Protein CENP-E plays important role during cell division

Cells divide to produce new cells. A protein meshwork called the fibrous corona plays an important role during this process, as it ensures that DNA is evenly distributed over the new daughter cells. In collaboration with ...

Parker makes its closest and fastest solar flyby

The Parker Solar Probe is the little engine that just keeps going and going by the sun. On September 27th, it made its 17th close approach and skimmed just 7.26 million kilometers (4.51 million miles) above the sun's "surface" ...

Small-scale magnetism leads to large-scale solar atmosphere

Thanks to close-up images of the sun obtained during Solar Orbiter's perihelion passage of October 2022, solar physicists have seen how fleeting magnetic fields at the solar surface build up into the solar atmosphere.

An ambitious new technology might be needed to see other Earths

The race is on to discover truly habitable Earth-like worlds. While we are starting to observe the atmospheres of large potentially habitable planets such as Hycean worlds with the telescopes we currently have, the most significant ...

Researchers investigate rotation in solar transition region

The solar transition region, located between the chromosphere and corona, plays an important role in the formation of solar wind and coronal heating mechanism. The solar transition region is not a statically layered structure, ...
