TwitterEmailFacebookTwitterEmailDespite being the source of all life on Earth and the definitional center of the solar system, the sun is still something of an enigma. How fast does the solar wind blow? How do those particles streaming from the sun s surface actually achieve liftoff? What s going on in the corona, the sun s atmosphere? Well, NASA s Parker Solar Probe is on its way to shed some light on those mysteries. This week the mission s researchers released new results in the journal Nature a tantalizing, preliminary look at our star. Some of the answers are there, along with a close up look at subatomic particle events invisible from Earth. And more answers are coming in 2024, when the Parker Solar Probe enters its official science orbit. So in the plucky probe s honor, here s a journey through some of the existing stellar science. Grab your sunglasses.Medium sized solar flares like this burst of radiation captured by NASA s Solar Dynamic Observatory in 2013 generally don t affect things back on Earth, but they can interfere with GPS satellites and other objects in orbit. It s a small price to pay for beauty; these solar burps are also partially responsible for the atmospheric ionization that causes aurora events at Earth s poles.
The data from the probe, published in the journal Nature, offers clues to long standing mysteries, including why the Sun''s atmosphere, known as the corona, is hundreds of times hotter than its surface, as well as the precise origins of the solar wind.Since its launch in August 2018, Parker Solar Probe has completed three of the 24 planned passes through never before explored parts of the Sun''s atmosphere, using cutting edge scientific instruments to measure the environment around the spacecraft.
Sarah Jessica Parker once said, "If you work hard and are a good person, you deserve to shop at Barneys. " I couldn #39;t agree more. But as early as February, Barneys New York, its assets sold to liquidators, will close its doors, leaving many people in town upset. "I #39;m definitely in mourning. It feels like a death in the family, " says talent manager Joanne Horowitz. "No other store was as hip and trendy. "Since I can remember, I #39;ve been shopping at Barneys in Manhattan and, later, in Beverly Hills, where it opened in 1994. There, I remember running into my old friend from New York, Gene Pressman, the grandson of Barney Pressman, who founded the men ''s store on 17th St. in 1923. Gene was very excited about the new space, especially the spiral staircase that climbs up through its center.
ArsenalBio, a precision immunotherapy company backed by billionaire Sean Parker, launched Thursday with $85 million from a Series A funding round that closed in July. The company plans to use machine learning to discover new gene pathways to fight cancer and then use gene editing technology Crispr to create immune cells that are better at battling solid cancer tumors. amp; Since the company was born in mid 2018, we ve been busy refining our strategy, putting the team in place, amp;lsqb;and amp;rsqb; developing business plans, says Ken Drazan, the founding CEO who was previously the president of cancer detection startup GRAIL. Now felt like the right time to allow the culture of the company to be externalized. amp;
As far back as the first Spider Man, the idea of getting the entire Sinister Six lineup into theaters has been a big, but unsuccessful, dream. We came pretty close in the last phase of Amazing Spider Man movies, but eventually Tom Holland s rebooted Peter Parker seemingly wiped those plans off the map. But now, it looks like we re not as far as we thought from the cinematic Sinister Six we ve always wanted.You can thank Spider Man producer Amy Pascal for this new round of hope, as she took part in the special features of Spider Man: Far From Home s recent home video release. And amid the easter eggs and supplemental materials, the following quote was fished out of Pascal s contributions:
Tom Holland is the reason Sony and Disney came to an agreement about Spider Man continuing to appear in Marvel movies.We all had a little freak out when news broke that Disney and Sony Pictures negotiations had come to a halt, which meant Peter Parker no longer belonged in the Marvel Universe.

Launched in 2018, NASA s Parker Solar Probe will take years to swoop into orbit around the Sun, but once it s there, its main goal is to figure out exactly what drives the solar wind, the constant stream of highly charged particles that are spit out from the openings in the surface. The probe will also study the Sun s magnetic field. Solar weather is important to understand because those particles and blasts of radiation can affect our satellites, causing communication delays or even blackouts.
