Explore this week's solar flares with Wolfram|Alpha
At about 6pm CST on March 6, there was a very powerful X 5.4 solar flare. This triggered a coronal mass ejection (CME). Indications were that the CME wasn’t squarely directed at Earth, but that a strong glancing blow to the Earth’s magnetosphere was possible. Here’s the data in Wolfram|Alpha for the flare:
This definitive app for linear algebra—from the world leader in math software—will help you solve complex problems on the fly. The Wolfram Linear Algebra Course Assistant covers a wide variety of topics, including solving an equation or a system of equations, adding or subtracting any two vectors, finding the cross product or dot product of two vectors, and computing linear transformations.
Presidents! They’re just like us! They sometimes have really weird first names.
I made a Millard Fillmore joke on Twitter this morning it got me thinking. Was anyone so inspired by the Compromise of 1850 that they actually named their kid Millard? Did anyone ever lapse in judgement for so long…
Over the two and a half years since we first launched, Wolfram|Alpha has been growing rapidly in content and capabilities. But today’s introduction of Wolfram|Alpha Pro in effect adds a whole new model for interacting with Wolfram|Alpha—and brings all sorts of fundamentally new and remarkable capabilities.
Starting today, everyone has access to Wolfram|Alpha Pro at wolframalpha.com. Unlike the “tourist” version of Wolfram|Alpha, though, you have to log in, and, yes, to get full capabilities there’s a subscription ($4.99/month, or $2.99/month for students). (Right now, you can try it for free with a trial subscription.)
If you teach a STEM subject like math, physics, biology, or chemistry at a community college or primary/secondary school, the Wolfram STEM Program can give you the tools to engage your students and increase their understanding of the concepts you’re teaching… with Mathematica for $49!
