Have We Been Interpreting Quantum Mechanics Wrong This Whole Time? | Science | WIRED

Have We Been Interpreting Quantum Mechanics Wrong This Whole Time? | Science | WIRED | Space, Space Travel, Earth Science and the Future | Scoop.it

Star Is Discovered To Be a Close Neighbor of the Sun and the Coldest of Its Kind — Eberly College of Science | Space, Space Travel, Earth Science and the Future | Scoop.it
A "brown dwarf" star that appears to be the coldest of its kind -- as frosty as Earth's North Pole -- has been discovered by a Penn State University astronomer using NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) and Spitzer Space Telescopes. Images from the space telescopes also pinpointed the object's distance at 7.2 light-years away, making it the fourth closest system to our Sun.
