the spacecraft will be the first to fly directly through the sun's corona. The post NASA launches parker solar probe on historic mission to ‘touch’ the sun appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
The origins of NASA's Parker Solar Probe mission can be traced back to a paper published 60 years ago by astrophysicist Eugene Parker, describing high speed matter emanating from the center of our solar system. Today the spacecraft carrying his name lifted off and is now en route to the Sun, where it will enter its orbit in an attempt to delve into these solar winds and their closely guard

Microscopic organisms were some of the first things to tap into the Sun for energy, so it follows to use them to make better solar cells. Now, researchers at the University of British Columbia (UBC) have developed a new way to build solar cells containing bacteria, which are more efficient than similar systems and can even work on dim, cloudy days...

The Difficulty of Shooting in Direct SunA lot of the times when you’re shooting in direct sun, it’s very harsh on your subject’s face. Many people try not to put themselves in this situation because of it. Sometimes you have no choice, or maybe you like the location a lot so you have to put up with the challenge.Without any equipment, the sun can create harsh shadows and an unflattering look on y
One of the possible pathways to limitless and clean energy can be found in hollow, doughnut-shaped chambers known as tokamak nuclear fusion reactors. A relatively new player on the scene, a UK company called Tokamak Energy, is claiming a new milestone in the area after heating its ST40 device to 15 million degrees Celsius, similar to temperatures found at the center of the Sun...

Continuing his Laws of Light video series, photographer Jay P. Morgan of The Slanted Lens is covering shooting in direct sun. Shooting in direct sun is challenging for a few different reasons, not the least of which is that the light is typically very harsh, which can easily cause unsightly shadows on your subject. How can you get the best results in direct sun? Harsh light is not very flatteri
An international team of astronomers has discovered an asteroid orbiting the Sun at roughly the same distance as Jupiter, that appears to have originated from another solar system. The imaginatively named asteroid 2015 BZ509 could have immigrated to our little pocket of the universe from a neighboring stellar body billions of years ago, at a time when our Sun was still embedded in a coloss is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
