Matter will be created from light within a year, claim scientists

Matter will be created from light within a year, claim scientists | Science, Technology | Scoop.it

Researchers have worked out how to make matter from pure light and are drawing up plans to demonstrate the feat within the next 12 months.

 

In a neat demonstration of E=mc2, physicists believe they can create electrons and positrons from colliding photons.

 

"We have shown in principle how you can make matter from light," said Steven Rose at Imperial. "If you do this experiment, you will be taking light and turning it into matter."

 

The scientists are not on the verge of a machine that can create everyday objects from a sudden blast of laser energy. The kind of matter they aim to make comes in the form of subatomic particles...

Milky Way Galaxy may have more than 11 billion Earth-like planets

Milky Way Galaxy may have more than 11 billion Earth-like planets | Science, Technology | Scoop.it

Our Milky Way galaxy is crowded with far more habitable Earth-like planets than previously thought - at least 11 billion of them in orbit around distant stars, a team of planet hunters led by UC Berkeley astronomers said Monday.

 

Erik Petigura, a Berkeley graduate student, analyzed data from the Kepler spacecraft and calculated that at least 50 billion stars much like Earth's sun are blazing throughout the galaxy.

 

It's possible that even more Earth-like planets exist than Petigura estimates, for his analysis takes into account only one class of hot stars that are known to be very much like our sun. There are other stars called red dwarfs that are about the size of our sun only cooler, and many so-called "exoplanets" may be circling them too, he said.

there are moor earth like planets out there thats incredible I've always dreamed there could be just like you proboble. And the number of them, my goodness, 11 billion habitable planets in our galaxy and they were escoverd (mostly) by one team. Just by analizing data from the Kepler spacecraft, one man Erik Petigura by himself found 50 billion gust by looking at the stars that were like our sun. And there could be moor then how many Petigura esemated. His metheds arrent the most reliable methods, there could be alot moor then he estemates. Even though red dwarfs are cooler they could have earth like planets orbiting them.TP

Scott provides good insights into where the technology of today is, and where it may go:

 

"Just as smartphones moved technology and communications off of the desktop and into your hand, there is every reason to expect that wearable technology will eventually replace smartphones. While having the Internet in your hand seems like a miracle now, to our kids--who may see it from glasses or hide it in their jewelry and operate it with just a few gestures--physical texting and pushing a button to receive a phone call will be so "last century."


What are your thoughts on wearable technology? Privacy vs benefits?

Neptune is plugged-in - a season lasting 40 years and heat from the planet's power plant

Neptune is plugged-in - a season lasting 40 years and heat from the planet's power plant | Science, Technology | Scoop.it

It is principally electrical energy and not internal thermal energy that powers Neptune’s winds. Having the strongest winds in the Solar System, while being farthest from the Sun contradicts any thermal models and convection currents.

 

There are still many chapters ahead in the story of Neptune. Conventional theory cannot be used to make sense of the data.

 

Understanding Neptune might provide information that will help planetary scientists to better understand weather systems on our own planet.
