What’s Up: October 2020 Skywatching Tips from NASA

Posted by in category: space

There’s a reason our Perseverance rover and other missions left Earth for Mars recently: the two planets are close together right now. For those of us still on the ground, this also means Mars will be gorgeous in the sky this month. See more at: http://go.nasa.gov/34hp376

For the First Time Ever, Scientists Caught Time Crystals Interacting

Posted by in categories: computing, quantum physics, time travel

That’s big news for the most mysterious phase of matter—and maybe physics as we know it.


For the first time, scientists have observed an interaction of a rare and baffling form of matter called time crystals. The crystals look at a glance like “regular” crystals, but they have a relationship to time that both intrigues and puzzles scientists because of its unpredictability. Now, experts say they could have applications in quantum computing.“regular” crystals, but they have a relationship to time that both intrigues and puzzles scientists because of its unpredictability.

Did NASA detect a hint of life on Venus in 1978 and not realize it?

Posted by in category: alien life

O,.o.


Pioneer 13 dropped a probe through Venus’s clouds 42 years ago. A reexamination of that probe’s data reveals faint signatures that may turn out to be the earliest signs of life on the inhospitable planet.

Tests Confirm That Germany’s Massive Nuclear Fusion Machine Really Works

Posted by in category: nuclear energy

At the end of 2015, Germany switched on a new type of massive nuclear fusion reactor for the first time, and it was successfully able to contain a scorching hot blob of helium plasma.

But since then, there’s been a big question — is the device working the way it’s supposed to? That’s pretty crucial when you’re talking about a machine that could potentially maintain controlled nuclear fusion reactions one day, and thankfully, the answer is yes.

New Website Lets You Help NASA Find Alien Worlds

Posted by in categories: information science, robotics/AI, space

NASA just launched a new citizen science project — it wants the public’s help to find and identify brand new exoplanets.


Human Touch

This is the sort of work that technically could be automated with an algorithm trained to spot new worlds, Space.com reports. But it turns out that in this case, there’s no substitute for human judgment.
