Physicists have just caught light acting the part of ‘glue’ between atoms, in a kind of loosely bonded molecule. “We have succeeded for the first time in polarizing several atoms together in a controlled way, creating a measurable attractive force between them,” says University of Innsbruck physicist Matthias Sonnleitner. Atoms connect to form molecules in a

The discovery of multiple exoplanets that appear to be shrinking appears to resolve a ‘missing link’ in planetary evolution. Four mini-Neptunes in close proximity to their stars have been found leaking their atmospheres at a rate consistent with eventual total loss. This suggests that these worlds will eventually shrink into terrestrial, roughly Earth-sized planets –

Cave explorers have traversed what’s now the deepest known cave in Australia. On Saturday, a group of explorers discovered a 401-meter-deep cave, which they named Delta Variant, in Tasmania’s Niggly-Growling Swallet cave system within the Junee-Florentine karst area. Its depth just beat out its predecessor, the Niggly Cave, by about 4 meters. With a descent

Australian farmers mysteriously found space debris scattered across their fields last month. An astrophysicist who examined the junk now believes it was from a SpaceX flight. People near Dalgety, New South Wales, found three large pieces of debris, with the largest – a 10-foot-tall triangular structure – found planted firmly into the ground, the Australian Broadcasting

One in five adults in Michigan doesn’t have children and isn’t planning on starting a family any time soon. Regardless of fertility, childfree adults have decided to opt out of parenthood entirely. “We estimate 21.64 percent of Michigan adults are #childfree,” Michigan State University (MSU) sociologist Zarchary Neal wrote in a tweet about the study. He’s

A newly developed, water-activated disposable paper battery promises to make a big impact on single-use electronics – those temporary gadgets used in medical and industrial fields where electronic waste can quickly start piling up. The battery that has been demonstrated by researchers is biodegradable, made from sustainable materials, and cheap to put together. What’s more,

A Polish scientific institute has categorized domestic cats as an “invasive alien species.”  The Polish Academy of Sciences has defined the house cat (Felis catus) as “alien” as it was domesticated in the Middle East and has deemed cats as “invasive” due to the “negative influence of domestic cats on native biodiversity,” they explained in a

A farm in England was the unlikely source of a Jurassic jackpot: A treasure trove of 183 million-year-old fossils. On the outskirts of Gloucestershire in the Cotswolds, beneath soil that is currently trampled under the hooves of grazing cattle, researchers recently uncovered the fossilized remains of fish, giant marine reptiles called ichthyosaurs, squids, insects, and

Grab any physics textbook and you’ll find formula after formula describing how things wobble, fly, swerve and stop. The formulas describe actions we can observe, but behind each could be sets of factors that aren’t immediately obvious. Now, a new AI program developed by researchers at Columbia University has seemingly discovered its own alternative physics.

In a time when flaunting your best self on social media has become a norm, narcissistic traits seem to be everywhere.  In today’s slang, off-putting behaviors like entitlement, superiority, and self-congratulating are known as ‘flexing’. Such traits might be more common these days, but being narcissistic is still seen as a pathological personality trait, akin to
