Water Found for First Time on 'Potentially Habitable' Planet

Water Found for First Time on 'Potentially Habitable' Planet

Astronomers have for the first time discovered water in the atmosphere of a planet orbiting within the habitable zone of a distant star. The finding makes the world - which is called K2-18b - a plausible candidate in the search for alien life. Within 10 years, new space telescopes might be able to determine whether K2-18b's atmosphere contains gases that could be produced by living organisms. Details were published in the scientific journal Nature Astronomy. The lead scientist, Prof Giovanna Tinetti of University College London (UCL), described the discovery as "mind blowing". "This is...

Muons: 'Strong' evidence found for a new force of nature

Muons: 'Strong' evidence found for a new force of nature

From sticking a magnet on a fridge door to throwing a ball into a basketball hoop, the forces of physics are at play in every moment of our lives.All of the forces we experience every day can be reduced to just four categories: gravity, electromagnetism, the strong force and the weak force.Now, physicists say they have found possible signs of a fifth fundamental force of nature.The findings come from research carried out at a laboratory near Chicago.The four fundamental forces govern how all the objects and particles in the Universe interact with each other.For example, gravity makes...

Covid-19: Lung damage 'identified' in study

Covid-19: Lung damage 'identified' in study

Covid-19 could be causing lung abnormalities still detectable more than three months after patients are infected, researchers suggest.A study of 10 patients at Oxford University used a novel scanning technique to identify damage not picked up by conventional scans.It uses a gas called xenon during MRI scans to create images of lung damage.Lung experts said a test that could spot long-term damage would make a huge difference to Covid patients.The xenon technique sees patients inhale the gas during a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan.Prof Fergus Gleeson, who is leading the work, tried out...

UK to ramp up coronavirus monitoring programme

UK to ramp up coronavirus monitoring programme

Coronavirus tests are to be carried out on more people in the government's monitoring programme to get a better idea of the spread of the virus.The Office for National Statistics' will test 150,000 people a fortnight in England by October, up from 28,000 now.The survey is separate from the to diagnose cases.For the survey, a representative sample of the general population is tested.That means it can provide estimates for the true spread of the virus.The diagnostic testing programme, which provides daily totals, largely relies on people with symptoms coming forward.Some people do not display...
