Interesting discussion for those interested in weapons crafted from meteoric iron for their fantasy, historical or even sci-fi settings. (Read the linked article, it's not just the xkcd strip)

🛰️NASA’s Juno spacecraft captured this image of swirling clouds over Jupiter’s North Temperate Belt on October 29, 2018, as the spacecraft performed its 16th close flyby of Jupiter. At the time, Juno was about 4,400 miles (7,000 km) from the planet’s cloud tops, at a latitude of approximately 40 degrees north.

A NASA statement described the image:

Appearing in the scene are several bright-white “pop-up” clouds as well as an anticyclonic storm, known as a white oval.

Citizen scientists Gerald Eichstädt and Seán Doran created this color-enhanced image using data from the spacecraft’s JunoCam imager. JunoCam’s raw images are available for the public to peruse and to process into image products here.

Facebook comes up with its own TikTok/Vine clone, now out on iOS and Android in the US - Among other things, Facebook is known as regularly paying homage to its competition by imitating and outright copying essential features: just see how Instagram was turned into a blatant copy of Snapchat. With that in mind, we probably shouldn't criticize Facebook for the totally unoriginal idea behind Lasso, its latest mobile app. In would probably be yet another futile attempt at being relevant with t...

Researchers discover genes that give vegetables their shape - From elongated oblongs to near-perfect spheres, vegetables come in almost every size and shape. But what differentiates a fingerling potato from a russet or a Roma tomato from a beefsteak? Researchers at the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences have recently found the genetic mechanism that controls the shape of our favorite fruits, vegetables and grains.

"For the first time, physicists present a unified theory explaining two characteristic features of frustrated magnets and why they're often seen together.

When physicists send neutrons shooting through a frustrated magnet, the particles spray out the other side in signature patterns. The designs appear because, even at low temperatures, atoms in a frustrated metal oscillate in time with each other. One distinctive pattern, known as a "pinch point," resembles a bow-tie and is widely studied in the world of spin liquids. Pinch points are often accompanied by mysterious crescent patterns called "half moons," but the physics linking the phenomena has never been clarified.

Now, researchers at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (OIST) have revealed that pinch points and half moons are one and the same—simply signatures of the same physics at different energy levels. Their unified theory, published October 12, 2018, as a Physical Review B Rapid Communication, is the first to explain the underlying physics driving the often paired phenomena.

"The theory itself is kind of simple," said Han Yan, a graduate student in the Theory of Quantum Matter Unit at OIST and first author of the study. "From the same theory that gives you the pinch point at lower energy, you can calculate what happens at higher energy—and you get a pair of half moons."

If you zoom in close to a frustrated magnet, each atom making up the material seems to spin erratically. In reality, however, these atoms take part in a beautifully coordinated dance, turning in time with each other so that their magnetic pulls ultimately cancel out. This ballet is difficult to observe directly, so instead, physicists search for telltale clues that the performance is taking place".
