Quantum physics is a fascinating yet complicated subject to understand, and one of the things that freaks out physics students every is the concept of entanglement. That occurs when physicists attempt to measure the state of a particle and that affects the state of another particle instantly. (In reality, the particles are in multiple states — spinning in multiple directions, for example — and can only be said to be in one state or another when they are measured.)
Two tiny, cube-shaped research satellites hitched a ride to Earth orbit to validate new hardware and software technologies for future NASA Earth-observing instruments.
Being productive is a skill which can be learned. By adopting the following habits, you, too, may learn how to better utilize your resources and become more productive.
First Folding Space Telescope aims to “break the glass ceiling” of traditional designs. MOIRE program creates first-ever images using lightweight membrane optics, which could help redefine how we build, launch and use orbital telescopes.
These images might resemble a planetary surface but actually show a different kind of alien environment: a microscopic view across a damaged laser lens, down to the nanometre level – a millionth of a millimetre, smaller than most individual bacteria.
The fun and challenge of exoplanet science is the planets are so far away and so tiny. Figuring out what they look like isn’t as simple as just pointing a telescope and observing. This new video from NASA explains how astronomers use the parent star to figure out the planet’s size, mass, atmosphere and more
Scientists using MRI imaging to scan the brains of young men and women, find out that female brains are designed to carry out many tasks simultaneously. Male brains are designed to make them better at carrying out single tasks.
Why should you be concerned about nanoparticles, and what are they anyway? You are probably being exposed to these extremely small particles every day and are unaware of their consequences. But is something so small really that scary? Scientists say the answer may be yes.
Two black holes in the middle of a galaxy are gravitationally bound to each other and may be starting to merge, according to a new study.
The radiation-heavy Van Allen Belts around Earth contain particles that can move at almost the speed of light across vast distances, new research reveals. The information came from an instrument flown aboard the Van Allen Probes twin NASA spacecraft, which launched in 2012.
If you live in the southern hemisphere, the southern sky constellation of Centaurus may look a little different to you tonight, as a bright nova has been identified in the region early this week.
An artificial heart containing miniaturised space technology will soon beat inside a person, having now been approved for human trials in France.
NASA’s Cassini spacecraft has obtained the highest-resolution movie yet of a unique six-sided jet stream, known as the hexagon, around Saturn’s north pole.
China successfully launched its first ever lunar rover bound for the Moon’s surface aboard a Long March rocket today at 1:30 a.m. Beijing local time, Dec. 2, 2013 (12:30 p.m. EST, Dec. 1) from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center in southwest China.
Scientists have used satellite observations to create a set of high-resolution 3D maps of the entire Great Barrier Reef – a critical step towards identifying, managing and protecting what lies beneath the waters.
