An artist's impression of J1407b viewed from a moon. 1SWASP J140747.93-394542.6 (often abbreviated 1SWASP J140747 or J1407) is a star similar to the Sun located in the constellation of Centaurus at a distance of about 420 light years from Earth.

1SWASP J140747.93-394542.6

A relatively young star, its age is estimated to be 16 million years, and its mass is about 90% that of the Sun's.[1][4] The star has an apparent magnitude of 12.3 and requires a telescope to be seen.[2] The star's name comes from the SuperWASP (Wide Angle Search for Planets) program and the stars RA/Dec. J1407 is probably orbited by at least one known body, 1SWASP J1407b[5] (J1407b), thought to be either a large gas giant planet or a brown dwarf with an immense ring system.[1][3][6] 1SWASP J140747.93-394542.6 b[edit] J1407b is the first exoplanet or brown dwarf discovered with a ring system by the transit method.

From Earth's point of view, the ring system appears about 3.7 milliarcseconds across. Notes[edit] References[edit] External links[edit] j1407_exorings [Matthew Kenworthy] The Star J1407 is a 0.9 Solar mass, 16 million year old star that is part of the Sco-Cen OB Association.

Due to its youth, it is slightly hotter and brighter than you would expect for a nearly Solar mass star - it will eventually settle down onto the Main Sequence near the Sun's present position. The star is about 133 parsecs away in the Southern hemisphere, and is a 12th magnitude star. Most of the time, it has an almost constant brightness. There is a small (4%) variation in its brightness every 3.2 days, almost certainly due to star spots on its surface rotating in and out of our view. Other than its young age, there's nothing particularly distinctive about it - which was all the more surprising when in 2007 there was… The Eclipse In April and May 2007, this star started dimming irregularly over a two month period, with sudden and dramatic changes in its brightness occasionally happening over a few hours.

STARFIGHTER INC. by Impeller Studios

We all played the hell out of X-Wing, Wing Commander, and that entire generation of amazing space combat games. That’s why we’re so excited to be creating the next game in that rich lineage: STARFIGHTER INC., a hardcore team-based PvP multiplayer space shooter in the vein of X-Wing vs. Tie-Fighter. We want to recapture the intensity and excitement of those games and provide a fresh experience via modern graphics, new gameplay, and awesome gear derived from the science of today and tomorrow. Thank you so much for joining us on this adventure. In short, Starfighter Inc. is: All About Combat. Realism Done Right. Unparalleled Customization. We want to give our community unprecedented access into the creation of this game, so we'll be adding loads more information to this page as our Kickstarter campaign goes on.

Time Control Technologies and Methods

David Lewis Anderson from AndersonInstitute Website The ability to control time in both a forward and backwards direction is possible within the laws of our mathematics and physics. The chart below (click for larger view) compares ten different technologies an methods. Key characteristics are identified for each and described below. Under each key characteristic is a column with either a solid or empty circle. A solid circle indicates a key characteristic is supported by the indicated technology or method, an empty circle indicates it is not.

"Time Control" indicates whether travel to future, past, or both are possible. The time control technologies and methods above include the following: Contents Quantum Tunneling Quantum Tunneling is an evanescent wave coupling effect that occurs in quantum mechanics. The correct wavelength combined with the proper tunneling barrier makes it possible to pass signals faster than light, backwards in time. Paul pepera : game art portfolio.

Siddhartha Barnhoorn

My aim with this album was to create a collection of evolving, spacial ambient pieces and to structure those into a coherent, organic musical experience. The album touches upon themes like space and time, dynamics and silence, darkness and light with hints of mysticism. Aiming to express a sense of timelessness in the music. The atmospheric musical experience was created from a surreal blending of acoustic and electronic instruments. 25 Strangest Things Found In Outer Space. Neutron star. A neutron star is a type of compact star.

Neutron star

Neutron stars are the smallest and densest stars known to exist in the Universe.[1] With a radius of only about 11–11.5 km (7 miles), they can have a mass of about twice that of the Sun. They can result from the gravitational collapse of a massive star after a supernova. Neutron stars are composed almost entirely of neutrons, which are subatomic particles with no net electrical charge and with slightly larger mass than protons. They are supported against further collapse by quantum degeneracy pressure due to the phenomenon described by the Pauli exclusion principle, which states that no two neutrons (or any other fermionic particles) can occupy the same place and quantum state simultaneously. Neutron stars rotate, and can emit beams of electromagnetic radiation that are detected as pulsars. Magnetar. Artist's conception of a magnetar, with magnetic field lines.

The Semiconductor Industry Association has estimated that at current rates of increase, computers' energy requirements will exceed the world's total power output by 2040.

Researchers show that silicon can reproduce physical phenomena exploited by high-end telecommunications devices

Using light rather than electricity to move data would dramatically reduce computer chips' energy consumption, and the past 20 years have seen remarkable progress in the development of silicon photonics, or optical devices that are made from silicon so they can easily be integrated with electronics on silicon chips. But existing silicon-photonic devices rely on different physical mechanisms than the high-end optoelectronic components in telecommunications networks do. The telecom devices exploit so-called second-order nonlinearities, which make optical signal processing more efficient and reliable. Alien particles from outer space are wreaking low-grade havoc on personal electronic devices.

Bharat Bhuva (Vanderbilt University) Physicists have detected a friction-like force in a perfect vacuum. One of the most fundamental tenets of modern physics is that in a perfect vacuum - a place entirely devoid of matter - no friction can possibly exist, because empty space cannot exert a force on objects travelling through it. But despite the conventional wisdom, physicists in the UK discovered that a decaying atom travelling through a complete vacuum would experience a friction-like force, and now they've figured out how this reinforces - rather than breaks - Einstein's theory of general relativity.

"We spent ages searching for the mistake in the calculation and spent even more time exploring other strange effects until we found this (rather simple) solution," one of the team, Matthias Sonnleitner from the University of Glasgow told Lisa Zyga at
