Gravitational waves could shed light on dark matter

IMAGE: Snapshots of the 120 million particle simulation of two merging dwarf galaxies, which each contain a blackhole, between 6 and 7.5 billion years view more  Credit: UZH The Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA) will enable astrophysicists to observe gravitational waves emitted by black holes as they collide with or capture other black holes. LISA will consist of three spacecraft orbiting the sun in a constant…

Twelfth impact structure discovered in Central Finland

The crater has a diameter of 2.6 km and it is covered by the Lake Summasjärvi (Summanen), about 9 km south-east of the nearest city, Saarijärvi, and 275 km north of Helsinki. The age of the impact event and the type of the meteorite causing the crater, are still unknown. The discovery is based on earlier geophysical studies of the area by Geological Survey of…

Chrome OS is about to borrow another feature from Android

Chrome OS and Android are closer than ever before – many Chromebooks, including the Google Pixelbook, can run Android apps just as well as a phone or tablet, and it looks like the desktop OS is about to borrow another feature from its mobile sibling. Chrome Story spotted that notification badges are on their way…

Hurricane Oscar on satellite imagery: A one-eyed little monster with a...

IMAGE: NASA's Aqua satellite showed cloud top temperatures in strongest storms around Oscar's eye were as cold as or colder than minus 70 degrees (red) Fahrenheit (minus 56.6 degrees Celsius). A... view more  Credit: Credit: NASA/NRL Of course, tropical cyclones have one eye and with Halloween on the horizon, false-colored infrared imagery from NASA's Aqua satellite brought out that eye in this small tropical monster with…

NASA measures Tropical Cyclone Nora’s flooding rains in Queensland

NASA used satellite data to calculate the heavy rainfall created by Tropical Cyclone Nora as it came ashore in northwestern Queensland on March 24, 2018. Nora reached peak intensity of 95 knots (109 mph) was reached when it was moving through the central northern Gulf of Carpentaria. Winds had decreased slightly to 90 knots (104 mph) by landfall. The Australian Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) reported…

NASA sees ex-Tropical Cyclone Beryl’s remnants fighting for survival

IMAGE: NASA's Terra satellite passed over Beryl's remnants on July 11 at 11:50 a.m. EDT (1550 UTC). Beryl was still affecting the part of the Bahamas, but continued to move to... view more  Credit: Credits: NASA/NRL Former Tropical Storm Beryl doesn't seem to want to dissipate into hurricane history. Visible data from NASA's Terra satellite captured the the remnants of Beryl lingering north of the Bahamas.…

Spacetime — a creation of well-known actors?

Most physicists believe that the structure of spacetime is formed in an unknown way in the vicinity of the Planck scale, i.e. at distances close to one trillionth of a trillionth of a metre. However, careful considerations undermine the unambiguity of this prediction. There are quite a few arguments in favour of the fact that the emergence of spacetime may occur as a result of…

Investigation seeks to create self-assembling materials

IMAGE: Researchers are manipulating temperature to control the assembly and interactions of the particles. Suspended in a fluid medium, these particles are designed to bind to one another in specific ways... view more  Credit: NASA/iGoal Animation As we travel farther into space, clever solutions to problems like engine part malfunctions and other possible mishaps will be a vital part of the planning process. 3D printing, or…

NASA examined Tropical Cyclone Bud’s rains in the US southwest

IMAGE: IMERG data generated during the period from June 9 to 18, 2018. IMERG showed Bud produced the heaviest rainfall over the open waters of the eastern Pacific where over 512... view more  Credit: Credits: NASA/JAXA, Hal Pierce Beneficial rainfall from hurricane Bud's remnants has spread into the U.S. Desert Southwest after making landfall in western Mexico and moving north. NASA added up the rainfall using…
