Light pulses provide a new route to enhance superconductivity

Light pulses provide a new route to enhance superconductivity
Under normal electron band theory, Mott insulators ought to conduct electricity, but they do not due to interactions among their electrons. But now, scientists from the RIKEN Cluster for Pioneering Research have shown that pulses of light could be used to turn these materials beyond simple conductors to superconductors—materials that conduct electricity without energy loss. This process would happen through an unconventional type of superconductivity known as “eta pairing.”…

Astronomers are Using NASA’s Deep Space Network to Hunt for Magnetars

Astronomers are Using NASA’s Deep Space Network to Hunt for Magnetars
Right, magnetars. Perhaps one of the most ferocious beasts to inhabit the cosmos. Loud, unruly, and temperamental, they blast their host galaxies with wave after wave of electromagnetic radiation, running the gamut from soft radio waves to hard X-rays. They are rare and poorly understood…

This Breathtaking Close-Up of Jupiter’s Swirling Skies Looks Like a Painting
Since its arrival at Jupiter in 2016, NASA’s little space explorer Juno has been steadfastly circling the enigmatic gas giant, over and over again. Each close flyby (or perijove) from its highly elliptical orbit brings us new views of Jupiter’s swirly cloud cover, and we just can’t get enough…

Retailer lists Ryzen 3000-series models and pricing, including rumored 16-core parts

Retailer lists Ryzen 3000-series models and pricing, including rumored 16-core parts
Outside of a tease at CES, we haven’t heard much in the way of official news regarding AMD’s third generation Ryzen CPUs. However, that never stops the rumor mill, which currently suggests by way of Singapore retailer Bizgram that AMD will offer 16C/32T CPUs for less than $560. Bizgram’s catalog also contains the rumored 12-core Ryzen 7 3700 and 3700X [ for a lot less ]…

Una de las cosas que China puede presumir es su arquitectura, y la muestra más reciente de sus capacidades es The Crystal, un “rascacielos horizontal” ubicado a 250 metros de altura que une cuatro rascacielos del complejo (vía Express). Esta maravilla arquitectónica en manos de CapitaLand tuvo un costo de 4,800 millones de dólares y como pueden ver en las imágenes es una especie de puente aéreo de 305 metros de largo que está cubierto por una bóveda de cristal ubicado en la ciudad de Chongqing justo donde convergen los ríos Yangtze y Jialing…

Physicists Are Rethinking a Fundamental Quantum Law to Help Us Understand Reality

Physicists Are Rethinking a Fundamental Quantum Law to Help Us Understand Reality
Deep in the heart of physics there’s a lucky guess. It was an incredibly good guess, one that remains solid in the face of time and experiment, and is now a fundamental principle in quantum mechanics. It’s called the Born rule, and while it’s used for predictions, nobody truly understands how it works. But a bold new attempt to rewrite it could be the break we’ve been looking for to finally understand it in full…

“The Invisible Galaxy” –100 Million Black Holes Lurking in the Milky Way [ I think that their count is falling short, by a mile, and these “black stars” are moving around the Milky Way, by the billions ]
Astrophysicists have discovered a dozen black holes gathered around Sagittarius A* (Sgr A*), the supermassive black hole in the center of the Milky Way Galaxy, supporting a decades-old prediction, opening up new opportunities to better understand the universe. After conducting a cosmic inventory to calculate and categorize stellar-remnant black holes, astronomers from the University of California concluded that there are probably tens of millions of the enigmatic, dark objects in the Milky Way – far more than expected…
