Is our solar system heating up?

The consequences of human activity on our environment has been proven and sadly can be observed on a daily basis. Even the Chinese government is taking action to face the ongoing problematic smog spread all across Chinese Cities. However, recent developments are showing CO2 could not be the main factor behind Climate change. Maybe it could be more related to the Solar activity. As Nassim Haramein explained back in 2005, as the sunspot activity increases so do the radiation levels and temperatures rise.

Toroidal Plasmoid Generation via Extreme Hydrodynamic Shear

One of the four states of matter, a plasma is an ionized gas of electrons, protons and atoms which coexist and move coherently like a fluid. They occur naturally as lightening, stars, the interstellar medium, auroras, the atmospheres of planets etc. In fact, there is little matter in the Universe which does not exist in the plasma state – which is not surprising given the fact that the Universe initially consisted of an ionized hydrogen plasma.

Fireworks coming out from Bose-Einstein Condensates

Scattering is a usual method to probe matter and its interactions. In ultracold atomic gases, this method made possible to investigate quantum many-body systems. Previous experiments on colliding Bose–Einstein condensates have already revealed matter–wave interference, haloes of scattered atoms. And more recently, researchers showed that stimulating an ultracold collective of atoms in Bose–Einstein condensates causes it to emit a burst of matter-wave jets, blowing like fireworks.

A New Study Examines How Consciousness in the Universe is Scale Invariant and Implies an Event Horizon of the Human Brain

A paper recently published in the Journal of NeuroQuantology presents a unitary holofractogramic model that is redefining scientists’ view of the physics of consciousness and the seamless interplay of information dynamics from the most fundamental levels of the universe to the living system and the cosmos as a whole.

Astronomers have found a phoenix star

On 2014 September astronomers discovered iPTF14hls, a supernova classified on 2015 January 8, as a supernova of type II-P. In the case of iPTF14hls, researchers have found a very surprising energetic emission a few hundred days after its terminal explosion. At this moment, it is still unclear what is powering this phenomenon and how a dead star could rise literally from its ashes. The energy source could come from the interaction of the ejecta with previously ejected shells.

New insights in how electrons travel in water

As quantum mechanics endows particles with surprising properties, it enables to explain physical processes like electrolysis. While thermodynamics gives a consistent account of them, independent of any mechanism, quantum mechanics provides a consistent explanation of electron fluxes crossing the interface between a metallic conductor and an aqueous environment. Understanding how electron travel is important in many fields: hydrogen production, environmental scanning tunneling microscopy, scanning electrochemical microscopy and biosensing applications.

Creating more efficient quantum devices using electron’s quantum properties

An important feature of ultra-clean single-walled carbon nanotube channels is that a small gate voltage can tune them from n-type (electron-doped) to p-type (hole-doped) devices. It is then possible to create a quantum transistors with drastically different characteristics under electron or hole doping. The problem is the intrinsic transport properties of these nanotubes are mostly symmetric and to have a functional device it is necessary to create an e-h transport asymmetry. Resolving this problem would allow to create nanotube transistors with a giant e – h transport asymmetry. That will lead to applications in the physics of near molecular size nanoelectromechanical systems, to shrink down qubits devices and to create carbon nanotube THz detectors or gate programmable transistors.

Dark matter particles still undetected after two of the most sensitive experiments to date

The world’s largest dark matter detector, XENON1T, and a secondary detector, PandaX-II, have released reports of the most recent experiments to detect putative dark matter particles—results show a complete absence of any such particles.

Traversable wormhole, a key to quantum teleportation

Traversable wormholes have long been a source of fascination as a method of long distance transportation. This phenomenon has an interesting interpretation in the context of ER=EPR. Such traversable wormholes are really appealing but they would require matter that violates the null energy condition. However, a joint team from Harvard and Princeton has just shown how it is possible with gravitational backreaction and without violating causality.

New insights suggesting a structure for the vacuum

The nature of space-time and surrounding matter objects was and persists to be a one of the most intriguing and most challenging problems. A brilliant theory in physics was combining of electricity and magnetism within the Faraday-Maxwell electromagnetism laws explaining light propagation in space-time and posed new questions concerning the nature of the vacuum. Nonetheless, almost all attempts aiming to unveil the real state of the art of the vacuum problem appeared to be unsuccessful despite new ideas.

Ultrafast nanoelectronics with new plasmon transducers

The future of electronic lays with nano-electronic circuits, photons and plasmons. Nano-electronic circuits provide the ability to control charge transport at the nanoscale. Photonic elements allow data processing and transportation speeds with a capacity exceeding 1000 times (> THz) that of electronic components. However, the relatively large wavelength of light requires optical components to be too large to compete in size with modern day nanoelectronics. This problem is solved by using plasmons and integrating them with nano-electronic circuits resulting in a true hybrid of optics and electronics at the nanoscale. The result is a combination of the small dimensions of nanoelectronics with the fast operating speed of optics via plasmonics.

New sodium battery for a cost-effective power storage

Finding a new energy storage material is a great challenge and sodium is showing great promise. Being one of the two main ingredients in the salt, it is very abundant, non-toxic and cheap. However, it is very difficult to produce a sodium based battery. The problem is, when exposed to air, the metals in a sodium battery’s cathode can be oxidized, decreasing the performance of the battery or even rendering it completely inactive.

Missing matter in the Sun’s interior

Analysis of sound and light transmission from the Sun’s surface using a new 3-dimensional model, as opposed to the conventional 2D models, suggests that the chemical composition of the Sun is far different from what was previously presumed. Namely, there appears to be significantly less amount of heavy elements (elements heavier than hydrogen and helium, what astronomers call metals). The Sun’s missing metals, means that there is a large mass, several billion megatonnes, of material that is unaccounted for. One possibility that has been suggested is that the Sun’s core may be comprised of a significant amount of so-called dark matter—a source of mass that exerts gravitational force but does not interact the same way that ordinary matter does.
