Rediscovering Venus to Find Faraway Earths

As the search for Earth-like planets wages on, a team of researchers from the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics may have found a way to speed up the process. The team is developing a new laser-based technology known as the green astro-comb to obtain information about the mass of a distant planet. Using this information, astronomers will be able to determine whether distant exoplanets are

Astronomers see right into heart of exploding star

An international team of astronomers has been able to see into the heart of an exploding star, by combining data from telescopes that are hundreds or even thousands of kilometres apart

NuSTAR Discovers Impossibly Bright Dead Star

Astronomers working with NASA's Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR), led by Caltech's Fiona Harrison, have found a pulsating dead star beaming with the energy of about 10 million suns. The object, previously thought to be a black hole because it is so powerful, is in fact

International collaboration replicates amplification of cosmic magnetic fields

Astrophysicists have established that cosmic turbulence could have amplified magnetic fields to the strengths observed in interstellar space

Smallest Known Galaxy with a Supermassive Black Hole

A University of Utah astronomer and his colleagues discovered that an ultracompact dwarf galaxy harbors a supermassive black hole – the smallest galaxy known to contain such a massive light-sucking object. The finding suggests huge black holes may be more common than previously believed

Turning the Moon into a cosmic ray detector

Scientists from the University of Southampton are to turn the Moon into a giant particle detector to help understand the origin of Ultra-High-Energy cosmic rays - the most energetic particles in the Universe

New Discovery Could Pave the Way for Spin-based Computing

Electricity and magnetism rule our digital world. Semiconductors process electrical information, while magnetic materials enable long-term data storage. A University of Pittsburgh research team has discovered a way to fuse these two distinct properties in

Oxides Discovered by CCNY Team Could Advance Memory Devices

The quest for the ultimate memory device for computing may have just taken an encouraging step forward. Researchers at The City College of New York have discovered new complex oxides that exhibit both magnetic and

Study Sheds New Light on Why Batteries Go Bad

A comprehensive look at how tiny particles in a lithium ion battery electrode behave shows that rapid-charging the battery and using it to do high-power, rapidly draining work may not be as

Physicists 'freeze time' to manipulate spin information in graphene

Researchers from the FOM Foundation and University of Groningen have found a way to preserve spin information for much longer than previously possible. They isolated the spin information from the influence of the outside world in a nanoscale graphene device, in which they can easily manipulate the information with electric fields. This feature makes their device an
