New ultrahard diamond glass synthesized

New ultrahard diamond glass synthesizedCarnegie's Yingwei Fei and Lin Wang were part of an international research team that synthesized a new ultrahard form of carbon glass with a wealth of potential practical applications for devices and electronics. It is the hardest known glass with the highest thermal conductivity among all glass materials. Their findings are published in Nature. Function follows form when it comes to understanding the properties of a material. How its atoms are chemically bonded to each other, and their resulting structural arrangement, determines a material's physical qualities -- both those that are observable by the naked eye and those that are only revealed by scientific probing. Carbon is unrivaled in its ability to form stable structures -- alone and in combinat...

Friday 19 November 2021: Catch a lunar eclipse on your way to work

Friday 19 November 2021: Catch a lunar eclipse on your way to work Armagh Observatory and Planetarium reports that, if skies are clear on the morning of 19th November 2021, sky-watchers will witness a partial eclipse of the Moon. The eclipse begins at 0720 am Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) when the Moon is only 5 deg above the NW horizon. At that time the Pleiades star cluster, otherwise known as the Seven Sisters, will be visible right above the Moon with the bright star Aldebaran off to the left. The eclipse will continue to progress until moonset at 0802am, when more than half of the lunar disk would be in Earth’s shadow. Viewing of this eclipse presents a challenge because of the Moon’s extremely low altitude as well as the approaching sunrise, yet offers the prospect of impressive vistas o...

Watch NASA’s DART Mission Launch (Double Asteroid Redirection Test) Official Broadcast/Stream

Watch NASA’s DART Mission Launch (Double Asteroid Redirection Test) Official Broadcast/Stream Can we change the motion of an asteroid? Our #DARTMission is set to be the first to try and you’re invited to get a behind-the-scenes look! The Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) mission is a spacecraft designed to impact an asteroid as a test of technology to see if it can change the motion of an asteroid in space. The goal of the mission is to see if intentionally crashing a spacecraft into an asteroid is an effective way to change its course, should an Earth-threatening asteroid be discovered in the future. DART’s target is the binary near-Earth asteroid Didymos and its moonlet, which pose no threat to Earth. This mission is targeted to launch at 1:20 a.m. EST, No...

NIGHT VISION ASTRONOMY – Afocal Method

NIGHT VISION ASTRONOMY - Afocal Method I've been getting a lot of questions on how we do the night vision astronomy stuff we're doing at star parties. I figured I'd let Ed show us how we've been at it recently!
