Ridgecrest earthquakes show how small disturbances can trigger large quakes

When an earthquake occurs, many Californians have to ask themselves: what mistake has been made – the Newport-Inglewood, the Hayward, the mighty San Andreas? But scientists are increasingly saying that it's not that easy. New research shows that the Ridgecrest earthquakes that started in July caused at least two dozen faults. This is the latest evidence of how small faults …

A small meteor shower will explode in a burst of falling stars

A meteor explosion is a rare kind of light show. NASA / ISAS / Shinsuke Abe and Hajime Yano Perhaps you know the Perseids the Taurids the Orionids themselves the Draconids, but the alpha-monocerotids are by far not the most well-known the many annual meteor showers.

New class of small black holes discovered in the Milky Way

The black holes discovered by scientists are located in a certain area of ​​the mass: about five to fifteen times that of our sun. However, this area of ​​mass could exist because of the methods that scientists currently use to detect black holes. In a new article published in Science researchers describe a new method for finding black holes. Scientists …

Astronomers find evidence of small black holes hiding in sight

Ohio State University researchers have published a new study describing the possible existence of a new class of black holes smaller than the currently known black hole in the universe. The discovery of a new class would help astronomers in their mission to find and catalog black holes, ultimately improving our understanding of the universe around us. Black holes are …

These rats drive small cars – for science

If you give a cookie a cookie, she will ask for milk. And if you give a rat a tiny electric car, she'll use it to pick up Froot Loops. You can thank Kelly Lambert, a behavioral neuroscientist at the University of Richmond, for training rats to use custom "rat-powered vehicles" (after all, Amazon does not just let you order …

Scientists take small steps towards alien babies

In February, Spanish pilot Daniel González climbed aboard a small aerobatics aircraft at Sabadell airport outside of Barcelona and lit his single-prop engine. As soon as he was in the air, Gonzalez made a steep ascent for about six seconds before plunging into a dive. The plane's rapid descent created a microgravity environment in the cockpit, and for a few …

How small is the smallest habitable exoplanet? | space

<! – -> The residential area, as it is traditionally understood. New evidence suggests that rocky planets that are smaller than the Earth may still have liquid water, even if they are just outside the primary living zone of a star. Picture via NASA / Astronomy Now. What makes a planet potentially habitable? Life, as we know it, requires, among …
