Imagine seeing the Sun, planets, and a myriad other objects in our Solar System as you have never seen them before -- in invisible radio light! The National Radio Astronomy Observatory released a new Solar System installment of its Milky Way Explorer.

New advances in the study hydrodynamic turbulence in disordered medium

Posted: 26 Sep 2014 05:58 AM PDT

A fluid front slowly invading a disordered medium exhibits all the distinguishing features of an intermittent dynamics, according to a new study. An intermittent dynamics characterises turbulence. This property has recently been observed in numerical simulations in porous media flows. The new study is the first experimental evidence and detailed characterization of intermittency in fluid invasion of confined heterogeneous media.
