All the information needed for cellular structure, replication, and metabolism is stored in each cell’s deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). DNA consists of long chains of chemical building blocks called nucleotides and looks somewhat like a spiral staircase. Theoretically, the DNA could wind either to the right or the left

The Recurrent Nova Spiral We've all heard of supernovae, but what are "recurrent novae"? In the case of the binary star system RS Ophiuchi, a small but dense white dwarf star orbits with a large, puffy red giant that is shedding huge quantities of matter. This matter is blasted into space in the form of a strong stellar wind, forming a spiral. Interestingly, in this star system, the white dwarf captures some of the gas from its companion star, gradually accumulating it.

Galactic Winds from Supermassive Black Holes Found Shaping Structure of the Universe June 20, 2014 The supermassive black hole at the center of the spiral galaxy NGC 4151 has created a structure that astronomers call the "Eye of Sauron,"

Ancient Peruvian Mystery Solved From Space -- "Puquios" are corkscrew-shaped tunnels which funneled wind into a series of underground canals, forcing water to places in the arid region where it was needed. "The puquios were the most ambitious hydraulic project in the Nasca area and made water available for the whole year, not only for agriculture and irrigation but also for domestic needs," she told the BBC. "Exploiting an inexhaustible water supply throughout the year...

The "halo cloud" was just an optical illusion caused by sunlight hitting a cloud at just the right angle. The cloud's round shape is likely what is known as a hole-punch cloud. These clouds occur within cirrostratus clouds, which are often composed of ice crystals and drops of water that are below freezing temperature but still in liquid form. When cirrostratus clouds are disturbed by planes or strong winds, the droplets can freeze instantly or evaporate, the latter of which will form the…
