Unleashing the power of T-rays
Radio waves, microwaves, X-rays - electromagnetic radiation that we can't actually see is exploited in a number of familiar technologies. But there is still a lot of potential to unlock, notably in the terahertz part of the spectrum. An EU-funded project is conducting research into innovative semiconductors that could open up exciting new possibilities. (Source: EUROPA - Research Information Centre)

A Leonardo da Vinci Painting Just Sold for $450 Million. Here ’s How Experts Figured Out It Was Real
For a painting worth nearly half a billion dollars, Leonardo da Vinci’s Salvator Mundi is far from perfect. The 500-year-old portrait of Jesus Christ has a shady past that includes ownership by King Charles I, a 160-year disappearing act and a sale for only thousands of dollars just 12 years ago. It is damaged and was heavily repainted, then restored. And at least one prominent da Vinci expert is on record saying he doesn’t believe da Vinci was the primary artist behind it. But the 15-by-17 portrait overcame all of that Wednesday night when it sold at auction to an anonymous buyer for a gob-smacking $450.3 mil...

(CAIRO) — Scientists have found a hidden chamber in Egypt’s Great Pyramid of Giza, the first such discovery in the structure since the 19th century and one likely to spark a new surge of interest in the pharaohs. In an article published in the journal Nature on Thursday, an international team said the 30-meter (yard) void deep within the pyramid is situated above the structure’s Grand Gallery, and has a similar cross-section. The purpose of the chamber is unclear, and it’s not yet known whether it was built with a function in mind. The scientists made the discovery using cosmic-ray imaging, recordin...

Spectacular Images Show How Our View of the Universe Has Evolved
Unveiling The Universe NASA/ESA/The Hubble Heritage Team The human species is ever-changing and with it our view of the universe. By Jeffrey Kluger It’s easy to laugh at the ancient humans who thought of the nighttime sky as a sort of cosmic colander, but the idea made an intuitive kind of sense. In the evening, a gigantic bowl with thousands of pinprick holes is inverted over the Earth—or so the thinking went. The sun, suspended above it all, streams through in a brilliant scattering of starry points. Over the centuries, we slowly came to a clearer understanding of the structure and workings of the universe,...

4 Surprising Facts About the Universe We Just Discovered in a Cosmic Breakthrough
News from space always arrives late — and in a discovery announced Monday, that meant 130 million years late. It was that long ago that two neutron stars in Galaxy NGC 4993, in the Hydra constellation, spiraled in toward one another and collided in a titanic eruption, sending out waves of energy that literally shook our world. The shaking happened on Aug. 17 at 8:41 a.m. E.T., as gravitational waves released by the event — ripples in spacetime that Albert Einstein first predicted in 1915 but weren’t confirmed until a full century later — at last reached and passed through the Earth.
