Uncontrolled debris from a Chinese space rocket could crash back to Earth as soon as Saturday

According to The Aerospace Corporation, a federally funded space research centre that tracks orbital debris reentry, uncontrolled debris from a Chinese rocket could crash back to Earth as soon as Saturday. China launched a new laboratory module called the Wentian for its Tiangong space station...

Scientists demonstrate machine learning tools to efficiently process complex solar data

For space scientists analyzing vast datasets from increasingly powerful space instrumentation, big data has become a significant challenge. To address this, a team from the Southwest Research Institute created a machine learning tool that efficiently labels large, complex datasets, allowing deep learning models to...

Multi-layered strategies needed to protect public health from oil and gas drilling impacts

Efforts to mitigate the potentially harmful effects of oil and gas drilling are frequently concentrated on a single measure, such as increasing setbacks, the minimum allowable distance between drilling and homes, schools, and other sensitive locations. However, in a commentary published on July 6...

Characterizing the materials for next-generation quantum computers with nonlinear optical spectroscopy

Researchers from Universität Hamburg's Department of Physics and the Cluster of Excellence "CUI: Advanced Imaging of Matter" and the University of California, Irvine have recently proposed a new method for characterising topological superconductors using multi-THz pulse experiments. This paves the way for unambiguously identifying predicted...

Scientists investigate temperature effect on semiconductor optical amplifiers

Temperature's effect on the performance of semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOAs) is an important research topic. Amer Kotb and colleagues from the Chinese Academy of Sciences' Changchun Institute of Optics, Fine Mechanics, and Physics investigated the effect of high temperatures on the performance of various...

A wandering star disrupts the stellar nursery

From a distance, star-forming cloud L483 appears to be normal. However, as a team of astrophysicists led by Northwestern University zoomed in closer and closer, things became increasingly strange. As the scientists got closer to the cloud, they noticed that its magnetic field was strangely...
