Once they finish their mission

Researchers at University of La Rioja (Spain) have developed a new method to eliminate satellites

Researchers at University of La Rioja (Spain) have developed a new method to eliminate artificial satellites in Highly Elliptical Orbits when they finish their mission. The methodology, which allows for a reduction of both cost and risk, has been tested with the European Space Agency INTEGRAL mission, which will re-enter into the Earth´s atmosphere in order to disintegrate in 2029. Leer más

Body size and shape in the human fossil

Study reveals human body has gone through four stages of evolution

Research into 430,000-year-old fossils collected in northern Spain found that the evolution of the human body´s size and shape has gone through four main stages, according to a paper published this week. Leer más

Animals´ eyes may reveal whether they are the hunter or the hunted

A new study proposes that the pupil shape of an animal indicates whether they are the hunter or the hunted. It seems that the eyes are not only the window to the soul but may also a dead giveaway of your position on the food chain. That´s according to a recently-published study which found a striking correlation between terrestrial species´ pupil shape and ´ecological niche´ – that is, foraging mode and time of day they are active.  Leer más

Could help scientists predict climate change impacts

World´s first digital map of the seafloor´s geology

Scientists from the University of Sydney´s School of Geosciences have led the creation of the world´s first digital map of the seafloor´s geology. The recent study published in Geology describes the first ever comprehensive digital map of our seafloor´s sediment composition, which covers 70 percent of the planet´s surface. The interactive map will not only lead to a better understanding of the he ocean floor, but may help predict how the ocean´s environment will respond to climate change. Leer más

Solar eruption caught by the NASA

NASA´s Solar Dynamics Observatory captured these images earlier this month of an arching eruption on the star´s surface. The kind of eruption shown in this clip is called a ´coronal mass ejection´, where a giant cloud of particles from the sun is thrown into space. The eruption was filmed for 4 hours earlier this month before being sped up in the video. Leer más

Debts and Financial Criss

A new mechanism to explain how a financial crisis happens

Researchers at the Graduate School of Economics, Kobe University and at Columbia University have proposed a new model to predict a financial crisis (a chain of bankruptcies) using a multiplex network model in which debts with different priorities are mutually held by banks. Their results were published in the "Highlight (Synopsis)" section of the online edition of Physics, a journal of the American Physical Society. Leer más

New model of cosmic stickiness favors "Big Rip" demise of universe

A team from Vanderbilt University has come up with a fundamentally new mathematical formulation of the problem that appears to bridge this long-standing gap. The new math has some significant implications for the ultimate fate of the universe. It tends to favor one of the more radical scenarios that cosmologists have come up with known as the "Big Rip." It may also shed new light on the basic nature of dark energy. Leer más
