Artificial intelligence and data mining are being used to measure aerodynamic flows

Wind tunnel experiment using particle image velocimetry technique. Credit: UC3M Developing new ways to measure turbulent flows that are more efficient and reliable is the main objective of the NEXTFLOW research project at the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M), funded by an ERC Starting Grant from the European Union. These techniques, which use new … Read more

A framework to simulate the same physics using two different Hamiltonians

Fidelity between quantum states generated by the one-axis twisting Hamiltonian and the states generated by the Heisenberg XXX model with staggered field. Credit: Gietka et al. Researchers at Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University in Japan have recently been investigating situations in which two distinct Hamiltonians could be used to simulate the same … Read more

Hubble spots double quasars in merging galaxies

NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope is “seeing double.” Peering back 10 billion years into the universe’s past, Hubble astronomers found double quasars in merging galaxies that are so close to each other they look like a single object in ground-based telescopic photos, but not in Hubble’s crisp view. The researchers believe the quasars are very close … Read more

Saturn’s Moon Titan the Second Largest Satellite

Saturn’s moon Titan is the largest satellite orbiting Saturn. It is an icy world whose surface is completely concealed by a golden hazy atmosphere. Titan is the second-largest moon in our solar system. Only Jupiter’s moon Ganymede is larger, by just 2 percent. Saturn’s moon Titan is a lot bigger than Earth’s moon and has … Read more

8 Planets of the Solar System

How many planets are there in the solar system? It’s a silly question, huh. There total of 8 planets in the solar system nowadays. Today, you are going to know about those 8 planets of the solar system. There were not 8 planets always, before 2006, Pluto was also in the league. During the 26th … Read more

WFIRST Will Use Relativity to Find More Exoplanets!

We, humans, are continuously expanding our research and reach into space. Moving further in the search of more celestial objects, NASA is planning to send  Wide-Field Infrared Survey Telescope (WFIRST), to space in 2025. The objective of this next-generation telescope will be searching for extra solar planets. It has a 2.4-meter telescope, 18 detectors, a 300-megapixel … Read more
