Artificial Intelligence system learns to run complex physics experiment

AI system learns to run physics experimentA pair of physicists in Australia have trained an artificial intelligence system to replicate the experiment that won the 2001 Nobel Prize.

The experiment involves what is known as a Bose-Einstein condensate, the trapping of an ultra-cool gas in a series of lasers.

At just a billionth of a degree above absolute zero, Bose-Einstein condensates constitute some of the coldest temperatures in the universe -- colder than interstellar space.

Deadly ISIL suicide attack hits Iraqi gas plant

ISIS hits gas plant in IraqAn ISIL (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) attack on a state-run gas plant in Baghdad's northern outskirts on Sunday killed at least 11 people, including policemen, and forced two power stations to suspend electricity production.

A suicide car bomb went off at the entrance of the facility in Taji at around 0600 local time (0300 GMT), allowing another vehicle carrying at least six attackers with explosive vests to enter and clash with security forces, police sources said. Twenty-one people were also wounded.

Sinkhole discovery suggests ancient humans in Florida 14,500 years ago

Humans in Florida @ 15000 years agoA stone knife, mastodon bones and fossilized dung found in an underwater sinkhole show that humans lived in north Florida about 14,500 years ago, according to new research that suggests the colonization of the Americas was far more complex than originally believed.

Archaeologists have known of the sinkhole in the Aucilla river, south of Tallahassee, for years. But they recently dived back into the hole to excavate what they call clear evidence that ancient mankind spread throughout the Americas about 1,500 years earlier than previously thought.

Kepler space telescope finds 1,284 other planets to consider

Kepler telescope finds new planetsNASA's Kepler mission has verified 1,284 new planets – the single largest finding of planets to date. The announcement Tuesday by NASA scientists doubles the number of planets confirmed by Kepler

“This gives us hope that somewhere out there, around a star much like ours, we can eventually discover another Earth," said Ellen Stofan, chief scientist at NASA Headquarters in Washington.

Mercury makes rare transit between Earth and the Sun

Mercury transition across sunThe planet Mercury is passing directly across the face of the Sun for the first time in 10 years, as it casts a shadow across South America, Africa, Western Europe and the east of North America.

Mercury, which is slightly larger than the Earth’s moon, is too small to see without binoculars or a telescope, and experts warn that looking directly at the Sun during Monday's event could damage eyes.

Scientists: Earthquake swarms detected beneath Mount St. Helens

Mt St. HelensScientist said a number of low-magnitude earthquakes taking place beneath Mount St. Helens could be the result of the volcano slowly recharging.

More than 130 earthquakes have been detected in the area around the volcano since March 14, the U.S. Geological Survey said. The largest quake measured a magnitude of 1.3 with most having magnitudes of 0.5 or less.

Big discovery about Vikings just came from space

Vikings in North AmericaA "high-tech Indiana Jones" may have just done what no one else has been able to for 55 years: find a second Viking settlement in North America, the Washington Post reports. "Typically in archaeology, you only ever get to write a footnote in the history books, but what we seem to have at Point Rosee may be the beginning of an entirely new chapter," archaeologist Sara Parcak tells the BBC.

Parcak used images taken by satellites 400 miles above the Earth to find what appeared to be evidence that Vikings made it hundreds of miles further into North America than previously known. Parcak has used the same technique to find 17 pyramids, 1,000 tombs, and 3,000 forgotten settlements. But this newest discovery could change everything we know about Vikings in North America.
