"I suspect it's much easier to make a very massive black hole if there is no supernova," said researcher Krzysztof Stanek. May 25 (UPI) -- In 2015, a star tracked by astronomers since 2009, suddenly disappeared. New research suggests the star collapsed and became a black hole, but avoided the e...
It’s no secret that Apple has been collecting location data from users for years. But who knew it was so insanely detailed, or how easily it could ruin your life? The fear is real, people, because there’s a terrifying, possibly sentient map hidden deep inside your Settings menu that p...
An artist's rendering of the NASA probe approaching 16 Psyche NASA has set the date for a trip to an asteroid that could be worth “quadrillions” of dollars. The Discovery Mission will launch in summer 2022, with a planned arrival at the main asteroid belt where the space rock is located expected...
Preliminary results suggest that Jupiter may have winds at all levels creating movement. Jupiter's atmosphere features colossal cyclones and rivers of ammonia welling up from deep inside the solar system's largest planet, researchers said on Thursday, publishing the first insights from a NASA spacec...

SCIENTISTS have created a way to see through walls using Wi-Fi, leading to major privacy concerns. Boffins have developed a system to create images of a room without seeing what is actually inside it. The new technology works as Wi-Fi is not restricted to physical boundaries and has the capability t...
An illustration of a nuclear blast in a city. Shutterstock Nuclear blasts create fallout, which can harm you with large doses of radiation. Cars offer little protection from fallout. A surer way to survive in the aftermath of a nuclear explosion is to go indoors, stay put, and listen to the ra...
A slice through largest-ever three-dimensional map of the Universe. Earth can be seen on the left, and distances to galaxies and quasars are labelled by the lookback time to the objects (how long light from an object has been traveling to reach Earth). Locations of quasars are shown by the red dots,...
  Google Android will power new cars from Volvo and Audi The operating system will enable more functions than Android Auto, such as more integrated voice control and Google Assistant. Google will discuss the launch more during Google I/O this week. Google announced on Monday that new ...

Advances in cognitive neuroscience are enabling insights into the brain like never before. Neuroscientist Friederike Fabritius and Hans Hagemann, co-founder of the Munich Leadership Group, combine science with management consulting to discover which techniques for peak performance actually work, in ...
Move over Tatooine — having two suns is old news. New research shows that the closest exoplanet to Earth — Proxima b — may have just one-upped the fictional Star Wars desert world by possessing not two, but three stars as a part of its orbit....
Scientists may have found a new supernova explosion or supermassive black hole in a galaxy about 600 million light years from Earth after pointing a telescope there for the first time in a couple of decades and spotting something super bright near its center. The National Radio Astronomy O...
You’re forgiven if the name KIC 8462852 doesn’t ring a bell. It’s a far-off object, thought to be a star, which was only just discovered in late 2015, but it’s already managed to totally confuse researchers in its extremely brief stint on the scientific stage. The star has continually exhibi...
A Hubble Space Telescope image of the distant universe. Credit: NASA.   Looking up into the night sky, it's challenging enough for an amateur astronomer to count the number of naked-eye stars that are visible. With bigger telescopes, more stars become visible, making counting impossible be...
An infrared image of 47 Tucanae, a dense globular cluster of stars located roughly 16,000 light years from Earth. A new study has predicted that a black hole lies at its center. (2MASS / T. Jarrett) A new method could help scientists peer inside universe’s densest star clusters to find undisc...
Researchers believe split between chimps and humans occurred in eastern Europe, not Africa A jawbone discovered by German troops in Athens during the Second World War could be evidence that apes and humans diverged 200,000 years earlier than the current theory says. Chimpanzees and bonobos are ...
This article was originally published on The Conversation. Read the original article. They’re mysterious bursts of radio waves from space that are over in a fraction of a second. Fast Radio Bursts (FRBs) are thought to occur many thousands of times a day, but since their first detec...
The orbits of all seven Earth-size planets in the TRAPPIST-1 system are now known. Astronomers have nailed down the path of TRAPPIST-1h, the outermost planet in the system, finding that this world takes just under 19 Earth days to complete one lap around its small, faint host star.  T...
BREAKING BARRIERS With the advent of the internet, there are fewer barriers to communication than ever before. Distance has basically become negligible in terms of talking to each other. Ongoing developments have continued to make it even easier. Now, in many cases, language is no longer a barr...

An artist's impression of the exoplanet Proxima b, located just 4.2 lightyears from Earth. ESO/M. Kornmesser A second Earth may orbit our nearest neighboring star, and according to new simulations, it may be comfortable for life as we know it. Maybe. Proxima b is thought to be&n...
What does fast food have to do with interstellar travel? At first blush, not much. But halfway through the film, “The Founder,” on a grueling, recent ten hour flight, it hit me that aerospace, even NASA, might learn something from McDonald’s corporation founding CEO Ray Kroc. Three years befor...
Aimed at outdoor enthusiasts, Bing's latest updates will also surface detailed info for local campsites and campgrounds in US national parks. Bing has rolled out a new search feature aimed at hikers and campers that makes it easier to find trails and camping sites this summer. According to...
A distant star has begun exhibiting the same strange behavior that led astronomers to suggest an “alien megastructure” is orbiting it. Tabby’s Star first attracted the world’s attention last year when stargazers suggested the distinctive “blinking” of its light was caused by a gigantic s...
Brian Greene, Columbia University physicist and co-founder of the World Science Festival, explains how today's physicists and mathematicians use an Einsteinian formula to explain the universe that Einstein himself originally thought was false. ...
