New devices may have the ability to generate the high-temperature conditions needed to create plasma and initiate fusion, offering a pathway to fusion power.
KSTAR, which aims to bring nuclear fusion down to Earth to meet humanity's clean energy needs, confined super-hot plasma for a record 30 seconds.
Biotech startups are trying to hack the process of aging and, in the process, stave off the most devastating diseases
Howard Koh, who was assistant secretary for health under President Barack Obama, told Newsweek public trust needs to be at the "highest possible standard" for any future COVID-19 vaccine.
Plasma to treat COVID-19 is in high demand, but one Florida man's donation was refused because of his sexuality, he says.
The actor is donating blood and plasma to help develop a coronavirus vaccine (or "Hank-ccine"), and he wrote that it's really easy.
The concept of "convalescent plasma" originated in the early 20th century and has been used to treat outbreaks of measles and mumps.
It is hoped the nuclear fusion device will help scientists overcome a key problem in harnessing plasma inside tokamaks.
Studying the the pressure at the edge of the solar system can help us to better understand the influence of the sun on interstellar space.
These plasma swirls appear to generate short-lived Alfvén waves—the "holy grail in plasma-astrophysics."
The jets were recorded coming from sunspots—temporary regions on the Sun with reduced surface temperatures.
Plasma—which reaches temperatures of hundreds of millions of degrees—is unstable, making it difficult to control.
Rather than wasting plastics, cold plasma pyrolysis can be used to recover valuable materials, which can be sent directly back into industry.
Being able to control plasma that is hotter than the Sun is notoriously difficult.
The incredible discovery will help astronomers unlock the secrets of the universe's very first galaxies.
The experiment created an exotic form of matter that cannot be found naturally on Earth.
The weapon sounds like a ghostly radio.
While scientists had suspected plasma sheets were unstable, no one had ever managed to characterize that instability until now.
It's like lightning in a bottle—without the bottle.
