Solar ‘climate change’ could cause rougher space weather

Recent research shows that the space age has coincided with a period of unusually high solar activity, called a grand maximum. Isotopes in ice sheets and tree rings tell us that this grand solar maximum is one of 24 during the last 9300 years and suggest the high

ATREX - NASA jet stream study - 5 suborbital rockets launched at the same time will light up the night sky of east coast US

Since the high probability of unacceptable weather is preventing a launch attempt on March 19 again, NASA has rescheduled the launch of its five suborbital sounding rockets from the Wallops Facility in Virginia as part of a study of the upper level jet stream to no

Hot flow anomalies - surprising explosions on Venus caused by space weather

A recent study, appearing online in the Journal of Geophysical Research on February 29, 2012, has found clear evidence on Venus for a type of space weather outburst quite common at Earth, called a hot flow anomaly. These anomalies, also known as HFAs, cause a temporary

Artificial hamburger meat successfully grown in vat of bovine fetal cells

I'm not sure which is the more offensive way to create meat. There's the current "factory farm" method where masses of hormone-jacked, antibiotics-injected cows are kept confined in what can only be called bovine concentration camps while they're fed genetically
