Unlike conventional soft conductors, it exhibits remarkable electrical stability even when deformed. This is due to the material's unique structure and a nanoscopic insulating thin film coating.
The Storegga event, which happened off the coast of Norway, is one of the largest underwater landslides known. It happened about 8,150 years ago after the last ice age ended and caused a huge tsunami that destroyed the North Atlantic and what was then the North Sea.
Previously, scientists believed that the majority of Earth's volatiles came from asteroids that formed closer to the Earth. The findings provide important insights into how Earth came to have the unique conditions required for life to thrive.
Researchers using MeerKAT have found nine millisecond pulsars, the majority of them in uncommon and occasionally unusual binary systems.
The Hicks non-reversing mirror is a single, smoothly curved piece of glass that shows a non-reversed image.
Objects from more than 13 billion years ago, among them Maisies Galaxy, are included in two new images from NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope.
