Scientists Observe Matter Falling Into Black Hole At 30% Light Speed

Matter Falling Into Black Hole

Researchers observed a billion light-year distant galaxy named PG211+143.  Like other galaxies, it has a supermassive black hole in the center. They detected matter falling into this black hole at an extremely fast speed of nearly 90,000,000 meters per second.  Black holes have an enormously strong gravitational field, so strong that even light cannot escape. They ...

New AI Converts Black And White Videos To Color In Real-Time

New deep learning algorithm allows editors to quickly colorize a whole video by colorizing one frame in the scene.  It’s highly accurate, efficient and up to 50 times faster than previous methods.  Videos are comprised of a lot of redundant data between frames and it takes a vast amount of time to manually colorize each ...

New Technique Of Printing Electronic Circuits With Copper Nanoparticles And Green Laser

Printing Electronic Circuits

New thin-layer printing technique uses copper oxide and green laser light to print an electronic circuit board.  It’s more efficient and cheaper than traditional methods.  It utilizes photonic sintering process to achieve low resistivity.  A printed circuit board connects electrical components through conductive pads, tracks and multiple sheets of copper. These components are typically soldered onto the ...

10 Strongest Bases Ever Synthesized

Butyllithium - strongest bases

A base, in chemistry, refers to any substance that releases hydroxide ions (OH−) when dissolved in water or aqueous solution. Many bases, however, don’t readily carry hydroxide ions but they too produce high levels of OH− when treated with water. This type of reaction can be observed when ammonia is treated with water to produce ammonium and hydroxide. ...

Astronomers Measure The Asteroid Between Mars and Jupiter

Measure The Asteroid - Palma

Palma asteroid revolves around the Sun and completes one revolution in 5.59 years. In May 2017, Palma eclipsed the radio waves coming from radio galaxy. Astronomers analyzed these signals and measured characteristics of Palma.  In a strange observation, researchers studied radio waves coming from a far-away radio galaxy when an asteroid in our Solar System came ...

What Genes Control How Much We Dream?

Brain Genes Linked with Intelligence

Neuroscientists found two genes that regulate mammals’ REM sleep.  These two receptors are known as Chrm1 and Chrm3.  Removing Chrm1 reduces and fragments REM sleep, while knockout of Chrm3 decreases the length of non-REM sleep.  Sleep is a universal reoccurring state of body and mind, characterized by changes in voluntary muscles, sensory activity, and consciousness. Until ...

Strongest Material In The Universe Lies In Neutron Stars’ Crust

Neutron Star

Nuclear pasta is the strongest known material in the universe. It is nearly 100 trillion times denser than water. To estimate its strength, researchers used computer simulations that required 2 million hours worth of single-core processor time. Nuclear pasta is thought to exist within crusts of nuclear stars. Between the core of a neutron star and ...

Jupiter’s Magnetic Field is Different From Other Planets

Equatorial view of Jupiter's magnetic field

Jupiter has the most powerful planetary magnetic field in our solar system.  It has both dipolar and non-dipolar magnetic field.  This morphology of field is a result of Jupiter’s composition, electrical conductivity, and thermodynamic properties. The aim of NASA’s Juno spacecraft is to understand the origin and evolution of the biggest planet of our solar system, ...

Xbash: A New Malware Targeting Windows And Linux

Xbash new malware

Xbash targets Microsoft Windows and Linux servers.  It has crypto-mining and ransomware capabilities. Initially written in Python, the malware is still under development.  Within a year, detection of crypto-mining malware has increased 459%, reported by Cyber Threat Alliance, citing data gathered by multiple companies. As long as cryptocurrencies hold value among attackers, illegal mining activity ...
