Scientists have noted that perhaps our universe is either very close to collapse or it has already started collapsing bringing it closer to its end.
Journal of High Energy Physics
Astronomy initially showed that our universe expanded after its coming into being and they are of the opinion that after a limit of expansion, it will start to collapse but we are not sure whether this collapse will happen and if it will happen, when it will happen. Read more…
Astronomers have reported two of the newly discovered yet oldest known brown dwarfs in our Milky Way Galaxy moving at speeds of 100-200 km/sec. Read more…
Scientists have presented a new way to study Bose-Einstein condensates (BECs) that are the coldest objects in the Universe by canceling the damage caused by light. Read more…
NASA is working on materials that would be better than “smart materials”, a.k.a “genius materials”.
Smart materials are the materials that can work differently, i.e. in an unnatural way. They are not usually present in nature and are designed by scientists. One of the examples of smart materials is Corning Gorilla Glass that covers most of the smartphone screens. It is extraordinarily strong and tough.
NASA is going beyond the concept of smart materials and working on “genius materials” for International Space Station (ISS) along with different scientists. One of the ideas in genius material is that the molecules in the material would be able to self-assemble. Read more…
Scientists have found that reverse shock wave moving inward with 1000 times the speed of sound (Mach 1000) heats the Tycho’s supernova remnant resulting in the emission of X-ray light. Read more…
