Astronomers discovered a satellite near a large celestial body far beyond the orbit of Neptune. It is very difficult to study Trans-Neptunian objects (tnos). They are too far from the Sun, and therefore reflect very little light. TRANS-Neptunian Objects (TNOs) are thought to be among the least evolved relics of the solar system formation, residing in the outer parts of the solar system, where the influence of the Sun is less severe than in the inner parts of the solar system.
There is a conundrum pertaining to the possibility of universes expanding in all directions at the same rate. According to the Hubble Law, the clusters of galaxies are further away than they should be. Therefore, hypothetically speaking, the universe is not expanding in all directions at the same rate. Edwin Hubble observed the relation between distance and recession velocity of galaxies in 1929.
Presently, physicists have not reached any consensus pertaining to the explanation of x-ray radiation from space by the decay of dark matter particles. The phenomenon still remains a mystery. Dark matter continues to be a contested topic among many physicists around the globe. There is no plausible resolution about the x-rays and the dark matter.
It is highly likely in the near future two scenarios will occur:
Last month, a study was published in the Astrophysical Journal by the New Horizons Plasma and Particle Team pertaining to the Slowing of the Solar Wind in the Outer Heliosphere. The main purpose of the study is to gain a better understanding of how the solar wind evolves with increasing distance from the Sun as it encounters an increasing amount of interstellar material.
Nobel Prize in Physics is a yearly award given by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences for those who have made the most outstanding contributions for mankind in the field of physics. The 2019 Nobel Prize in physics depends on the atomic physics.
The 2019 Nobel Prize is split between Michel Mayor (University Geneva), Didier Queloz (University of Geneva, University of Cambridge) and James Peebles ( Princeton University) for the discovery of an exoplanet orbiting a solar-type star, which is based on the radial velocity method. Also known as Doppler spectroscopy, it is the most effective method for locating extrasolar planets with existing technology.
An American astrophysicist Julian B. Muñoz found a process to study the universe during an earlier era of its formation. Muñoz is a theoretical cosmologist at Harvard. After the Massive Explosion (Big Bang), the universe was hot quark gluon plasma, that cooled during the expansion of space. A gluon is an elementary particle that acts as the exchange particle for the strong force between quarks.
Recently, Greta Thunberg became a household name as a global climate change ambassador. However, dire predictions about the survival of our civilization based on the environment has a Soviet era beginning.
Russian scientist Nikolai Kardashev was a Soviet and Russian astrophysicist, Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, and the Deputy Director of the Astro Space Center of PN Lebedev Physical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow. Kardashev, who recently passed away, created a scale in 1964 that is named after him.
The Russian scientists in the Department of Theoretical Mechanics, Samara National Research University discovered an effective method to deal with space debris. Samara National Research University is one of Russia’s leading engineering and technical institutions. It is located in the City of Samara.
