Is A Mysterious Cosmic Light Powering Alien Spaceships?

Bizarre flashes of cosmic light may actually be generated by advanced alien civilizations, as a way to accelerate interstellar spacecraft to tremendous speeds, a new study suggests. Astronomers have catalogued just 20 or so of these brief, superbright flashes, which are known as fast radio bursts (FRBs), since the first one was detected in 2007. FRBs seem to be coming from galaxies billions of light-years away, but what’s causing them remains a mystery. “Fast radio bursts are exceedingly...

Kepler Beams Raw Data From TRAPPIST-1

Scientists, have at it: NASA has released raw data from the Kepler Space Telescope probing the many Earth-size planets around the star TRAPPIST-1.

Kepler’s observations could provide more detail about...

Porsche Turns To Digital Services For Possible Revenue Bump

Porsche will invest hundreds of millions  in digital services to generate profits needed to offset an expected decline in car sales in the coming years, its finance chief said on Friday. Growing demand for ride-hailing and car-sharing will make the part-time use of vehicles, including Porsches, as convenient as ownership in seven to 10 years and that could dent new car sales, Porsche CFO Lutz Meschke said. “To compensate for this decline, we have no choice but to develop new business models...

Will Scientist Create The Coldest Spot In The Universe?

The International Space Station (ISS) will soon host the coldest spot in the entire universe, if everything goes according to plan. This August, NASA plans to launch to the ISS an experiment that will freeze atoms to only 1 billionth of a degree above absolute zero — more than 100 million times colder than the far reaches of deep space, agency officials said. The instrument suite, which is about the size of an ice chest, is called the Cold Atom Laboratory (CAL). It consists of lasers, a vacuum...

Is Pluto Planet Status Gaining Steam?

Pluto’s “demotion” to a dwarf planet back in 2006 is still a touchy subject, even among scientists. When you account for the fact that astronomers, who study stars and black holes, were the ones who decided on the definition of a planet that resulted in Pluto’s declassification, it’s understandable that various planetary scientists don’t even want to talk about it. “It’s often like bringing up politics and religion in polite conversation,” said...

Was Visa Hacked?

Thank you very much for the Aintree Iron. Card holders with Visa credit cards have been hacked today, although the extent of the hack is not yet known.

However, newer sensors to detect gunshot sounds that are being tested by L.A. are smaller, about 1.5 inches in diameter,...
