The biggest cosmic explosion on record has been detected – an event so powerful that it punched a dent the size of 15 Milky Ways in the surrounding space.
Biggest cosmic explosion ever detected left huge dent in space
Researchers at Northwestern University (NU) in Illinois, US, have developed the first decentralized algorithm which may help self-driving vehicles safely navigate one another without crashing or causing unnecessary traffic jams.

How heat can be used to store renewable energy
Some species of deaf moths can absorb as much as 85 percent of the incoming sound energy from predatory bats — who use echolocation to detect them. The findings, published in the Journal of the Royal Society Interface, reveal the moths, who are unable to hear the ultrasonic calls of bats, have evolved this clever defensive strategy to help it survive.
Deaf moths evolved noise-canceling scales to evade prey
Gray whales migrate more than 10,000 miles up and down the western coast of North America, longer than almost any other mammal. In summer, they head north, often as far as Alaska’s Aleutian Islands, and in the winter, they travel south, giving birth off the coast of Mexico.
Solar storms may throw off whale navigation, cause strandings
The latest robot to land on Mars has felt the ground shake beneath its feet, whirlwinds tear across the surface and sudden blasts of air shoot past like “atmospheric tsunamis”.

Scientists have spotted in rocks from northern China what may be the oldest fossils of a green plant ever found, tiny seaweed that carpeted areas of the seafloor roughly a billion years ago and were part of a primordial revolution among life on Earth.

Astronomers have spotted a tiny, cool star putting on a stellar light show that would shame our Sun. This X-ray “superflare” was 10 times more powerful than anything the Sun can produce, and is completely unexpected for a star this small.

Danish scientists found that the precursor of the Earth formed within a time span of approximately five million years, much faster than previously thought.
