The influx of data from Gaia's latest data release (DR3), has enabled astronomers such as CCA's Adrian Price-Whelan to uncover critical new knowledge about the Milky Way galaxy's movements.
After a three-year shutdown for repairs and upgrades, the collider has resumed shooting protons around its 17-mile electromagnetic underground racetrack. In early July, the collider will begin crashing these particles together to create sparks of primordial energy.
The observations from the European Space Agency’s Gaia probe cover almost two billion stars — about 1 percent of the total number in the galaxy — and are allowing astronomers to reconstruct our home galaxy’s structure and find out how it has evolved over billions of years.
New numerical simulations have brought scientists a step closer to modeling the phenomenon of toppling dominoes by untangling the influence of two types of friction — one between neighboring dominoes and the other between each domino and the surface beneath it.
NASA’s effort will be led by Simons Foundation President David Spergel and Daniel Evans of NASA’s science mission directorate, and would examine observations of events that cannot be identified as aircraft or known natural phenomena.
On certain types of machine learning tasks, quantum computers have an exponential advantage over standard computation, researchers report in Science. And the team showed that the advantage holds up in real-world tests.
Time crystals were long believed to be impossible because their perpetual motion would seem to defy the laws of physics. However, using quantum physics scientists have not only created time crystals, but they have also now shown that they have the potential to power useful devices in the future.
