“Atomic Television” transmits live video through cloud of strange atoms

Researchers at the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have shown that a cloud of atoms can be used as a receiver to pick up video transmissions. The team demonstrated this “Atomic Television” by transmitting live video feed and ev… Continue reading “Atomic Television” transmits live video through cloud of strange atoms

Bizarre radio burst with “heartbeat” rhythm is longest detected by far

Astronomers have detected an extremely strange radio signal from a distant galaxy that pulses with a heartbeat-like rhythm. This signal lasted about 1,000 times longer than other fast radio bursts (FRBs), and had a clear periodic pattern to its pulses….

“Impossible” neutron star spins too slowly and emits 7 types of signals

Astronomers have discovered a super strange neutron star that challenges our understanding of them – but may help unlock the mystery of fast radio bursts (FRBs). The object spins far slower than any other known neutron star, and gives off seven distinc… Continue reading “Impossible” neutron star spins too slowly and emits 7 types of signals

Telescope “sunglasses” reveal brightest extragalactic pulsar ever found

Astronomers have discovered what may be the brightest pulsar in the sky. Despite its intense light the pulsar has long evaded detection, and was only revealed thanks to a telescope equipped with some cosmic “sunglasses.”Continue ReadingCategory: Space,… Continue reading Telescope “sunglasses” reveal brightest extragalactic pulsar ever found
