Dalton’s Atomic Theory

dalton's atomic theory

We all know that all matter in the universe is made up of microscopically small particles called atoms. The word atom comes from the Greek word άτομο, which means indivisible. Many ancient philosophers (like Kanada from India & Democritus from Greece) had a vague qualitative idea of the ultimate constituents of matter. Their views are … Read more

Internet bLackout due to A solar storm

Internet blackout due to a solar storm.

A solar storm has such power that it can destroy many electrical equipments on earth and can cause an internet blackout. Solar storm impact can create severe problems on earth like Grid failure. An Indian researcher Sangeetha Abdu Jythin said that in 2021 a massive solar storm is likely coming and the internet, which is … Read more

MUSE observations of the blue compact dwarf galaxy Haro 14

GALAXY HARO 14

Using the Multi-Unit Spectroscopic Explorer (MUSE), German astronomers have performed spectroscopic observations of a blue compact galaxy known as Haro 14. Results of the study, presented in a paper published August 20 on arXiv.org, shed more light on the galaxy’s morphology and its stellar populations. Blue compact galaxies (BCGs) are about a 10th of the … Read more

Could It Detect The Dark Matter Particles?

Beryllium crystal

Beryllium crystal might help us in the hunt for dark matter. Using a quark of quantum mechanics researchers have created a beryllium crystal which is capable of detecting very weak electromagnetic fields. This could be used to detect hypothetical dark matter particles called axions. Ana Maria Rey, an atomic physicist at JILA, a joint institute … Read more

How Star Making Process Is Polluting The Cosmos?

The DUVET Survey: Direct Te-based Metallicity Mapping of Metal-enriched Outflows and Metal-poor Inflows in Markarian 1486

A team of astronomers at the ARC Center of Excellence for All Sky Astrophysics in 3 Dimensions (ASTRO 3D) found that galaxies pollute the environment they exist in. Alex Cameron and Deanne Fisher lead researcher team used a new imaging system, at WM Keck Observatory in Hawaii to confirm that what flows into a galaxy … Read more

Quantum Computer: What The Future Holds?

Quantum Computer: What The Future Holds

Computers have become essential for our modern lifestyle. We use them for work, studying, banking, shopping and much more. They are now a core component of our everyday lives. In the past couple of decades, a new type of computer has been under development, the quantum computer. It promises to change our lives by potentially … Read more

Is Battery Swapping Is The Way Ahead?

IS BATTERY SWAPPING IS THE WAY AHEAD

These days if you have got even the vaguest interest in the automotive world it’s impossible to ignore the fact that the pace of electric vehicle integration is accelerating rapidly. And it’s not just Tesla either. Just about all the major car manufacturers, plus several independent companies now have one or more electric vehicle options … Read more

A Tail From Collapse Of Comet ATLAS

A TAIL FROM COLLAPSE OF COMET ATLAS

Comet ATLAS, also known as C/2019 Y4 ATLAS, was first discovered on December 28, 2019, by a reflecting telescope atop Mauna Loa in Hawaii as part of the Asteroid Terrestrial-impact Last Alert System (ATLAS). By May 2020 Comet ATLAS was visible to the naked eye as it grew brighter, the Long-period comet ATLAS disintegrated just … Read more

New research adds a wrinkle to our understanding of the origins of matter in the Milky Way

NEW RESEARCH ADDS A WRINKLE TO OUR UNDERSTANDING OF THE ORIGINS OF MATTER IN THE MILKY WAY

New findings published this week in Physical Review Letters suggest that carbon, oxygen, and hydrogen cosmic rays travel through the galaxy toward Earth in a similar way, but, surprisingly, that iron arrives at Earth differently. Learning more about how cosmic rays move through the galaxy helps address a fundamental, lingering question in astrophysics: How is … Read more

EFFECTS OF BLACK HOLES BEYOND THEIR OWN GALAXIES

EFFECTS OF BLACK HOLES BEYOND THEIR OWN GALAXIES

At the heart of almost every sufficiently massive galaxy, there is a black hole whose gravitational field, although very intense, affects only a small region around the centre of the galaxy. Even though these objects are thousands of millions of times smaller than their host galaxies, our current view is that the Universe can be … Read more

ASTEROID 16 PSYCHE MIGHT NOT BE WHAT SCIENTISTS EXPECTED

asteroid 16 psyche

The widely studied metallic asteroid known as 16 Psyche was long thought to be the exposed iron core of a small planet that failed to form during the solar system’s earliest days. But new University of Arizona-led research suggests that the asteroid might not be as metallic or dense as once thought and hints at … Read more

SCIENTISTS DISCOVER A NEW EXOPLANET WITH A RIPE ATMOSPHERE

SCIENTISTS DISCOVER A NEW EXOPLANET WITH A RIPE ATMOSPHERE M3 Dwarf NLTT 24399

An international group of collaborators, including scientists from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and The University of New Mexico, have discovered a new, temperate sub-Neptune sized exoplanet with a 24-day orbital period orbiting a nearby M dwarf star. The recent discovery offers exciting research opportunities thanks to the planet’s substantial atmosphere, small star, and how fast … Read more

NASA’S JUNO SPACECRAFT CAPTURED SOME DRAMATIC IMAGES OF THE ICY ORB, GANYMEDE

This image of Ganymede was obtained by the JunoCam imager during Juno’s June 7, 2021, flyby of the icy moon

NASA’s Juno spacecraft flew closer to Jupiter’s largest moon than any other in more than two decades, offering dramatic glimpses of the icy orb. The first two images from NASA Juno’s June 7, 2021, flyby of Jupiter’s giant moon Ganymede have been received on Earth. The photos – one from the Jupiter orbiter’s JunoCam imager … Read more

FOR THE FIRST TIME, ASTRONOMERS HAVE OBSERVED ALFVEN WAVES IN THE PHOTOSPHERE OF THE SUN

ALFVEN WAVES IN THE PHOTOSPHERE OF THE SUN

As we all know, the Sun is a giant ball of plasma, and like any plasma, it should support Alfven waves.  Alfven waves are waves in a plasma where the ions move in response to tension from a magnetic field. Scientists predicted it 50 years ago until now we had not been able to see them.  … Read more
