Even Incredibly Dense Neutron Star Falls Like A Feather

Dense Neutron Star - PSR J0337+1715

Researchers test Einstein’s general relativity theory on a triple star system that is 4,200 light years away.  They found that both neutron star (heavy and dense) and white dwarf star (less massive) fall towards an outer dwarf at the same rate.  Any acceleration difference between inner white dwarf and neutron star is too small to ...

New, Efficient Coating Technique Makes Natural Fabrics Water-Repellent

water repellent coating technique

The new coating technique makes natural fabric water-repellent, and it works better than existing methods.  The fabrics have passed repeated washing tests and harsh abrasion tests without any degradation and damage to the coating. Waterproof fabrics are usually synthetic fibers that are coated or laminated with waterproofing materials like silicone elastomer, polyvinyl chloride (PVC), fluoropolymers, and ...

15 Brightest Stars In The Sky | Based On Apparent Magnitude

Alpha Centauri - brightest stars

The brightness of any stellar object or any object in space is measured by the apparent magnitude of that body. Well, that’s just one way to do it. Apparent magnitude is the level of brightness witnessed by an observer on the Earth. Brightness and the magnitude value have an inverse relationship, i.e. more the brightness less ...

How Big Are Neutron Stars?

How Big Are Neutron Stars - new constraints on radii

Astrophysicists determine new constraints on radii and tidal deformabilities of neutron stars.  They compared 2 billion theoretical models with gravitational waves captured in 2017.  This allowed them to deduce the size of neutron stars within a range of 1.5 kilometers: it varies from 12 to 13.5 km.  A neutron star is a collapsed core of a massive star ...

AI And Quantum Mechanics Can Increase Magnetometer Sensitivity

Increase Magnetometer Sensitivity

Researchers develop a new method to measure magnetic fields using quantum system and machine learning techniques. They reach a sensitivity that is 6 times higher than what can be achieved with conventional techniques.  There are certain limits to how precisely one can measure things. Take an X-ray image for example, it’s quite blurry and requires an ...
