A team of scientists has created an "MRI" of the Sun's interior plasma motions, shedding light on how it transfers heat from its deep interior to its surface. The result, which appears in the journal the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, upends our understanding of how heat is transported outwards by the Sun and challenges existing explanations of the formation of sunspots and magnetic field generation. The work was conducted by researchers from NYU's Courant Institute of...

XMM-Newton Captures The Beating Heart Of A Newborn Star
2012-07-04 12:42:28

[ Watch the Video ] redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online ESA's XMM-Newton has helped to reveal the violent behavior of a young Sun-like star spinning at high speed and spewing out super-hot plasma. Along with information from NASA´s Chandra and Japan´s Suzaku, the findings shed new light on one of the most primary issues in astronomy: the birth of stars like our own Sun. Such stars are born from clouds of gas and dust. These fall apart under gravity...

Doppler Techniques Could Help Predict Solar Storms
2012-07-04 04:12:19

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Scientists are using Doppler techniques that may be able to take predicting space weather to a new level and understanding. An international team of researchers have combined Doppler techniques with images and data from a space-based telescope to observe loops of 1,800,000-degree Fahrenheit plasma flowing up from the sun's surface at more than 12 miles per second. These loops arch over the sun, and may be the first signs of trouble...

Space Twisters Key To Solar Atmosphere's Heat
2012-06-28 09:20:11

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online An international team of researchers have discovered enormous tornadoes in space, more than a thousand miles wide, that could quite possibly be heating the surface of the Sun to more than a million degrees centigrade, a finding that has possible implications for clean Earth energy. These super tornadoes -- which are thousands of times larger and immensely more powerful than anything seen on Earth -- twist at speeds beyond 6,000...

Gallium nitride (GaN) is a highly promising material for a wide range of optical and high-power electronic devices, which can be fabricated by dry etching with plasmas. However, the plasma-induced defects and surface residues that remain after such processes tend to degrade the optical and electrical properties of the devices. A team of Japanese researchers has developed and tested a new way to "heal" such defects. The team exposed plasma-damaged GaN to hydrogen (H) radicals at room...

Enceladus Plume Highlights 'Dusty Plasma'
2012-06-04 07:20:05

Recent findings from NASA's Cassini mission reveal that Saturn's geyser moon Enceladus provides a special laboratory for watching unusual behavior of plasma, or hot ionized gas. In these recent findings, some Cassini scientists think they have observed "dusty plasma," a condition theorized but not previously observed on site, near Enceladus. Data from Cassini's fields and particles instruments also show that the usual "heavy" and "light" species of charged particles in normal plasma 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:
