95 new exoplanets discovered during NASA's K2 mission

95 new exoplanets foundScientists have confirmed 95 additional exoplanets outside the solar system based on analysis of NASA's K2 mission data.

Since the first planet orbiting a star similar to the solar system's sun was detected in 1995, more than 3,300 exoplanets -- ranging from rocky Earth-sized planets to large gas giants like Jupiter -- have been found.

The first data from the K2 was released in 2014, with the latest findings released in a paper published in the Astronomical Journal.

Scientists find method of measuring effects of a fourth dimension

Scientists can now measure fourth dimension Two teams of scientists have measured the effects of a fourth dimension in a pair of lab experiments. Scientists didn't discover an extra dimension, but they did show how materials might behave if there was one.

"We don't have four spatial dimensions," researcher Mikael Rechtsman, a physicist at Penn State University, told UPI.

Physicists have been interested in the quantum Hall effect since it was first described in the 1980s. The effect described the fixed, quantized nature of conductivity in 2D materials.

'Oumuamua has been tumbling about the universe for a billion years

Oumuamua tumbling through the universe for 1m years The first intergalactic object observed by scientists, a massive orb named 'Oumuamua, has been tumbling about the universe for at least a billion years, new research suggests.

'Oumuamua first appeared last fall. Scientists originally thought it was a comet, but when the orb swung around the sun without melting, researchers determined it was most likely an asteroid.

One study showed, however, that the unusual object likely boasts an icy interior, further confusing the orb's identity.

Scientists discover 11th Archaeopteryx fossil, the oldest yet

Scientists discover 11th Archaeopteryx fossilPaleontologists have discovered an 11th Archaeopteryx fossil. The 150-million-year-old dinosaur bones are the oldest yet to be attributed to the transitionary genus.

The discovery -- detailed this week in the journal PeerJ -- could help scientists more easily differentiate between the group of bird-like dinosaurs and their closest relatives.

Move over, Dolly: Monkeys cloned; a step closer to people?

Moneys cloned; are humans next?For the first time, researchers have used the cloning method that produced Dolly the sheep to create two healthy monkeys, bringing science an important step closer to being able to do the same with humans.

Since Dolly's birth in 1996, scientists have cloned nearly two dozen kinds of mammals, including dogs, cats, pigs, cows and polo ponies, and have also created human embryos with this method. But until now, they have been unable to make babies this way in primates, the category that includes monkeys, apes and people.

Amazon's first checkout-free grocery store opens on Monday

Amazon's first checkout free grocery in Seattle

Amazon will open its first checkout-free grocery store to the public on Monday, moving forward with an experiment that could dramatically alter bricks-and-mortar retail.

The Seattle shop, known as Amazon Go, relies on cameras and sensors to track what shoppers remove from the shelves, and what they put back. Cash registers and checkout lines become superfluous: customers are billed after leaving using a credit card on file.

To start shopping, customers must scan an Amazon Go smartphone app and pass through a gated turnstile.
