Scientists create ‘impossible’ superconductor CeH9 after bending the rules of chemistry

Scientists have created what they called an “impossible” or “forbidden” compound which they claim seems to bend the rules of chemistry.Researchers from the US, Russia, and China created the compound known as CeH9 or cerium superhydride which exhibits a quality known as superconductivity. Superconductive materials are capable of conducting an electric current without any resistance,…

Fast Radio Burst Exposes Halo of Massive Galaxy | Astronomy -News.com

In November 2018, CSIRO’s Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder (ASKAP) detected a new fast radio burst, an enigmatic blast of cosmic radio waves lasting less than a millisecond. Follow-up observations with ESO’s Very Large Telescope and other telescopes identified not only the host galaxy of the event, named FRB 181112, but also a bright galaxy…

Researchers reveal molecular basis of vision

Credit: CC0 Public Domain Researchers have solved the three-dimensional structure of a protein complex involved in vertebrate vision at atomic resolution, a finding that has broad implications for our understanding of biological signaling processes and the design of over a third of the drugs on the market today. The findings illuminate how signals from photons…

Fascinating ways animals prepare for fall

It’s officially fall, which for humans often means snuggling up inside and anticipating the holidays ahead. Conversely, for many animals, it’s a season of intense preparation for the looming winter. From deer to birds to bears, many species are triggered by the shortening days to switch into a frenetic mode of gathering food, finding mates,…
