  • Stunning image of a supernova remnant processed by a new Australian supercomputer

    Within 24 hours of gaining access to the first stage of Australia’s newest supercomputing system, researchers processed a series of radio telescope observations, including a very detailed image of a supernova remnant. The very high data rates and huge data volumes of next-generation radio telescopes such as ASKAP (Australian Square Kilometer Array Pathfinder) require high-performance […]

  • iRobot deal would give Amazon cards inside millions of homes

    After decades of creating war machines and household cleaning devices, iRobot has agreed to be acquired by Amazon for $1.7 billion, according to a joint statement from the two companies. If the deal goes through, it would give Amazon access to another source of personal data: interior maps of Roomba owners’ homes. iRobot started out […]

  • The James Webb Space Telescope may have already found the oldest galaxy ever seen

    Just a week after its first images were shown to the world, the James Webb Space Telescope may have found a galaxy that existed 13.5 billion years ago, a scientist who analyzed the data said on Wednesday. Known as GLASS-z13, the galaxy dates back 300 million years after the Big Bang, about 100 million years […]

  • Astrophysicists believe they have found the mysterious source of high-energy neutrinos

    Some of the brightest and most energetic objects in the Universe are the mysterious source of high-energy cosmic neutrinos, new research has confirmed. A comprehensive analysis has established a fairly conclusive link between galaxies harboring blazing nuclei known as blazars and these enigmatic particles. It’s a result that provides a truly unexpected solution to a […]

  • Engineers are working to solve a mysterious problem on the Voyager 1 probe

    In May, NASA scientists said the Voyager 1 spacecraft was returning inaccurate data from its attitude control system. The mysterious issue is still ongoing, according to the mission’s engineering team. Now, in order to find a solution, engineers are digging through decades-old textbooks. Voyager 1, along with its twin Voyager 2, was launched in 1977 […]

  • Gold price jumps as Fed’s favorite inflation gauge shows signs of cooling

    (Kitco News) Gold rose and erased all morning losses after the annual core PCE price index in the US rose to 4.7% in May from a consensus forecast of 4.8%. Despite the slight cooling, the pace of underlying inflation in May was still close to 40-year highs. In April, the annual core […]

  • Milky Way’s largest star is slowly dying and astronomers are watching

    Three-dimensional models of astronomical objects can be ridiculously complex. They can range from black holes whose light doesn’t even escape to the literal size of the Universe and everything in between. But not all objects have received the necessary attention to develop a complete model of them, but we can officially add another very complex […]

  • A new study suggests a young Jupiter engulfed many planetesimals

    Jupiter is composed almost entirely of hydrogen and helium. The amounts of each closely match the theoretical amounts in the primordial solar nebula. But it also contains other heavier elements, which astronomers call metals. Even though metals are a small component of Jupiter, their presence and distribution tell astronomers a lot. Jupiter’s metal content and […]

  • The length of a day oscillates every 6 years, and we finally know why

    The way we think about the center of our planet may need a serious update. New evidence suggests that instead of constantly spinning faster than Earth’s rotation, the solid inner core is oscillating – spinning first in one direction relative to the surface far above, then in the other, changing of management every six years.
