Candidate Resonant Tetraneutron State Populated by the $^{4}\mathrm{He}(^{8}\mathrm{He},^{8}\mathrm{Be})$ Reaction

Candidate Resonant Tetraneutron State Populated by the $^{4}\mathrm{He}(^{8}\mathrm{He},^{8}\mathrm{Be})$ Reaction | Monthly physics breaking news | Scoop.it
Evidence that the four-neutron system known as the tetraneutron exists as a resonance has been uncovered in an experiment at the RIKEN Radioactive Ion Beam Factory.
Concettina Sfienti's insight:
Candidate for a tetraneutron completely unnoticed because of the simultaneous news about observation of gravitational waves. It might also become a result to remember!

Young black hole had monstrous growth spurt

Super-massive object found in early Universe tests theories of cosmic evolution.
Concettina Sfienti's insight:

Astronomers have found a 12 billion solar mass black hole only 900 Myr after the big bang. Such an heavy object represents a challenge for our current understanding of the Universe. How could we have such a massive BH when the Universe was so young? Gravitational collapse cannot create something that big (12 billion suns) in such a short (900 Myr) time!

Proton's magnetism measured with greatest precision yet

Proton's magnetism measured with greatest precision yet | Monthly physics breaking news | Scoop.it
Physicists raise the bar in race to find discrepancies between matter and antimatter.
Concettina Sfienti's insight:

Researchers have made the most precise ever direct measurement of the magnetic moment of a proton. The work will help providing an answer to one of the most fundamental questions of why we exist at all. It is believed that the Big Bang some 13 billion years ago generated equal amounts of matter and antimatter -- which annihilate when they collide -- and yet the universe today seems to contain only matter.

Concettina Sfienti's insight:

You’ve probably heard about a new scientific discovery, announced a couple of weeks ago under the title “Gravitational waves detected”. Well actually they haven’t been directly ….

The best description of what actually has been detected and in which way this is correlated with a primordial gravitational waves is the explanation of Sean Carroll (Caltech) in his blog
