The unprecedented scale of imaging can record even the slightest changes in the behavior of light.
Scientists are still in the dark but the new insights place them a step closer to the source of fast radio bursts.
It’s a tiny value, but a huge discovery.
Gluttony? Tsk tsk tsk.
It’s not just low light that makes us sleepy.
A team of researchers modified a kayak, equipped it with sensors, a petrol engine, strapped it to a ship, and set out to sea to measure zooplankton’s reaction to artificial light.
Instead of consuming less, we’re consuming more.
You can’t get any more lunar than this without leaving the planet.
It’s like storing lightning in thunder.
Let’s shine some light on the matter.
Just MIT doing a bit of light thinking.
Currently only works with blue light, but they’re working on fixing that.
It uses infrared light instead of radio waves to transfer data.
We’re closer than ever to a Theory of Everything.
An intriguing electron-light interaction was discovered by scientists.
A whole new world of signal processing may be just around the corner.
In vacuum, light always travels at a constant speed of 299,792,458 metres per second. Nothing can travel faster than this constant c, as denoted by physicists. These two postulates are basic building blocks of modern physics and were first announced more than a hundred years ago by Albert Einstein. Yet, there are ingenious ways to slow light to the point of trapping it in a dead stop. Prepare for some weirdness.
A new research investigated various light intensity scenarios and reported their findings. For optimal learning performance, “cool” light is better while “yellow” or “warm” light is the most relaxing.
Mantis shrimp are probably best known for the dazzling colors that adorn their shells. The second thing they’re best known for is their tendency to violently murder anything they come into contact with.
