Why won’t the Supernova explode?

NuSTAR will map the distribution of titanium-44 in supernova remnants like this one, Cassiopeia A, to search for evidence of asymmetries Somewhere in the Milky Way, a massive old star…

Big Bang Theory a bust – Ancient sound waves sculpted galaxy formation

Scientist claims entire universe existed before Big Bang Cosmic radiation discovered by NASA is older than Big Bang Universe left “trail” of radiation forming in concentric circles Maps of circles…

Electric Venus and Oil-Lamp Physics

Credit: NASA/JPL Galileo NIMS team Modern astrophysics is trying to explain electric lights with theories born in the oil-lamp era. The laws of electromagnetism have been known for nearly 200…

The outer limits: Nasa probe sees the ‘edge’ of our solar system for first time – and it’s completely different from what we thought

Solar system ‘travelling more slowly than thought’ ‘Bow shock’ – like a sonic boom in space – does not exist 25 years of research turned on its head Detected by…

Quadrupole Pole Shift On The Sun

Normally during each 11 year solar cycle, the sun’s north and south pole will shift magnetic polarity (from positive to negative and visa-verse) whereby each pole remains opposite each other…

Our Universe Is A Gigantic And Wonderfully Detailed Holographic Illusion

In our daily life we are not aware that we may, in fact, live in a hologram and our existence is a holographic projection, nothing more. All what we believe…

Strange Emissions by Sun are Mutating Matter

For months mounting fear has driven researchers to wring their hands over the approaching solar storms. Some have predicted devastating solar tsunamis that could wipe away our advanced technology, others…

Indian scientists find volcanic activity on moon

Claim supported by discovery of two-km high peak with boulders Breaking through a popular perception of moon being a geologically inert place for the last three billion years, Indian scientists…

NASA rocked by climate change revolt

In an unprecedented slap at NASA’s endorsement of global warming science, nearly 50 former astronauts and scientists–including the ex-boss of the Johnson Space Center–claim the agency is on the wrong…

A Real ‘Theory of Everything’

The editorial of New Scientist of 10 December 2005 is headlined: “Ideas needed: The hunt for a theory of everything is going nowhere fast.” It underlines the parlous state of…

The $6 billion LHC Circus

Science has become an international circus. And opening day for “The Greatest Show on Earth” has arrived. In the 27 km main circus ring we have the Large Hadron Collider…

Does DNA Emit Light?

Are humans really beings of light? I get lots of suggestions for stories, and I really appreciate them. But some of them are too good to be true. An example…

The Secret of Saturn’s Hexagon

Admittedly, any mystery involving geometry does not sound all that thrilling (though this one does have a sweet video), I promise this one is. For the last 30 years astronomers…
