A rock from an asteroid hit the Earth’s atmosphere early Thursday morning at about 126,000 km/h, creating a large fireball over Madrid that could be seen across Spain.
The fireball was recorded as part of the SMART project, an initiative of the Andalusia Astrophysics Institute (IAA-CSIC) that continuously monitors the sky in a bid to record and study the impact of different objects from the solar system on the Earth’s atmosphere.
An analysis of the event carried out by the IAA-CSIC and the lead investigator of the SMART project, Jose María Madiedo, found that the rock entered the atmosphere at around 126,000 km/h over the east of the Madrid region.Read More..
But on the atomic level, we have a poor understanding of how crystals form, particularly nucleation – the very first step in the crystallisation process.
That's partially because it's a dynamic process that happens on such small scales, and partially because it's somewhat random, both of which make it difficult to study.
That's what makes the work of a team of researchers led by chemist Takayuki Nakamuro of the University of Tokyo in Japan so exciting.Read More..

Big rig drivers in either Euro Truck Simulator 2 or American Truck Simulator are being invited to carry virtual deliveries of COVID-19 vaccines, although even this kind of thing can’t go forward without some people complaining that it’s a political statement.

You Me At Six frontman Josh Franceschi has told Sky News "everything is at stake" over the issue of visa-free travel for musicians in Europe - and has called on the government to "prove us all wrong and show they care".
The singer-songwriter spoke out about the issue as the British rock band's seventh studio album, SUCKAPUNCH, claimed the number one spot in the UK album charts.
A massive 85% of the first-week sales were physical copies of the record, the band's second to top the UK charts, and more than half were purchased from independent record stores - something of a boost for the industry while COVID-19 lockdown restrictions are still in place.Read More..

Then Trump spent two months trafficking in unsubstantiated allegations of electoral fraud, feuded with party officials in battleground states, unsuccessfully campaigned for two Republican incumbent senators in Georgia's run-off elections and instigated a crowd of supporters that would turn into a mob that attacked the US Capitol.
He's been impeached (again) by a bipartisan vote in the House of Representatives and could, if convicted in the Senate, be permanently banned from running for public office.
Over his five-year career in politics, Trump has wriggled free from political predicaments that would sink most others.Read More..

This could explain why the helical structure of the magnetic cloud in the CME became more twisted by the time it reached 5.4 astronomical units - rather than less, as might be expected.
The magnetic interaction between the two clouds could degrade the outer layer, leaving behind a more twisted core.
"What clearly emerges from this analysis is that at 5.4 astronomical units the second magnetic cloud is heavily interacting with the first one," the researchers wrote in their paper.Read More..

"Nothing like that has ever been observed in mantises before.".
If the female grasped first, however, males were always killed and devoured.Read More..
'It is rare for males to avoid cannibalism by this form of coercion – physically fighting with females in order to successfully mate – and this is the first evidence of this behaviour in a cannibalistic mantis.
'Sexual conflict in the insect world is not that unusual and usually favours a cautious or tactical approach?
'But the male springbok mantis really does fight to achieve his goal and this study shows that might be his best option in terms of reproductive success.' .Read More..
