Scientists slash the upper limit for the neutrinos mysterious mass in half

Scientists slash the upper limit for the neutrinos mysterious mass in halfScientists from the University of Washington and other institutions around the world say they've reduced the upper limit for the mass of the neutrino by half. Thanks to findings from the Karlsruhe Tritium Neutrino Experiment, or KATRIN, physicists now know to a 90% confidence level that the neutrino has a rest mass no greater than 1.1 electron volts, or 1.1 eV. The previous upper limit was 2 eV. Nailing down the neutrino's mass could solidify scientists' grasp on the Standard Model, which describes the subatomic world in fine detail. It could also open a path to the mysterious realm beyond Read More

SpaceX wants to rearrange its Starlink satellites for faster broadband ramp-up

SpaceX wants to rearrange its Starlink satellites for faster broadband ramp-upSpaceX is seeking approval from the Federal Communications Commission for changes in the spacing of its Starlink broadband satellites, in order to extend internet services to a wider swath of the United States on a faster timetable. "This adjustment will accelerate coverage to southern states and U.S. territories, potentially expediting coverage to the southern continental United States by the end of the next hurricane season and reaching other U.S. territories by the following hurricane season," SpaceX said in an application filed on Aug. 30 and accepted last week. If SpaceX follows that schedule, Starlink coverage could be available throughout the Read More

Brad Pitt coaxes a thumbs-up for his Ad Astra movie in hookup with space station

Brad Pitt coaxes a thumbs-up for his Ad Astra movie in hookup with space stationImagine the taglines in the movie ads: "Really good" portrayal of zero-gravity! "Absolutely" better than George Clooney! There'd be some justification for Brad Pitt's space movie, "Ad Astra," to use those lines after today's Earth-to-space video call between the A-list Hollywood star and NASA astronaut Nick Hague, who's finishing up a six-month tour of duty on the International Space Station. Pitt said the linkup, arranged through NASA, was a "real treat." And he didn't waste any time getting a film review from Hague, who watched an advance screening of "Ad Astra" with his crewmates on the station. "Now that I Read More

SESAME synchrotron sheds new light on Middle Eastern science, history and politics

SESAME synchrotron sheds new light on Middle Eastern science, history and politicsGeekWire's Alan Boyle reports on a $90 million science project with a diplomatic twist in Jordan, one of the stops on this summer's Middle East science tour. ALLAN, Jordan For Israeli researchers, SESAME could open up a path for finding out exactly what the frankincense mentioned in the Bible was made of. For Arab researchers, SESAME could reveal how the awe-inspiring structures built thousands of years ago at Jordan's Petra archaeological site were decorated. And what's nearly as awesome as the potential discoveries is the fact that Israelis and Arabs are working together at SESAME to make them. So Read More
