Observing activity on the sun to help predict space weather | Digital trends

When the Solar Orbiter spacecraft made its closest flyby of the sun yet in March this year, it collected vast amounts of data from which we can learn more about our star. The European Space Agency, which is leading the mission in conjunction with NASA, has shared a series of documents from the preliminary analysis …

NASA Voyager 1 Sends Strange Signals Beyond Solar System, Engineers Puzzled

NASA Voyager 1 Sends Strange Signals Beyond Solar System, Engineers Puzzled

Forty-five years after its launch, NASA’s Voyager 1 spacecraft continues its journey far beyond our solar system. Launched in 1977, Voyager 1 exited our solar system in 12 years and entered interstellar space in 2012. Despite its advanced age and 14.5 billion miles (23.3 billion kilometers) distance from Earth, the probe continues to send back …

NASA's Voyager 1 space probe from the 1970s hit by a mysterious glitch

NASA’s Voyager 1 space probe from the 1970s hit by a mysterious glitch

NASA’s 45-year-old Voyager 1 spacecraft is a marvel. It navigates outside our solar system and still remains in contact with Earth. But he presented his team with what NASA calls a “mystery.” It works normally but returns strange telemetry data. The problem is likely related to Voyager 1’s Attitude and Articulation Control System (AACS), which …

Here's What Came Out From the US Congressional Hearings on 'Unidentified Aerial Phenomena'

Here’s What Came Out From the US Congressional Hearings on ‘Unidentified Aerial Phenomena’

Credit: public domain CC0 The United States Congress recently held a hearing on US government information regarding “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena” (UAP). The last such investigation was over 50 years ago, as part of a US Air Force investigation called Project Blue Book, which examined reported sightings of unidentified flying objects (note the name change). The …

Scientists Uncover Mirror World Mystery to Solve Hubble Constant Problem

According to a new study, an invisible ‘mirror world’ of particles that interacts with the universe purely through gravity could be the key to solving a crucial cosmological problem – the constant Hubble problem. An artist’s interpretation of the COBE satellite. Image Credit: Matthew Verdolivo, UC, Davis. The Hubble constant is the current rate of …

Collaboration reveals interplay between charge order and nanoscale superconductivity

Collaboration reveals interplay between charge order and nanoscale superconductivity

Credit: public domain CC0 High-temperature superconductivity is something of a holy grail for researchers studying quantum materials. Superconductors, which conduct electricity without dissipating energy, promise to revolutionize our energy and telecommunications systems. However, superconductors typically operate at extremely low temperatures, requiring elaborate freezers or expensive coolants. For this reason, scientists have worked tirelessly on understanding …
