New state of matter made from atoms inside other atoms discovered by physicists

Scientists show 'Rydberg polarons' can be created by increasing orbit of electrons at temperatures approaching absolute zero. |SOURCE| A new state of matter made up of “giant atoms” filled with other, normal atoms, have been revealed in experiments. Called Rydberg polarons, they can be created if an electron can be encouraged to orbit the nucleus [...] Read more

For The First Time Ever, We've Found a Deep-Earth Mineral Inside a Diamond

It's never been seen in nature before. |SOURCE| For the first time, scientists have found calcium silicate perovskite (CaSiO3) on the surface of Earth. It may be the fourth most abundant mineral on Earth, but it had never been seen before by human eyes in nature - because above a depth of about 650 kilometres (400 miles), it becomes unstable. So [...] Read more

Inferring morphology and strength of magnetic fields from proton radiographs

Abstract |SOURCE| Proton radiography is an important diagnostic method for laser plasma experiments and is particularly important in the analysis of magnetized plasmas. The theory of radiographic image analysis has heretofore only permitted somewhat limited analysis of the radiographs of such plasmas. We furnish here a theory that remedies this [...] Read more

Weighing massive stars in nearby galaxy reveals excess of heavyweights

Astronomers have revealed an 'astonishing' overabundance of massive stars in a neighboring galaxy. The discovery, made in the gigantic star-forming region 30 Doradus in the Large Magellanic Cloud galaxy, has 'far-reaching' consequences for our understanding of how stars transformed the pristine Universe into the one we live in today. |SOURCE| An [...] Read more
