Dark Energy Might Not Exist At All | Latest Simulations

Dark Energy Might Not Exist

Our universe is expanding – all matters in the universe are gradually drifting apart. It was discovered by Edwin Hubble in 1931 while he was studying the far away galaxies. In 1998, humans came to know that the expansion is accelerated – universe seems to be expanding at an increasing rate. To explain this phenomena, scientists proposed ...

Rare Titanium Oxide Found on the Atmosphere of An Exoplanet

titanium oxide

A team of astronomers has recently detected the existence of a rare mineral known as titanium oxide in the atmosphere of a distant exoplanet. Designated as WASP-19b, the exoplanet is situated at 815 light years away from the Earth in the vela constellation. The finding was done using the Very Large Telescope (VLT) of the European Southern Observatory. The ...

HDD With High Storage Capacity Will Be Made Of Glass | 20TB and Beyond

glass hard drive

Hoya Corporation, Tokyo based company, unveiled its Hard Disk Drive prototype made of glass, which could push forward the development of high storage HDDs. They are now encouraging other manufacturers to ditch aluminum and use glass substrates. Over the last couple of years, the rate of improvements of hard drive density has significantly reduced. Although ...

Robotic Hand With Artificial Skin Gains A Sense of Touch

Robotic Hand With Artificial Skin

Scientists at the University of Houston have achieved a milestone in stretchable electronics, which can be used as an artificial skin to give robotic hand a sense of touch. This allows the robot to differentiate between what’s cold and what’s hot, while providing different advantages to tons of biomedical instruments. The new approach for creating ...

A New Planetary Classification Suggest That Earth Is Now A Hybrid Planet

Earth Is Now A Hybrid Planet

A new study done by the researchers from the University of Washington suggests that our planet is now entering into a whole new geological era. The proposed era will be dominated by increased levels of emissions and man-made materials. The team named it the Anthropocene era. According to paper’s lead author ecologist Marina Alberti, our planet could ...

Inside A11 Bionic Chip | Apple’s Approach to Artificial Intelligence

A11 Bionic Chip

Launched on September 12, iPhone X, 8 and 8+ will run on new A11 Bionic chip, yet again raising the performance bar. Every new iPhone version comes with slightly better hardware, cameras and faster processors. However, for the first time, Apple’s smartphone, iPhone X will feature a custom-built chip developed for handling artificial intelligence workloads. ...

Physicists Have Cooled Molecules Below The Doppler Limit – 50 MicroKelvin

coldest molecule

Physicists have developed a new method that pushes the limits of freezing molecules to slightly above absolute zero. They have used a combination of magnetic fields and lasers to trap and cool down a molecule of calcium monofluoride to 50 millionths of a degree above absolute zero – 50 microKelvin, or minus 273.15 degree Celsius. Although, it is not ...

Rotational Speed Of Galaxies Have A Major Impact On Their Shape

SAMI survey - Rotational Speed Of Galaxies

For the first time in nearly a century, astronomers have been able to accurately measure how much effect can a galactic rotation have on its overall shape. It turns out to be massive. Considering the vastness of even a small galaxy, measuring a perfect 3D shape is an extremely complex job. But researchers from the ...

The All New Physics of 21st Century | Interesting Theories

Sun death - no explosion

Physicists study the nature of universe and introduce us with unknown and shocking facts of the cosmos. Most of the things present in outer space are odd already and we have just begun to understand the only tiny fraction of it. Today, there are so many strange theories out there that it’s impossible to mention them ...

Machine Learning Can Now Better Predict Earthquakes

Machine Learning Can Now Better Predict Earthquakes

Scientists at Los Alamos National Lab have discovered a machine learning technique that can forecast the time remaining before the fault fails, by detecting acoustic signal emitted by lab-generated earthquake. ‘At any specific moment, the signals (noise) emerging from lab fault zone give significant data that tells when the fault will slip’ says Paul Johnson, lead ...

AI Can Accurately Analyze Gravitational Lenses 10 Million Times Faster

AI Can Accurately Analyze Gravitational Lenses

Scientists at Stanford University and SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory have demonstrated that neural networks can accurately analyze gravitational lenses (complex distortion in spacetime) about 10 million times faster than conventional techniques. Today’s methods require input from experts and are computationally demanding. They usually take weeks or even months to complete. However, the same results can be achieved ...
