Astronomers Detect Signal Coming From the Heart of Our Galaxy

Flare Up Scientists found something peculiar coming from the center of the Milky Way galaxy: a previously-undiscovered signal they think is coming from the supermassive black hole at the heart of our galaxy. The team of Keio University researchers think that the signal is caused when the accretion disk around the black hole flares up and […]

Signal From Deep Space Perfectly Harmonizes With Elvis Song

Galactic Singalong The physicists at LIGO detected more gravitational waves. And this time, they say, the waves resonate at the perfect frequency to harmonize with an Elvis Presley song. The waves formed a perfect fifth, Science Magazine reports, meaning they sync with the opening notes of Elvis’s “Can’t Help Falling in Love.” The two notes […]

In fact, every cell in the human body has its own molecular clock, which is capable of generating a daily rise and fall in the number of many proteins the body produces over a […]

Considering the container to strengthen the weak force’s signal

Kurtis Bartlett won the 2018 JSA Thesis Prize for making measurements that helped determine the weak charge of the proton. Credit: DOE’s Jefferson Lab Nuclear physicists successfully measured the weak charge of the proton by shooting electrons at a cold liquid hydrogen target in an experiment carried out at the Department of Energy’s Thomas Jefferson […]
