NASA’s Magnetospheric Multiscale Mission Cracks 60-Year Mystery of Fast Magnetic Explosions

[ad_1] Solar flares and coronal mass ejections on the sun are caused by “magnetic reconnection”—when magnetic field lines of opposite directions merge, rejoin, and snap apart, creating explosions that release massive amounts of energy. Credit: NASA Conceptual Image Laboratory In just minutes, a flare on the Sun can release enough energy to power the entire […]

New Insight Into “Blobs” Improves Scientists’ Understanding of a Universal Process

[ad_1] Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) have gained insight into a fundamental process found throughout the universe. Scientists have found that the magnetic fields that run through plasma, a charged state of matter made up of free electrons and atomic nuclei, may influence the joining and violent […]
