Coronal Rain on the Sun

Does it rain on the Sun? Yes, although what falls is not water but extremely hot plasma. An example occurred in mid-July 2012 after an eruption on the Sun that produced both a Coronal Mass Ejection and a moderate solar flare. What was more unusual, however, was what happened next. Plasma in the nearby solar corona was imaged cooling and falling back, a phenomenon known as coronal rain. Because they are electrically charged, electrons, protons, and ions in the rain were gracefully channeled along existing magnetic loops near the Sun's surface, making the scene appear as a surreal three-dimensional sourceless waterfall. The resulting surprisingly-serene spectacle is shown in ultraviolet light and highlights matter glowing at a temperature of about 50,000 Kelvin. Each second in the featured time lapse video takes about 6 minutes in real time, so that the entire coronal rain sequence lasted about 10 hours. Recent observations have confirmed that that coronal rain can also occur in smaller loops for as long as 30 hours.

Mayo researchers and several collaborators, have shown that a small molecule drug can counter age-related-NAD+ decline and restore healthy function to the mice. Much more research is needed but the findings, published in Cell Metabolism, demonstrate a possible approach that might be taken one day to control aging effects and other unmet needs in patients. https://mayocl.in/2s16SRN

Aw, damn it. Apollo 12 astronaut Alan Bean has left this Earth for the last time. I met him once, when he signed a book of his paintings I'd bought, and he was nice to me.

Andromeda Galaxy Was Formed In 'Recent' Colossal Crash Between Two Star Systems

The Milky Way's neighbouring galaxy, Andromeda, was formed in a colossal crash between two smaller star systems no more than three billion years ago when Earth already existed, researchers said Wednesday.

Calculating the birth date of the galaxy has been a major challenge for astrophysicists given the vast age gap between the different stars it is made up of.

For the latest study, French and Chinese researchers led by Paris Observatory astronomer Francois Hammer used "the most powerful available computers in France" to crunch about a terabyte of data—the equivalent of two million 500-kilobyte photos.

This allowed them to zoom in on "the physical mechanisms of the Andromeda formation, so lifting the veil on its origin," the observatory said in a statement.

The results were published in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.

Previous research had noted one major difference between our own galaxy and Andromeda—long considered twin clusters, the team pointed out.

In Andromeda, certain stars orbit erratically while in the Milky Way, all stars observe a simple rotation around the galaxy's centre.

Why?

The star agitation was due to the galaxy's "recent" formation, the team said.

Senate aide's backchannel with 'Dracula' helped free Utah man in Venezuela

Although Sen. Bob Corker sealed the deal in a few tense-filled hours in Venezuela's collapsing, crime-filled capital, the push to secure Holt's release began months earlier by Corker's top Latin American policy aide, Caleb McCarry, who both Corker and Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, credited with leading the painstaking, behind-the-scenes negotiations.
