The ‘Forbidden’ Planet has been found in the ‘Neptunian Desert’

A Neptunian planet has been found in what should be a 'Neptunian Desert' by telescopes run by the University of Warwick in an international collaboration of astronomers.NGTS-4b is 20% smaller than Neptune, about 3 times the size of Earth, and... Continue Reading →

NICER’s night moves trace the X-ray sky

In this image, numerous sweeping arcs seem to congregate at various bright regions. You may wonder: What is being shown? Air traffic routes? Information moving around the global internet? Magnetic fields looping across active areas on the Sun? In fact,... Continue Reading →

Scientists discover ‘switch’ that helps breast cancer spread around the body

The early-stage research, led by scientists from Imperial College London and The Institute of Cancer Research, London, identified a genetic 'switch' in breast cancer cells that boosts the production of a type of internal scaffolding. This scaffolding is a type... Continue Reading →

Genetic analysis of cannabis is here

Research from Washington State University could provide government regulators with powerful new tools for addressing a bevy of commercial claims and other concerns as non-medical marijuana, hemp and CBD products become more commonplace. The new analysis of the genetic and... Continue Reading →

Researchers discover link between circadian clock and fat metabolism

The enzyme Nocturnin, which governs daily tasks such as fat metabolism and energy usage, works in an entirely different way than previously thought, reported a team of researchers at Princeton University. The newly discovered mechanism reveals the molecular link between... Continue Reading →

Scientists uncover exotic matter in the Sun’s atmosphere

The scientists used large radio telescopes and ultraviolet cameras on a NASA spacecraft to better understand the exotic but poorly understood "fourth state of matter." Known as plasma, this matter could hold the key to developing safe, clean and efficient... Continue Reading →

Breakthrough in new material to harness solar power

The most affordable, efficient way to harness the cleanest, most abundant renewable energy source in the world is one step closer to reality. The University of Toledo physicist pushing the performance of solar cells to levels never before reached made... Continue Reading →

3D Earth in the making

A thorough understanding of the ‘solid Earth’ system is essential for deciphering the links between processes occurring deep inside Earth and those occurring nearer the surface that lead to seismic activity such as earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, the rise of mountains... Continue Reading →
