HITS astrophysicists use new methods to simulate the common-envelope phase of binary stars, discovering dynamic irregularities that may help to explain how supernovae evolve. The results are published in The Astrophysical Journal Letters. The simulation video made by Sebastian Ohlmann visualizes the evolution of the density during a time span of 105 days. density development process in a 105 days...

NASA GSFC solar scientist Holly Gilbert explains a computer model of the sun’s magnetic field. Grasping what drives that magnetic system is crucial for understanding the nature of space throughout the solar system: The sun's invisible magnetic field is responsible for everything from the solar explosions that cause space weather on Earth – such as auroras – to the interplanetary magnetic field and...
