Schwarzites: Long-sought carbon structure joins graphene, fullerene family

UC Berkeley chemists have proved that three carbon structures recently created by scientists in South Korea and Japan are in fact the long-sought schwarzites, which researchers predict will have unique electrical and storage properties like those now being discovered in buckminsterfullerenes (buckyballs or fullerenes for short), nanotubes and graphene.

New study reveals electromagnetic properties of the Great Pyramid of Giza

There has been a number of recent scientific discoveries about the Great Pyramids of Giza using technologically advanced methods. For instance, a methodology that utilizes measurements in the variation of flux from cosmic muons (heavy cousins of the electron)—called archeaological muography—detected evidence for a possible second entrance and hidden corridor in the Great Pyramid of Giza (the largest of the Pyramids of Giza).

High speed stars confirm relativity

General relativity tells us that light will be affected by gravity. This so-called bending of spacetime has now just been observed in the warped light of a star orbiting the Milky Way’s very own super massive black hole (SMBH) – Sagittarius A*.

ESA Mars Express probe identifies massive subterranean lake of liquid water residing below martian surface

Providing resolution to a decades-long debate over whether liquid water is present on Mars, researchers using radar to probe the planet’s polar ice caps have detected a lake of liquid water under the Martian ice. It stretches 20 kilometers across, they say. The detection was made using the Mars Advanced Radar for Subsurface and Ionosphere Sounding (MARSIS) instrument on the Mars Express spacecraft.

A new telescope shows the center of the Milky Way in dazzling, fiery detail

New radio telescope captures stunning images of the center of the Milky Galaxy. The center is normally obscured from view when using traditional methods of observation; it’s behind the constellation Sagittarius, where clouds of gas and dust hide it from view. However, MeerKAT’s radio wavelengths penetrate the obscuring dust and open a window into this distinctive region and its black hole.

Hydrogen dissociation measurement puts theory at odds with experiment

The most precise experimental value for the dissociation energy of molecular hydrogen has been measured and has produced an order of magnitude improvement over the previous best measurements and is a significant deviation from the most recent theoretical calculations. Resolving this discrepancy could lead to improvements in molecular quantum theory and could result in a better measured value for the proton radius.

Multimessenger astronomy

In-direct observations of black holes are made through the detection of electromagnetic radiation emitted by the surrounding matter, and more recently through the detection of gravitational waves. Now for the first time, at an observatory 5000 feet below the Antarctic ice, astronomers have observed a black hole through the detection of neutrinos!

Exotic ‘non-classical paths’ affect quantum interference, experiment confirms

A flaw in how quantum-interference experiments are interpreted has been quantified for the first time by a team of physicists in India. Using the “path integral” formulation of quantum mechanics, the team calculated the interference pattern created when electrons or photons travel through a set of three slits. It found that non-classical paths – in which a particle can weave its way through several slits – must be considered along with the conventional quantum superposition of three direct paths (one through each of the slits). The team says the effect should be measurable in experiments involving microwave photons, and that the work could also provide insights into potential sources of decoherence in some quantum-information systems.
