The origin and mechanism of the Sun’s magnetic field still an unsolved mystery using the current model

The origin and mechanism of sunspots, solar flares and heating of the corona to millions of degrees remains a mystery under the current standard solar model. In the past 95 years several theories were proposed, but none could really explain the origin and how the

Research finds Arctic thermokarst lakes are "net climate coolers", contradicts widely-held scientific view

A recently published study in journal Nature, and supported by National Science Foundation (NSF), counters a widely-held scientific view that thawing permafrost uniformly accelerates atmospheric warming. Instead, the study indicates that certain Arctic

Fog of low-energy X-rays over the entire sky puzzle resolved

A decades-old puzzle about a fog of low-energy X-rays observed over the entire sky was recently resolved. Thanks to refurbished detectors first flown on a NASA sounding rocket in the 1970s, astronomers have now confirmed the long-held suspicion that much of this glow st

Supermassive black hole at the center of cosmology

In physical reality there are no black holes. Instead there are intense magnetic field regions that are formed whenever the field strength in plasma becomes much stronger compared with its surroundings. The most intense magnetic field regions are formed at the most
