Latest Instability Stories
French researchers develop sophisticated mathematical model to study the behavior of earthly vortices, like hurricanes and ocean currents
Researchers have discovered clues to help give scientists a better understanding of how plasma jets from the sun occur.
Physicists studying new images of clouds of material exploding from the Sun have spotted instabilities forming in that exploding cloud that are similar to those seen in clouds in Earthâ€™s atmosphere.
A new X-ray imaging capability has taken pictures of a critical instability at the heart of Sandia's huge Z accelerator.
Solar Prominence -- Solar prominences are large arch-shaped structures observable in the solar corona. These often have a twist and occasionally become unstable, ejecting plasma and magnetic flux out from the sun. The physics of solar prominence instability is believed to be governed by magnetic forces and magnetic helicity issues. It is thought that instability occurs when a magnetic flux tube becomes excessively twisted. ----- Click here to learn more on this topic from eLibrary:
