WASHINGTON -- A trio of world-renowned researchers will be the plenary speakers for the 2020 Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exhibition (OFC), the world's largest conference and exhibition for optical communications and networking professionals, held 8 - 12 March 2020 at the San Diego Convention Center, San Diego, California, U.S.A. These visionary speakers include Sir David Payne, director of the Optoelectronics Research Center, University of…

NASA finds heavy rainfall along Central Philippine Coast from Tropical Depression...

IMAGE: The GPM core satellite passed over strengthening Tropical Depression Kalmaegi in the Philippine Sea, Northwestern Pacific Ocean on Nov. 13 at 6:16 a.m. EST (1116 UTC) and found the heaviest... view more  Credit: NASA/JAXA/NRL Tropical Depression Kalmaegi continues moving west through the Philippine Sea and toward a landfall in the east central Philippines. NASA provided forecasters with an analysis of rainfall rates occurring in the…

NASA’s Terra satellite sees fire and smoke from devastating bushfires in...

IMAGE: NASA's Terra satellite captured this image of the fires and the smoke pouring off the edge of Australia and into the southern Pacific Ocean on Nov. 13, 2019. view more  Credit: NASA The state of New South Wales (NSW) in south eastern Australia is continuing to experience devastating bushfires due to the dry tinder-like atmosphere in the territory: high winds, dry lightning and continuing heat.…

Black hole mergers: Cooking with gas

Gravitational wave detectors are finding black hole mergers in the universe at the rate of one per week. If these mergers occur in empty space, researchers cannot see associated light that is needed to determine where they happened. However, a new study in The Astrophysical Journal Letters, led by scientists at the American Museum of Natural History and the City University of New York (CUNY),…

NASA finds heavy rain in Tropical Storm Fengshen

IMAGE: GPM passed over Tropical Storm Fengshen on Nov. 12, 2019 at 3:40 a.m. EDT (0840 UTC) and found heavy rainfall in several areas exceeding 1.6 inches (40 mm) per hour.... view more  Credit: NASA/NRL The Global Precipitation Measurement mission or GPM core satellite provided a look at the rainfall occurring within the newly developed Tropical Storm Fengshen. Tropical Depression 26W formed in the Northwestern Pacific…

With Mars methane mystery unsolved, Curiosity serves scientists a new one:...

IMAGE: This is a sunset at the Viking Lander 1 site, 1976. view more  Credit: NASA/JPL For the first time in the history of space exploration, scientists have measured the seasonal changes in the gases that fill the air directly above the surface of Gale Crater on Mars. As a result, they noticed something baffling: oxygen, the gas many Earth creatures use to breathe, behaves in…

Satellite and reanalysis data can substitute field observations over Asian water...

IMAGE: Use satellite and reanalysis data sets as the substitutes to the in situ observations over the Tibetan Plateau. view more  Credit: Yin Zhao The Tibetan Plateau (TP), known as the "Asian water tower" because of its huge storage of glacier, has a profound impact on local and downstream ecosystems. However, it is a challenge to establish and maintain in situ observations there due to the…

Hurricanes have become bigger and more destructive for USA; new study...

A new study by researchers at the Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen, Aslak Grinsted, Peter Ditlevsen and Jens Hesselbjerg shows that hurricanes have become more destructive since 1900, and the worst of them are more than 3 times as frequent now than 100 years ago. A new way of calculating the destruction, compensating for the societal change in wealth, unequivocally shows a climatic increase…

Clemson scientists further refine how quickly the universe is expanding

CLEMSON, South Carolina - Wielding state-of-the-art technologies and techniques, a team of Clemson University astrophysicists has added a novel approach to quantifying one of the most fundamental laws of the universe. In a paper published Friday, Nov. 8, in The Astrophysical Journal, Clemson scientists Marco Ajello, Abhishek Desai, Lea Marcotulli and Dieter Hartmann have collaborated with six other scientists around the world to devise a…

New study suggests ‘Pac-Man-like’ mergers could explain massive, spinning black holes

IMAGE: This is a simulation of an accretion disk surrounding a supermassive black hole. view more  Credit: Scott C. Noble Scientists have reported detecting gravitational waves from 10 black hole mergers to date, but they are still trying to explain the origins of those mergers. The largest merger detected so far seems to have defied previous models because it has a higher spin and mass than…
