Will The TeraHertz Band Help Increase Wi-Fi Speeds

Researchers have worked out a way to push Wi-Fi speeds to 34 Gbps using the TeraHertz band. While greater bandwidth in the 300GHz and above band has been known for a while it is pointless because the range makes it a chocolate teapot. Some researchers have managed to hit 100 Gbps but when it only works for a few centimetres it is not commercially viable. Now boffins at the Tokyo Institute of Technology have got the technology to provide a great 34 Gbps speed with a decent range. Naoto Oshimo, one...

Astronomers Solve Galaxy Mystery

A decades-old galactic mystery has just been solved — new research has revealed why a distant galaxy has brightened and dimmed like a flickering candle flame over the last 30 years.  The galaxy, known as Markarian 1018, is considered an “active galaxy,” meaning it has an extremely bright core called an “active galactic nucleus” (AGN). Even though AGNs take up a relatively small fraction of space, the light from some of them can outshine the light from all the stars in their...
