A video of the Earth-moon system has been recorded by NASA's Jupiter-bound Juno spacecraft at the time of high-speed flyby in October. The video reveals about an extraordinary view of the two worlds that are bounded in a cosmic dance against the dark chasm of space.
These images were taken by a low-resolution camera that is mounted at the end of one of three solar array wings of the Juno spacecraft.

A group of neutrinos from space has been found by scientists at the South Pole. These neutrinos would assist in clarifying the origins of the universe. The findings will be revealed by a group from the IceCube telescope laboratory in Antarctica in tomorrow's Science journal.
The experts think that their 28 intergalactic subatomic particles has came from exterior of the Solar System as well as from outside our galaxy, the Milky Way. These particles are implanted in one cubic kilometer of polar ice.

In order to form a new world record, researchers held an unstable quantum memory state to be stable for about 39 minutes under room temperature. The researchers have done to make it possible to store long term quantum information at room temperature.
Researchers have encoded `Qubits' of information in a silicon system for almost 100 times more than ever done before. The nature of quantum system is that they are changeable and cannot be measured and manipulated easily. But, if they are compressed and bind together they could be transformed into computing.

According to a latest report, the Chinese and American researchers have come up with a new way to sustain high fusion performance under balanced conditions. According to the experts this can be done by the utilization of the self generating characteristic of the plasma.
According to the scientists, much of the electrical current required for plasma regulation in a tokamak fusion reactor is generated by the plasma itself. Also for the cost effectiveness of the fusion power this self-generated current has very important implications.

Boffins at Australia's Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization have revealed that they have endeavored to examine black holes by using information about Einsteinian prediction.
Post-doctoral CSIRO fellow Dr. Ryan Shannon and PhD student Vikram Ravi have figured out the likely rate of background gravitational waves in the universe. They have made it possible through analyzing data from the Parkes radio-telescope's PPTA project and a previous CSIRO-Swinburne University collaboration.

As per a new report, a highest flight has been completed by the Grasshooper rocket of Elon Musk. The previous week, this rocket completed its flight in order to become a viable (vertical takeoff, vertical landing) rocket.
The SpaceX had published a video on the social site displaying the 744 meter tall jump in upward direction. A test routine was called about two months back in which Grasshopper executed a creative plan. According to the plan, the rocket rose at a height of about 100 meters from its launch pad and returned back.

The most important discovery in particle physics has been made by the Geneva research center in half a century. It explains how the visible universe holds together and is tapping rising nations to help fund its follow-up act.
They called the particle as "God particle" because it holds the key to the presence of humanity on Earth.

Physicists at the NIST have entangled a microscopic mechanical drum with electrical signals, said a news release from the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
It has been proved by the findings that NIST's micro-drum could be used as a quantum memory in future quantum computers. It would implement the rules of quantum physics to resolve issues that are difficult today.

According to a recent research published in the Journal of Nature Chemistry, molecules in the shape of wagon wheels were used in order to make organic LEDs by a team of researchers.
The scientists from the University of Utah and University of Bonn collectively carried out this experiment in order to solve the problem of poor LED displays. The wheel shaped molecules emit lights in a way that it is not polarized.
