High-energy particles that make up M87’s jet are shooting out from a region near the event horizon, and has been observed to be mysteriously dimming and brightening in previous Hubble data. The massive jet can be seen in the X-ray image above from NASA's Chandra observatory.

NASA spots massive jet of high-energy particles spewing more than 1,000 light-years into space from the first black hole scientists have ever directly imaged

The question should be asked: are we looking at the wrong phenomenon and should be debating global cooling?

When pollsters realized the public and elected officials weren’t buying global warming as a concept or policy, in a brilliant political move, they came up with the phrase “climate change.”

Transferring neural data to and from supercomputers in the cloud is likely to be the ultimate bottleneck in B/CI development.

A future ‘human brain/cloud interface’ will give people instant access to vast knowledge via thought alone

Imagery shows the dusty ring - or torus - which circles the enormous black hole.

First-ever direct image of the dusty ‘torus’ ring surrounding a supermassive black hole is captured by scientists

Binary star formation through disk fragmentation starts with a young star surrounded by a rotating disk of gas and dust. The disk fragments, with a second star forming within the disk, surrounded by its own disk. The two stars form an orbiting pair.
