Could Ventura and Oxnard in California be vulnerable to the effects of a local earthquake-generated tsunami? Yes, according to computer models used by a team of researchers, led by seismologists at the University of California, Riverside. According to their 3D models, a magnitude 7.7 earthquake on faults located offshore Ventura would result in many parts of the regional coastline being inundated...

This video introduces a new computer simulation exploring the connection between two of the most elusive phenomena in the universe, black holes and dark matter. In the visualization, dark matter particles are gray spheres attached to shaded trails representing their motion. Redder trails indicate particles more strongly affected by the black hole's gravitation and closer to its event horizon (blac...
