Latest Magnetohydrodynamics Stories
Scientists from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in New York have published new research which they claim definitively refutes existing theories as to how the biomolecules were able to form inside of asteroids.
It is actually the outer edge of the sun that you would find to be scorching, compared to the surface, and one study sought to find out why.
Scientists writing in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) said the magnetic gravity fields of Earth are going through some changes.
To achieve nuclear fusion for practical energy production, scientists often use magnetic fields to confine plasma.
Physicists working in space plasmas have made clever use of the Ulysses spacecraft and the solar minimum to create a massive virtual lab bench to provide a unique test for the science underlying turbulent flows.
Magnetized plasmas occupy a large fraction of our cosmic universe; they exist on our sun, in the earthâ€™s magnetosphere, and in astrophysical plasmas.
Researchers at the University of Warwick have found what could be the signal of ideal wave â€œsurfingâ€ conditions for individual particles within the massive turbulent ocean of the solar wind.
400 years of discussion and weâ€™re still not sure what creates the Earthâ€™s magnetic field, and thus the magnetosphere, despite the importance of the latter as the only buffer between us and deadly solar wind of charged particles (made up of electrons and protons). New research raises question marks about the forces behind the magnetic field and the structure of Earth itself.
Plasma physicists have made an unprecedented measurement in their study of the Earth's magnetic field. Thanks to ESA's Cluster satellites they detected an electric field thought to be a key element in the process of 'magnetic reconnection'.
Applied physicists at the California Institute of Technology have devised a plasma experiment that shows how huge long, thin jets of material shoot out from exotic astrophysical objects such as young stars, black holes, and galactic nuclei.
Hannes Olof GÃ¶sta AlfvÃ©n (May 30, 1908 - April 2, 1995) was a Swedish plasma physicist born in NorrkÃ¶ping, Sweden. AlfvÃ©n received his PhD from the University of Uppsala in 1934. His thesis was titled "Investigations of the Ultra-short Electromagnetic Waves." He was originally trained as an electrical power engineer and later moved on to research and teaching in the fields of plasma physics. AlfvÃ©n made many contributions to plasma physics, including theories describing the...
