. This vast stream of neutral gas connecting two galaxies can help explain just how they were formed and evolved.
An international team of astronomers led by Fabian Walter of the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy in Germany has revealed essential properties of a molecular outflow feature in the nearby starburst galaxy designated NGC253. The findings were presented in a paper published Jan. 18 on the arXiv pre-print repository.
The Netherland's national railway company, NS, has announced that all of its electric passenger trains are now 100 percent powered by wind energy.
NS first announced their target for a wind-powered train fleet back in 2015, but they've hit their target a year earlier than planned - way ahead of their 2018 goal.
Do you stay drier walking or running in the rain? Many of us run, and it seems like common sense, but this question has been debated before. MinutePhysics explains on YouTube the science behind why running is the best strategy if you don't like getting wet.
This probably isn't a mind-blowing revelation—the less time you spend in the rain, the better—but some people argue that when you're walking less of your body...
The analysis by NASA and the NASA-supported National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) at the University of Colorado at Boulder showed the annual minimum extent was 1.70 million square miles (4.41 million square kilometers) on Sept. 11. This year’s minimum is 699,000 square miles (1.81 million square kilometers) lower than the 1981-2010 average.
