Massive Hunga Volcano Eruption Created an Atmospheric Pulse That Caused an Unusual Tsunami-Like Disturbance

This looping video shows a series of GOES-17 satellite images that caught an umbrella cloud generated by the underwater eruption of the Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai volcano on January 15, 2022. Crescent-shaped bow shock waves and numerous lighting strikes are also visible. Credit: NASA Earth Observatory image by Joshua Stevens using GOES imagery courtesy of NOAA … Read more

Men and Women Are Not Created Equal When It Comes to Preventing Alzheimer’s Disease

Even when accounting for gender-dependent mortality rates, age at death, and differences in lifespan, women still have twice the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. New research studied whether sex significantly affects cognitive outcomes in people who follow individually-tailored, multi-domain clinical interventions. Richard Isaacson, MD, leads first study to define sex differences in outcomes of tailored[{” attribute=””>Alzheimer’s … Read more

When it comes to preventing Alzheimer’s, women and men are not created equal – BIOENGINEER.ORG

After increasing age, the most significant risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is sex – two-thirds of patients with AD are females. In fact, even when accounting for gender-dependent mortality rates, age at death, and differences in lifespan, women still have twice the risk of incidence. After increasing age, the most significant risk factor for … Read more

The US just created a big new biomedical research agency. But questions remain | Science

President Joe Biden last week got his wish for a new agency to fund high-risk, cutting-edge biomedical research when Congress created the Advanced Research Projects Agency for Health (ARPA-H) and gave it a $ 1 billion startup investment. That’s a fraction of the $ 6.5 billion Biden had proposed, but advocates say it’s plenty to … Read more

Giant radiation bubbles created by monster black hole feeding frenzy, new study suggests

Two giant bubbles of gamma rays and X-rays that erupted from the center of the Milky Way may stem from a supermassive black hole’s feeding frenzy at the heart of the galaxy, a new study finds. Recently, the X-ray telescope eROSITA onboard the Spektr-RG space observatory discovered a pair of gigantic X-ray-emitting bubbles, each about … Read more

Incredibly Detailed Map of the Universe Created With New Algorithms and Supercomputers

With new algorithms and supercomputers, an incredibly detailed radio map of the universe was created. Now astronomers can look at radio data of galaxies with much more precision. This was published in Nature Astronomy by Leiden PhD student Frits Sweijen and colleagues. “This single map has almost as many pixels as previous maps of the … Read more

Strange Quantum Object Successfully Created in The Lab For The First Time

Quantum mechanics – the behavior of the Universe at the smallest of scales – continues to surprise us, with scientists now having been able to successfully create a quantum object called a domain wall in laboratory settings. For the first time, these walls can now be generated in the lab on demand, occurring when atoms … Read more
