Mars orbiter captures crazy photo of planet's north pole

The marches that we often saw in images from rovers and orbiters are dry, dusty, and barren, but there are parts of the planet that, when viewed separately, can fool you into thinking you are looking at a completely foreign alien land. The latest snapshot captured by ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter fits perfectly into the latter category. The image was …

Physicists theorize a novel way to explore the nature of dark matter with lasers

Researchers have designed a way to give the long tunnel arms of gravitational-wave observatories like KAGRA in Japan the ability to potentially also detect axion dark matter. Credit: University of Tokyo Institute for Cosmic Ray Research              Dark matter is known only by its effect on massive astronomical bodies, but has yet to be directly observed or even identified. A …

A great experiment has & # 39; weighed & # 39; the small neutrino, a particle that passes right through the matter

The KATRIN spectrometer on the way to the experimental hall. Photo: KATRIN An experiment nearly two decades in manufacturing has finally revealed its measurements of mass in the universe's most abundant particle of matter: neutrino. The neutrino may be the strangest subatomic particle; although plentiful, it requires some of the most sensitive detectors to observe. Researchers have been working for …

Massive volcano on Jupiter's moon could erupt imminently

Jupiter's moon Io is home to the most active volcano in the solar system, Loki Patera, a 125-mile-wide lava lake. Now, a new study suggests that Loki Patera is getting ready to erupt again. "Loki is the largest and most powerful volcano on Io, so bright in the infrared that we can detect it using telescopes on the Earth," Planetary …

The Universe's Most Massive Neutron Star Spotted. Should it even exist?

A spinning cosmic cadaver is all that remains of a heavy star that hovers around 4,600 light-years from Earth after undergoing an explosive death. Now astronomers have found that this corpse is the most massive neutron star ever discovered. They actually say it is so massive – about 2.14 times the mass of our sun that was packed into a …

It's Gonna Blow! Giant Volcano on Jupiter Moon Could Erupt Any Day

The biggest volcano on the Jupiter moon Io should erupt any day now, a new study suggests. Loki Patera a 125-mile-wide (200-kilometer) lava lake on the most volcanically active body in the solar system, has had fairly regular activity over the past few decades. And it's due for an outburst very soon. "If this behavior remains the same, Loki should …
