In a recent scientific advancement, researchers have proposed a method to exploit Schwarzschild black holes as rechargeable energy sources, potentially revolutionizing our understanding and application of astrophysical phenomena in the realm of energy science.
The US Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), in partnership with the international Fermi Large Area Telescope Collaboration, declared the finding of nearly 300 gamma ray pulsars in the publication of their Third Catalog of Gamma Ray Pulsars.
A new kind of "wire" for moving excitons, developed at the University of Michigan, could help enable a new class of devices, perhaps including room temperature quantum computers.
Scientists are investigating the potential production of Dark Matter particles within a stream of standard model particles.
A group of astrophysicists from the University of Vienna led by Núria Miret-Roig discovered that two approaches to estimating a star’s age measure distinct things: Thus, isochronous measurement establishes the star’s birthdate, whereas dynamical monitoring informs when stars in the examined star clusters “leave their nest,” or roughly 5.5 million years later.
An international research team studying magnetars has discovered an underlying law that seems to apply to neutron stars in general.
A high-energy particle descends from space to Earth's surface, its origin and nature shrouded in mystery. While it might resemble a scene from science fiction, this scenario is an actual scientific occurrence supported by the investigations led by Associate Professor Toshihiro Fujii at the Graduate School of Science and Nambu Yoichiro Institute of Theoretical and Experimental Physics at Osaka Metropolitan University.
Elena Hassinger, a distinguished physicist specializing in low-temperature research at the Würzburg-Dresden Cluster of Excellence ct.qmat, has secured a €2.7 million grant from the European Research Council.
The Gothenburg based company ConScience AB has together with partners been funded two grants totaling 10MSEK for developing advanced nanofluidic imaging technology and neuromorphic computing.
Hopfions, magnetic spin structures predicted decades ago, have become a hot and challenging research topic in recent years.
People swing through gates every day as they enter and exit gardens, parks, or subways. Electronics have gates, too, but they operate at high speed to control the flow of information.
Space research, manufacturing and testing facilities across the UK will get a boost thanks to a new fund from the UK Space Agency.
The enormous galaxies crowded with stars can be assumed as star factories, whirling out brilliant balls of gas. In reality, fewer developed dwarf galaxies have larger regions of star factories, with higher rates of star formation.
The UK is aiming to join Portugal and Spain as a member of the Atlantic Constellation and is contributing a new pathfinder satellite designed and built by a UK-based company adding to the innovative Earth and coastal monitoring and data sharing network.
The Milky Way galaxy is part of a significantly larger structure, the local Supercluster structure, which encompasses many enormous galaxy clusters and hundreds of individual galaxies. It is also known as the Supergalactic Plane due to its pancake-like form and size of about a billion light years.
