See how the machines are making work safer at one Georgia-Pacific plant in Crossett, Ark. Nobody – and nothing – is perfect. As Georgia-Pacific master technician Mike Cooper learned, sometimes even a gigantic rolling robot can benefit from a little…
For the first time, a fast radio burst has been found to be repeating, in a regular 16-day cycle. The baffling detection from the CHIME radio telescope deepens the mystery of these bizarre intergalactic objects.
An astronomer reports on a very old galaxy cluster – labeled XLSSC 122 – whose light has taken 10.4 billion years to travel across the universe to us.
NASA astronaut Christina Hammock Koch returned to Earth after setting a record for the longest single spaceflight in history by a woman. During her 328 days in space, she completed six spacewalks, including conducting the first all-female spacewalk with fellow…
Space researchers and amateur photographers in Finland have identified a new type of aurora, or northern lights. They call them âdunes.â Read more and see a video.
Researchers compared modern and ancient animals to explore how mammalian vertebrae have evolved into sophisticated physical structures that can carry out multiple functions. The comparison between complex spine of cats, the more uniform spine of lizard, and CT scans of synapsid fossils showed that the evolution of functions (e.g. bending, twisting) is driven by both selective pressures/behavior and the evolution of independent sections of the spine. The findings shed light on how mammals evolved.
The fossil of this new-to-science dinosaur offers a view into dinosaur-bird evolution.
Working together with space researchers, amateur photographers have discovered a new auroral form. Named ‘dunes’ by the hobbyists, the phenomenon is believed to be caused by waves of oxygen atoms glowing due to a stream of particles released from the sun.
