Astronomers: Tilt-a-worlds could Harbor Life

Featured Story

A fluctuating tilt in a planet's orbit does not preclude the possibility of life, according to new research by astronomers at the University of Washington, Utah's Weber State University and NASA. In fact, sometimes it helps. That's because such "tilt-a-worlds," turned from their orbital plane by the influence of companion planets, are less likely than fixed-spin planets to freeze over, as heat from their host star is more evenly distributed

Scientists Gain New Insight into Mysterious Electronic Phenomenon

Thumbnail

For more than a quarter of a century, high-temperature superconductors have perplexed scientists who seek to understand the physical phenomena responsible for their unique properties. Thanks to a new study, researchers have identified and solved at least one paradox in the behavior of high-temperature superconductors. The riddle involves a phenomenon called the “pseudogap”

Could Chess Robots Cause Judgment Day?

Thumbnail

Next time you play a computer at chess, think about the implications if you beat it. It could be a very sore loser! A study just published in the Journal of Experimental & Theoretical Artificial Intelligence reflects upon the growing need for autonomous technology, and suggests that humans should be very careful to prevent future systems from developing anti-social and potentially harmful behaviour.

Nukes at Sea: Floating Plants Could Ride Out Tsunamis

Thumbnail

When an earthquake and tsunami struck the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant complex in 2011, neither the quake nor the inundation caused the ensuing contamination. Rather, it was the aftereffects — specifically, the lack of cooling for the reactor cores, due to a shutdown of all power at the station — that caused most of the harm.

Shadow Portrait of NASA Rover Opportunity on Martian Slope

Image of the Day

NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity caught its own silhouette in this late-afternoon image taken by the rover's rear hazard avoidance camera. This camera is mounted low on the rover and has a wide-angle lens. The image was taken looking eastward shortly before sunset
