IceCube Neutrino Observatory traces ghost particle to distant galaxy

Astronomers are excited by the potential for a new field of astronomy -- neutrino astronomy. |SOURCE| With the help of the IceCube Neutrino Observatory in Antarctica, astronomers have identified the origins of a cosmic neutrino, an elusive subatomic particle. Neutrinos, sometimes called ghost particles, are electrically neutral and nearly [...] Read more

Europa’s Ocean Ascending

This animation demonstrates how deformation in the icy surface of Europa could transport subsurface ocean water to the moon’s surface. |SOURCE| This is just one of several simulated behaviors reported in a new study performed by scientists at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The study focused on linear features called “bands” and “groove lanes” [...] Read more

Earth's oldest biological colour discovered in rocks beneath Sahara Desert

The discovery of the world's oldest biological colour could help explain why it took 4 billion years for animal life to form on Earth. |SOURCE| International research led by the Australian National University (ANU) has resulted in the discovery of a 1.1-billion-year-old colour — the oldest in geological record. It is more than 500 million years [...] Read more

Physicists Just Discovered an Entirely New Type of Superconductivity

"No one thought this was possible in solid materials." |SOURCE| One of the ultimate goals of modern physics is to unlock the power of superconductivity, where electricity flows with zero resistance at room temperature. Progress has been slow, but physicists have just made an unexpected breakthrough. They've discovered a superconductor that works [...] Read more
