Birds use Earth’s magnetic field to migrate, but severe space weather may interfere with navigation and reduce the number of birds in the sky.
When collecting a finite number of paleomagnetic samples, having more sites, each with only one sample, achieves superior results compared to sites with multiple samples.
Fastidious night sky observations from Korean historical texts provide a novel source of evidence for an altered solar cycle during periods of low magnetic activity.
Scientists say now is the time to unlock the secrets of Uranus and suggest a low-cost, low-risk way to do so.
Postmidnight flows appear to be triggered by the same mechanism that drives more frequently observed evening flows.
Data collected by the BepiColombo spacecraft traces the causes of the strange aurora, which course through the planet’s weak magnetosphere.
A new book presents major advances in our understanding of core-mantle interaction and co-evolution, and showcases technological developments improving our insights into deep Earth processes.
Energetic collisions between magnetic fields produce gusty solar wind.
With each flyby, the BepiColombo mission gets another boost of energy for its eventual orbital insertion around Mercury.
Meteorite collectors often use strong magnets for classification, but this approach destroys crucial evidence of processes active in the early solar system.
