No Chile, o radiotelescópio ALMA capta as ondas submilimétricas e produz imagens claras e definidas de partes do Universo nas quais os telescópios ópticos só enxergam escuridão Por Fábio de Castro Astronomia do invisível O Grande Arranjo Milimétrico e Submilimétrico do Atacama (ALMA) foi projetado para observar características ocultas das estrelas e galáxias distantes que são invisíveis para os telescópios ópticos. O ALMA foi construído e é operado pelo Observatório Europeu do Sul (ESO) - que tem outros importantes telescópios no Chile -, em parceria com o Observatório Nacional de Rad...mais »
Researchers ‘Transfer’ a Memoryby Neuroscience News A new study reports researchers have successfully generated an artificial memory by injecting a sea snail with the RNA from another. Researchers say this approach could lead to new treatments to restore memory and alter traumatic memories in humans.

Three dramatic new ways to visualize brain tissue and neuron circuits May 7, 2018 [image: The "dentate gyrus" section of a transgenic mouse, imaged and colored-coded to reveal the distribution of the nerve cells. (credit: The University of Hong Kong)] May lead to breakthroughs in tracking brain disorders such as autism, schizophrenia, and Alzheimer's Visualizing human brain tissue in vibrant transparent colors Neuroscientists from The University of Hong Kong (HKU) and Imperial College London have developed a new method called “OPTIClear” for 3D transparent color visualization (at the...mais »
[image: Gaia spacecraft image] The most spaced out story Data from the European Space Agency’s *Gaia spacecraft inspired a cluster of papers with cosmic insights*, described this week by physics writer Emily Conover. By measuring stars’ motions and distances, Gaia gets spacey in ways the Starship Enterpris*e* never imagined. For instance, Gaia enabled scientists to estimate that the Milky Way, Earth’s galactic home, is about 1.7 trillion times the mass of the sun. The spacecraft also led to the identification of three stars speeding through the galaxy that may have gotten their zip f...mais »
from brainpickings.org by Maria Popova The “Pale Blue Dot” photograph captured by the *Voyager 1* (NASA/JPL) In describing what the *Voyager* captured in that grainy photograph of mostly empty space, Sagan limned Earth as a “pale blue dot.” That became the moniker of the photograph itself and the title of hisbestselling book published later that year, in which he wrote that “everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives” on this “mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.”/.../
