New lens for life search in space telescopes

August 6, 2019

The University of Arizona Mirror Laboratory Richard F. Karis is the world leader in manufacturing the largest telescope mirror in the world. In fact, he is currently designing a mirror for the largest and most sophisticated telescope in the world – the giant Magellan telescope.

Astronomers find the poorest iron star in the Milky Way

August 3, 2019

An international team of astronomers has used a second generation halo of the Milky Way estimated to be 35,000 years old containing less iron than other stars found so far, only a fraction of 50 billion. These elements were created immediately after the Big Bang, while all heavier elements were eliminated from the intense heat […]

Bright star light on the search for life

August 3, 2019

Our own planet gives little motivation. Organisms fill the air with photosynthetic plants that separate oxygen methane. Possibly these gases are found wherever where life is caught. Yet, in a world that is altogether different from our alleged indications of life, we can be moved by non-organic procedures.

Supercomputers boost biomass fuel conversion

August 2, 2019

To access high-energy sugars on plant cell walls, researchers refocused on the dissolution of the lignin complex polymer which is also found in plant cell walls and acts as a natural shield against chemical and biological attacks. Lignin is very effective in preventing commercial enzymes from absorbing cellulose, which is a large part of sugar […]

A promising new solar powered way to produce hydrogen

August 2, 2019

Separation of solar water is a promising road for the renewable energy economy. Hydrogen produced can function both as a transportation fuel and an important chemical raw material for the production of fertilizers and chemicals. Water requirements are abundant resources and previously explored methods use complex routes that require polluting solvents and large amounts of […]

Nasa hubble telescope uncovers a heavy metal exoplanet in the form of soccer

August 2, 2019

NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope observations show that magnesium and iron gas flow from the foreign world outside our solar system called WASP 121b. This observation shows for the first time that so-called heavy metals heavier than hydrogen and helium were discovered by an exoplanet of large gas around its star on a flight from hot […]

Change the biology of designing next generation computers with surprising material

August 1, 2019

The number of components that can be carved on the surface of silicon wafers will double every two years. This has been discussed recently. Faster calculation of progress over the past decade has made some experts claim that Moore’s Law did not apply to the 1960s to Intel founder Gordon Moore.

Confirmation of the planet baked by TESS leads to surprising discoveries in a promising world

August 1, 2019

A new hot planet discovered by NASA’s Satellite Transit System to explore extrasolar planets leads to another world in the orbit of the same star, one of which is in a habitable zone of stars that is two times bigger than Earth’s size.

NASA’s chandra X-ray observatory celebrate its 20th anniversary with X-ray images of astrophysical objects

July 31, 2019

On July 23, 1999, the Columbia Space Shuttle exploded with the Chandra X-ray observatory from the Kennedy Space Center. In the two decades left by Chandra with her strong and unique eyes, X-rays have revolutionized our understanding of the cosmos.

Artificial cells that can perceive and respond to their environment

July 30, 2019

Artificial cells can be used to detect and respond to changes in the body by separating drug molecules or for detecting and removing harmful metals in the environment. Chemical change reactions are important functions of biological cells. For example, cells can respond to chemicals by forming certain proteins that stimulate energy production or are self-destructive.
