A blast of energetic particles from the sun collided with Earth early Thursday, causing disruptions in all four of the University of Saskatchewan’s SuperDARN radars.
By pinpointing the exact moment when a black hole launched fast- moving material from the region surrounding it, a University of Alberta astronomer has uncovered an important clue for discovering how new galaxies are formed. The interaction of material ejected, or “burped,” from black holes with other gasses in space is fundamental to the creation of
