Hawking: Info Can Escape Black Holes

Stephen HawkingStephen Hawking announced during a lecture at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden on Tuesday that he has potentially solved the Information Paradox. The paradox a conflict between the quantum mechanics and general relativity models that has vexed physicists for more than four decades.

The Information Paradox arises from black holes -- specifically what happens to information about the physical state of objects that fall into one. The quantum mechanical model posits that the information remains intact while general relativity argues that it is indeed obliterated under the black holes immense gravitation. But Hawking has developed a third opinion: the information never actually makes it into the black hole. "I propose that the information is stored not in the interior of the black hole as one might expect, but on its boundary, the event horizon," he said.

Astronomers spot 20 million year young, 'Jupiter-like' planet

New Jupiter-like planetAstronomers have spotted a Jupiter-like planet that could hold the answer to how our solar system was formed.

The planet 51 Eridani b is roughly twice the size of Jupiter and young by planetary standards, at 20 million years old. At 800 degrees Fahrenheit, the planet's surface is still glowing with heat from its creation and offers clues about how it was formed, according to a study published in the journal Science on Thursday.

Scientists say fetal tissue essential for medical research

Scientists need fetal tissue for researchThe furor on Capitol Hill over Planned Parenthood has stoked a debate about the use of tissue from aborted fetuses in medical research, but U.S. scientists have been using such cells for decades to develop vaccines and seek treatments for a host of ailments, from vision loss to cancer and AIDS.

Anti-abortion activists triggered the uproar by releasing undercover videos of Planned Parenthood officials that raised questions of whether the organization was profiting from the sale of fetal tissue. Planned Parenthood has denied making any profit and said it charges fees solely to cover its costs.

Howard Jones, doctor who pioneered in vitro fertilization, dies at 104

Howard JonesHoward Jones, who pioneered in vitro fertilization in the United States at his medical clinic in Virginia, died July 31 at a hospital in Norfolk. He was 104.

The cause was respiratory failure, the Eastern Virginia Medical School said in a statement.

The work of Dr. Jones and his late wife, Dr. Georgeanna Jones, at EVMS led to the nation’s first child born as a result of in vitro fertilization in 1981. Since then, more than 5 million births have stemmed from in vitro fertilization around the world.

Aircraft 'bomb bag' limits on board explosion impact

Aircraft bomb bagA new system to resist terrorist bombs smuggled onto aircraft has been tested in dramatic experiments.

A device called FlyBag is designed to absorb the shockwaves and shrapnel caused by explosions.

If security fails and a bomb reaches the luggage hold, the idea is that the blast would be safely contained.  The trials - using old jets at Cotswolds Airport in Gloucestershire - showed that explosions on board caused no damage.
