A solar storm has such power that it can destroy many electrical equipments on earth and can cause an internet blackout. Solar storm impact can create severe problems on earth like Grid failure. An Indian researcher Sangeetha Abdu Jythin said that in 2021 a massive solar storm is likely coming and the internet, which is… Continue reading Internet Blackout Due To A Solar Storm
These days if you have got even the vaguest interest in the automotive world it’s impossible to ignore the fact that the pace of electric vehicle integration is accelerating rapidly. And it’s not just Tesla either. Just about all the major car manufacturers, plus several independent companies now have one or more electric vehicle options… Continue reading Is Battery Swapping Is The Way Ahead?
New findings published this week in Physical Review Letters suggest that carbon, oxygen, and hydrogen cosmic rays travel through the galaxy toward Earth in a similar way, but, surprisingly, that iron arrives at Earth differently. Learning more about how cosmic rays move through the galaxy helps address a fundamental, lingering question in astrophysics: How is… Continue reading New research adds a wrinkle to our understanding of the origins of matter in the Milky Way
The long relationships between stars and the planets around them—including the Sun and the Earth—maybe even more complex than previously thought. This is one conclusion of a new study involving thousands of stars using NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory. By conducting the largest survey ever of star-forming regions in X-rays, a team of researchers has helped… Continue reading The give and take of mega-flares from stars
The precipitous drop in energy use is unparalleled back to the Great Depression of the 1930s. But not all energy sources are suffering equally. Efforts to shift toward renewable energy could be hastened, as fossil fuels, particularly coal and oil, have borne the brunt of the decline. Use of renewable energy meanwhile has risen, thanks to new projects coming online, and the low cost of turning wind turbines or harvesting sunlight.
Researchers have found a way to convert heat energy into electricity with a nontoxic material. The material is mostly iron, which is extremely cheap given its relative abundance.
