Researchers generalize Fourier’s heat equation, explaining hydrodynamic heat propagation

(National Centre of Competence in Research (NCCR) MARVEL) Researchers have developed a novel set of equations for heat propagation that explain why and how heat propagation can become fluid-like, rather than diffusive. These ‘viscous heat equations’ show how heat conduction is not only governed by thermal conductivity, but also by thermal viscosity. The theory is in striking agreement with pioneering experimental results in graphite published last year and may pave the way for the design of more efficient electronic devices.

Marine heat wave linked with spike in whale entanglements

Climate change is increasing the frequency and severity of marine heat waves — warm water anomalies that disrupt marine ecosystems — and this is creating new challenges for fisheries management and ocean conservation. A new study shows how the record-breaking marine heat wave of 2014 to 2016 caused changes along the US West Coast that led to an unprecedented spike in the numbers of whales that became entangled in fishing gear.

Is there a 2nd planet orbiting Proxima Centauri?

Proxima Centauri, the closest star to our sun, may have a second planet, according to researchers from the National Institute of Astrophysics. If confirmed, it would be an ideal candidate for direct imaging by new upcoming space telescopes.

Study connects marine heat wave with spike in whale entanglements

Kia: 11 New Electric Vehicle Models & 500,000 Annual EV Sales By 2025

Kia and sister company Hyundai are interesting figures in the electric vehicle world. They have often been chosen as favorite EV brands only trailing Tesla. They have historically been ahead of the curve when it comes to EV design and range. This has given many people the impression they’re “more serious about” electric vehicles than other automakers
