At a distance of about 13 billion lightyears, the most distant supermassive black hole known so far has been spotted by an international team of astronomers. That incredible distance means the object dates back to the time when the first stars blinked on, which raises the question of how a black hole that big arose so soon after the universe began...Continue Reading Mysterious black hole disc
the colourless building will appear to be the darkest black, using vantablack -- a super black material that reflects so little light that it’s described as the closest thing to a black hole.The post asif khan to create ‘black hole’ at the winter olympics, using darkest material in the world appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
After five detections over the last few years, gravitational waves are in danger of becoming boring news. But it's worth keeping in mind just how groundbreaking a discovery it is. After all, these are distortions in the very fabric of spacetime. The precise instruments at the LIGO and Virgo facilities were responsible for these past detections, but now astronomers plan to look for ripples fro

When it comes to cycling in the rain, probably the best way of staying dry is to simply wear a full-body rain suit. Putting it on and taking it off can be a hassle, though, plus you can get pretty hot underneath it. Using a poncho is one alternative, but German inventor Thomas Schmidt has come up with another … it's a bicycle-mounted umbrella that you stick your head through...Continue
Around the end of the last Ice Age, about 13,000 years ago, animals could roam through subterranean passageways in what is now Mexico. But the creatures who reached the end of those passageways often plunged to their death in a pit descending 180 ft (55 m) into the Earth from which there was no escape. Researchers have been exploring that pit, which is now underwater, and discovering a remark

    It was bound to happen sooner or later. The popularity of drones has spread like wildfire in recent years, and with it, the obvious potential for disaster. Until recently, that potential has received the most press where restricted airspace is concerned, and the possibility of crippling a passenger aircraft. Now, a drone operator has admitted to piloting a drone that is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
