Researchers at MIT have figured out how to make chips faster without piling on more code. They have managed this with a chip design called Swarm that makes running programs across processors with multiple cores more efficient and easier to write. It involved some pretty complex stuff, so grab a tea, pop some Aspirins and drown out your colleagues’ chatter as we try to explain. MIT said that a program running on 64-core processors should, in theory, be 64 times faster than it would be on a single-core...

A distant, Neptune-size planet 500 light-years from Earth appears to be the youngest fully formed exoplanet ever found crossing its star, raising questions about how it formed so close, so quickly. Researchers first found the planet, which whisks around its star every five days, using the Kepler space telescope currently orbiting Earth. Its star is only 5 million to 10 million years old, suggesting that the planet is a similar age — incredibly young, on a cosmic scale. Researchers said it was...
