New research has unveiled previously unseen levels of detail in the distribution of dark matter, reaching down to a scale as small as 30,000 light-years. These observed fluctuations in distribution offer enhanced constraints on the characteristics of dark matter.
Utilizing NASA’s Neil Gehrels Swift Observatory, scientists have made a groundbreaking discovery: a black hole in a distant galaxy that is repeatedly consuming a Sun-like star.
New quantum sensors measuring brain activity have the potential to revolutionize our understanding of how humans respond to sleep, movement, diet, and aging.
Making use of the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), astronomers detect the magnetic field of a galaxy that is so distant that its light has taken over 11 billion years to reach the Earth: one gets to see it when the Universe was only 2.5 billion years old.
Over the past few years, research has been conducted on quantum technologies that exploit the quantum mechanical properties of microscopic entities. Quantum thermodynamics is a notable field in this domain.
Isotopes - atoms of a particular element that have different numbers of neutrons - can be used for a variety of tasks, from tracking climate change to conducting medical research.
Supermassive black holes (SMBHs) are known to exist in the cosmos today. These are black holes with masses greater than a million times that of the Sun.
The existence of all the material around is not stable. Few materials might experience radioactive decay to develop highly stable isotopes.
Fusion is the process of fusing two light atomic nuclei to produce a single heavier one while emitting enormous quantities of energy. Fusion powers the Sun and all stars, making it the universe’s preferred way of creating energy.
James Webb Space Telescope of NASA has started the research of one of the most well-known supernovae, SN 1987A (Supernova 1987A). Since its discovery in February of 1987, SN 1987A has been a focus of intense observations at wavelengths that range from gamma rays to radio for almost 40 years.
