Unconfirmed reports suggest that Russia has developed a next-generation stealth bomber that can attack from space.
Apple Music's matching feature will now use audio fingerprinting rather than metadata, potentially resolving one of the service's biggest problems.
The Earth is adrift in a sea of mystery particles, which we would like to see. The LUX experiment, our most sensitive eye, has just reported back. What have we learned?
We know that billions of unseen particles pass through us every moment. We are bathed in neutrinos from the Sun, and in low-energy photons left over from the Big Bang. Both types of particle are vital ingredients in our understanding of physics and the universe, and both have been measured – eventually – by highly specialised detectors.
But there’s more. Or at least we think there is. The way galaxies move, and the way light bends as it travels to us across space from far distant clusters, indicate that there is more material there than we can see. We call it “dark matter”, though as Lisa Randall says in her recent book, it might better be called “transparent matter”, since apart from the slight bending caused by gravity, light passes right through it.Continue reading...
A global agreement on cutting the use of hydrofluorocarbons — potent greenhouse gases used in aerosols, refrigerants and air conditioning — seems within grasp, delegates said on Sunday after 10 days of talks on climate change in Vienna.
Small-scale study that injected stem cells into patients’ hearts during surgery offers hope to those with cardiac disease
People suffering from heart disease have been offered hope by a new study that suggests damaged tissue could be regenerated through a stem cell treatment injected into the heart during surgery.
The small-scale study, published in the Journal of Cardiovascular Translational Research, followed 11 patients who during bypass surgery had stem cells injected into their hearts near the site of tissue scars caused by heart attacks.Continue reading...
