Hold Onto Your Brain: There Might Be Twice as Many Supermassive Black Holes in the Universe

A new discovery has potentially doubled the number of supermassive black holes that astronomers thought existed in our Universe. Supermassive black holes were traditionally thought to be at the centre … Continue reading Hold Onto Your Brain: There Might Be Twice as Many Supermassive Black Holes in the Universe

Licensed under CCBY-SA3.0 Asian elephants are able to recognise their bodies as obstacles to success in problem-solving, further strengthening evidence of their intelligence … Continue reading Elephants’ ‘body awareness’ adds to increasing evidence of their intelligence

Meet ‘DeeDee,’ a distant, dim member of our solar system

Artist concept of the planetary body 2014 UZ224, more informally known as DeeDee. ALMA was able to observe the faint millimeter-wavelength “glow” emitted by the object, confirming it is roughly … Continue reading Meet ‘DeeDee,’ a distant, dim member of our solar system

Not one, not two, but five new particles discovered with the Large Hadron Collider

Operating at unprecedented luminosities, the LHCb experiment at CERN has revealed a system of five “glue-like” particles that interact through the strong and weak nuclear forces. The particles are called … Continue reading Not one, not two, but five new particles discovered with the Large Hadron Collider
