In February 2001 an eruption from the Surt volcano on the Jupiter-facing hemisphere of Io, the volcanic epi-center of our solar system, occurred with an estimated output of 78,000 Gigawatts. By comparison, the 1992 eruption of Mt Etna, Sicily, was... Continue reading

"So far, people have focused on binary neutron stars as a way of measuring the Hubble constant with gravitational waves," says Salvatore Vitale, assistant professor of physics at MIT. "We've shown there is another type of gravitational wave source which... Continue reading

"A hyper-advanced civilization might raid other galaxies for stars to keep the Milky Way glowing for trillions of years. Over a period of billions of years our progeny could secure many trillions of stars that would have otherwise fallen victim... Continue reading

"In retrospect, perhaps that ever-expanding gap between Californian dreams and American realities led to the undoing of Silicon Valley. Its detachment from the lives and concerns of ordinary Americans can be seen today in the unhinged Twitter rants of Space... Continue reading

“The stakes are high because if the signal is real, this experiment is worth two Nobel prizes,” says astronomer Abraham Loeb of Harvard University. “One for being first to detect the 21 cm signal from the cosmic dawn and the... Continue reading

Minerals deep inside Earth might contain telltale traces of collisions with dark matter — the elusive stuff that researchers think makes up most of the matter in the Universe. Experiments designed to search for these traces could one day complement... Continue reading

A newly discovered quasar's light has been traveling nearly 13 billion of the universe's 13.7 billion years to reach us here in Earth. P352-15 is the first quasar with clear evidence of radio jets seen within the first billion years... Continue reading

The human species has been transmitting radio waves for only about 80 years, so our radio waves cover less than 0.001 percent of the Milky Way. Electromagnetic signals (blue circles shown below) from alien civilizations will continue traveling through the... Continue reading

This invisible, mysterious substance is by far the most dominant aspect of any galaxy. Finding a galaxy without any dark matter is completely unexpected; it challenges standard ideas of how galaxies work. There is no theory that predicts this type... Continue reading

The Smoot-Hawley Tariff imposed by the U.S. in 1930 slapped 20 percent tariffs on 20,000 kinds of imported products mostly from Europe. It set off a wave of trade protectionism. Global trade fell by about two-thirds in four years during... Continue reading

Earlier this week, NASA’s Kepler team received an indication that the spacecraft fuel tank is running very low. NASA has placed the spacecraft, which has discovered 70 percent of the 3,750 exoplanets known to date, in a hibernation-like state in... Continue reading
