Earth Asteroid Impacts Mirrored on Moon – Including the Dinosaur Killer

Lunar craters. Credit & Copyright: Eduardo Schaberger Poupeau Lunar glass shows Moon asteroid impacts mirrored on Earth Scientists have found asteroid impacts on the Moon millions of years ago coincided precisely with some of the largest meteorite impacts on Earth, such as the one that wiped out the dinosaurs. Additionally, the new research study also … Read more

Stunning room-temperature-superconductor claim is retracted

A magnet levitating over a cryogenically cooled superconductor (artist’s concept).Credit: KTSDesign/Science Photo Library A high-profile study in which researchers claimed to have observed the first true room-temperature superconductor has been retracted. Physicist Ranga Dias at the University of Rochester in New York and his collaborators stirred interest but also caution with a 2020 Nature paper1 … Read more

AI Reduces a 100,000-Equation Quantum Physics Problem to Only Four Equations

Abstract quantum physics illustration. Scientists trained a machine learning tool to capture the physics of electrons moving on a lattice using far fewer equations than would typically be required, all without sacrificing accuracy. A daunting quantum problem that until now required 100,000 equations has been compressed into a bite-size task of as few as four … Read more

Humans evolved from armoured shark that lived 439 million years ago, researchers claim

HUMANS evolved from an armoured shark that lived 439 million years ago, researchers claim. Scientists reckon the bizarre beast could be our oldest jawed ancestor. 1 Humans evolved from an armoured shark that lived 439 million years ago, researchers claimCredit: Reuters The fish, named Fanjingshania renovata, grew to up to 2½ft.

Nuclear fusion breakthrough as scientists crack vital code for ‘holy grail’ energy source | Science | News

Nuclear fusion is a process that occurs naturally in stars like the Sun, taking hydrogen nuclei and combining them to form helium — releasing colossal amounts of energy in the process. Dubbed the ‘holy grail’ energy source, fusion has the potential to generate more than four million times the amount of energy released by an … Read more

The Omega Speedmaster X-33 Marstimer Is the Ultimate Watch for Space Nerds

With the likes of amazing pictures from the James Webb Space Telescope, private space exploration and NASA’s DART Mission just last night, space nerdery is going mainstream. And Omega is bringing you more cool science-non-fiction with a new watch that tracks time zones on Earth and on Mars. Long the official watchmaker of NASA, Omega … Read more

Asteroid that crashed into Earth 2 billion years ago was up to 15 miles wide

An asteroid that hit the Earth two billion years ago in what is now South Africa was even larger than the one that wiped out the dinosaurs, new research suggests. Previous studies estimated that the planet’s largest crater was formed by an object that was about 9.3 miles (15 km) wide and travelling as a … Read more

Nasa ‘should leave it to Elon Musk to launch rockets’ after Artemis fail which may stop future missions, expert explains

NASA has had to cancel its Artemis I Moon rocket mission for the third time and its billion-dollar rocket is now off the launchpad and back indoors. As the world watches the US space agency and the mission that’s supposed to take us back to the Moon, some experts are worried that Nasa is being … Read more

Superconductivity Model With 100,000 Equations Now Contains Just 4 Thanks to AI : ScienceAlert

Electrons whizzing through a grid-like lattice don’t behave at all like pretty silver spheres in a pinball machine. They blur and bend in collective dances, following whims of a wave-like reality that are hard enough to imagine, let alone compute. And yet scientists have succeeded in doing just that, capturing the motion of electrons moving … Read more
