Artificial intelligence to reveal climate-change tipping points

Researchers are developing artificial intelligence that could assess climate change tipping points. The deep learning algorithm could act as an early warning system against runaway climate change.

12-billion-year-old mystery about galaxies solved

New research has just answered one of the fundamental questions about our universe: Why did some of the oldest, most massive galaxies go quiescent early in their formation? The answer, we now know, is because they ran out of cold gas.

We may have already detected dark energy

About a year ago, the XENON1T experiment reported an unexpected signal, or excess, over the expected background. This signal could be attributable to dark energy.

Perseverance has Detected Over 300 Dust Devils and Vortices on Mars

Other rovers have also experience dust devils, but Jezero crater, Perseverance’s landing site, seems to have a high occurrence of dust devils.

Something big Just hit Jupiter

The impact on Jupiter was reported by both amateur and professional astronomers. The object’s diameter is estimated at 20 meters and it is believed to be the remnant of a larger comet or asteroid.

Holograms You Can Touch

A research group have now developed a system of holograms of people using “aerohaptics”, creating feelings of touch with jets of air. In time you could meet a virtual avatar of a colleague and really feel their handshake.

SpaceX capsule returns four civilians from orbit

Four people returned to Earth from a three-day extraterrestrial excursion aboard a SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule on Saturday evening. It was the first-ever flight to Earth's orbit flown entirely by tourists.

New class of habitable exoplanets

The researchers have identified a new class of habitable planets, dubbed 'Hycean' planets - hot, ocean-covered planets with hydrogen-rich atmospheres - which are more numerous and observable than Earth-like planets.

Saturn Has A "Fuzzy" Core

Ripples in Saturn’s innermost rings indicate the planet’s core is not a compact, solid structure as some have theorized but more like a thick “soup” of ice, rock and metallic fluids extending across 60 % of the planet’s diameter.

The Best Evidence for Life on Mars Might be Found on its Moons

Some scientists think the best place to find evidence of life is one of Mars’ moons. They might serve as a depository for material that was blasted off of Mars’ surface in the past.

Nature of fast radio bursts clarified

By connecting two of the biggest radio telescopes in the world, astronomers have discovered that a simple binary wind  fast radio bursts after all. The bursts may come from a highly magnetized, isolated neutron star - magnetar. 

Physicists Achieve 'Historic' Nuclear Fusion Breakthrough

Nuclear scientists using lasers the size of three football fields said they had generated a huge amount of energy from fusion, possibly offering hope for the development of a new clean energy source.

Lab Grown Lactose-Free Milk Could Be The Future of Dairy

A company in California, U.S has found a way to make milk without the cow, created solely in a lab with zero cruelty but all the nutrition. The company now have an array of products that they state are just as good as the original.
