Perimeter Associate Faculty member Matthew Johnson and his colleagues are working to bring the multiverse hypothesis, which to some sounds like a fanciful tale, firmly into the realm of testable science.
Scientists are working to bring the multiverse hypothesis, which to some sounds like a fanciful tale, firmly into the realm of testable science. Never mind the Big Bang; in the beginning was the vacuum. The vacuum simmered with energy (variously called dark energy, vacuum energy, the inflation field, or the Higgs field). Like water in a pot, this high energy began to evaporate -- bubbles formed.
Scientists have found a successful way of identifying bird sounds from large audio collections, which could be useful for expert and amateur bird-watchers alike.
A new method of decoding bird songs from large sets of recordings could help both expert and amateur bird-watchers identify which birds are present, researchers say.
Experts told a Senate hearing Wednesday that key American national-security space missions could be delayed by four to six years if Russia decides to cut off its supply of RD-180 rocket engines.

Released in 2010, Microsoft's Kinect was designed as an add-on for Microsoft gaming consoles. But thanks to amateur Windows developers, it has since then been used for applications as varied as musical performance and analyzing CAT scans. What innovations will developers think up for this new version?
Yahoo's hopes for renewed stardom on the Internet stage are being pinned on a song.
A new unmanned military space plane is being developed to launch small satellites into orbit and serve as a test bed for a futuristic fleet of hypersonic vehicles.

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) -- A federal appeals court on Monday cleared the path for seismic testing off the coast of New Jersey that will blast the floor of the Atlantic Ocean with loud noises as part of a climate change research project....
New research in 7- and 11-month-old infants shows that speech sounds stimulate areas of the brain that coordinate and plan motor movements for speech. The study suggests that baby brains start laying down the groundwork of how to form words long before they actually begin to speak.

Civil liberties campaigners began a legal challenge Monday against the alleged use of mass surveillance programmes by the British intelligence services, in what they said were historic public hearings sparked by the Snowden leaks.
The inability to ignore irrelevant stimuli underlies the impaired working memory and cognition often experienced by individuals diagnosed with schizophrenia, reports a new study. Our brains are usually good at focusing on the information that we are trying to learn and filtering out the “noise” or thoughts that aren’t relevant. However, memory impairment in schizophrenia may be related in part to a problem with this filtering process, which medical researchers have recently studied.
Google announced Tuesday that it was buying the music streaming start-up Songza. The acquisition marks another example of the increasing dominance of streaming services in the world of digital music.
