Stingray shaped probes could explore the atmosphere of Venus

University of Buffalo researchers are working on a concept in which a changing plane could explore the sky above Venus and discover its elusive "dark side". It's called BREEZE or bio-inspired beam for extreme environments and zonal exploration. Like a stingray that moves with its pectoral fins through water, this transforming probe beats its wings during the flight and holds …

"Cannonball" pulsar points to the supernova that shaped it

Pulsars are superdense neutron stars formed from massive supernovae. They can only be found if their electromagnetic radiation points directly to Earth like a nuclear lighthouse. It has been found that pulsars rotate as fast as 1.6 milliseconds or 38,500 rpm. They absorb the angular momentum of the massive stars that formed them, but are only a fraction of the …
