Crew Dragon with a fully private crew launched to the ISS as part of the Axiom-1 mission

The Falcon 9 launch vehicle launched from the Cape Canaveral cosmodrome. SpaceX launched a launch vehicle with the Crew Dragon spacecraft on Friday, which will deliver a crew consisting entirely of private individuals to the International Space Station (ISS). The launch was broadcast on the website of SpaceX and the aerospace company Axiom Space, which...

Researchers believe that Homo sapiens colonized Europe on the third attempt

Based on the analysis of genetic and archaeological findings, Italian molecular anthropologists have developed a new theory of the colonization of Eurasia by Homo Sapiens. The proposed model describes three waves of settlement across the mainland, which emanate from a single historical center. A study of the ancient remains of Homo Sapiens found in Bacho...

Look at the dinosaur footprint it left at the bottom of the pond

Carlos Herrera-Castillo of the Autonomous University of Madrid and his colleagues studied the footprints of a predatory dinosaur: they were found in the Spanish Cretaceous deposits about 129 million years old. The authors of the new work explored a path of six fossil tracks. They said that previously there was a muddy bank of the...

After ten years of work, scientists questioned the standard model of physics

The new data allowed physicists to make the most accurate measurement of the mass of the W-boson. After a decade of analysis, physicists have been able to measure the mass of the W boson most accurately, which could change physics as we know it. According to the authors, their measurement is very different from predictions...

There is a way to track mergers of supermassive black holes and galaxies

Gamma rays from pulsars could help detect merging supermassive black holes. Researchers have found a new way to look for gravitational waves and ripples in space-time, which are due to explosions, rotations or mergers of massive celestial objects. Physicists first detected gravitational waves in 2015 using laser detectors, and they were also recorded by ground-based...

Found a cluster of fossils of pterosaurs: they were flying lizards with teeth

Researchers led by Jonathan Alarcón-Muñoz of the University of Chile found bones of pterosaurs in the desert that are more than 100 million years old. The authors of the work explored the Atacama Desert. The place where most of the remains of flying reptiles were found is in the mountains of Cerros Bravos in the...
