This is a Landslide? on the Moon

   14 Oct 00:00:14  |  Universe Today

Landslides bringing you down? Landslides can be found all across our own planet Earth, on all seven continents plus the ocean floors. Similar large mass movements have been spotted around the Solar System on rocky worlds, including our companion, the Moon. This image from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) shows an example of lunar landslides, …

Do ripples on the surface of the Sun tell us that a flare is coming

   14 Oct 00:00:14  |  Universe Today

Flares from the sun are some of the nastiest things in the solar system. When the sun flares, it belches out intense X-ray radiation (and sometimes even worse). Predicting solar flares is a tricky job, and a new research paper sheds light on a possible new technique: looking for telltale ripples in the surface of …

How to see what?s on the other side of a wormhole without actually traveling through it

   13 Oct 00:00:04  |  Universe Today

Wormholes are incredibly fascinating objects, but also completely hypothetical. We simply don’t know if they can truly exist in our universe. But new theoretical insights are showing how we may be able to detect a wormhole – from a spray of high-energy particles emitted at the moment of its formation. It’s easy to describe a …

Simulation Helps Explain Saturn?s Mysterious Hexagon

   12 Oct 00:00:22  |  Universe Today

A new study of the mysterious hexagon-shaped storm at Saturn?s north pole suggests this phenomenon is actually the result of activity occurring across the entire planet. In a new paper published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, scientists say that the unnatural-looking hurricane occurs when atmospheric flows across Saturn create large and …
