Violent thunderstorms on Jupiter may form ‘mushballs’ that fall from the sky | Space

Thunderstorms on Jupiter are so strong that they create ammonia-rich hail known as “mushballs” that may fall from the sky. New observations of Jupiter from NASA’s Juno spacecraft could not only drastically change our understanding of the gas giant, but also of giant planet atmospheres in general, which are largely made of gas and are subject to much higher […]

Mystery Blob Detected Hidden Deep Inside a Supernova –“Not a Pulsar or Black Hole” | The Daily Galaxy

In the fall of 1967, Princeton’s great quantum physicist, John Archibald Wheeler was giving a lecture on pulsars at a conference where he was arguing that we should consider the possibility that the center of a pulsar is a gravitationally completely collapsed object. He remarked that one couldn’t keep saying “gravitationally completely collapsed object” over and over. That we […]
