‘Fuzzy’ dark matter might make stars form in giant ‘pancakes’

A model of exotic dark matter suggests that the first stars may have formed not as individuals, but as tiny pockets embedded in gigantic, pancake-like sheets. This would have led to the formation of truly gigantic stars that the James Webb Space Telescope may be able to detect, a research team says. Astronomers have a …

NASA finds Earth’s moon did not need hundreds of years to form. Try hours.

When the universe has seemed a vast, lonely place, people have taken comfort in Earth’s steadfast companion — the moon — ever-marching through space with this planet on an odyssey around the sun. But at one time, some 4.5 billion years ago, the moon wasn’t around. And despite its being Earth’s cosmic bestie and closest …

Ocean spray may have created conditions for life to form on Earth, new study suggests

If you were raised religious, you might have heard this biology “lesson” before: A student is handed a paper bag and a ball point pen. The teacher dismantles the pen into a pile of plastic and metal bits and an ink cartridge, then tosses it in the bag. The student is instructed to shake the …

Every Life Form on Earth Uses the Same Chemical for Energy.  This Could Explain Why.

Every Life Form on Earth Uses the Same Chemical for Energy. This Could Explain Why.

All life as we know it uses the exact same energy-carrying molecule as a kind of ‘universal cellular fuel’. Now, ancient chemistry may explain how that all-important molecule ended up being ATP (adenosine triphosphate) a new study reports. ATP is an organic molecule, charged up by photosynthesis or by cellular respiration (the way organisms break …

The simulation shows the moon forming from the shattered remains of Theia and parts of Earth

How did the moon form? A supercomputer may have just found the answer

The moon could have formed immediately after a cataclysmic impact that tore off a chunk of Earth and hurled it into space, a new study has suggested. Since the mid-1970s, astronomers have thought that the moon could have been made by a collision between Earth and an ancient Mars-size protoplanet called Theia; the colossal impact …

The simulation predicts the Pacific Ocean will disappear, resulting in the continues shifting towards each other around the North Pole

Earth’s next supercontinent Amasia will form around the North Pole in 300 million years

A new model predicts the Pacific Ocean will disappear 300 million years from now, bringing the continents together to form a new supercontinent called Amasia located around the North Pole. The simulation was conducted by a team of researchers led by Australia’s Curtin University, which highlights the fact that the Pacific Ocean is the oldest …

Fire ant rafts form because of the Cheerios effect, study concludes

Enlarge / Georgia Tech scientists found that the so-called “Cheerios effect” is the mechanism by which fire ants cluster together to form rafts. Hungtang Co Fire ants might be the scourge of southern states like Georgia and Texas, but scientifically, they are endlessly fascinating as an example of collective behavior.

Improved Stetson Bennett in championship form, shoulders heavy load in 49-3 win over Oregon

ATLANTA — Stetson Bennett served notice that pressuring Georgia to pass this season might not be such a great idea, after all. The Bulldogs quickly dismantled the common and rationale pregame storyline that former UGA defensive coordinator-turned-Oregon head coach Dan Lanning would know how to effectively attack Georgia’s offense. Bennett, instead, plucked apart Lanning’s Ducks, …
