Scientists Say They’ve Determined The Total Amount of Matter in The Universe – ScienceAlert

The stuff that makes up our Universe is tricky to measure, to put it mildly. We know that most of the Universe's matter-energy density consists of dark energy, the mysterious unknown force that's driving the Universe's expansion. And we know that the rest is matter, both normal and dark. Accurately figuring out the proportions of…

Time travel isn’t as dangerous as we think, study says – BGR

Researchers say that if you’re worried about paradoxes in time travel, you shouldn’t be. Based on a lot of complex math, the team says they’ve determined that paradoxes related to time travel would be self-correcting. For example, you could go back and interact with your past self without ruining your future or even changing it…

H2O Is Deceptively Complicated: First-Ever Measurements Show Supercooled Water Is Really Two Liquids in...

First-ever measurements provide evidence that extremely cold liquid water exists in two distinct structures that co-exist and vary in proportion dependent on temperature. Supercooled water is really two liquids in one. That’s the conclusion reached by a research team at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory after making the first-ever measurements of…
