The fossilized teeth and bones of baby dinosaurs found in northern Alaska may indicate that dinosaurs didn’t just summer in the Arctic but nested and raised their young there. Plus, the cosmic dawn, a cosmic hand, black holes, and preserving core samples for the future of science.
The IceCube Neutrino Observatory in Antarctica detected an electron antineutrino, confirming another piece of the Standard Model and proving that neutrino astronomy is feasible. Plus, a meteorite, wormholes, zodiacal light, and our weekly What’s Up segment.
Climate change is a leading problem in today’s society, and today we have a quartet of stories on its effect on the world around us. Plus, more coverage from the AAS meeting with three stories on black holes, as well as dating supernovae, breaking a star, and magnetic chaos in a galaxy.
Quantum effects observed in white dwarfs; machine learning helps find low-oxygen-abundance galaxy; signs of possible neutron star in SN 1987A; pair of recent meteorites found in Australia
Join us today as we look at how quantum mechanics and Einstein’s theory of general relativity work together in white dwarfs. Machine learning is used to find a galaxy with an extremely low abundance of oxygen. Scientists find signs of a neutron star in supernova 1987A. And researchers managed to locate two recently arrived meteorites in Australia with the help of fireball detection cameras.
