The speed of light is torturously slow, and these 3 simple animations by a scientist at NASA prove it

Light speed is the fastest that any material object can travel through space. That is, of course, barring the existence of theoretical shortcuts in the fabric of space called wormholes (and the ability to go through them without being destroyed).

A new analysis of data gathered by the Apollo missions confirms that tidal stress – the gravitational pull of the moon on the Earth and of the Earth on the moon – is responsible for causing deep moonquakes, the lunar equivalent of earthquakes.

Revealing the black hole at the heart of the galaxy - Including the powerful ALMA into an array of telescopes for the first time, astronomers have found that the emission from the supermassive black hole Sagittarius A* at the center of the galaxy comes from a smaller region than previously thought. This may indicate that a radio jet from Sagittarius A* is pointed almost directly toward us. The paper, led by the Nijmegen Ph.D. student Sara Issaoun, is published in The Astrophysical Journal.

Figuring Outer Space, a classroom resource from Perimeter Institute, takes students on a tour of their home galaxy—the Milky Way. This video highlights a number of its most important features: its many stars, nebulae, and planets, along with its overall scale and explores how the Milky Way has changed over time.

Study shows dopamine plays a role in musical pleasure

An international team of researchers has found evidence of dopamine in the brain playing a role in the pleasure people feel when they listen to music. In their paper published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the group describes experiments they carried out with volunteers who were given a dopamine precursor or antagonist and what they found.

What's faster than a #Samsung SSD 970 EVO? This guy - the SSD 970 EVO Plus of course. Ha! All jokes aside, these new sticks offer much faster writes, now 3.3GB/s versus the previous gen at 2.5GB/s or so...

Solar Storm Warning: A Stream of Solar Wind is Expected to Hit Earth's Magnetic Field

Solar Update, January 22, 2019. A stream of solar wind is heading for Earth, and it should arrive on Jan. 24. A stream of solar wind is heading for Earth, and it should arrive on Jan. 24.

The wind is flowing from a coronal hole (CH) in the sun's atmosphere. G1 (Minor) storm levels are likely on Jan. 24 as the coronal hole high speed stream (CH HSS) moves into a geoeffective position.

The action begins during the late hours of Jan. 23rd when a co-rotating interaction region (CIR) is expected to hit Earth's magnetic field.

CIRs are transition zones between slow- and fast-moving solar wind streams. Solar wind plasma piles up in these regions, producing density gradients and shock waves that do a good job of sparking auroras.

After the CIR arrives, a stream of fast-moving (600 km/s) solar wind will follow. The combined effect could produce G1-class geomagnetic storms and bright Arctic auroras on Jan. 24-25.

Arctic sky watchers should remain alert for auroras.

A solar filament broke free from the Sun and erupted into space (Jan. 21, 2019). Filaments are cooler clouds of gases that are suspended above the Sun by notoriously unstable, magnetic forces. The action was captured in a wavelength of extreme ultraviolet light.

The ESA has signed a 12-month contract with the rocket maker ArianeGroup to study the possibility of a Moon mining mission. According to ArianeGroup, the aim of the mission will be to extract regolith, which is a mixture of clays, minerals, glass fragments, and chemical compounds. The Moon's regolith covers the surface up to a depth of at least 12 feet. Many scientists believe that Moon's regolith may serve as a source of oxygen, water and fuel for astronauts on future Moon missions.

(Illustration totally misleading: this is supposed to be a robotic mission.)
