The first of its kind plasma engine designed to work in the Earth’s atmosphere

A team of researchers from the Institute of Technical Sciences of Wuhan University, China, developed and demonstrated the first of its kind prototype of a microwave plasma accelerator capable of operating in terrestrial atmospheres. And even in its current “laboratory form”, this accelerator is already capable of producing thrust with an efficiency comparable to the […]

CERN scientists consider Higgs boson as a source of dark matter

Scientists have long been calculated that within the visible part of the Universe, there are five times more mysterious dark matter than ordinary matter that you can see and feel. But, despite such an abundance and a large number of experiments conducted in this direction, dark matter has not yet been discovered, and its nature […]

Astronomers have discovered a planet three times superior to Jupiter

Each of the planetary systems has its own “king." In our solar system, this “king” is Jupiter, the gas giant named after one of the most influential gods of the Greek pantheon. The mass of Jupiter is twice the mass of Saturn, and the mass of the Earth is 300 times, and each movement of […]

Astronomers have solved the riddle of an exoplanet that disappeared right before the eyes of the Hubble telescope

You won’t surprise anyone with the fact of the discovery of new exoplanets at present, specialized telescopes, such as Kepler and TESS, have discovered and are discovering them in whole "bundles" in one cycle of research. However, as practice has shown, completely opposite cases can occur in space, such as a planet that has been […]

Astronomers have discovered stars that are invisible under normal conditions.

Astronomers have noticed some oddities in the data collected by the Gaia space telescope during the period from July-August 2016. One of the stars showed a very strange behavior – it faded and disappeared from the field of view of the telescope. A few weeks later, she appeared, gradually regained normal brightness and again began […]

German scientists pushed the boundaries of using quantum entanglement to the scale of an entire city

A team of researchers from Ludwig-Maximilian University of Munich, Germany, has been successful in implementing technology for transmitting quantum information and the phenomenon of quantum entanglement from one stationary quantum storage device to another through a conventional optical telecommunication channel. During the experiment, information contained in the state of an atomic quantum bit was converted […]

Artificial neurons are created that imitate the work of living neurons as efficiently as possible.

An international group of researchers has made a breakthrough, which is the logical conclusion of decades of research and work on the creation of artificial analogues of neurons. The neurons created by these researchers imitate the work of living neurons as accurately as possible, and this development takes us one step closer to the effective […]

Physicists have confirmed the receipt of additional evidence of the existence of the fifth kind of fundamental forces

Everything in our Universe is held together or moves due to four types of fundamental forces – the forces of gravity, electromagnetism, strong and weak nuclear interactions. But physicists have long had suspicions about the existence of the fifth kind of fundamental force, supported by evidence and justified by calculations. And recently, scientists from the […]

Sunburst Arc – a galaxy with 12 images located simultaneously at different points in the night sky

The thin ring of light that you can see in the pictures here is not an artifact left after image processing, or even glare on the lenses of the Hubble space telescope, which made this picture. This is the light distorted by the forces of gravity from a galaxy located 11 billion light-years from Earth. […]
