A new study on electric discharge behavior under intense gravitational forces shows that its dynamic changes as gravity increases Arc discharges are common in everyday conditions like welding or in lightning storms. But in altered gravity, not as much is known about the behavior of electric discharges. For the first time, Jiří Šperka from Masaryk University, Czech Republic, and his Dutch colleagues studied the behavior of a special type of arc discharge, so-called glide arc, in varying...

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Researchers at Eidgenossische Technische Hochschule Zurich (ETH) have found a way to use sound waves to make objects levitate. The team wrote in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences they were able to make objects like particles and liquid droplets fly in mid-air by letting them ride on acoustic waves. Not only were they able to make the objects levitate, but they also showed they could control the movements of objects....

Experiment Launches with Shuttle Discovery to International Space Station COLLEGE PARK, Md., Feb. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Here on Earth, the process of boiling is used for tasks ranging from cooking and heating to power generation. In space exploration, boiling may also be used for power generation and other applications, but because boiling works differently in a zero-gravity environment, it is difficult to design hardware that will not overheat or cause other problems....

Leatherback turtles are remarkably versatile divers. Routinely diving to depths of several hundred meters, leatherbacks are occasionally known to plunge as deep as 1250m. The animals probably plumb the depths to avoid predators, search for prey and avoid heat in the tropics. However it wasn't clear how these mammoth reptiles regulate their buoyancy as they plunge down. Sabrina Fossette from Swansea University explains that no one knew how the turtles descended so far: do they swim down or...

Scientists said Wednesday they had solved the mystery surrounding the paper nautilus, a brittle and translucent shell that belongs to the rarely-seen species of octopi known as argonauts. For centuries, biologists have pondered about what evolutionary function the female's delicate off-white casing has served, only knowing it is too thin to offer any protection from predators. The most popular theory throughout time was that it had served as a brood chamber to house eggs. But a new study...
