Solar System Simulation Reveals Planetary Mystery

When we look at the Solar System, what clues show us how it formed? We can see pieces of its formation in asteroids, comets and other small bodies that cluster on the fringes of our neighborhood (and sometimes, fly closer to Earth.)Are the orbits and ... [Published Space Daily - 19 hours ago]

Awaiting New Results on Pluto's Atmosphere

What is Pluto's atmosphere like? It seems like I've been wondering about that for decades! We've known so little for so long about Pluto's atmosphere - other than it's low-pressure, made mostly of molecular nitrogen (with a little methane and carbon monoxide ...

Phosphorus a promising semiconductor

Defects damage the ideal properties of many two-dimensional materials, like carbon-based graphene. Phosphorus just shrugs. That makes it a promising candidate for nano-electronic applications that require stable properties, according to new research by ... [Published Space Daily - Sep 14 2014]

Quotes

"It was surprising to see that enough energy was left after the round-trip" said Goodfellow
"There's a lot of discussion over the philosophy of how to approach this, whether you look for the Solar System as the most likely outcome, or whether you should look for conditions that can produce the Solar System. Currently, there's no configuration that has been proposed that forms the Solar System most of the time."
"Nobody has really looked at electric fields on mineral surfaces," Saitta said. "My feeling is that there's probably something to explore there."
"We wanted to see what new, emergent properties might come out when you put these two ingredients together to create a 'buckydiamondoid,'" said Hari Manoharan of the Stanford Institute for Materials and Energy Sciences (SIMES) at the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Labo...
