Spotify Inching Closer To A Deal With Warner Music

Did The Dow Jones Cloud Server Leak Personal Data

A security Company called Upguard has exposed a problem with a Dow Jones server that partially exposed the details of as many as 4 million people. This is bad news for Dow Jones and its punters. UpGuard suggests that there was some oversight in the setting up of the weak point, which could have been avoided. If it has been avoided a lot of people might be the sole owners of their own email addresses and some of their credit card details unmolested. “The UpGuard Cyber Risk Team can now report...

Are ‘Super-Earth’ Alien Planets Carving Up Planet-Forming Disks

NASA’s Kepler space telescope and other instruments have revealed the existence of thousands of alien planets. Most of them are “super-Earths” — rocky worlds with Earth- to Neptune-size masses.  But the existence of so many super-Earths seems to contradict astronomers’ understanding of planet formation. Indeed, observations of newborn solar systems show features that seem to need the presence of more massive gas giants like Jupiter. Scientists may have just solved that...

Astronomers Detect Weird Radio Signal From Red Dwarf

Strange radio signals have been spotted coming from the vicinity of a nearby star — but don’t get your hopes up that aliens are responsible. On May 12, the 1,000-foot-wide (305 meters) Arecibo radio telescope in Puerto Rico detected “some very peculiar signals” apparently emanating from Ross 128, a red dwarf star that lies just 11 light-years from Earth. “The signals consisted of broadband quasi-periodic nonpolarized pulses with very strong dispersion-like features,”...

Such mud balls could still exist today in the heart of the largest asteroids, according to the study. More than 75 percent of known asteroids are carbonaceous in composition; these grayish asteroids probably consist of clay and stony rocks, and inhabit the main belt’s outer regions One key reason scientists investigate carbonaceous...

Did Astronomers Find More Evidence That Planet 9 Exist

A new salvo has been fired in the back-and-forth debate about the existence of Planet Nine. In 2014, astronomers Scott Sheppard and Chadwick Trujillo suggested that a giant unseen “perturber” may lurk in the far outer solar system. The duo based this hypothesis on peculiarities in the orbits of the dwarf planet Sedna, the newfound object 2012 VP113 and several other bodies beyond the orbit of Neptune (trans-Neptunian objects, or TNOs). The case grew in January 2016, when astronomers Konstantin...
