Scientists Reveal The Most Distant Galaxy We’ve Ever Found : ScienceAlert

A galaxy whose light has traveled nearly 13.5 billion years to reach us has just been confirmed as the earliest galaxy found to date. By studying the oxygen content of the galaxy with the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), astronomers have precisely dated it to just 367 million years after the Big Bang, a time …

Fresh Questions About Oxytocin as the ‘Love Hormone’ Behind Pair Bonding

Summary: The “love hormone” oxytocin may not play as critical a role in bonding as previously believed. Removing the oxytocin receptor in animal models still resulted in monogamous mating, attachment, and parental bonding behaviors, although females without the receptor produced milk in smaller quantities. Findings reveal parenting and bonding aren’t purely dictated by oxytocin receptors. …

How To See Green Comet Zooming Our Way For First Time In 50,000 Years

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — A comet is streaking back our way after 50,000 years. The dirty snowball last visited during Neanderthal times, according to NASA. It will come within 26 million miles (42 million kilometers) of Earth Wednesday before speeding away again, unlikely to return for millions of years. So do look up, contrary …

Study achieves the coherent manipulation of electron spins in silicon

Electrons in silicon experience a coupling between their spin (up and down arrows) and valley states (blue and red orbitals). In the presence of a DC voltage (blue glow) an electron can undergo coherent spin-valley oscillation. Image credit: Mike Osadciw. In recent years, many physicists and computer scientists have been working on the development of …
