NIST’s Compact Gyroscope May Turn Heads

The NIST gyro’s glass atom chamber is just 3.5 cubic centimeters in size. The entire experimental setup, including low-power lasers and optics, is currently tabletop sized, but NIST researchers aim to shrink the whole apparatus down to a portable cube about the size of a mini refrigerator. Described in Applied Physics Letters, the NIST gyro is an atom interferometer. It is based on an expanding cloud of laser-cooled atoms, a technique originally

Can the origin of the first gravitational waves detected be traced back to primordial black holes?

A team of researchers from the University of Tokyo and their collaborators have put forward a novel scenario proposing that the binary black holes—a pair of black holes bound together by gravity and orbiting each other—discovered in

Another Earth? Kepler astronomers pinpoint likeliest candidates

Looking for another Earth? An international team of researchers has pinpointed which of the more than 4,000 exoplanets discovered by NASA's Kepler mission are most likely to be similar to our rocky home. The research, detailed in an article to be published in the Astrophysical Journal, outlines 216 Kepler planets located within the

Astronomers release spectacular survey of the distant Universe

Astronomers at The University of Nottingham have released spectacular new infrared images of the distant Universe, providing the deepest view ever obtained over a large area of sky

Newborn giant planet grazes its star

An international team of astronomers has announced the discovery of a very young hot Jupiter orbiting in the immediate vicinity of a star that is barely two million years old—the stellar equivalent of a week-old infant. This first-ever evidence that hot Jupiters can appear at such an early stage represents a major
