Solar winds: New research deepens understanding of Earth’s interaction with the solar wind

A team of scientists has reproduced a process that occurs in space to deepen understanding of what happens when the Earth encounters this solar wind. The team used computer simulations to model the movement of a jet of plasma, the charged state of matter composed of electrons and atomic nuclei that makes up all the stars in the sky, including our sun.

Black nitrogen: Researchers discover new high-pressure material and solve a puzzle of the periodic table

In the periodic table of elements there is one golden rule for carbon, oxygen, and other light elements. Under high pressures they have similar structures to heavier elements in the same group of elements. Only nitrogen always seemed unwilling to toe the line. However, high-pressure researchers have actually disproved this special status.
