Normal People star Paul Mescal was incredibly nervous when filming the show s rather steamy storyline. The new craze, which dropped onto BBC Three just last month, follows students Connell (Mescal) and Marianne (Daisy Edgar Jones) as they move from secondary school through to university.
What black hole image tells us Black Hole: From where no light can escape First supermassive black hole photographed to be named Powehi As the black hole spins, it drags spacetime around with it, leading to the precession of the inner puffed up accretion disk. (Representational Image: National Science Foundation) Astronomers have discovered a black hole, almost 8,000 light years from Earth, pumping rapidly swinging plasma jets into the surrounding universe at a speed so fast that it is dragging spacetime. The research, published in the journal Nature, shows jets from V404 Cygni;s black hole behaving in a way never seen before on such short timescales. The jets appear to be rapidly rotating with high speed clouds of plasma potentially just minutes apart shooting out of the black hole in different directions. "This is one of the most extraordinary black hole systems I have ever come across, " said Associate Professor James Miller Jones, from the Australia 's Curtin University node of the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR).
Mauricio Pochettino is not optimistic that Harry Kane could feature for Spurs before the end of the season but he has refused to rule out his star striker from doing so.The 25 year old sustained significant ligament damage to his ankle in the second half of Spurs 1 0 win over Manchester City last Tuesday and no timescale has been placed on his recovery.
Researchers have independently confirmed, for the first time, the detection of methane on Mars. For fifteen years, various research groups have claimed to see traces of methane in Mars atmosphere. Intriguingly, these often appear as puffs of gas that appear and disappear over short timescales. Groups have hotly debated whether the methane might be evidence of life, or merely geologic processes. Other researchers have argued whether the methane truly exists at all, or if the detections are merely errors.Now, a group using data from the European Space Agency s Mars Express spacecraft says they identified methane above Gale Crater on June 16, 2013, just one day after NASA s Curiosity rover noticed a methane spike from the ground in Gale Crater. This marks the first confirmed finding of an important substance in the hunt for life on the Red Planet.
A team of astronomers, including the Microlensing Observations in Astrophysics (MOA), the Optical Gravitational Lensing Experiment (OGLE) and the Korea Microlensing Telescope Network (KMTNet) Collaboration, has employed this method to detect a new system composed of at least one brown dwarf. The researchers have analyzed the microlensing event MOA 2015 BLG 337, first observed by MOA using the 1.8 m MOA II telescope at Mount John University Observatory (MJUO) in New Zealand. The analysis resulted in a discovery of a new system designated MOA 2015 BLG 337L."In this paper, we report the discovery and present the analysis of the short timescale binary microlensing event, MOA 2015 BLG 337. We find two competing models that explain the observed data. One comprises a planetary mass ratio lens system and the other, a binary mass ratio lens system," the researchers wrote in the paper.
Variable star KIC 8462852, also known as Tabby s Star and Boyajian s Star, is located more than 1,000 light years from Earth. It s about 50 percent larger than our Sun, and nearly 1,000 degrees hotter. But thanks to observations made by the Kepler Space Telescope from 2009 to 2013, we know that this otherwise normal star experiences sporadic and intermittent dimming (at least from our vantage point on Earth). These mysterious drops in luminosity are by as much as 22 percent, sometimes lasting for days. A recent historical analysis of Tabby s Star showed that changes to the object s overall brightness are on timescales lasting for years to centuries. Astronomers hadn t seen anything quite like it before, leading to a stream of theories. Explanations included a swarm of comets, a recently annihilated planet, a distorted star, gravity darkening, and even alien megastructures.
And yes, one moviemaker s cool is another s I didn t get to see any films, I was rolling my eyes so hard so that s why we ask a broad, certified hip panel of film festival veterans to nominate their circuit favorites, then present the top of the crop. These fine folk have logged Academy Awards, national theater franchises, and lots of mescal sorry, moviemaking between them. They ll show you the way.Every year, before we receive the nominations, we think we ve seen it all and while, yes, there are a handful of repeat offender fests in the following line up, we never fail to learn about at least a few events we ve never heard of, but are immediately desperate to attend. Some other findings this year: The beach is where everyone wants to be. Florida is getting cooler than ever. If you re a genre nut, you better speak Spanish. And, finally, coolness can be found anywhere in the world (yes, even New Jersey ). So go out, make some memories, and tell us about them next year.
Zewail won the Nobel prize for chemistry in 1999 for his groundbreaking work in the study of chemical reactions in extremely short timescales
A research team led by Thomas Kallinger from the University of Vienna, in association with several astronomers around the globe including University of British Columbia;s Professor Jaymie Matthews, set out to create a formula to calculate how much a person would weigh on another star. The team knew the surface gravity of a star, if stars had a surface to be stood on, was related to the timescale of turbulence and vibration at the star;s surface. Using this knowledge, the team found that variations in the brightness of distant stars can thereby be used to calculate surface gravity.The previous technique astronomers used, based on a star 's light and brightness, was only useful in calculating the gravity of stars relatively close to our planet.
