Nearby Pulsars Shed Light on Origin of Excess Antimatter
Astrophysicists using the High-Altitude Water Cherenkov (HAWC) Gamma-Ray Observatory in Mexico have detected the extended emission of high-energy gamma rays around two nearby middle-aged pulsars, generated by high-energy electrons and their antimatter counterpart, the positrons. The properties of the detected emission cast serious doubt on one possible origin for a mysterious excess of positrons near [...]

X-Rays from Accretion Disks around Rotating Black Holes Can Act as Carriers of Quantum Information
In a paper published in the journal New Astronomy, theoretical physicist Ovidiu Racorean suggests that X-ray photons emitted by accretion disks around rapidly spinning black holes — also known as Kerr black holes — have properties that make them ideal information carriers for quantum computing. The term ‘black holes’ is widely known, but not everyone [...]

Study first to connect stress-associated brain activity with cardiovascular risk
A study led by Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISSMS) investigators has linked, for the first time in humans, activity in a stress-sensitive structure within the brain to the risk of subsequent cardiovascular disease. The team's findings, being published in the journal The Lancet, also reveals a pathway leading from activation of that structure—the amygdala—through elevated immune system activity to an increased incidence of cardiovascular events.
