Did Scientist Discover Solar Neutrinos?

Tiny particles forged in the heart of the sun have been detected for the first time, offering scientists a glimpse into the nuclear fusion core of our closest star. The subatomic particles, called neutrinos, are hallmarks of the dominant fusion process insidethe sun. Created in the first step of a reaction sequence responsible for the majority of the sun’s fusion, the particles have long eluded detection. Now, an international collaboration of more than 100 scientists working with the Borexino...

New IBM Power System 8 Range Enroute

Doug Balog General Manager of IBM Power Systems has hinted that biggish blue is about to release a new range of power 8 servers. Talking to Server Watch Balog said that the strategy for accelerating Power is by using the OpenPower Foundation, which currently has over 50 members. IBM recently shed its x86 industry-standard server business in a deal with Lenovo. As a result, instead of being an Intel server partner, IBM is now mostly a competitor. Balog’s thinks that an open approach is now...

Do White Dwarfs Hold The Key To Supernova Explosions?

Supernovas, the most powerful stellar explosions in the universe, may result from catastrophic nuclear explosions on dead stars, new research shows. Scientists had long theorized that such nuclear events cause some supernovas, but now researchers finally have direct evidence. A supernova shines brightly enough to briefly outshine all the stars in its galaxy, making it visible from halfway across the universe. Such explosions are rare, only occurring within each galaxy about every 100 years. For decades,...

Did Scientist Discover Microbial Life Inside A Martian Rock?

Scientists have found a strange structure resembling a microbial cell inside a Martian meteorite, but they’re not claiming that it’s evidence of Red Planet life. The researchers discovered the microscopic oval object within the Nakhla Mars meteorite, which fell to Earth in Egypt in 1911. While the structure’s appearance is intriguing, it most likely formed as a result of geological rather than biological processes, team members said. “The consideration of possible biotic scenarios...

Does The NSA Have A “Bing” Like Search Engine?

National Security Agency (NSA) has its own homegrown search engine that it offers to similarly minded US intelligence outfits. Website the Intercept was first to report this and attributes its news to information provided by whistleblowers. It said that the search engine is shared with a number of other US organisations and institutions. The search tool is called ICREACH, according to the report, and has been available and in use for some years. Documents gathered by the Intercept show the system...

Does Microbial Life Here Bold Well For Alien Life Discovery?

The discovery of a complex microbial ecosystem far beneath the Antarctic ice may be exciting, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that life teems on frigid worlds throughout the solar system, researcher’s caution. Scientists announced today (Aug. 20) in the journal Nature that many different types of microbes live in subglacial Lake Whillans, a body of fresh water entombed beneath 2,600 feet (800 meters) of Antarctic ice. Many of the micro-organisms in these dark depths apparently get their...

Does Nintendo Need To Offer Third Party Developers More Support?

Along with publishing some rather good games, Ubisoft has quietly been developing another important role over the past few years. Thanks to the outspoken nature of CEO Yves Guillemot and the company’s careful balancing of enthusiasm for new technologies and platforms with a decent degree of financial and management conservatism, Ubisoft has become a bellwether for the publishing industry. Perhaps a difference between French and American business culture plays a role, perhaps not; either way,...

Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber in May “asked the state attorney general to take legal action against” Oracle to get its money. The complaint from the state of Oregon is vicious. It said that over the last three...

Is Europa The Best Bet For Alien Life?

Jupiter’s moon Europa doesn’t look like a particularly inviting place for life to thrive; the icy satellite is nearly 500 million miles (800 million kilometers) from the sun, on average. But beneath its icy crust lies a liquid ocean with more water than Earth contains. This ocean is shielded from harmful radiation, making Europa one of the solar system’s best bets to host alien life. That’s one of the reasons Europa is so alluring to scientists. It has all the elements thought...
