Scientists detected an invisible shield roughly 7,200 miles above the Earth’s surface that is protecting us from harmful, super-fast electrons flying close to the speed of light.

It may sound like Star Trek tech, but this mysterious protective barrier isn’t science fiction. The findings, described in the journal Nature, could help scientists better understand the complex dynamics of the Van Allen radiation belts.

Beroa kanporatzeaz gain eguzkiaren erradiazioa ia erabat islatzen duen material berri bat sortu dute Stanford Unibertsitateko ingeniariek. Materialak ez du energia beharrik horretarako, eta eraginkorra izan liteke erakinak hozteko.Naturen aurkeztu duten prototipoa gai da inguruko tenperatura baino 5 ºC gutxiagora hozteko.

The Square Kilometre Array (SKA) will be made up of an unprecedented number of antennae spread across two continents for the first time (Australia and Africa). The SKA will see the radio sky with unprecedented sensitivity and resolution, enabling us to pick up extremely small and faint objects and probe the more distant universe. It is due to come online around 2023.

To put it in perspective, astronomers anticipate that it will produce as much as ten times the data as global internet traffic. Radio astronomical imaging therefore urgently needs to be re-invented in this ultra-precision and big data context.

¿Tu perro obedece inmediatamente a una orden y responde por su nombre? Aunque muchos dirían que su mejor amigo entiende todo, lo que en realidad hace el cerebro canino es diferenciar entre los sonidos del habla y la manera de expresarse. Según un nuevo estudio, el can atiende no solo a la persona que le da la orden y cómo se la da, sino también a lo que le dice.

Molecular signatures hint at who will benefit from next-generation cancer drugs.

A team led by researchers at the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) in Frederick, Maryland, has used genetically engineered cows to produce large amounts of human antibodies against hantavirus, an often deadly disease mainly transmitted from rodents to people
