"ASTRONOMERS DETECT THE FAINTEST EARLY GALAXY EVER DETECTED" An international team of scientists has discovered the faintest early-universe galaxy ever using the W. M. Keck Observatory at Mauna Kea Hawaii. The galaxy was detected as how it would have looked like 13 billion years ago a time when the universe was only beginning to ionize (when stars began to form though ionized hydrogen). This discovery was made possible to the DEIMOS instrument on the Keck II telescope and a natural…
Stanford engineers take big step toward using light instead of wires inside computers Using a new algorithm, Stanford engineers can design and build a prism-like silicon structure that can bend light at right angles. The goal is to transmit data faster and more efficiently via optical rather than electrical signals.
