gravitational wave discovery

Aloyzio AchuttiemAMICOR - Há um dia
Rumor of gravitational wave discovery is just that, source says By Adrian ChoJan. 12, 2016 If you follow physics, you have likely heard the rumor by now: Physicists working with a pair of gigantic detectors have finally discovered gravitational waves—ripples in space and time set off when, say, two massive neutrons stars spiral into each other—and have only to announce it. It would be a sure-fire Nobel Prize–winning discovery and the rumor sounds plausible. Sensing those waves is exactly what a $500 million project called the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO... mais »

All Multicellular Life On Earth Is The Result Of A Random 600-Million-Year-Old Accident January 12, 2016 | by Janet Fang photo credit: Fluorescence micrograph of a small choanoflagellate colony, with one of its cells dividing. Ken Prehoda Just one random mutation 600 million years ago made it possible for our earliest, single-celled ancestors to evolve into complex organisms. According to a new eLife study, changing the function of one ancient protein led to multicellular life as we know it. Life on Earth consisted of single cells for billions of years.
