Mars Cube One

By sensing and studying its “vital signs” which lie below the surface – its “pulse” (seismology), “temperature” (heat flow), and “reflexes” (precision tracking). During the first few weeks NASA scientists say they will be extra cautious as anything unexpected will trigger a fault. Although considered routine, a fault causes the…

SEEING TITAN WITH INFRARED EYES

These six new infrared images of Saturn’s moon, Titan, just released by NASA represent some of the clearest, most seamless-looking global views of Titan’s surface produced so far. Six new views of Titan were created using 13 years of data acquired by the Visual and Infrared Mapping Spectrometer (VIMS) instrument…

GIANT SWIRLS ON THE SUN

A team of scientists led by the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research and the University of Göttingen has discovered planetary waves of vorticity on and inside the sun that are similar to those that significantly influence weather on earth. Rossby waves are a natural phenomenon in the earth’s atmosphere and oceans that…

QI IS THE KEY

Tai chi is rooted in multiple Asian traditions, including traditional Chinese philosophy and medicine. Its two central concepts are yin and yang (opposing yet complementary forces) and qi (vital  energy) When your “qi” flows freely, you are balanced and healthy. Tai chi promotes the flow of qi. While it is pronounced the same, qi should not be confused with…

HOW PROTEIN MARKERS IN BONES CAN BE USED TO IDENTIFY PEOPLE

In 2016, a team of researchers led by scientists at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory developed a new biological identification method that exploits information encoded in proteins. At the time, they thought it could have multiple applications. Nearly two years later, they turned out to be right. In September 2016, Livermore scientists announced they had…
