Astronomers Find Stretched Alien Planets

As scientists ramp up the search for Earth-size planets outside our solar system, one team says it’s possible that “stretched-out” rocky exoplanets could be found orbiting close to their parent stars. These exoplanets would be extremely hot, bent out of shape by the gravitational pull of their parent stars and likely inhospitable to life. But studying these worlds could shed light on the internal structure of rocky planets, researchers said. “Imagine taking a planet like the...

What Is Going On With Jupiter’s Moon Europa?

December 30, 2014 by   | Category: Around The Net

The huge geysers on Jupiter’s icy moon Europa have gone underground. Late last year, scientists announced that NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope had detected plumes of water vapor spewing about 120 miles (200 kilometers) into space from Europa’s south pole in December 2012. The news was met with a great deal of excitement, as it suggested that a robotic probe may be able to sample Europa’s possibly life-supporting subsurface ocean without touching down. The researchers have trained...

Did The Horsehead Nebula Nebula Disappear?

One of the most well-known nebulas of the night sky — the Horsehead nebula — all but disappears in a new infrared NASA image. In the new photo, captured by NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope, the shadowy Horsehead nebula loses its distinctive shape because of the infrared light wavelength used to make the image penetrates cosmic dust. It is that dust that gives the Horsehead nebula its “horse’s head” shape. Without that telltale dust, only a “wispy arc” remains of...

However, the panels are getting cheaper and shipments are expected to pick up fast. FutureSource Consulting found that growth remains slow in Europe, but there’s movement in other parts of the world. “4K adoption is forecast to grow...

Astronomers Try To Dissect A Supernova

Astronomers have spotted a new object emerging from the ashes of a recently deceased star. The stellar post-mortem, which is recounted in two new videos, may also solve a mystery surrounding the unexpected shape of the star’s explosive remains, scientists say. In February 1987, astronomers saw a new point of light appear in the sky: a supernova explosion, roughly 150,000 light-years from Earth. A massive star had reached the end of its fuel supply and gone down in a blaze of glory. Since then,...

Stanford University Begins Study On Artificial Intelligence

Stanford university is inviting artificial intelligence researchers, roboticists and other scientists to participate in what it is calling the One Hundred Year Study on Artificial Intelligence (AI100). Scientists will consider how machines that perceive, learn and reason will affect the way people live, work and communicate. “If your goal is to create a process that looks ahead 30 to 50 to 70 years, it’s not altogether clear what artificial intelligence will mean, or how you would study...

U.S. Postal Pins Hopes On E-commerce

Dealing with a decline in the mail it has been delivering since the days of America’s Revolutionary War, in 2012 the U.S. Postal Service began aggressively targeting e-commerce and lapsed customers as the way to salvage its slumping business. “Really it started almost at the level of cold-calling, talking to people who really hadn’t spoken to us in a long time,” said Nagisa Manabe, who joined the USPS in May 2012 as chief marketing and sales officer from Coca-Cola Co after...
