NASA spacecraft detected the family of sunspots, dark spots that freckle the face of the sun On May 29, 2020, outlining regions of complex magnetic fields, sported the biggest solar flare detected ever since October 2017. The flashes were too low to reach the threshold at which NOAA’s Space Weather Prediction Center provides signals. However, […]

Electrical engineers from the University at Buffalo have developed a gallium oxide-based transistor that can handle more than 8,000 volts. The study revealed how the tiny electronic switch can handle more than 8,000 volts, an extraordinary feat considering it’s about as thin as a sheet of paper. The newly developed transistor could lead to smaller […]

Scientists revealed that the Chicxulub impact crater may have prospered a vast and long-lived hydrothermal system after the catastrophic impact that wiped out dinosaurs 66 million years ago. The Chicxulub impact crater is the best-preserved large impact structure on Earth and has remained an attraction for several impact-related research for decades. Scientists observed that subsurface […]

During earlier days of the universe, when the Milky Way galaxy was a cosmic baby, powerful magnetic fields may have severely crushed its growth. A new study suggests that our galaxy would be considerably larger today, had it not been for the unfathomably powerful, primordial magnetic fields that supported the shape of the universe. Scientists […]
