Chemical dial controls attraction between water-repelling molecules

Fear of water may seem like an irrational hindrance to humans, but on a molecular level, it lends order to the world. Some substances -- lots of …

Big Pic: Simulated Black Hole Collision Shreds The Milky Way [ANIMATED]

Luckily for us, nothing like this is actually happening nearby.<p>Black holes aren't just ultra-massive collapsed stars that trap light with the sheer force of their gravitational waves. They're also very difficult objects to model--especially when they interact with other black holes. This image from …

New Expedition 37 crew members Oleg Kotov, Mike Hopkins and Sergey Ryazanskiy were welcomed aboard the International Space Station Thursday at 12:34 a.m. EDT. They docked to the Poisk mini-research module Wednesday at 10:45 p.m. EDT aboard a Soyuz spacecraft, seen here in this image approaching the space station. They launched just four orbits earlier at 4:58 p.m. from the Baikonur Cosmodrome, Kazakhstan. After the hatches opened the new residents were greeted by Expedition 37 Commander Fyodor Yurchikhin and Flight Engineers Karen Nyberg and Luca Parmitano. Kotov, Hopkins and Ryazanskiy are scheduled for a 5-1/2 month stay in space living and working inside the orbital laboratory. They are due to return home in March 2014 landing in Kazakhstan inside the same Soyuz spacecraft they arrived in. Image Credit

Giant loops of plasma above the Sun's surface are swaying back and forth, spanning distances up to an estimated 100,000 miles. The video clip covers about a day of activity viewed in extreme ultraviolet light. The loops actually are charged particles spiraling along numerous groups of magnetic field lines extending above active regions. Meanwhile, a darker, cooler mass of plasma swirled and twisted above the Sun in the upper left area of the frames. The video was captured Sept. 18-19, 2013 by the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO). SDO was launched in 2010, and is currently studying solar activity and how it causes space weather. Space weather affects our lives on Earth, and even satellites and astronauts out in space! SDO is helping us understand where the sun's energy comes from, what happens inside of the sun, and how energy is stored and released in the sun's atmosphere. By better understanding the sun and how it works, we will be able to better predict space weather events.
