Unified Science in Resonance with Nature
New footage of unidentified advanced propulsion craft captured by the U.S. navy has been released
A new purported military video of an unidentified aircraft has been made public, following the Pentagon’s acknowledgment last year that it had shelved an initiative devoted to identifying unknown objects in aerospace. To The Stars Academy of Arts and Science — an organization leading on the issue that includes a former head of the now-defunct Pentagon program and was co-founded by former Blink182 musician Tom DeLonge — released the video titled “GO FAST” on Friday. The group said it is Defense Department footage from an F/A-18 Super Hornet’s video of the “high-speed flight of an unidentified aircraft.” The Pentagon declined to comment about the footage to CNN, and To The Stars Academy said multiple government organizations reviewed the video for release, and that anyone could obtain the video using a Freedom of Information Act request.
Scientist Propose Feasible Test of Quantum Gravity
Two teams of researchers working independently of one another have come up with an experiment designed to prove that gravity and quantum mechanics can be reconciled. The first team is a pairing of Chiara Marletto of the University of Oxford and Vlatko Vedral of National University of Singapore. The second is an international collaboration. In the papers, both published in Physical Review Letters, the teams describe their experiment and how it might be carried out.
Astrophysical disks governed by equation for subatomic matter
Astrophysical disks are among the top unsolved problems of astrophysics and now a scientist at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) has shown how the equations of subatomic matter can be used to describe them.
The Worsening Cosmic Ray Situation
Over the last decade, the solar wind has exhibited low densities and magnetic field strengths, representing anomalous states that have never been observed during the space age. the cycle 23–24 solar activity led to the longest solar minimum in more than 80 years and continued into the “mini” solar maximum of cycle 24. During this weak activity, galactic cosmic ray fluxes were observed that exceeded the levels observed throughout the space age, and small solar energetic particle events were observed.
Improved accuracy on Hubble constant suggests new physics
The accuracy of the Hubble constant has been a topic of debate since its discovery in the 1920’s. When an agreement seemed to be finally on the horizon a new measuring technique showed a discrepancy and now that discrepancy has just been verified to even more accuracy.
Discovery of an Ancient Supermassive Black Hole is Upending Conventional Theory of Star and Galaxy Formation
Astronomers have just found some of the most massive black holes discovered in our Universe. The sizes far exceed predictions on when supermassive black holes first formed and just how big and fast they can grow. The observations are a challenge to the current paradigm of synchronized galaxy–black hole growth, indicating that black holes must come first.
Homo sapiens Direct Ancestors Migrated Out of Africa 2 million years ago
There has been a constant stream of discoveries in the last twelve months which suggest a need to move back the dates for our early ancestor’s migration out of Africa. Modern human fossils uncovered in Asia, as well as new DNA studies, have pushed back the occupation of that continent from 60,000 to 120,000 years ago. Stone tools and hominin fossils discoveries suggest that archaic Homo sapiens inhabited parts of Eurasia well before 200,000 years ago, at least 300,000 to 400,000 years ago.
Scientists created an acoustic tractor beam
It is remarkable what can be achieved with acoustic waves. During the last two decades, scientists have demonstrated photon creation with the sonoluminescence effect, acoustic levitation and sound hologram. Acoustic vortices are another interesting effect. They have been extensively studied for their ability to trap particles and recently a team achieved the stable three-dimensional trapping of Rayleigh particles (i.e., particle with a radius smaller than the wavelength a ≪ λ).
Watch live: SpaceX’s colossal Falcon Heavy may finally fly today
KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLORIDA—Today may finally be the day. After nearly a decade of development, the Falcon Heavy has finally reached the launch pad and undergone all of its preflight tests. All that remains is to fuel the three boosters and light 27 engines.
Whirling plane of satellite galaxies challenges cosmological cold dark matter model
The cosmological cold dark matter model assumes that most satellite galaxy systems are close to isotropic – that is with no preferred direction. Now, in a recently published paper, a team of astronomers from the university of Irvine, California, have just challenged the validity of such a model.
Hydrodynamic Simulation Predicts Large-Scale Cosmic Web in High Structural Detail
Novel computational methods have helped create the most information-packed universe-scale simulation ever produced. The new tool provides fresh insights into how black holes influence the distribution of dark matter, how heavy elements are produced and distributed throughout the cosmos, and where magnetic fields originate.
