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.

It’s a …. Planet!

Planets are hypothesized to have formed in a collapsing cloud of gas and dust in the thin surrounding discs of their proto ‘parent’ star. However, the exact details of the planetary formation process are yet to be fully understood and until now further exploration has proved difficult.

Habitable water world exoplanets

Scientists expand the range of conditions thought to be suitable for habitability of exoplanets. A new study provides new clues indicating that an exoplanet 500 light-years away is much like Earth. Kepler-186f is the first identified Earth-sized planet outside the Solar System orbiting a star in the habitable zone. This means it’s the proper distance from its host star for liquid water to pool on the surface.

Have we found the missing baryons?

Theoretical predictions of the amount of baryonic matter that should exist in the Universe does not match the amount that is observed – in fact it is off by more than a factor of 2. However, recent observations could have just found this missing baryonic matter!

DNA Acts Like a Wire to Conduct Electron Signals Between Proteins for Repair and Replication

In the early 1990s, Jacqueline Barton, the John G. Kirkwood and Arthur A. Noyes Professor of Chemistry at Caltech, discovered an unexpected property of DNA—that it can act like an electrical wire to transfer electrons quickly across long distances. Later, she and her colleagues showed that cells take advantage of this trait to help locate and repair potentially harmful mutations to DNA.

Stabilized entanglement of massive mechanical oscillators

The elusive quantum mechanical phenomenon called entanglement has now been made a reality in objects almost macroscopic in size. Results published in Nature show how two vibrating drumheads, the width of a human hair, can display the spooky action.

Not junk: ‘Jumping gene’ is critical for early embryo

A so-called “jumping gene” that researchers long considered either genetic junk or a pernicious parasite is actually a critical regulator of the first stages of embryonic development, according to a new study in mice led by UC San Francisco scientists and published June 21, 2018 in Cell.
