Physicists have built a pair of microscopic drums and, through quantum entanglement, have found they beat together in perfect synchrony. Plus, dwarf galaxies, China’s Zhurong rover, the East African Rift, and more about ice giants.
It’s a day ending in ‘y’, and planetary formation theories are once again being challenged. This time the challenge comes from a six-planet system with five planets in resonance. Plus a cloudless Jupiter, TRAPPIST-1, volcanoes, and some science of the weird.
Join us today for a first-ever double feature episode. Dr. Pamela and Beth will cover the latest in astronomy and planetary science.
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.
Exposed planetary core discovered; neutrinos may come from SMBHs; filaments around galaxy cluster Abell 2255; LIGO reveals “spooky popcorn”
Join us today as we talk about the first exposed planetary core ever discovered. We examine research that neutrinos may come from supermassive black holes. We look at the filaments found in the halo of galaxy cluster Abell 2255. And we find out that LIGO’s mirrors can vibrate due to quantum noise. Plus an interview with Dr. Matthew Graham of Caltech.
