Walkabout the Galaxy
neutrinos; CNO fusion process
Astrophysics and Astronomy | Physics
Deep in the interior of the Sun all the energy that supports life on Earth is created by fusing hydrogen into helium. For the first time, neutrinos produced by the relatively rare CNO fusion process in the Sun have been detected. Elsewhere, we explore a hypothesis that planets like the Earth might get their water via an interplanetary bucket brigade. In addition to all that we'll explore continental drift, lunar drift, and dreams for our next missions - and movies.
Are you looking for a cycle to take you not just around your neighborhood, or even around the World, but for a spin, tilt, wobble, and bobble around the Solar System? Then go ahead and put your old two-wheeler at the back of the garage and come on down to Milankovitch Cycles. We'll fit you out with not one, not two, but three Milankovitch Cycles for the price of one. Your exotrincity cycle will take you for a ride around the Sun on a varying path to let you experience different seasons while your obliquity and procession cycles will keep you spinning, but never the same way twice, unless you want to wait 41,000 years. Specials are also available on oribital, procession, and inclination cycles. Don't just Walkabout, but run on down to Milankovitch Cycles and upgrade your ride. Milankovitch Cycles, the easy way from anywhere to everywhere. (Raleigh Bicycles)
