The case of the over-tilting exoplanets

The case of the over-tilting exoplanets
For almost a decade, astronomers have tried to explain why so many pairs of planets outside our solar system have an odd configuration—their orbits seem to have been pushed apart by a powerful unknown mechanism. Yale researchers say they've found a possible answer, and it implies that the planets' poles are majorly tilted. The finding could have a big impact on how researchers estimate the structure, climate, and habitability of exoplanets as they try to identify planets that are similar to Earth. The research appears in the March 4 online edition of the journal Nature Astronomy...

Billions of Undetected ‘Rogue Planets’ Could Be Tearing Wildly Through Our Galaxy

Billions of Undetected 'Rogue Planets' Could Be Tearing Wildly Through Our Galaxy
We tend to think of planets neatly ordered in systems, like our own Solar System. But every now and then, astronomers get hints of something else – rogue planets, not attached to any star or system, drifting lonely through the galaxy. Now it turns out there could be many more of them than anyone ever suspected. A new simulation has revealed that there could be billions of rogue planets in the Milky Way...

Hyperscale Cloud Platforms Changed Data Center Design and Function. Here’s How

Hyperscale Cloud Platforms Changed Data Center Design and Function. Here's How
It was August 2014 when a team of Gartner analysts declared that original design manufacturers (ODMs) were having a greater influence on the implementation of data centers than traditional OEMs. This was on account of the growing purchasing power of hyperscale customers — organizations looking to build big, but also in modular segments that scale more rapidly to changing traffic demands...

Google open-sources GPipe, a library for efficiently training large deep neural networks
If you’re in the business of training large-scale AI systems, good news: Google’s got your back. Google’s AI research division today open-sourced GPipe, a library for “efficiently” training deep neural networks (layered functions modeled after neurons) under Lingvo, a TensorFlow framework for sequence modeling. It’s applicable to any network consisting of multiple sequential layers, Google AI software engineer Yanping Huang said in a blog post, and allows researchers to “easily” scale performance...

IBM Quantum Computers Reach a New Performance High

IBM Quantum Computers Reach a New Performance High
At the 2019 American Physical Society March Meeting today, IBM revealed that its quantum computers have achieved the “highest quantum volume to date.” Quantum volume is a metric IBM uses to determine the real-world performance of a quantum computer. The company argues that this is a more accurate way to measure the performance of a practical quantum computer compared to comparing the number of qubits alone...

China is going to Mars with a new rover next year
China got a very, very late start in its efforts to explore space. The U.S., Russia, and other countries forged new paths to the Moon and beyond before China even got started, but it’s making up for lost time in a big way. Following successful Moon missions, including landing on the far side of the rock for the first time ever, China is now looking to the Red Planet for its next big space mission...
