The precise control of the rotational temperature of molecular ions opens up new possibilities for laboratory-based astrochemistry
Scientists from the Heidelberg Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics (MPIK) in cooperation with DESY (Hamburg) at the synchrotron PETRA III have investigated for the first time X-ray absorption of highly charged iron ions.
For the first time, Lawrence Livermore researchers and international collaborators have peered into the makeup of complex airborne particulate matter so small that it can be transported into human lungs -- usually without a trace.
Scientists discover how ice jets on the moon feed Saturn's E ring and cause some slight snowfall to boot.
Researchers in Europe released a new report on Wednesday that suggests the geyser seen on the surface of Saturnâ€™s moon Enceladus could be fed by a salty ocean underneath the surface.
Scientists believe that ice volcanoes observed on Saturnâ€™s moon Enceladus may stem from a sea beneath its surface, which could support theories for the existence of extraplanetary life.
