As an unintended byproduct of recent technological advances, we have become less detectable by other civilizations that might exist in the Milky Way.
New research from scientists with the Flatiron Institute and Simons Collaboration on the Many Electron Problem demonstrates that a one-dimensional chain of hydrogen atoms displays a wide variety of many-body effects. These findings suggest that the chain can be a useful model system for condensed-matter physics.
The detection of a gas in the planet’s atmosphere could turn scientists’ gaze to a planet long overlooked in the search for extraterrestrial life.
Gravitational wave detections suggest merging black holes fell into ‘forbidden’ range of masses.
After centuries of misunderstanding, research has finally tied the speech disorder to certain genes and brain alterations — and new treatments may be on the horizon
