‘Exciting’ results of 2 experiments defy the rulebook of physics

Preliminary results from two experiments suggest that something could be wrong with the basic way physicists believe the universe works, a view that has both the field of particle physics both amazed and excited. Small particles called muons do not quite do what is expected of them in two different long-term experiments in the United States and Europe. The confusing …

Why some physicists are skeptical of the muon experiment suggesting “new physics”

One of the smallest things in the universe could have just changed everything we know about it. On Wednesday, the U.S. Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab) in Illinois unveiled highly anticipated results from a stored particle physics experiment known as the Muon g-2. The bizarre results that showed something completely different from the standard theories that projected …

A sulfo sugar from green vegetables promotes the growth of important intestinal bacteria – ScienceDaily

A team of researchers has analyzed how microbes in the gut treat the plant-based, sulfur-containing sugar sulfoquinovose. Their study discovered that specialized bacteria collaborate on the use of the sulfo sugar and produce hydrogen sulfide. This gas has different effects on human health: at low concentrations it has an anti-inflammatory effect, while increased amounts of hydrogen sulfide in the intestine …

This is why China and Russia want to build a base on the moon

The Russian space agency Roscosmos and China’s National Space Administration (CNSA) recently agreed to establish lunar outposts on and in orbit around the Moon. This announcement comes as Russia prepares to mark the 60th anniversary of Yuri’s Night – the beginning of human spaceflight. Roscosmos dates from 1991 from the disbanded Soviet space program. The Soviet space agency achieved a …

NASA is preparing to fly the Ingenuity helicopter to Mars, in another worldly moment, the Wright brothers. NASA prepares to fly the Ingenuity helicopter to Mars,

It does not fly far, just to the height of a basketball rim and down, a short jump that should take about 40 seconds. But the autonomous flight of a small helicopter called Ingenuity, perhaps as early as Sunday, would mark a first in interplanetary travel, demonstrate new technology and pave the way for scientists and explorers to cross the …

Discovery can extend the life of electronic devices

Electron microscopy images show the degradation in action. Credit: University of Sydney Nobel laureate Herbert Kroemer once famously claimed “Interface is the device.” The Sydney researchers’ observations could therefore trigger a new debate about whether interfaces – which are physical boundaries that separate different regions in materials – are a viable solution to the unreliability of next-generation devices. “Our discovery …

Exploration of ocean currents under the ‘Doomsday Glacier’

Photo of unmanned submarine Ran. Credit: Filip Stedt For the first time, scientists have been able to retrieve data from below the Thwaites Glacier, also known as the “Doomsday Glacier.” They find that the supply of hot water to the glacier is greater than previously thought, triggering concerns about faster melting and faster ice flow. With the help of the …
