Fire-Breather

Like a dragon breathing fire, a powerful blast of plasma erupts from the Sun in this newly released colourised view of a ‘coronal mass ejection’.
These huge clouds of magnetised plasma are ejected from the Sun’s atmosphere – the corona – and launched into interplanetary space. Millions of tonnes of gas race away from the Sun at several million kilometres per hour.
This image shows an event observed by the SOHO satellite on 4 January 2002, coloured to indicate the intensity of the matter being ejected by the Sun. White represents the greatest intensity, red/orange somewhat less, and blue the least.
An extreme-ultraviolet view is superimposed to show the size and active regions of the Sun that day.
The shaded blue disc surrounding the Sun at the centre of the image deliberately blots out direct sunlight to allow study of the details in the corona.
When ejections like this hit planet Earth, spectacular natural light displays – aurora – can be triggered over the poles. In the most extreme events, they can lead to geomagnetic storms that can result in regional power outages and communications blackouts.

Jupiter’s Irregular Satellites

The planet Jupiter has 67 confirmed moons. This gives it the largest retinue of moons with “reasonably secure” orbits of any planet in the Solar System. In fact, Jupiter and its moons are like a miniature solar system with the inner moons orbiting faster than the others. Eight of Jupiter’s moons are regular satellites, with prograde and nearly circular orbits that are not greatly inclined with respect to Jupiter’s equatorial plane. The remainder of Jupiter’s moons are irregular satellites, whose prograde and retrograde orbits are much farther from Jupiter and have high inclinations and eccentricities. These moons were probably captured by Jupiter from solar orbits. There are 17 recently discovered irregular satellites that have not yet been named.

Physical Chemistry for Biochemists JOURNAL
Day 8-9:

As Preston would say

“Do not let your expectations dictate your reality” as he lectured us on how perception makes the biggest difference in being successful in physical chemistry.

I saw it differently. It’s life. Don’t expect anything. I don’t want my reality to be fashioned by a sad expectation anymore.

Happiness from this point on.

Thank you everyone for keeping up with my physical chemistry journal. There will be more life lessons from my amazing professor.

Keep G<0,
