Watching fluid flow at nanometer scales: Researchers find that tiny nanowires can lift liquids as effectively as tubes
Imagine if you could drink a glass of water just by inserting a solid wire into it and sucking on it as though it were a soda straw. It turns out that if you were tiny enough, that method would work just fine—and wouldn't ...
New theory points to 'zombie vortices' as key step in star formation
(Phys.org) —A new theory by fluid dynamics experts at the University of California, Berkeley, shows how "zombie vortices" help lead to the birth of a new star.
