Lasers, invented in the 1960s, have become a mainstay of science and technology, but surprisingly, scientists still don't entirely understand the laser pulse formation process.
New imaging technology shows laser pulses are formed from chaos
The more solar observatories, the merrier: Scientists have developed new models to see how shocks associated with coronal mass ejections, or CMEs, propagate from the Sun — an effort made possible only by combining data from three NASA satellites to produce a much more robust mapping of a CME than anyone could do alone.

An international team, including Chinese researchers, has demonstrated a large-scale integrated quantum photonic circuit, which may pave the way for manufacturing massive components for the realization of an optical quantum computer, according to a study recently released by the University of Bristol.
New chip technology can lead to better quantum computing power
Someday soon, a simple touch of a finger to a smartphone case might be enough to provide instant, accurate blood pressure readings.
App to check blood pressure could be available soon
China is getting closer to a finalized design for its next-generation X-ray observatory.

The indictment of 13 Russians in the operation of a ‘troll farm’ that spread false information related to the 2016 US presidential election has renewed the spotlight on the power of ‘fake news’ to influence public opinion.
Researchers call for large-scale scientific investigation into fake news
In the spring of 2016, after two decades at NASA — and a total of 520 days aboard the International Space Station — astronaut Scott Kelly retired, giving him a lot more free time. Free time he's now using to promote appreciation for science.
