When helium behaves like a black hole  

Burlington, VT (SPX) Mar 23, 2017 A team of scientists has discovered that a law controlling the bizarre behavior of black holes out in space - is also true for cold helium atoms that can be studied in laboratories. "It's called an entanglement area law," says Adrian Del Maestro, a physicist at the University of Vermont who co-led the research. That this law appears at both the vast scale of outer space and at the tiny scale of

Giant magnetic fields in the universe  

Bonn, Germany (SPX) Mar 23, 2017 Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light-years. This makes them the most extended mag

Unravelling Earth's magnetic field  

Paris (ESA) Mar 23, 2017 ESA's Swarm satellites are seeing fine details in one of the most difficult layers of Earth's magnetic field to unpick - as well as our planet's magnetic history imprinted on Earth's crust. Earth's magnetic field can be thought of as a huge cocoon, protecting us from cosmic radiation and charged particles that bombard our planet in solar wind. Without it, life as we know it would not exist.

Random Chance: A Primary Driver of Cancer Mutations?  

Whether we like to or not, we're all gamblers. Every waking moment, countless stem cells inside our bodies are dividing in order to replace worn out biological machinery. But every time these perfectly healthy cells divide, roughly three mistakes occur in the genetic code—no one's perfect. These mutations, though unpredictable, are typically benign, but sometimes this molecular game of Roulette takes an unlucky turn. "Most of the time these mutations don't do any harm; they...

The Slow Life Movement: A Microbial Perspective of the Subsurface Biosphere  

On the seafloor, "marine snow" is constantly falling.

Over time, this snow - along with sediment mineral grains - accumulates, burying previous layers. In Denmark's Aarhus Bay, for example, digging ten meters down beneath the seafloor is like going ...
