Earth’s Magnetic Poles Likely Won’t Flip After All, Scientists Predict

The protective shell of our planet is no longer quite what it used to be. Over the past two centuries, its magnetic force has been dropping, and no one knows why. Meanwhile, a worrying weak spot in the field called the South Atlantic Anomaly blistered above the Atlantic Oceanand has already proven problematic for the …

Swarm Reveals Magnetic Waves Across Earth’s Outer Core

Discovery of a whole new type of magnetic wave sweeping through the Earth’s outer core

Using information from ESA’s Swarm satellite mission, scientists have discovered an entirely new type of magnetic wave that sweeps across the outermost part of the Earth’s outer core every seven years. This fascinating discovery opens a new window on a world that we will never be able to see. This mysterious wave oscillates every seven …

Magnetic resonance imaging shows brain inflammation in vivo for the first time – Neuroscience News

Summary: Neuroimaging technology has allowed researchers to capture the activity of microglia and astrocytes in the brain. The researchers were able to quantify the alterations in the morphology of different cell populations involved in neuroinflammation. Source: CSIC Research carried out in the laboratories led by Dr. Silvia de Santis and Dr. Santiago Canals, both from …

These videos of a space probe flying past the sun are truly out of this world

A spacecraft looping around the Sun made its first close approach – and captured the encounter in glorious detail. The European Space Agency’s (ESA) solar orbiter entered the close encounter, known as perihelion, on March 26, at a distance of about 48 million kilometers (30 million miles), at the inside the orbit of Mercury. At …
