A New FRB Signal Has Buzzed Nearly 2,000 Times in Two Months

The object, named FRB 20201124A, was detected with FAST telescope in China. We still don't know the souce of these signals from space. And this recent discovery just added more to the mystery.  

Two rare super-Mercuries discovered in the same star system

While observing the star system HD 23472 , researchers found three super-Earths and two super-Mercuries. This type last of exoplanet is still very rare—counting these two, there are only eight known super-Mercuries. 

Heat wave on Jupiter, from its aurora

Researchers had discovered a “heat wave” extending across 10 Earth-diameters in the atmosphere of our solar system’s biggest planet, Jupiter. In other words, Jupiter’s atmosphere is hundreds of degrees hotter than previously thought.

World's first cloned arctic wolf is now 100 days old

Bitcoin Mining's Environmental Impact Rivals Meat Production

A study out of New Mexico has found that the environmental harm produced by Bitcoin mining is comparable with that of beef production or oil refining.

Astronomers Witness Light Delayed by Almost 7 Years

Way back in 1979, astronomers discovered that cluster's mass distribution formed a lens that distorted the light. Now EU astronomers have spotted time delaying effect with another distant quasar.

A New Quantum Computing Record

Another record has been broken on the way to fully operational and capable quantum computers: the complete control of a 6-qubit quantum processor in silicon. Researchers are calling it "a major stepping stone" for the technology.

"Dark data" Has A Huge Carbon Footprint

More than half of the digital data firms generate is collected, processed and stored for single-use purposes. Often, it is never re-used. In 2020, digitisation generated 4% of global greenhouse emissions.

System to create bioplastics

A team of scientists has developed a system that uses carbon dioxide, CO2, to produce biodegradable plastics, or bioplastics, that could replace the nondegradable plastics used today. 

Solar harvesting system has potential to generate solar power 24/7

A professor is reporting on a new type of solar energy harvesting system that breaks the efficiency record of all existing technologies. And no less important, it clears the way to use solar power 24/7.
