First radio images of HD 53143 shed new light on early development of solar-like systems Astronomy & Astrophysics News

Using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), astronomers have imaged the debris disk of nearby star HD 53143 at millimeter wavelengths for the first time, and it appears nothing as they expected. Based on early coronagraphic data, scientists expected ALMA to confirm that the debris disk was a face-on ring strewn with clumps of dust. … Read more

“I first thought of an attack”: a building under construction collapses in Vincennes, a light injury according to a provisional report

IBM sketches out a future of ultra-fast computing, where “liquid” light dances

The words “photonics”, “terahertz”, “nanosecond” or “liquid light” made our mouths water… During a trip that invited the press to discover (a little) the secrets of its European research laboratory in Zürich, IBM presented us with a burgeoning technology, even more experimental than quantum computing. Its name: the photonic processor. His goal ? Solve very … Read more

Nvidia and Stanford offer thin and light holographic glasses

If virtual reality and its cousin, augmented reality, have failed to set the world on fire, it’s no doubt in large part because of what could technically be called the “cheesy factor”. Smart glasses used to see in a virtual world look terrible to all but the most hardened nerds. Facebook’s Oculus Unity glasses have … Read more
