Physics: Not everything is where it seems to be

Scientists at TU Wien, the University of Innsbruck and the ÖAW have for the first time demonstrated a wave effect that can lead to measurement errors in the optical position estimation of objects. The work now published ...

Dense stellar clusters may foster black hole megamergers

When LIGO's twin detectors first picked up faint wobbles in their respective, identical mirrors, the signal didn't just provide first direct detection of gravitational waves—it also confirmed the existence of stellar binary ...

Researchers at University of La Rioja (Spain) have developed a new method to eliminate artificial satellites in highly elliptical orbits when they finish their missions. The methodology, which reduces both cost and risk, ...

Scientists provide new data on the nature of dark matter

Recent research conducted by scientists from the University of Granada sheds light on the nature of dark matter, one of the most important mysteries in physics. As indirect evidence provided by its gravitational effects, ...

Study suggests black hole jets get their power from spin

(Phys.org) —A team of space scientists working in Italy has found more evidence that suggests the energy needed to emit jets from supermassive black holes comes from the spin of the black hole itself. In their paper published ...
