A new study employs a method originally developed to help map stars and galaxies to describe how ancient tombs are clustered. The research helps archaeologists studying remote or inaccessible sites.
South Africa’s Vredefort impact structure is the largest on the planet, and researchers have now discovered the first proximal ejecta possibly deriving from the cataclysmic impact.
Magnetized particles in a meteorite suggest strong magnetic fields in the early solar nebula.
Observations reveal a connection between auroral particle precipitation and scintillation, indicating that the ionospheric E-region is a key source region for phase scintillation at auroral latitudes.
Researchers working in Chile’s Atacama Desert have collected thousands of “atacamaites” that suggest a meteorite struck the region roughly 8 million years ago.
Analysis of multiple satellite data has revealed a striking connection between K-H waves on the magnetopause, surface waves in the hot zone near the plasmapause, and auroral undulations.
The young, growing planet PDS 70 c has enough material swirling around it to make at least three Moon-sized moons.
Aside from captivating our senses, geysers have much to tell us about subsurface fluids, climate change effects, and the occurrence and limits of life on Earth and elsewhere in the solar system.
Some exoplanets orbit their stars from pole to pole instead of across the equator. Why do they do that?
