This Island in Pacific is the most Disgusting plastic-polluted place on Earth

A brand-new report has actually exposed about the world’s worst plastic contaminated land mass on the Earth. Yes, there is a put on earth that is nearly totally filled with plastic wastes. The location is called Henderson Island, a little landmass located in the center of the Pacific Ocean. Just recently, on the celebration of […]

Dennis Mammana: Moon-Struck Skywatchers Get a Lunar Lift This Week

We’re just mooning around this week. (Dennis Mammana photo / creators.com) The moon shines beautifully in our evening sky this week, just as it does every month. We astronomers know the moon’s patterns quite well, and we often schedule our observing programs around its obscuring light. Whenever I’m invited to an event and I must […]

These diamonds from space formed inside a long-lost planet, scientists say

These diamonds from space formed inside a long-lost planet, scientists say

Ten years ago, an Arizona astronomer spotted an asteroid that was headed straight for Earth. Swiftly he summoned the help of colleagues and casual stargazers, who tracked the space rock as it exploded in the sky, raining shrapnel down on the Nubian desert in Sudan. Students from the University of Khartoum volunteered to search for […]

Optogenetic study shows that male flies find ejaculation pleasurable

Researchers reporting in Current Biology on April 19 show that male fruit flies find sex — and more specifically ejaculation — to be an inherently rewarding experience. The study is the first to show that the rewarding nature of ejaculation is conserved among animals, from flies and mammals. It also adds to evidence that manipulating […]

Good aurora chances despite solar minimum

Good aurora chances despite solar minimum

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) – Most experienced aurora chasers know there is a pattern to the aurora—an eleven year solar cycle. When the solar cycle is its peak, Earth experiences lots of aurora. At its minimum, sky-watchers have fewer chances to see the northern lights. The last maximum was 2013. The sun is heading into its […]

Astronomers Are Looking For Sun's Lost Siblings

Astronomers Are Looking For Sun's Lost Siblings

A group of astronomers have probed more than 340,000 stars in the Milky Way in a quest to find sun’s missing siblings. They believe that ‘DNA’ of these stellar structures could help them identify the stars that are born at the same time and place as sun. Stars are born inside clusters and have chemical […]

Here's How Scientists Bent Diamonds

Here's How Scientists Bent Diamonds

An illustration of the indenter bending a diamond needle. Illustration: Image: Ming Dao (MIT) A team of physicists has figured out how to bend diamonds, according to a new paper. Okay, we’re talking about nano-scale diamond needles here. But it’s an impressive feat, because while diamonds are known for their hardness, these rocks will break […]

Please enable Javascript to watch this video GALVESTON, Texas — Airplanes are pretty fast— but they could get even faster! NASA is preparing for a series of supersonic research flights over the Galveston area that could change the way we fly. “What they are trying to do is here is find a way to travel […]

The search for the sun's lost siblings

The search for the sun's lost siblings

The sun today, April 17, 2018, via NASA Solar Dynamics Observatory. Stars are typically born in star clusters, and our sun likely was, too. The sun’s home cluster would have been pulled apart relatively quickly, as the cluster moved through the space of our Milky Way galaxy. Today, the sun’s sibling stars would be scattered […]
