During a meeting with Norway’s Minister of Transport and Communications, Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk claimed that since ‘autopilot’ was rolled out, there have been 50% fewer car accidents.
NASA released a new set of images of Ceres – and they’re a sight to behold.f
NASA astronauts have discovered a lonely planetary-like mass floating on its own, without a solar system. Imagine a galaxy, riddled with countless solar systems. Then zoom in slowly on a solar system – how do you picture it? There’s probably a star at the center, and several planets around it. That’s generally where we feel planets should be, rotating around
Using two sets of electrodes, scientists have successfully restored finger movement in a paralyzed patient for the first time in history. The results could be the starting point to developing methods that would allow people around the planet to regain limb mobility.
A team of NASA researchers has developed the first ever method for identifying and studying underground forest fungi from outer space, providing information that will help us better understand how forests will develop. Mycorrhizal fungi (underground fungus) are more similar to a city network than to individual organisms. They are complex intertwined networks that can spread for miles and miles
Astronomers have found a supermassive black hole in a completely unexpected area of space, a sparse area where massive galaxies are few and far between.
NASA’s Opportunity rover beamed back this amazing photographed showing a dust devil swirling over the Martian surface. “This is one of the best dust devils that we have seen in Meridiani Planum,” said Ray Arvidson who’s Opportunity’s deputy principal investigator.
Having a single copy reduces lifespan by up to one year, while individuals having both copies stand at risk of living three years less than they’d normally would.
At this point, it’s pretty clear that a significant object smashed into Jupiter. The whole thing was captured on film below, more explanations after the video: Two weeks ago, on March 17, Gerrit Kernbauer, an amateur astronomer in Mödling, Austria, was recording Jupiter using a 20 cm telescope. It’s quite standard stuff, but Kernbauer got more than he expected. At 00:18:33 UTC he captured
A few years ago, the Cassini spacecraft made a surprising discovery: there are geysers erupting on Saturn’s moon Enceladus, spewing water and ice to great heights. However, the process which causes these geysers remained unknown or controversial. Now, scientists at the University of Chicago and Princeton University have pinpointed a mechanism through which Saturn’s tidal forces exert constant stress and cause
