Hubble House Telescope Spots Triple-Star Arrangement in Taurus

The Hubble team has released a stunning image taken by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope of the triple-star star system HP Tau. HP Tau, a trio of dazzling stars some 550 light-years away in the constellation of Taurus, blaze brilliantly from the hollowed-out cavity of a reflection nebula in the new Hubble image.

Killer Whales Take Single Breath between Dives, Marine Scientists Verify

To gather information on the animals’ habits, University of British Columbia’s Professor Andrew Trites and his colleagues used drone footage and biological data from tags suction-cupped to 11 northern and southern resident killer whales (Orcinus orca) off the coast of British Columbia in Queen Charlotte Sound, Queen Charlotte Strait, Johnstone Strait, and Juan de Fuca

Webb Detects Ongoing Merger of Two Supermassive Unlit Holes in Early Universe

Astronomers using the NASA/ESA/CSA James Webb Space Telescope have found evidence for an ongoing merger of two galaxies and their central black holes — a galaxy system dubbed ZS7 — when the Universe was just 740 million years old. This image shows the location of the galaxy system ZS7. Image credit: NASA / ESA /

Researchers Point out Thermal Trapping of Solar Radiation at 1,922 Levels Fahrenheit

With the world focusing on decarbonizing electricity and transportation, abating emissions from industrial process heat remain the elephant in the room. Using solar energy is an attractive alternative, but current solar converters show poor performance and high costs when process temperatures above 1,000 degrees Celsius (1,832 degrees Fahrenheit) are required. In a new work, scientists

Earth-Sized Exoplanet Chanced on Orbiting Nearby Ultracool Pink Dwarf

Ultracool dwarf stars are widespread in the solar neighborhood. Nevertheless, their extremely low brightness has left their planetary population largely unexplored, and only one of them, TRAPPIST-1, has been found to host a transiting planetary system, until now. Astronomers with the SPECULOOS (Search for Planets EClipsing ULtra-cOOl Stars) project have now detected an Earth-sized planet

Hubble Home Telescope Makes a speciality of Center of NGC 4753

NGC 4753 is featured with a bright white core and surrounding defined dust lanes around its nucleus. This Hubble image shows part of NGC 4753, a lenticular galaxy some 60 million light-years away in the constellation of Virgo. Image credit: NASA / ESA / Hubble / L. Kelsey. NGC 4753 is located approximately 60 million

Cease to-Crumple of Geomagnetic Field Could doubtless furthermore Non-public Contributed to Diversification of Lifestyles on Earth

An ultra-weak geomagnetic field between 591 and 565 million years ago (Ediacaran period) coincided with a significant increase in the oxygen levels in the atmosphere and oceans, says a research team led by University of Rochester geoscientists. Earth’s magnetic field was in a highly unusual state when macroscopic animals of the Ediacara Fauna diversified and

Original Species of Pseudoscorpion Discovered Preserved in 50-Million-Year-Ragged Amber

Paleontologists have described a new genus and species of fossil pseudoscorpion from the Eocene-period Cambay amber of Western India. Geogaranya valiyaensis. Image credit: Agnihotri et al., doi: 10.26879/1276. Pseudoscorpions are an order of the earliest arthropods that colonized the landmass of the Earth during the Early Devonian epoch. This diversified order occupies more than 3%
