One of those labels is Fact Check, which...

Did A Comet Cause The Famous WOW Signal

An astronomer thinks he’s pinpointed the source of a mysterious radio signal from space: a passing comet that nobody knew about. But his colleagues said they’re still skeptical of the explanation, noting that comets don’t emit radio waves in the right way. Antonio Paris, an astronomer at St. Petersburg College in Florida, recently published a paper in the Journal of the Washington Academy of Sciences saying the mysterious “Wow! signal,” a truly bizarre radio signal detected...

Can Quantum Entanglement Stop Hacking

Can Quantum Entanglement Stop Hacking

A Chinese satellite has split pairs of “entangled photons” and transmitted them to separate ground stations 745 miles (1,200 kilometers) apart, smashing the previous distance record for such a feat and opening new possibilities in quantum communication. In quantum physics, when particles interact with each other in certain ways they become “entangled.” This essentially means they remain connected even when separated by large distances, so that an action performed on one affects...

Twitter Detects Crime Faster Than Police, Says Researchers

Social media may be a useful tool in helping law enforcement maintain peace and order. Twitter can identify riots and other violent activities minutes or even over an hour before the police are notified, according to a study released Tuesday by Cardiff University. Researchers at Cardiff University analysed 1.6 million tweets relevant to the 2011 London riots. In the town of Enfield, police received reports of disorder an hour and 23 minutes after computer systems could have picked up the same information...

Is Light Speed Really Slow

Is Light Speed Really Slow

In 2015, a team of Scottish scientists announced they had found a way to slow the speed of light. By sending photons through a special mask, the researchers altered their shape. In this malformed state, these infinitesimal particles of light traveled slower than normal photons. The difference in speed was almost imperceptible, but the accomplishment itself was stunning! At 299,792,458 meters per second, the speed of light has stood as an unbreakable, unchangeable speed limit. No longer. But why would...
