3 tropical waves and a tropical storm

The National Hurricane Center oversees several areas that say they have little chance of development in the coming days, and one could be a rainmaker for Florida. The area closest to Florida is an area of ​​unorganized rainfall and thunderstorms that is currently near the north coast of Hispaniola. It has a 20 percent chance of developing over the next …

The rock that vibrates to the beat of earth, wind and waves

University of Utah scientists have conducted the first detailed seismic measurements of a columnar sandstone formation in Moab National Park, known as the Castleton Tower. The structure vibrates at two key resonant frequencies, according to a new article in the Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America (19459003). That is, it is likely to withstand low to moderate magnitude earthquakes. …

The breakthrough enables storage and release of mechanical waves without loss of energy

Experimental set-up consisting of waveguide strip with cavity and side channels. The excitation of the elastic waves propagating along the rod is by piezoelectric actuators at the two ends of the system. Picture credits: Giuseppe Trainiti, Georgia Tech Light and sound waves provide the basis for energy and signal transport, and are fundamental to some of our most basic technologies, …

Scientists discovered waves from a black hole that swallowed a neutron star

Nearly a billion years ago, a black hole seems to have eaten a dead star – "like Pac-Man," said Susan Scott, a physicist at the Australian National University. Scott's team believes that the waves in the spacetime of this event, also known as gravitational waves, have just reached Earth. Such disturbances were first theorized by Albert Einstein, who in 1915 …

Gravitational waves could better represent the rate of expansion of the universe than anything else

In recent years, scientists have been split into two sides, each of which attempts to measure the rate of expansion of the universe using another model. A third method with gravitational waves could provide more data and end the war. Gravitational waves are small temporal and spatial waves. They were observed in 2015 using the Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory …

Black hole devouring star: Scientists believe to have discovered a black hole that swallows a neutron star, resulting in waves in space and time

About 900 million years ago, a black hole probably swallowed a dead star. Last week, the resulting waves in space and time were finally discovered on Earth. If these scientific observations are confirmed, the cosmic collision would be the first example of a collision of a black hole with a neutron star, potentially providing new insights into the matter's expansion …

Black hole devours neutron star and causes waves in space and time

This is an artist's impression of a black hole that is about to swallow a neutron star. Detectors reported this possible event on August 14. The image of this artist shows LHS 3844b, a nearby rocky exoplanet. It is 1.3 times Earth's mass and is orbiting a cool M dwarf star. The surface of the planet is probably dark and …
