Our ideas about the formation of Mars turned upside down so that the multiverse can break the scientific method? (The Galaxy Report)

Today’s stories range from China rejects NASA’s accusation that it will take control of the moon. The Large Hadron Collider will embark on a third race to uncover more cosmic secrets Scientists find new ‘exotic’ configurations of quarks that could explain the formation of our universe, and much more.

China rejects NASA accusation that it seized the Moon– The head of the US space agency says China’s space program is military and China stole ideas and technology from others, NBC News reports. “We must be very concerned that China lands on the moon and says, ‘It’s ours now and you stay out,'” NASA administrator Bill Nelson told German newspaper Bild in an interview published on Saturday. China replied that it had always called for building a community of nations in space.

How the Multiverse Could Break the Scientific Method– There is nothing more important to science than its ability to prove ideas wrong. “The Multiverse is the fascinating hypothesis that ours is not the only Universe. We can never be certain that the Multiverse exists. Yet we must venture into the unknown if we are to make progress. At the heart of the debate lies in the authority of the scientific method itself,” reports Big Think.

An unusual fossil galaxy discovered on the outskirts of Andromeda could reveal the history of the universe, reports SciTechDaily. “A unique ultra-faint dwarf galaxy has been discovered on the outer fringes of the Andromeda Galaxy thanks to the discerning eyes of an amateur astronomer examining archival data processed by NSF’s NOIRLab Community Science and Data Center. The dwarf galaxy – Pegasus V – was found to contain very few heavier elements and is probably a fossil of the earliest galaxies.

The Large Hadron Collider will embark on a third race to uncover more cosmic secrets,reports NPR. “Ten years ago, scientists were able to discover the Higgs boson particle and help make sense of our universe using the Large Hadron Collider. They did it again in 2018, opening new perspectives on protons. Now, with a new host of questions, they plan to restart the particle accelerator this month to possibly better understand cosmic unknowns like dark matter.

Ice-water worlds are exoplanets with enough water to form a hydrosphere. “THE OCEANS OF THE EARTH ARE a huge uniform electrolyte solution. They contain salt (sodium chloride) and other nutrients like magnesium, sulfate and calcium. We cannot survive without electrolytes, and life on Earth could be very different without the electrolyte content of the oceans. It might even be non-existent.

Pentaquarks: scientists discover new “exotic” configurations of quarks that could explain the formation of our Universe, reports the BBC. “Scientists have found new ways to group quarks, the tiniest particles known to mankind. The new structures only exist for a hundred thousandth of a billionth of a billionth of a second, but may explain how our Universe was formed.

10 Surprising Facts About The Big Bang Theory–It’s the origin of our entire observable universe, but it’s not the very beginning of it all yet, reports Big Think. “The Big Bang was a simple idea dating back to the 1920s: that the Universe is expanding and cooling now, and therefore was hotter and denser in the past. After making a series of successful predictions that no other theory can match it, it is widely accepted as the origin story of our Universe. But the Big Bang is so much more than that.

Search for habitable exoplanets included in upcoming Chinese space missionsreports Brett Tingley for Space.com. The Chinese Academy of Sciences has selected candidates for its next series of space missions, which are scheduled to launch between 2026 and 2030.

The rotation of the ancient galaxy suggests that the universe’s first stars quickly coalesced into disks, reports Science.com. The result suggests that NASA’s Webb Telescope will have many galactic targets from the baby universe.

Carbon may not be the only basis of life. We have to look harder. On Earth, carbon can form millions of compounds, while silicon is largely stuck inside rocks. But elsewhere, silicon could form the basis of life, reports Big Think. Science fiction stories often postulate the existence of silicon-based life forms elsewhere in the Universe. We need to be more open-minded and less Earth-centered in our hunt for life in the Cosmos.

Stunning images from Astronomy Photographer of the Yeart revealed, reports Metro.com– “Awesome scenes of the rising Milky Way, colliding galaxies, stellar nurseries, bright aurora borealis dancing in the night sky, and Saturn balanced by its moons all make the list. restricted to this year’s astronomy. Photographer of the Year,” a spokesperson for the award said.

The futuristic South Pole telescope goes way back in time reports the Argonne National Laboratory. “Watching the cosmos from its isolated position in Antarctica, a collaborative project aims to reveal information about the early universe.”

An ancient meteorite upends our ideas about the formation of Mars – Meteor analysis suggests early Mars obtained important volatile elements like hydrogen and oxygen from meteor collisions rather than a cloud of gas, New Scientist reports.

The largest alcohol molecule in space near the center of the Milky Way has been identified, could lead to new star formation. “Researchers may have discovered the biggest alcohol in space in the form of propanol. For the first time, normal propanol has been detected in a star-forming region, along with isopropanol that had never been seen in interstellar form before, according to Science Alert.

What if the Large Hadron Collider found nothing else?Nature.com asks. “On the tenth anniversary of the discovery of the Higgs boson, it is worth emphasizing that particle physics is not just about particle hunting.” this could represent a step towards a more complete theory.

Who owns Einstein? The battle for the world’s most famous face–Thanks to a shrewd California lawyer, Albert Einstein earned far more posthumously than he ever earned in his lifetime. But is this what the great scientist would have wanted, wonders Simon Parkin for The Guardian.

Powerful radio pulses from deep in the cosmos can be used to study hidden pools of gas surrounding nearby galaxiesaccording to a new study published in the journal Nature Astronomy.

10 surprising facts about the Big Bang Theory –-It is the origin of all our observable Universe, but it is not yet the very beginning of everything, reports Ethan Siegel for Big Think. “The Big Bang was a simple idea dating back to the 1920s: that the Universe is expanding and cooling now, and therefore was hotter and denser in the past. After making a series of successful predictions that no other theory can match, it is widely accepted as the origin story of our universe.
