New Computer Model for Black Holes
New Computer Model for Black Holes
The black hole of the giant galaxy M87 shoots out an enormous jet of particles. A theoretical model of this jet has now been developed that fits astronomical observations very well. The galaxy Messier 87 (M87) is located 55 million light years away from Earth in the Virgo constellation. It is a giant galaxy with 12,000 globular clusters, making the Milky Way's 200 globular clusters appear modest in comparison.

How 'thick' is a soup?
How ’thick’ is a soup?
To be able to experience a wide range of impulses, our senses use 'logarithmic perception': a large increase in the impulse only leads to a small increase in what our brain perceives. A group of researchers from the University of Amsterdam, Unilever, and Wageningen University & Research now shows that this effect does not only hold for our ears and eyes, but also for the perceived thickness of liquid foods.

AI used to reproduce ’lost’ Picasso nude
A painting of a naked woman by Pablo Picasso that has been hidden beneath one of his 'Blue Period' masterpieces for more than a century, has been recreated by UCL scientists using a combination of X-rays, AI and 3D-printing. PhD researchers Anthony Bourached (UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology) and George Cann (UCL Space and Climate Physics) have developed a five-step technology to reproduce art works, that have been painted over.
