The baby raptor discovered in Alaska may have been a permanent inhabitant of the ancient Arctic

Analysis of the tip of a petrified jawbone just 14 millimeters long in Northern Alaska showed that the creature was a kind of dromaeosaur, a group of predatory dinosaurs closely related to birds, of which the velociraptor, the dinosaurs, belonged have terrorized “Jurassic Park.” The jawbone would have been from a young dinosaur chick, and the early developmental stage of …

With the help of a new software model, scientists at NASA’s JPL have discovered the center of our solar system

Defining the center of an area as large as our solar system is difficult at best, but thanks to the work of the National Science Foundation’s gravitational wave observatory and sophisticated new modeling software, researchers working with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab have now discovered the porthole our planetary neighborhood. In a new study recently published in the Astrophysical Journal’s online …

The crystal structure discovered almost 200 years ago can revolutionize solar cells

Perovskite structure. Photo credit: John Labram, Oregon State University Solar energy researchers at Oregon State University take a scientific look at materials with a crystal structure that was discovered almost two centuries ago. Not all materials with the structure known as perovskites are semiconductors. However, perovskites based on metal and halogen are and they have enormous potential as photovoltaic cells, …

Mysteriously repeated radio signals discovered from outside our galaxy

Astronomers recently discovered a strange, repeating rhythm of rapid radio waves from outside our galaxy. According to a statement by MIT, which was involved in the investigation, the radio waves come from a distance of 500 million light years. A light year that measures the distance in space is about 6 trillion miles. Details of the radio bursts were announced …

A cosmic baby is discovered and it is brilliant

This illustration shows magnetic field lines that protrude from a highly magnetic neutron star, or a dense nugget that remains after a star enters the supernova and explodes. These objects, known as magnetars, generate bright flashes of light that may be driven by their strong magnetic fields. Credit: ESA Astronomers tend to have a slightly different sense of time than …

Unexpected, widespread structures discovered near the Earth’s core – “A completely new perspective”

Earthquakes send sound waves through the earth. Seismograms record the echoes when these waves move along the core-mantle boundary and bend and bend around dense rock structures. New research from the University of Maryland offers a first comprehensive overview of these structures and shows that they are far more widespread than previously known.
