New biggest radio telescope to help detect alien signals

  New biggest radio telescope to help detect alien signals China plans to build another big radio telescope that could boost the quest to determine if we're alone in the universe, and solve other long-standing mysteries.China plans to amp up its ability to search for aliens, dark matter, gravitational waves and other mysteries of the universe by building the world's largest fully steerable radio telescope.

Despite the violence of the Big Bang, scientists suggest that galaxies forming in the earliest years of the universe were fairly organized places. The university compares the spin to a whirlpool , which is comparable to the motion one would see while observing our own galactic home.

The early universe was a pretty orderly place, not the gigantic mess that some people may imagine when they think about the aftermath of the Big Bang, according to new research.

When a team of scientists took a look into distant galaxies, seeing what those systems looked like when they were forming almost 13 billion years ago, they found that the gases inside them were swirling similarly to the organized motion of the Milky Way despite their young age.

Supersize Stars May Be More Common Than Previously Thought

  Supersize Stars May Be More Common Than Previously Thought Heavyweight stars up to hundreds of times the mass of the sun may be more abundant than previously thought, a new study finds.&nbsp;&nbsp;These findings suggest that black holes and other exotic remnants of dead massive stars may also be more common than previously suspected, and that supersize stars may have played a bigger role in the evolution of the universe than previously predicted.

A study in the journal Nature says the gases in the two primitive galaxies looked like the “turbulent yet rotation-dominated disks” that have been noted in mature galaxies from 2 billion years later.

Their conclusions were based on their study of infrared light emanating from the infant galaxies and show what the universe looked like 800 million years after the Big Bang exploded it into being.

“This is the first time that it has been possible to detect movement in galaxies at such an early point in the universe’s history,” the University of Cambridge said in a statement.

Mystery Solved! Discovery of Organic Molecules Explains Universe's Infrared Glow

  Mystery Solved! Discovery of Organic Molecules Explains Universe's Infrared Glow It is emitted by an organic molecule called benzonitrile, which seems to permeate every part of the known universe. The researchers presented their findings here at the 231st meeting of the American Astronomical Society. Benzonitrile belongs to a class of molecules known as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). While that may sound like a classification of molecules that smell, the term "aromatic" actually has nothing to do with scent in this case. Rather, the term is used in organic chemistry to describe the molecules' ring-like shape.

“Despite their relatively small size — about five times smaller than the Milky Way — these galaxies were forming stars at a higher rate than other young galaxies, but the researchers were surprised to discover that the galaxies were not as chaotic as expected,” according to the university.

The data came from the radio telescopes at the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array in Chile.

“In the early universe, gravity caused gas to flow rapidly into the galaxies, stirring them up and forming lots of new stars — violent supernova explosions from these stars also made the gas turbulent,” research Renske Smit explained in the statement. “We expected that young galaxies would be dynamically ‘messy,’ due to the havoc caused by exploding young stars, but these mini-galaxies show the ability to retain order and appear well regulated.”

Supernovas occur when stars get too big, either because they expand at the ends of their lives or because they swallowed up too much matter from another source, such as a close companion star. They are some of the biggest explosions in the universe.

Russians to get ‘neutral’ grey, red uniforms for Olympics .
The Olympic Athletes from Russia will be wearing grey and red in Pyeongchang. Under an International Olympic Committee ruling last month that formally banned the Russia team, as many as 200 Russians could end up competing under the Olympic flag next month. Russian sportswear company Zasport published on Thursday sketches of what it says are IOC-approved designs for the competitors, who will be officially known as Olympic Athletes from Russia. There are winter coats, tracksuits, and hooded sweaters in grey, as well as an outfit in red with white stripes.
