Magnetic field

Scientists reproduced the dynamics behind high-energy astrophysical shocks

Now experiments led by researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) in the Princeton Center for Heliophysics have for the first time reproduced the process behind the source of astrophysical shocks.

Jets and winds from galaxy cores appear to share a common cause

Fundamental considerations of the energy supply in large-scale extragalactic radio sources("radio galaxies") led astronomers to predict that these sources should contain jets or beams...

Some humans can sense Earth’s magnetic field, suggests study

Magnetoreception, the perception of the geomagnetic field, is a sensory modality well-established across all major groups of vertebrates and some invertebrates, but its presence...
