Identical photons have a distance of 150 million kilometers

Enlarge / Nearby source of quantum photons. By the middle of the 20th century the light was quite ordinary. Yes, it was both a particle and a wave, but it did not do anything very strange. Then scientists underemployed after the end of World War II began to pay more attention to the properties of light. This was partly due …

102ft NEO will be 1.6 million kilometers from Earth tomorrow

The NASA Center for Near-Earth Object Studies (CNEOS) has discovered a massive asteroid that is now expected to pass dangerously close to Earth. Asteroids approaching the planet at very close range pose a threat to the Earth due to the gravitational forces acting on them. The approaching asteroid was designated NASA's 2019 MT2. According to the Space Agency, this near-Earth …

Massive earthquake reveals mountains 660 kilometers below us

Earthquakes and particularly massive earthquakes bring fear into our hearts and sympathy for those who are exposed to them. In this case, a massive earthquake produced a new discovery about our planet. SEE ALSO: TOP 5 EARTHQUAKE RESISTANT STRUCTURES WORLDWIDE Some Princeton geophysicists in collaboration with Sidao from the Institute of Geodesy and Geophysics in China investigated data from an …

The Bolivian earthquake of 1994 reveals 660 kilometers under our feet mountains

Most schoolchildren learn that the earth has three (or four) layers: crust, mantle and core, sometimes divided into an inner and outer core. This is not wrong, but it leaves out several other layers that scientists have identified within the Earth, including the transition zone within the mantle. Jessica Irving of Princeton worked with graduate student Wenbo Wu and another …

Massive Bolivian earthquake exposes mountains 660 kilometers below our feet

Sessisologist Jessica Irving, an Assistant Professor of Earth Sciences, is sitting with two meteorites from the Princeton University collection that contain iron, presumably from inside Planetsimals. Irving uses seismology to examine the interior of our own planet. Recently, he found mountain topography roughness at the 660km boundary at the base of the mantle's transitional zone.
