A comet the size of a small planet! is headed for us! Who can hide from that?

“After 3.5 million-year hiatus, the largest comet ever discovered is headed our way” Is the title to the Space.com’s article posted about 10 hrs ago. “The comet, known as the Bernardinelli-Bernstein comet (or C/2014 UN271, in astro-speak), is at least 62 miles (100 kilometers) across — about 1,000 times more massive than a typical comet. It’s soContinue reading “A comet the size of a small planet! is headed for us! Who can hide from that?”

“A new simulation of the universe is a map and a time machine rolled up into one” #LiveScience

Called Uchuu, which is Japanese for “Outer Space,” the map doesn’t include Casseipoia or the moons of Neptune; instead, it’s a map of large-scale galaxies and galaxy clusters, all glued together by an invisible web of dark matter, which emits no electromagnetic radiation but still exerts a gravitational force upon the universe.  https://www.livescience.com/simulation-universe-uchuu.html

Now for the first time, scientists at MIT and elsewhere have cooled a large, human-scale object to close to its motional ground state. MIT as reported by Sarah McDonnell, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

When it comes to Matter the molecules that make up solid, liquids or gas is the inner movement of the molecules themselves, or vibration, and not every molecule vibrates at the same levels which can help explain certain aspects of specific molecules. Scientist have used extreme cold temps to try and slow down the vibration,Continue reading “Now for the first time, scientists at MIT and elsewhere have cooled a large, human-scale object to close to its motional ground state.

‘Giant arc’ stretching 3.3 billion light-years across the cosmos shouldn’t exist

By Adam Mann – Live Science Contributor 4 days ago Did anyone else catch this news? It is 4 days old so maybe some of you might have caught it. It struck me, because I was trying to contemplate the size of this arrangement. It is un-imaginable. Click link to read full story “The epic arrangement, called the GiantContinue reading “‘Giant arc’ stretching 3.3 billion light-years across the cosmos shouldn’t exist”

“It turns out that what goes up needn’t come back down. “

According to scientist interviewed reported be LiveScience.com. Link below for full article “Physicists have achieved a phenomenon known as subradiance, in which atoms linger in an excited state, in a dense cloud of atoms for the first time.  Harnessing subradiance could allow scientists to create reliable, long-lived quantum networks from clouds of atoms, the physicists reported inContinue reading ““It turns out that what goes up needn’t come back down. “”

Scientist think that the first matter the Universe was a liquid according to Space.com

Scientists created this soupy stew at the world’s largest atom smasher, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) on the border of Geneva, in Switzerland. By smashing heavy atomic nuclei together, the scientists could create a tiny fireball that effectively melts particles into their primordial forms for a fraction of a second. The scientists think they firstContinue reading “Scientist think that the first matter the Universe was a liquid according to Space.com”

Spacetime crystals proposed by placing space and time on an equal footing

by Pennsylvania State University “Relativity tells us space and time can mix to form a single entity called spacetime, which is four-dimensional: three space-axes and one time-axis,” said Venkatraman Gopalan, professor of materials science and engineering and physics at Penn State. “However, something about the time-axis sticks out like sore thumb.” For calculations to work within relativity, scientistsContinue reading “Spacetime crystals proposed by placing space and time on an equal footing”
