The most precise distance measurement yet of NGC1052-DF2 — the ultra-diffuse galaxy (UDG) — has clearly confirmed that it lacks dark matter.
Scientists from Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Skoltech) and their collaborators from the United Kingdom, were able to produce a stable, giant vortex in interacting polariton condensates, successfully tackling a familiar challenge in quantized fluid dynamics.
According to a new study performed by researchers from the University College London (UCL) and the University of Oxford, the spin of the galactic bar in the Milky Way galaxy has slowed down by around a quarter since it first formed.
Quantum technologies are based on quantum properties of light, electrons, and atoms. In recent decades, scientists have learned to master these phenomena and exploit them in applications.
A global team of astronomers has found that a star, called VVV-WIT-08, was decreasing in brightness by a factor of 30 so that it almost vanished from the sky.
Quantum coherence is a key ingredient in many fundamental tests and applications of quantum technology including quantum communication, imaging, computing, sensing and metrology.
At the center of nearly every sufficiently giant galaxy, there is a black hole whose highly intense gravitational field impacts just a small region around the core of the galaxy.
Laser-produced high energy density plasmas, akin to those found in stars, nuclear explosions, and the core of giant planets, may be the most extreme state of matter created on Earth.
In a new study, researchers demonstrate an automated, easy-to-operate quantum key distribution system using the fiber network in the city of Padua, Italy.
Astronomers have made a new breakthrough in interpreting the dark and violent sites where stars are born.
