“Neutron Sirens” –Will Solve ‘Hubble’s Conundrum’ About Our [ NOT ] Expanding Universe

“Neutron Sirens” –Will Solve ‘Hubble’s Conundrum’ About Our [ NOT ] Expanding Universe
“The Hubble Constant is one of the most important numbers in cosmology because it is essential for estimating the curvature of space and the age of the universe, as well as exploring its fate,” said Hiranya Peiris, at University College London [ BUT THE ASSUMPTIONS OF ASTRONOMERS ARE ALL WRONG: THE BIG BANG DIDN'T EXISTS ]. Peiris, a British astrophysicist best known for her work on the cosmic microwave background radiation, was one of 27 scientists who received the Breakthrough Prize in Fundamental Physics in 2018 for their “detailed maps of the early universe.”...

New Map of Dark Matter Spanning 10 Million Galaxies Hints at a Flaw in Our Physics

New Map of Dark Matter Spanning 10 Million Galaxies Hints at a Flaw in Our Physics
An invisible force is having an effect on our Universe. We can't see it, and we can't detect it - but we can observe how it interacts gravitationally with the things we can see and detect, such as light. Now an international team of astronomers has used one of the world's most powerful telescopes to analyze that effect across 10 million galaxies in the context of Einstein's general relativity. The result? The most comprehensive map of dark matter across the history of the Universe to date...

Western Digital’s RISC-V “SweRV” Core Design Released For Free

Western Digital’s RISC-V "SweRV" Core Design Released For Free
Western Digital has published a register-transfer level (RTL) design abstraction of its in-house designed SweRV RISC-V core. The SweRV core is one of several RISC-V projects the company as undertaken as part of their effort to spearhead the ISA, its ecosystem, and foster their own transition away from licensed, royalty-charging CPU cores. In accordance with the more open design goals of RISC-V, the publication of the high-level representation of SweTV means that third parties can use it in their own chip designs, which will popularize not only the particular core design, but also the RISC-V architecture in general...

Emotet Uses Camouflaged Malicious Macros to Avoid Antivirus Detection
A new Emotet Trojan variant has been observed in the wild with the added ability to hide from anti-malware software by embedding malicious macros used to drop the main payload inside XML files disguised as Word documents. Emotet (also known as Geodo or Heodo) is a modular Trojan developed by the Mealybug threat group and used by attackers to infect targets via spam e-mails, leading to the theft of financial information such as bank logins or cryptocurrency wallets...

OpenAI won’t release an AI model due to its ability to create fake news

OpenAI won't release an AI model due to its ability to create fake news
OpenAI is an organization that was created by Elon Musk in 2015 ( who left it due to a conflict of interest last year ) in an effort to develop artificial intelligence (AI) models that are beneficial to humans. The firm revolves around Musk's beliefs about the potential disadvantages of unregulated AI and its impact on humanity with the business tycoon even stating that "I keep sounding the alarm bell, but until people see robots going down the street killing people, they don’t know how to react, because it seems so ethereal." Now, OpenAI has released a statement saying that it has developed an artificially intelligent model that is capable of producing realistic fake news, but it won't release it due to its potential malicious applications...

Tiny particles can switch back and forth between phases

Tiny particles can switch back and forth between phases
Isomerization is well established in small organic molecules (e.g., the cis-to-trans transformation of azobenzene), whereas bulk inorganic solids exhibit phase transformations. Although small in size, nanocrystals follow bulk-like behavior in their solid-solid transformations. At even smaller length scales, inorganic clusters isomerize with molecular- and inorganic solid–like characteristics. Red and blue indicate two different structures...

Three years ago, when Richard Robinson, associate professor of materials science and engineering, was on sabbatical at Hebrew University in Israel, he asked a graduate student to send him some nanoparticles of a specific size.

An asteroid will block the brightest star in the night sky on Monday, and astronomers need your help seeing it
Sirius, a system of two stars — Sirius A and Sirius B — is the brightest object we can see from Earth. However, an asteroid called (4388) Jürgenstock will briefly pass in front of Sirius on Monday night. Sirius will almost entirely fade for a few tenths of a second as the 3.1-mile-wide asteroid flies by. The occultation, as it's called, should be visible in parts of Mexico, six US states, and Canada...

Intel Unveils Specs for 9th-Gen H-Series CPUs

Intel Unveils Specs for 9th-Gen H-Series CPUs
Intel today posted an official document online revealing the chipmaker's upcoming 9th-generation Intel Core H-series processors. The list of previously unannounced chips span from mid-range Core i5 models up to high-end Core i9 models. Intel 9th-generation H-series chips are built around Intel's Coffee Lake microarchitecture and are expected to come out of the saturated 14nm++ cooking oven. H-series processors primarily target the mobile high-performance market, such as gaming laptops and mobile workstations. As a result, they typically have a modest 45W TDP (thermal design power) rating...

Descubren gigantescas montañas al interior de nuestro planeta: están a 660 kilómetros de profundidad
Si bien se dice que, en términos generales, el planeta tiene tres capas: la corteza, el manto y el núcleo (interno y externo), los científicos consideran existen partes en el interior de la Tierra con características bastante peculiares. Un nuevo estudio encontró una cadena de montañas, nada menos que a 660 kilómetros de profundidad. El terremoto que sufrió Bolivia en 1994, a unos 320 kilómetros de La Paz, fue tan potente ( 8,2 grados de magnitud), que abrió la posibilidad de estudiar lo que existe bajo nuestros pies, pero que no habíamos percibido...
