The police on Tuesday requested formal approval to interrogate Environmental Protection Minister Gila Gamliel for allegedly violating multiple coronavirus-related laws.Only Attorney-General Avichai Mandelblit has the authority to allow a probe of a minister to go forward, and on Monday night a Justice Ministry spokesman said they had not yet received such a request.Although Gamliel had already admitted on Monday to violating limitations on movement during the lockdown and for a person, like her, who tested positive for the virus, the more severe allegations relate to whether she actively misled the Health Ministry in order to further violate quarantine restrictions.The difference in violations is some violations carry only a fine as a penalty whereas others could carry several years in jail for lying to the Health Ministry and active promotion of the virus.Gamliel found herself in hot water after violating coronavirus lockdown restrictions by traveling some 150 km. from her Tel
In a paper published today in Nature Astronomy, researchers report the first ever clear images of nanojets — bright thin lights that travel perpendicular to the magnetic structures in the solar atmosphere, called the corona — in a process that reveals the existence of one of the potential coronal heating candidates: nanoflares.
In pursuit of understanding why the Sun’s atmosphere is so much hotter than the surface, and to help differentiate between a host of theories about what causes this heating, researchers turn to NASA’s Interface Region Imaging Spectrograph (IRIS) mission. IRIS was finely tuned with a high-resolution imager to zoom in on specific hard-to-see events on the Sun.
Nanoflares are small explosions on the Sun — but they are difficult to spot. They are very fast and tiny, meaning they are hard to pick out against the bright surface of the Sun. On April 3, 2014, during what’s
