The ultradense core of an exploded star contains a bizarre form of superconducting matter called a superfluid, new studies suggest. Superfluids made of charged particles are also superconductors, which allow electric current to flow with no resistance. Superfluidity is a friction-free state of matter, and superfluids created in labs here on Earth exhibit remarkable properties. It can climb upward, for example, and escape airtight containers, researchers said. The matter, found by researchers using NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory, is at the core of Cassiopeia A, the remains of a massive star that exploded in a supernova.
It has already been trialed in people and could give us a better way to analyze and stimulate the brain.
ÄIO’s fermentation process creates healthy, sustainable oils and fats by upcycling low-value industry organics.
Even before birth, our brains are taking note of the languages we hear.
Since JWST first glimpsed the Universe, we've entered a new era in understanding the earliest objects in the Universe. What have we learned?
U.S. particle physicists recently recommended a list of major research projects that they hope will receive federal funding.
