A STRANGE EXPLOSION IN A GALAXY BILLIONS OF LIGHT-YEARS AWAY HAS SCIENTISTS STUMPED
While taking the deepest X-ray image of our Universe to date from NASA's Chandra Observatory, researchers detected a mysterious explosion in a galaxy about 10.7 billion light-years away. Scientists know of no astronomical phenomenon that can explain the event.
7 REASONS YOU SHOULD EMBRACE, NOT FEAR, ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
While much attention is placed on the dangers of artificial intelligence and automation, the technology has tremendous potential to improve the world. From revolutionizing healthcare to helping us protect the environment, AI could prove to be humanity's greatest ally.
PHYSICISTS DISCOVER AN UNEXPECTED PHENOMENON IN THE CREATION OF LIGHT PARTICLES
Scientists showed that entangled pairs of photons share input energy equally and can be emitted from spatially separated points. This illustrates the limits to spatial resolution and the positional uncertainty of a fundamental quantum origin.
NASA ASTRONAUTS LOSE A KEY PIECE OF THE ISS SHIELD DURING SPACEWALK
While carrying out repairs during a routine spacewalk, two astronauts lost of a key piece of shielding material for the International Space Station. They were able to address the situation promptly, and NASA reports that the lost object poses no threat to the safety of those on board the ISS.
