WASHINGTON - Images from NASA-funded telescopes aboard a Japanese satellite have shed new light about the sun's magnetic field and the origins of solar wind, which disrupts power grids, satellites and communications on Earth. To view images about these findings and learn more about Hinode, visit: http://www.nasa.gov/solar-b Data from the Hinode satellite shows that magnetic waves play a critical role in driving the solar wind into space. The solar wind is a stream of electrically ... [full story]

Sci­en­tists are shed­ding light on what Charles Dar­win called an “abom­inable mys­tery”: how and when flow­ers evolved.In two pa­pers to be pub­lished next week, re­search­ers re­port that two of the larg­est groups of flow­er­ing plants are more closely re­lat­ed to each oth­er - than any of the oth­er ma­jor lin­eages are. These are the mono­cots, which in­clude grasses and their rel­a­tives, and the eu­di­cots, which in­clude sunflow­ers and toma­toes. New studies indicate the two ... [full story]

Re­search­ers say they’ve solved a great mys­tery of the flu: why it spreads mainly in win­ter. The an­swer, they re­port, is that the vi­rus is more stable and re­mains air­borne long­er in the cold, dry air that pre­vails in the sea­son. A typ­i­cal flu vi­rus is shown "s­liced" in half in this di­a­gram to show the in­sides. It con­tains genes for mak­ing cop­ies of it­self on the in­side, and "spikes" that help it at­tach to ...

A bit of buck­wheat hon­ey beat the lead­ing over-the-coun­ter chil­dren’s cough rem­edy in re­liev­ing kids’ cough and as­so­ci­at­ed sleep trou­bles, a study has found. Courtesy U.K. Honey Foundation But the re­search—though pub­lished in a re­spected med­i­cal jour­nal—was funded by the U.S. hon­ey in­dus­try. Its au­thors rec­om­mend­ed fur­ther stud­ies to con­firm the re­sults, while not­ing that safe­ty and ef­fi­cacy ques­tions have aris­en around over-the-coun­ter kids’ cough med­i­cines. “Cough is the rea­son for nearly three per­cent of all ...

A newly un­veiled “di­nosaur mum­my” is one of the best-pre­served of the an­cient rep­tiles found to da­te, ac­cord­ing to re­searchers—who say this one may have had stripes and the abil­ity to out­run fear­some T. rex.

Think­ing and us­ing an In­ter­net search en­gine might seem to be two very dif­fer­ent ac­ti­vi­ties. But a study sug­gests they draw on si­m­i­lar prin­ci­ples.When you type words in­to the pop­u­lar Goo­gle search en­gine, it re­turns a list of web­pages con­tain­ing those words. The list is­n’t or­dered any old way: it’s or­dered based on how “im­por­tant” Goo­gle deems the pages to be. Goo­gle meas­ures a page’s “im­por­tance” us­ing a for­mu­la based on pop­u­lar­ity. It takes in­to ... [full story]
