How the Newly Launched French Satellite Could 'Shake the Foundations of Physics'
Science & Tech  (tags: astronomy, Centre National d'√Čtudes Spatiales, Einstein, France, gravity, interesting, news, space )

- 5 days ago -
Their satellite will directly test an important aspect of Albert EinsteinâEUR(TM)s General Theory of Relativity, specifically his "Equivalence Principle", the current model of how gravity works. Logged in Doomwatch Legacy by Sunstroke author David Kagan.
Scientists Crack Mystery of Migrating Monarch Butterfly Navigation
Science & Tech  (tags: butterflies, discovery, interesting, monarchs, news, science, University of Massachusetts Medical Scho )

- 16 days ago -
The uncanny mechanisms that monarch butterflies use to navigate thousands of miles each year from Mexico has long baffled scientists. It has to do with "the circadian clock", as logged in Doomwatch Legacy by Sunstroke author David Kagan.
Newly Discovered Microbes Expand Tree of Life, Say Scientists
Science & Tech  (tags: discovery, life, interesting, Nature Microbiology, news, research, science, University of Waterloo in Canada, world )

- 23 days ago -
The recent discovery of more than 1,000 previously undocumented microbes now greatly expands the tree of life, a model used by biologists to describe relationships between all known species. Logged in Doomwatch Legacy by Sunstroke author David Kagan.
As Ocean Acidification Threatens the West Coast, Scientists Try to Stop It
Science & Tech  (tags: CO2, environment, food fish, fossil fuels, interesting, news, ocean acidification, Oregon State University, science, world )

- 27 days ago -
Urgent action must be taken to avoid devastating consequences to the North American West Coast due to global CO2 emissions. Food fish and the entire ocean ecosystem are at risk, as logged in Doomwatch Legacy by Sunstroke author David Kagan.
This Blind Cavefish Walks Like a Four-Legged Land-Dwelling Creature
Science & Tech  (tags: animals, cavefish, discovery, interesting, Harvard University's Museum of Comparati, New Jersey Institute of Technology, rare species, science, Thailand )

- 38 days ago -
It's the only one of its kind that can walk and climb fast moving waterfalls, like a salamander. They will help scientists better understand the evolution of land-walking animals like us, as logged in Doomwatch Legacy by Sunstroke author David Kagan.
Hubble Telescope Finds Monster Stars in Tarantula Nebula
Science & Tech  (tags: astronomy, black holes, discovery, gravity waves, Hubble Space Telescope, interesting, nasa, news, Royal Astronomical Society, science, space )

- 47 days ago -
The Tarantula Nebula, a "stellar factory", contains over 800,000 massive stars, far more than in our galaxy. This discovery can help us understand black holes and gravitational waves, as logged in Doomwatch Legacy by Sunstroke author David Kagan.
Chirping With Syntax: Do Bird Calls Work Like Human Language?
Science & Tech  (tags: animals, birds, discovery, interesting, Japanese great tits, Nature Communications, news, science, Toshitaka N. Suzuki, University of Miami )

- 56 days ago -
Birds communicate surprisingly like humans by using compositional syntax to produce a series of complex messages. Such as warning of predator danger, food source location, or wooing mates, as logged in Doomwatch Legacy by Sunstroke author David Kagan.
After Nearly a Year in Space, Astronaut and Cosmonauts Return Home to Earth
Science & Tech  (tags: astronauts, cosmonauts, humans, interesting, Mars, nasa, news, research, science, space )

- 63 days ago -
US astronaut Scott Kelly and two Russian cosmonauts landed safely. Kelly's year in space will determine the affects on humans of a yearlong manned NASA mission to Mars and back, as logged in Doomwatch Legacy by Sunstroke author David Kagan.
Dark Matter Clue: Strange Radio Bursts Finally Reveal Host Galaxy
Science & Tech  (tags: ASKAP, astronomy, CSIRO, discovery, fast radio bursts, news, science, space, Square Kilometer Array Organization, SUPERB )

- 67 days ago -
For the first time, astronomers determined the location of a strange and powerful explosion known as a fast radio burst and used it to to measure the amount of dark matter between it and us. Logged in Doomwatch Legacy by Sunstroke author David Kagan.
Next Step in Gravitational Waves: Put a Gigantic Detector in Space
Science & Tech  (tags: astronomy, ESA, gravity waves, interesting, Lagrangian point, LISA Pathfinder, news, science, space )

- 76 days ago -
The European Space Agency just launched an experiment to test the feasibility of orbiting an enormous laser interferometer to detect Einstein's gravitational waves with incredible precision. Logged in Doomwatch Legacy by Sunstroke author David Kagan.
