The mystery of Jupiter’s powerful X-ray neuror has finally been solved

Mysterious X-rays from Jupiter’s Northern Lights suggests that the giant planet’s “northern lights” may have unexpected similarities with Earth’s, a new study finds. Auroras, the shining rays, known as northern or southern lights on Earth, seen over the poles of a number of planets across the solar system. These dancing lights are produced when energetic particles from the sun or …

A super new theory to explain superconductivity

A researcher at the University of Tsukuba introduces a new theoretical model for high temperature superconductivity, where electric current can flow with zero resistance, which can lead to extremely efficient energy production and transmission. A scientist from the Division of Quantum Condensed Matter Physics at the University of Tsukuba has formulated a new theory of superconductivity. Based on the calculation …
