Mars, too, has macroweather

A new study by researchers at McGill University and UCL finds that this same three-part pattern applies to atmospheric conditions on Mars. The results, published in Geophysical Research Letters, also show that the sun plays a major role in determining macroweather

Primordial galaxy bursts with starry births

In the early universe, starburst galaxies like AzTEC-3 formed stars at a frenetic pace, fueled by the copious quantities of material they devoured and by merging with other adolescent galaxies. Over billions of years, according to the

Mars spacecraft, including MAVEN, reveal comet flyby effects on Martian atmosphere

Using the observations, scientists were able to make a direct connection between the input of debris from the meteor shower to the subsequent formation of the transient layer of ions – the first time such an event has been observed on any planet, including Earth, said the MAVEN research

Black Holes Come to the Big Screen

The new movie Interstellar explores a longstanding fascination, but UA astrophysicists are using cutting-edge technology to go one better. They're working on how to take pictures of the black hole at the center of the galaxy

A fireball in space reveals the nature of novae

For the first time, scientists have measured the size and structure of a nova’s nuclear blast as it happened — thanks, in part, to a Yale University

CU-Boulder instrument onboard MAVEN sends back first images of Mars

The image shows the planet from an altitude of 36,500 kilometers, or 22,680 miles, in three ultraviolet wavelength bands. Blue shows the ultraviolet light from the sun scattered from atomic hydrogen gas in an extended cloud that goes to

Ultra-compact capacitors for the electronics market

From November 11-14, 2014, Fraunhofer IPMS will present ultra-thin and integrated capacitors with a high capacity and specially tailored features for industrial applications at electronica, the international trade show for components, systems and applications in the electronic sector in

Simpler process to grow germanium nanowires could improve lithium-ion batteries

Researchers have developed what they call a simple, one-step method to grow nanowires of germanium from an aqueous solution. Their process could make it more feasible to use germanium in lithium-ion batteries

Beating battery drain

Stream video on your smartphone, or use its GPS for an hour or two, and you’ll probably see the battery drain significantly. As data rates climb and smartphones adopt more power-hungry features, battery life has become a concern. Now a technology developed by MIT spinout Eta Devices could help a phone’s battery last perhaps twice as long, and help to
