Scientists study the black hole, shooting bullets

January 14, 2012 13:34

Astronomers have captured the moment when a black hole began to "shoot" in space super-fast "bullets" of gas at a speed equivalent to one quarter of the speed of light.

Black hole threw gas "bullet" in June 2009, and the satellite NASA Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer (RXTE) and ground radio telescope Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA) were able to watch the events unfold.

"As a judge in a sports game, we essentially rewound the footage on the trajectory of" bullets ", exactly when they were launched", said Gregory Sivakov at the University of Alberta in Canada.

Astronomers reach new frontiers of dark matter

January 10, 2012 12:17

For the first time in the history of cosmology, astronomers were able to reach previously unexplored frontiers of dark matter. Remind those who have forgotten that dark matter — a hypothetical form of matter that does not emit electromagnetic radiation, and does not interact with it. It is this property of the form of matter makes it impossible to directly observe. But it is possible to detect the presence of dark matter created by its gravitational effects. Although the detection of dark matter could solve the problem of dark matter, which is an abnormally fast

Control by thought, blurring the line between human and robot to merge with the machine to return to an active life avatar leaving cinemas to take place among us. While it is mainly a laboratory, but the day is near when the new items can really improve the quality of life of people — mainly those whose physical abilities are limited.

At the University of Barcelona in the European research project, scientists bring together man and machine, using, in particular, skin electrodes and stereo glasses. Thanks to this symbiosis actually feels connected "in

Quantum universe

Hugh Everett, of course, tried to discuss his theory of the "many worlds" with other physicists, but received in return only surprise or indifference. One physicist Bryce DeWitt of the University of Texas, even spoke out against Everett's theory, saying: "I just can not feel the split." But such a reaction Everett recalled the reaction of critics of Galileo, who said that they did not feel the movement of the Earth. (Over time, DeWitt moved to the side of Everett and has become one of the leading proponents of this theory.)

For several decades,
