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...

Go is an ancient Chinese board game, often viewed as the game computers could never play. Now researchers from Google-owned company DeepMind have proven the naysayers wrong, creating an artificial intelligence - called AlphaGo – which has beaten a professional Go player for the first time. In this Nature Video, we go behind the scenes to learn about the game, the programme and what this means for...

The colors represent salinity, with blue being fresher, and yellow colors are saltier water. As you watch this movie, you will see the salty yellow patch oscillate in and out, with the movement of the tide (on a 12.5 hour cycle). There is also a slower change in the position of the salt and fresh-waters, controlled by the monsoon (on an annual cycle).

Collaborator: Wilfrid Schroeder (Univ. of Maryland) On June 30, 2013, 19 firefighters were killed during the Yarnell Hill fire, when a gust front coming from the northeast blew across the fire, changing its direction, and making it spread rapidly across where they were sheltered. The animation depicts a CAWFE coupled weather-wildland fire model simulation of the Yarnell Hill Fire. The horizontal r...
