Although Saturn sports the most impressive ring system in our neighborhood, it's not alone. Uranus is also packing some rings, although they're usually too faint to see without a powerful telescope. But a striking new set of images shows these rings in very clear detail thanks to thermal imaging, while also allowing astronomers to measure their temperature for the first time... Continue Re

Saturn's rings may not only vanish in 100 million years, but they may have only been around for as little as 10 million years. Using data gathered in the last days of NASA's Cassini mission, a team led by Luciano Iess of Sapienza University of Rome has concluded that the iconic rings may have been created by a disintegrating comet between 10 and 100 million years ago...

CERN, the European research organization responsible for operating the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), has released a report outlining a proposed particle accelerator that would be nearly four times as long and 10 times as powerful as its predecessor. Dubbed the Future Circular Collider (FCC) – for the time being at least – the LHC's successor would cost around €9 billion (US$10.26 billion) a
Ring basically popularized the video doorbell, but they aren't for everybody – maybe you're renting the place and can't wire in a permanent device. But at CES this week the company is shooting for those people with the new Ring Door View Cam. This new battery-powered unit is designed to slot into an existing peephole, so it can be easily installed and removed later...
