Sunscreen ‘Snow’ Falls on Scorching-Hot Alien Planet – Space.com

The weirdness of exoplanets continues to amaze. It snows titanium dioxide, one of the active ingredients in sunscreen, on one giant, scorching-hot alien world, a new study suggests. Astronomers used NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope to study Kepler-13Ab, a planet that’s six times more massive than Jupiter and that lies 1,730 […]

The Universe Should Have Destroyed Itself at the Big Bang. Why Didn’t It? – Seeker

One measurement that had not been made was what is called the “magnetic moment” of the antiproton. The magnetic moment measures how a particle reacts to magnetic force.  Recently, an international team of researchers at CERN used the Baryon Antibaryon Symmetry Experiment (BASE) to measure the magnetic moment of an antiproton to incredibly high precision.
