Gerard LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online [ Watch the Video: Plasma Simulation Of The Solar Wind And A Near-Earth Asteroid ] Space appears to be an endless vacuum void of sound, but it’s not. Electric activity not visible to the naked eye emerges from asteroids drifting through space, and NASA is now in the process of sending astronauts to an asteroid to explore its electrical environment. Solar winds from the sun travel through space about a million miles per hour and...

Crowdfunding provides a fighting chance at beating the large, government-funded projects in the race for break-even fusion in the next 12 months. (PRWEB) June 10, 2014 NJ scientist Eric Lerner of Lawrenceville Plasma Physics has received word from the Plasma Physics Research Center, that his theoretical work on solving the density problem in fusion power has been validated by new experiments. Attaining higher density is the last remaining barrier in the way of viable commercial fusion...

Tabletop Particle Accelerator Laser Light Does Not Have To Be As Powerful
2014-05-29 05:07:42

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Creating your own tabletop particle accelerator just got a little bit easier, according to scientists from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab), who report that the laser lights used in these miniature units do not have to be as precise as previously believed. When most people think of particle accelerators, things like the Large Hadron Collider that was used in the discovery of the Higgs boson come to mind....

In the Future, Combining Lasers Could Shrink Particle Accelerators from Kilometers to Meters WASHINGTON, May 27, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- It took every inch of the Large Hadron Collider's 17-mile length to accelerate particles to energies high enough to discover the Higgs boson. Now, imagine an accelerator that could do the same thing in, say, the length of a football field. Or less. http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnvar/20130627/DC39790LOGO That is the promise of...

Mars' Atmosphere Loss To Be Measured By NASA's MAVEN Orbiter
2014-05-15 10:47:48

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online When NASA’s Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution (MAVEN) mission arrives at its destination later this year, an instrument on board could help to determine why Mars has slowly lost much of its atmosphere and become the barren planet we see today. After MAVEN enters into an orbit above Mars, its Solar Wind Ion Analyzer (SWIA) will begin sampling the small electrically charged particles in and above the planet’s wispy atmosphere....

Understanding How Sprites Form
2014-05-08 03:55:14

By A'ndrea Elyse Messer, Penn State Atmospheric sprites have been known for nearly a century, but their origins were a mystery. Now, a team of researchers has evidence that sprites form at plasma irregularities and may be useful in remote sensing of the lower ionosphere. "We are trying to understand the origins of this phenomenon," said Victor Pasko, professor of electrical engineering, Penn State. "We would like to know how sprites are initiated and how they develop." Sprites are...

Hannes Olof Gösta Alfvén (May 30, 1908 - April 2, 1995) was a Swedish plasma physicist born in Norrköping, Sweden. Alfvén 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. Alfvén made many contributions to plasma physics, including theories describing the...

Heliopause -- The heliopause is the boundary where our Sun's solar wind is stopped by the interstellar medium. The solar wind blows a "bubble" in the interstellar medium (the rareified hydrogen and helium gas that permeates the galaxy). The point where the solar wind's strength is no longer great enough to push back the interstellar medium is known as the heliopause, and is often considered to be the outer "border" of the solar system. The distance to the heliopause is not precisely...

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:
