Walkabout the Galaxy
Neutrinos; Earth's core; Chariklo; JWST; Mars rover
Astrophysics and Astronomy | Physics
Neutrinos are slippery little buggers, and a new experiment is tightening the net to pin down their itsy-bitsy mass. Closer to home, the Earth's core is a complicated system with changing rates of rotation. We also take a look at the peculiar rings of a distant cometary body, Chariklo, thanks to a new observation by JWST. Join us for all the space news and Mars rover trivia.
If you've ever cried over a glass of spilled milk, or any drink for that matter, consider upgrading your viscosity. With handy dimensions of area divided by time, choose the viscosity that fits your needs. With running water checking in at only one square millimeter per second, you can go to one large International Airport per second for tar or even larger. Describing the speed your spill drink races across the table to ruin your cell phone, the stiffness of your cookie dough and the evolution of Saturn's rings, choose the viscosity that's right for your life. Found everywhere particles interact with each other, get back in the flow with viscosity. Viscosity, whatever your pleasure, put it first (KY).
