Measurements to determine how fast the Universe is expanding over time are known as the Hubble constant. It has been determined by a cosmic distance ladder, calculated by observing pulsating stars called Cepheid variables in a neighboring satellite galaxy known as the Large Magellanic Cloud, 162,000 light-years away.
When defining the distances to galaxies that are further and further away, these Cepheid variables are used as milepost markers.
The analysis factored in the number researchers as percentage of population, patents, papers released, and GDP spending.
DHEA(S) are neurosteroids that help to regulate brain development, but it was previously unknown whether their levels correlate with cognitive function or are associated with the onset of chemobrain.
The study showed that early-stage breast cancer patients with higher plasma DHEAS levels prior to chemotherapy were found to have a lower risk of developing chemobrain in the specific domains of verbal fluency and mental acuity.
What we don't think of is a man running, yet that is what Kilian Jornet Burgada did part of the way in famous photos - and then after 26 hours and 31 minutes, the fastest climb ever(1), he came back down, rested, and did it again, all within a week.
Urban Exposome: The Modern World Has Great Air Quality But You'd Never Know It Reading Environmental Health Perspectives
Poor people live in areas with more pollution, but pollution is relative in 2019.
Power Beaming To Venus, Thermal Mining On Solar Bodies And 16 Other Revolutionary Tech Ideas Funded By NASA
Smart spacesuits and solar surfing may sound like the stuff of science fiction, but they are just two of the technology concepts NASA ha
To be precise, data analysts can be divided further into two classes, as I was once taught by my friend Paolo Giromini (a colleague in the late CDF experiment, about whose chase for new physics I have writtein in my book "Anomaly!"). These are aptly called "gatherers" and "hunters".
Charles Darwin said species evolve to adapt to changing environments. Natural ecosystems – species and their environments – have no ‘purpose’; they just are.
Now, if you believe in a creator deity, you might hold that biological ecosystems do have a (divine) purpose. We’ll come back to this point.
Remarkable Progress On Climate Action After Two Years - 1.5 °C Within Reach - Current Policies 3 °C Well Below Business As Usual
Almost nobody seems to report the positive side of our recent climate change action. It’s remarkable what we’ve done in two years, which gives us much hope that we can indeed rise to the challenge. I have never in my life seen such a coming together of nations worldwide to solve a problem.
And the young particularly are driving action, as in Greta Thunberg’s emotional speech to EU leaders.
Testosterone is the main sex hormone in men. It’s best known for its role in the development of male sexual characteristics and physical features, but there are also many surprising and lesser known functions of testosterone that make it an important hormone in health and disease. Identifying whether someone has too much or too little testosterone can predict future diseases and even treat them. But knowing what is high, low or normal for an individual isn’t straightforward.
These days, anybody with an internet connection can be a publisher.
That doesn’t make everybody a journalist.
This distinction has become more important than ever in light of two recent events.
The shattered vessel was discovered in excavations at the Maya site of Baking Pot in Belize, found amid artifacts associated with the abandonment of the royal palace complex. The fragments were found in a corner near a palace entrance. The archeology team also unearthed blades, pendants, inkpots, fragments of flutes — and human bones - in burial sites.
Americans are becoming more supportive of marijuana legalization each year but the gender gap remains a constant: While 68 percent of men now support marijuana legalization, only 56 percent of women do.
The European Commission pays close attention to document the work of the projects that benefited of its funding. With that intent, the AMVA4NewPhysics network has been described, along with its goals, in a 2016 article on the Horizon magazine.
Bacteria become resistant due to the use of antibiotics and the exchange of resistance genes between bacteria.
Black Hole Photo - Cool Physics - A Day Astronomers Will Remember For Centuries - Nothing To Be Scared Of.htm
First, this is totally harmless. Tiny and far away, shrouded with dust and gas. They can only see it using radio waves that go through the dust. And the photo of course changes nothing, we've know it is there for a long time away. This is a screenshot from the press conference:
And over four separate days:
