At least seven coronal mass ejections (CMEs) from the sun have been observed. Its impact arrived on Earth on 10 May 2024 and will continue through 12 May 2024.   The activity at sunspot AR3664 was captured by the GOES-16...
Voyager 1, the most distant man-made object in history, has resumed sending signal to the Earth after a gap of five months. On 14 November 2023, It had stopped sending readable science and engineering data to Earth following a...
Biosynthesis of proteins and nucleic acid require nitrogen however atmospheric nitrogen is not available to eukaryotes for organic synthesis. Only few prokaryotes (such as cyanobacteria, clostridia, archaea etc) have the ability to fix the molecular nitrogen abundantly available in...
British theoretical physicist Professor Peter Higgs, renowned for predicting mass-giving Higgs’s field in 1964 passed away on 8 April 2024 following a short illness. He was 94.   It took about half a century before existence of fundamental mass-giving Higgs field could...
Total solar eclipse will be observed in North America continent on Monday 8th April 2024. Beginning Mexico, it will move across the United States from Texas to Maine, ending in Canada’s Atlantic coast.   In the USA, while the partial solar...
Hualien County area of Taiwan has been stuck with a powerful earthquake of magnitude (ML) 7.2 on 03 April 2024 at 07:58:09 hours local time. The epicentre was 23.77°N, 121.67°E 25.0 km SSE of Hualien County Hall at a focal...
A High-Level Conference on Science Communication 'Unlocking the Power of Science Communication in Research and Policy Making', was held in Brussels on 12 and 13 March 2024.  The conference was co-organised by the Research Foundation Flanders (FWO), Fund for...
A new image of the “FS Tau star system” taken by the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) has been released on 25 March 2024. In the new image, jets emerge from the cocoon of a newly forming star to blast across...
The formation of our home galaxy Milky Way began 12 billion years ago. Since then, it has undergone a sequence of mergers with other galaxies and grew in mass and size. The remnants of building blocks (i.e., galaxies that...
In the last 500 million years, there have been at least five episodes of mass extinctions of life-forms on the Earth when more than three-quarters of the existing species got eliminated. The last such large-scale life extinction occurred due...
A team of researchers led by Basem Gehad of Supreme Council of Antiquities of Egypt and Yvona Trnka-Amrhein of University of Colorado has uncovered the upper part of the statue of King Ramses II in the Ashmunin region in...
A fossilised forest comprising of fossil trees (known as Calamophyton), and vegetation-induced sedimentary structures has been discovered in the high sandstone cliffs along the Devon and Somerset coast of Southwest England. This dates from 390 million years ago which...
James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) has taken near-infrared and mid-infrared images of the star-forming region NGC 604, located nearby in the neighbourhood of home galaxy. The images are most detailed ever and offer unique opportunity to study high concentration...
Europa, one of the largest satellites of Jupiter has a thick water-ice crust and a vast subsurface saltwater ocean beneath its icy surface hence suggested to be one of the most promising places in the solar system to harbour...
A new species of sea slug, named Pleurobranchaea britannica, has been discovered in the waters off the southwest coast of England. This is the first recorded instance of a sea slug from the Pleurobranchaea genus in UK waters.  It is a...
Alfred Nobel, the entrepreneur better known for inventing dynamite who made fortunes from explosives and arms business and bequeathed his wealth to institute and endow “prizes to those who, during the preceding year, have conferred the greatest benefit to humankind”....
In a study reported recently, astronomers observed the SN 1987A remnant using James Webb Space Telescope (JWST). The results showed emission lines of ionized argon and other heavily ionised chemical species from the centre of the nebula around SN...
LignoSat2, the first wooden artificial satellite developed by Kyoto University’s Space Wood Laboratory is scheduled to be jointly launched by JAXA and NASA this year will have outside structure made of Magnolia wood.   It will be a small-sized satellite (nanosat)....
A new study indicates that the two iron artefacts (a hollow hemisphere and a bracelet) in the Treasure of Villena were made using extra-terrestrial meteoritic iron. This suggests that the Treasure was produced in the Late Bronze Age before...
Radio frequency based deep space communication faces constraints due to low bandwidth and increasing need of high data transmission rates. Laser or optical based system has potential to break the communication constraints. NASA has tested laser communications against extreme...
Homo sapiens or the modern human evolved around 200,000 years ago in East Africa near modern-day Ethiopia. They lived in Africa for a long time. About 55,000 years ago they dispersed to different parts of the world including to...
The Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA) mission has received the go ahead of European Space Agency (ESA). This paves the way for developing the instruments and spacecrafts commencing January 2025. The mission is led by ESA and is a...
The fungus Penicillium roqueforti is used in the production of blue-veined cheese. The exact mechanism behind the unique blue-green colour of the cheese was not well understood. University of Nottingham researchers have unravelled how the classic blue-green veining is...
CERN’s seven decades of scientific journey has been marked by milestones like "discovery of fundamental particles W boson and Z boson responsible for weak nuclear forces", development of world’s most powerful particle accelerator called Large Hadron Collider (LHC) that...
Astronomers have recently reported detection of such a compact object of about 2.35 solar masses in the globular cluster NGC 1851 in our home galaxy Milkyway. Because this is at the lower end of “black hole mass-gap", this compact object...
