“Gargantuan Interstellar Shocks” –World’s Scientists Recreate Cosmic Phenomena

collisionless shock wave

 

From MIT to China, physicists are engaged in breathtaking efforts to recreate astrophysical phenomena. Vast interstellar events where clouds of charged matter hurtle into each other and spew out high-energy particles have so far been difficult to reproduce under laboratory conditions that mirror those in an astrophysical setting have now been reproduced at MIT with high fidelity. The work, by MIT researchers and an international team of colleagues, should help resolve longstanding disputes over exactly what takes place in these gigantic shocks.

“The Whole Earth Telescope”–Up Next, the Sun?

 

gravitational lensing

 

Unless there’s a planet more advanced existing in the Milky Way using their star as a lensing telescope, odds are that the “terrascope” proposed by Columbia University’s David Kipping, will be the largest in our home galaxy beyond the black-hole Event Horizon Telescope. The terrascope turns Earth into a kind of lens that could filter out light pollution and artificial satellites, and help find the signatures of life on exoplanets.

“Tuning In to the Big Bang” –New Telescope Radio Technology

ALMA Observatory

 

“Deshima” (or, Dejima) was a Dutch trading post in Japan built in the mid-17th century. For 200 years, Deshima was Japan’s precious window to the world. Now, the two friendly nations open up another window to a new world, the vast Universe, with innovative nanotechnology that can “peer” back to the beginning of time.
