The scientist counts the “sad, lonely” end of the universe

This visualization shows a dark brown dwarf that could resemble a black dwarf. (Image credit: NASA / JPL-Caltech) The stars will continue to explode long after the universe is cold and “dead,” a scientist determined to dive through a rabbit hole to find the last supernova that will ever happen. When the universe as we know it “dies,” it will …

Bacterial enzymes have been “abducted” to form complex molecules commonly produced by plants

Credit: CC0 Public Domain Chemists at Scripps Research have effectively created three families of complex oxygen-containing molecules that can normally only be obtained from plants. These molecules, called terpenes, are a potential starting point for new drugs and other high-value products, which is an important development for several industries. In addition, the new approach could allow chemists to compile many …

The enchanting “blue swirl” could change the future of fossil fuels

Fire may be one of humanity’s original innovations, but it still surprises us hundreds of centuries after the first artificial flames. In 2016, scientists from the University of Maryland came across a whole new type of flame while researching the use of swirling fire to clean oil spills in water. At first, the flame began as a large, violent, yellow …

Perseid Meteor Shower 2020: Dates, best time to view and more

One of the most popular meteor showers will soon reveal shooting stars in the night sky! The Perseids peak on the night of August 11-12 can boast up to 75 meteors per hour. What you need to know: What are Perseids? Perseids are dust and debris from Comet Swift-Tuttle, AccuWeather explains. “Perseids are not only numerous, they are beautiful. Most …

As MIT, it has created its own COVID-19 test trailer, which can test up to 1,500 people a day

A team of engineers, architects, healthcare professionals and equipment experts have built a 60-foot trailer that now serves as a major test site for asymptomatic members of the MIT community who need to return to the campus. “It’s really the best example of MIT – innovation from the ground up,” says Brian Schuetz, chief staff at MIT Medical. In this …

The breakthrough of dark matter allows you to explore three of the most popular theories, all at once

Two numerical simulations predicting the distribution of dark matter in a galaxy similar to our Milky Way. The left panel assumed that the dark matter particles moved rapidly in the early universe (warm dark matter), while the right panel assumed that the dark matter particles moved slowly (cold dark matter). The warm dark matter model predicts many smaller clusters of …

Amazing views of Mars orbits – craters, devils and avalanches on the Red Planet

Five images taken with the HiRISE camera aboard NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, launched 15 years ago, on August 12, 2005. Along with a rich source of research images, MRO studies atmospheric temperatures, shakes underground using radar and detects minerals on the planet’s surface.
