The Annual Water Cycle Of Mars Atmosphere

Water Cycle Of martian atmosphere

Scientists build a consistent, accurate numeral model of the yearly water cycle on Mars.  They’ve included all minor parameters that affect Mars hydrological circulation.  They’ve also measured the atmospheric distribution and density of clouds formed by tiny ice crystals. Water on Mars was detected more than 50 years ago. Later, it was scrutinized by several space missions, ...

Water-Repellant Surface Can Boil Water Effectively While Staying Cool

Hydrophobic or Water-Repellant Surface Can Boil Water

Researchers discover a method that allows water-repelling surfaces to boil water effectively under certain conditions. It makes these surfaces stay cooler than water-attracting surfaces. Hydrophobic surfaces can be used to cool high power electronics and nuclear reactors. Many industrial applications like high-density cooling, water distillation and power generation depend on efficient heat transfer processes that involve ...

What’s The Relation Between Periodic Table and Superconductivity?

relation betweenPeriodic table and superconductivity

Researchers have found a new high-temperature superconductive material – actinium hydrides.  They also created a method to measure hydrides superconductivity using the periodic table.  Superconductivity is the capability of specific material to conduct electric current with almost zero resistance. The material needs to be at extremely low temperature to behave as a superconductor. Some materials have ...

Neutron Stars Can Cool By The Direct Urca Process

The direct Urca process to cool Neutron Stars

Researchers observed a neutron star of binary system MXB 1659-29.  They found an evidence of the fastest neutrino-emission phenomena, known as the direct Urca process, through which a neutron star cools. They concluded that the direct Urca process occurs in approximately 1 percent of the stellar core.  Neutron stars are the smallest and densest stars, formed in ...
