Discover the structure of the mysterious blue flame

A team of researchers working at the University of Maryland has discovered the structure of the mysterious blue flame. In their journal work Advances in science, the group describes the use of computer simulations to determine the structure of the unique flame type. Back in 2016, a team of researchers discovered what they described as a whirling blue flame while …

A well-preserved 429-million-year-old eye from an extinct marine creature before dinosaurs existed had a vision comparable to modern-day bees and dragonflies, researchers said Thursday. Fossilized trilobites, magnificent-looking arthropods with segmented bodies and sturdy exoskeletons, are found all over the world. Creatures crawled along the ancient sea during the Paleozoic …

Scientists discover way to make quantum states last 10,000 times longer

A team of scientists at Pritzker University School of Molecular Engineering at Pritzker University announced the discovery of a simple modification that allows quantum systems to stay functional – or “coherent” – 10,000 times longer than before. Credit: University of Chicago If we can utilize it, quantum technology promises fantastic new possibilities. But first, scientists must coordinate quantum systems to …

‘Crocodile tears’ are surprisingly similar to ours

Most of us think of tears as a human phenomenon, part of the complex structure of human emotion. But they are not just for crying: All vertebrates, even reptiles and birds, have tears, which are essential for maintaining healthy eyesight. Now, a new study, published this week in the journal Limits in Veterinary Science, discovers that the tears of non-human …

The strange fading of the Betelgeuse bright star caused by the giant stellar explosion

Betelgeuse’s recent strange fading was caused by a large cloud of material that the supergiant star exploded in space, a new study suggests. Bright star Betelgeuse, which forms the shoulder of the constellation Orion (The Hunter), is about 11 times more massive than the sun, but 900 times more voluminous. This swollen state indicates that Betelgeuse is near death, which …
