Climate change will raise the sea level in the Gulf of Finland
The Finnish Meteorological Institute has updated its estimates concerning the impact of rising sea levels on the Finnish coast.
Saturn's little wavemaking moon
Captured on January 15, this narrow-angle Cassini image shows an outer portion of Saturn's A ring on the left and the ropy F ring crossing on the right. The thin black line near the A ring's bright edge is ...
Surface structure controls liquid spreading
Researchers at Aalto University have developed a purely geometric surface structure that is able to stop and control the spreading of liquids on different types of surfaces. The structure has an undercut ...
Space experiment sheds light on immune struggles
A lab experiment that rode to space two years ago has offered new clues about why astronauts' immune systems struggle to perform in zero gravity, US military researchers said on Monday.
Neural activity in bats measured in-flight
Animals navigate and orient themselves to survive – to find food and shelter or avoid predators, for example. Research conducted by Dr. Nachum Ulanovsky and research student Michael Yartsev of the Weizmann ...
Researchers measure Brazil nut effect in reduced gravity
Predicting fire activity using terrestrial water storage data
High fire activity periods in the Amazon region can be predicted months in advance on the basis of water storage data, a new study shows.
US-Russian crew blasts off for space station (Update)
A Russian spacecraft carrying a three-man crew blasted off Friday from a launch pad in the steppes of Kazakhstan, for the first time taking a shorter path to the International Space Station.
Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter sees GRAIL's explosive farewell
(Phys.org) —Many spacecraft just fade away, drifting silently through space after their mission is over, but not GRAIL. NASA's twin GRAIL (Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory) spacecraft went out in ...
Physics duo discover 13 new solutions to Newtonian three-body orbit problem
Researchers find it would require 2.4 times less energy to create a black hole than thought
Hyper and micro-gravity affect processes involved in reproduction, brain diseases and cancer, new study shows
University of Montreal researchers found that changes in gravity affect the reproductive process in plants. Gravity modulates traffic on the intracellular "highways" that ensure the growth and functionality ...
Astrobiologists claim meteorite carried space algae
Cassini returns images of battered Saturn Moon
(Phys.org) —Following its last close flyby of Saturn's moon Rhea, NASA's Cassini spacecraft captured these raw, unprocessed images of the battered icy moon. They show an ancient, cratered surface bearing ...
