Researchers reproduce plasma loops to help understand solar physics In orbit around Earth is a wide range of satellites that we rely on for everything from television and radio feeds to GPS navigation. Although these spacecraft soar high above storms on Earth, they are still vulnerable to weather–only it's weather from the sun. Large solar flares–or plasma that erupts from the sun's surface–can cause widespread damage, both in space and on Earth, which is why researchers...

Experiment to shed light on high-energy plasma's role in astrophysics, energy production and X-rays Using one of the greatest sources of radiation energy created by man, University of Nevada, Reno researcher and faculty member Roberto Mancini is studying ultra-high temperature and non-equilibrium plasmas to mimic what happens to matter in accretion disks around black holes. Physics department professor and chair Mancini has received a $690,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Energy to...
