Hubble Probes the Archeology of Our Milky Way's Ancient Hub

STSCI-H-p1801a-d-1280x720.png

A new analysis of about 10,000 normal Sun-like stars in the Milky Way's bulge reveals that our galaxy’s hub is a dynamic environment of variously aged stars zipping around at different speeds. This conclusion is based on nine years’ worth of archival data from the Hubble Space Telescope.

What’s the Noise Eating Quantum Bits?

BES-2017-12-s-lrg.jpg

The magnetic noise caused by adsorbed oxygen molecules is “eating at” the phase stability of quantum bits, mitigating the noise is vital for future quantum computers.

New Turkey-Sized Dinosaur From Australia Preserved in an Ancient Log-Jam

Diluvicursorpickeringi2.png

The partial skeleton of a new species of turkey-sized herbivorous dinosaur has been discovered in 113 million year old rocks in southeastern Australia. The fossilized tail and foot bones give new insight into the diversity of the small, bipedal herbivorous dinosaurs called ornithopods.
