Scientists cannot explain the radio signal in deep space, what is it?

Scientists cannot explain the radio signal in deep space, what is it?

By Roberto Scucci | Updated 6 minutes ago Rotating neutron stars (known as pulsars) are generally known to emit radio waves at regular intervals, ranging from seconds to milliseconds. As these neutron stars approach the end of their life cycle, they slow down and are no longer called pulsars, but are classified as magnetars. According … Read more

The bizarre ‘relic galaxy’ is missing a key component of the universe, and scientists are baffled

Our picture of cosmic evolution may be challenged by the discovery of a huge galaxy that appears to be devoid of dark matter. Dark matter, which accounts for about 85% of the matter in the universe, appears to be absent from the galaxy NGC 1277, part of the Perseus galaxy cluster. The galaxy, located 240 … Read more

Scientists believe that rogue planets are flying through our universe

rogue planets

Anyone who’s ever played D&D knows that rogues are sneaky, and rogue planets are no exception. According to The Byte, scientists now believe there are trillions of rogue planets—planets without an orbiting star—lurking around the Milky Way right under our noses. “We estimate that our galaxy is home to 20 times more rogues… Keep reading … Read more

A strange signal from deep space has been detected every 22 minutes for over 30 years. Scientists have no idea what’s causing it.

A mysterious object spotted in the cosmos broadcasts radio waves to Earth every 22 minutes. The signals from this type of cosmic object usually slow down over time. But this has been sending signals for more than 30 years, and scientists can’t figure out why. Loading Something is loading. Thank you for signing up! Access … Read more

Scientists develop new class of antibiotics to fight resistant bacteria

Bacteria

Researchers from the University of Zurich and Spexis have reengineered the chemical structure of a natural peptide, tanatin, to develop a new class of antibiotics that can fight resistant bacteria. Synthetic peptides have demonstrated efficacy, safety and resistance to bacterial immunity in tests on mice, offering the potential for a new type of antibiotic that … Read more

Scientists in the race for nuclear time make important progress

Atomic clock. Nuclear physics

Nuclear clocks, which are even more accurate than atomic clocks, could offer scientists new ways to explore the fundamental forces of the universe. An international team, including researchers from LMU, has made significant progress in this direction by accurately characterizing the excitation energy of thorium-229, the element intended to be the timekeeping component in nuclear … Read more

An event that occurs once every 7.5 million years in Antarctica. And it has scientists looking for answers

Physical oceanographer Edward Doddridge looks at the camera with a giant map on the wall behind him.

In short: Antarctic sea ice has usually been able to recover in the winter. But this year, ice levels are at their lowest in recorded history What’s next?Experts say if the sea ice trend continues, it will accelerate global warming This winter has confirmed what scientists had feared: Sea ice around Antarctica is in steep … Read more

Unmasking ancient aromas: Scientists identify the composition of 2000-year-old Roman perfume

Location of the ancient Roman ointment

Researchers from the University of Cordoba have, for the first time, identified the components of a 2,000-year-old Roman perfume discovered in a sealed vessel in Carmona, Spain. Chemical analysis revealed that the perfume, found in the mausoleum of a wealthy family, was based on olive oil and contained patchouli, a scent of Indian origin previously … Read more

Scientists discover existence of elusive superconducting state first predicted in 2017

Superconductor Superconducting technology

Scientists from the University of Groningen and their international partners confirmed the existence of a superconducting state, the FFLO, theoretically predicted in 2017. Their device, which uses a double layer of molybdenum disulphide to control this state, could significantly advance the field of superconducting electronics. In a groundbreaking experiment, researchers from the University of Groningen … Read more
