  • Australian astronomers witness death throes of a cocooned star

    An international team of astronomers has seen the death throes of a star cocooned inside a dense shell of gas and dust, which ended in a violent explosion unlike a typical supernova.

    “We’ve discovered yet another way that stars die and distribute material back into space,” said , including Dr. Brad Tucker from The Australian National University’s Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics.


    • Astronomers Just Measured The Total Amount Of Light Ever Produced By All The Stars In The Universe And The Number Is Insane

      This is one of those things you may think is impossible to comprehend or measure but a group of astronomers has now measured the overall amount of light that has ever been produced by all the stars in the known universe.

      The answer to this is stated in terms of quantum particles of light known as photons. So, the total number of photons produced by all the stars in the known universe is 4 trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion.


      • Eureka! Astronomers find a Big Bang fossil

        Only 2 other fossil clouds are known in our universe, and both were serendipitous discoveries. Then astronomers began searching for these rare relics, and found one!

        Bottom line: Astronomers used the light of a distant quasar to discover a cloud made mainly of elements released in the Big Bang, lacking the heavier elements made inside stars. They’re calling this cloud a “fossil” of the Big Bang.


        • Living tissue 'printed' in space for the first time

          Russian cosmonauts have printed living tissue in space for the first time after their first effort was thwarted by a Soyuz capsule accident. Using a bioprinter created by medical company Invitro, cosmonaut-researcher Oleg Kononenko printed human cartilage tissue and a rodent thyroid gland, according to Parabolic Arc. The aim is to see how space microgravity affects the development of living tissues and organs, with an eye to expanded human space travel in the future.


          • Researchers chart the 'secret' movement of quantum particles

            Researchers from the University of Cambridge have taken a peek into the secretive domain of quantum mechanics. In a theoretical paper published in the journal Physical Review A, they have shown that the way that particles interact with their environment can be used to track quantum particles when they're not being observed, which had been thought to be impossible.

              By switching a magnetic field’s direction up and down, researchers interfered matter waves to produce density ripples that led to firework-like jets.

                The emerging realm of quantum biology has much to teach us about the fundamental nature of life.

                The real history of quantum biology

                Quantum biology, a young and increasingly popular science genre, isn't as new as many believe, with a complicated and somewhat dark history, explain the founders of the world's first quantum biology doctoral training centre.

                  On June 17th 2018, the ATLAS (Asteroid Terrestrial-impact Last Alert System) survey’s twin telescopes spotted something extraordinarily bright in the sky. The source was 200 million light years away in the constellation Hercules.
