Jupiter’s early formation acted as an effective barrier against inward transport of material across the solar system disk, potentially explaining why our solar system lacks any super-Earths. Effectivelly protecting the Earth. Jupiter’s core grew to about 20 Earth masses within 1 million years, then to about 50 Earth masses for 3-4 million years before it’s final 300 EMs.
China has finished the largest floating (40 megawatts) solar farm in the entire world in the past week.
Hubble produces evidence of gravitational microlensing of stars, predicted by Einstein in 1919.
Regenerative dental fillings allow teeth to heal themselves—potentially eliminating the need for the high-pitched drilling inherent in root canals.
A team including several Carnegie scientists has developed a form of ultrastrong, lightweight carbon that is also elastic and electrically conductive. A material with such a unique combination of properties could serve a wide variety of applications from aerospace engineering to military armor.
