Supernova 1993 J exploded in the nearby spiral galaxy M81. Its initial spectrum contained hydrogen lines and therefore it was classified as a Type II supernova. However, subsequent disappearance of hydrogen lines and appearance of helium lines made it similar to a type Ib supernova. Radio emission was detected from SN 1993 J shortly after the first peak in optical brightness. In this paper we present a model for the observed radio radiation that involves the interaction of a collisionless shock front generated by the supernova ejecta and a stellar wind produced by the progenitor supergiant. We discuss electron acceleration, magnetic field generation and interpret an observed break in the radio spectrum. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

We take into account...

    The Martian electron foreshock position and shape have been revealed using electron flux data obtained by the Electron Reflectometer (ER) experiment on board Mars Global Surveyor, in the time period between days 87 and 118 of 1998. From the electron flux measurements, 90 inbound and outbound...

    We update two kinds of results obtained with the SWAN instrument on board SOHO. First, we use H cell data recorded in 2001 and derive the H flow direction in the same way the study was done at solar minimum. We again compare with the Helium flow direction and doing so correct for the coordinate...
