The spin current, namely the total angular momentum of moving electrons, is a behavior in topological insulators that could not be accounted for until a spin-sensitive method was developed, Li said.
This explains both the high conservation of angular momentum and the isotope mixing, though this is a still a theoretical model and not one we've observed in the real-world to date.
Shifting the horizontal position of the heat sink by only 2-3 km can significantly influence vortex intensity by altering both the angular momentum generation and the buoyancy of the angular momentum-rich air.
