It’s the hiatus that never happened: an apparent ‘slowdown’ in rising surface temperatures between 1998 and 2012, which encouraged climate change deniers to label global warming a made-up conspiracy. Even a hoax. To be clear, thanks to the efforts of scientists, this ‘pause’ in global warming has been thoroughly debunked, but new research highlights another

The first asteroid observed visiting our Solar System from elsewhere isn’t just unusual in its interstellar origin. It’s also unlike any other asteroid we’ve seen before. Astronomers have trained a flurry of telescopes on the object discovered last month, and now we’re being rewarded with super-exciting details.   Newly named ‘Oumuamua, the asteroid is up

In the science of quantum communication, the challenge has always been prolonging the entangled state that the particles are in. As quantum information is carried by these entangled particles, the length of time the entanglement is sustained affects the distance that the information can travel.   Quantum communication systems do this using direct optical-fiber connections,

Using data from two different satellites, astronomers have linked an eerie-sounding phenomenon called a whistler mode chorus to sudden bursts of electrons in the magnetosphere.  Every now and then, the drizzle of charged particles that seeps through Earth’s protective magnetic shell erupts into a sudden downpour. Researchers have had their suspicions as to the cause, and

At just 11 light-years from our Solar System, a newly discovered exoplanet is the second-closest we’ve ever found that’s temperate enough to potentially host and sustain life. Earth-sized planet Ross 128 b orbits inactive red dwarf Ross 128 in the system’s Goldilocks zone. This means it ticks all the initial habitability boxes: it’s probably rocky,

With everyone from Elon Musk to MIT to the US Department of Defense researching brain implants, it seems only a matter of time before such devices are ready to help humans extend their natural capabilities. Now, a professor from theUniversity of Southern California (USC) has demonstrated the use of a brain implant to improve the human memory, and the device could have major
