Yellowstone: USGS experiment induces swarms of earthquakes on volatile supervolcano | Science | news

The volatile Yellowstone Supervolcano was struck by a swarm of 91 earthquakes in just 24 hours this week. In this context, the Yellowstone volcano was struck by a total of 82 earthquakes throughout August. The United States Geological Survey (USGS) confirmed the swarm of quakes – but claimed most of them were deliberately induced by scientists themselves. In an alarming …

Heavy atom sheds its courage in a decades-long experiment

With proton beams and lasers, physicists discovered for the first time one of the key secrets of the rarest naturally occurring element on earth: astatine. Astatine is a “halogen”, which means that it shares chemical properties with fluorine, chlorine, bromine and iodine (all elements that typically bind with metals to form salts). However, at 85 protons, it is heavier than …

Long-standing tension in the standard model of particle physics, addressed by the ATLAS experiment at CERN

A new ATLAS measurement of a key feature of the standard model, known as Lepton flavor universality, suggests that an earlier discrepancy measured by the LEP collider in W boson decays may be due to fluctuation. The best known particle in the Lepton family is the electron, a key building block of matter and central to our understanding of electricity. …

The new Chrome experiment promises up to 28% more battery life

The latest experimental extension of the Chrome browser promises a lot of power consumption. As stated by TheWindowsClub, processing a laptop in the Canarian version of Chrome called “Throttle Javascript Timer in the Background” will reduce the processing that normally takes place in background registers, and a laptop’s runtime can be extended by two hours. JavaScript timers often track user …

Google’s latest experiment is Keen, an automated, machine-learning version of Pinterest – TechCrunch

A new project called Keen is being launched today by Google’s internal ideas incubator, Area 120, to help users pursue their interests. The app is like a modern rethink of the Google Alerts service, which allows users to monitor the web for certain content. Rather than sending emails about new Google search results, Keen uses a combination of machine learning …

CalTech physicists propose an innovative new experiment to detect dark matter

Since the 1980s, researchers have been experimenting with the search for particles that make up dark matter, an invisible substance that permeates our galaxy and universe. Embossed dark matter because it emits no light. It has been shown repeatedly that this substance, which makes up more than 80 percent of the matter in our universe, influences ordinary matter through its …
