ALMA spies a distant Milky Way doppelgänger

ALMA spies a distant Milky Way doppelgänger

Astronomers have used the ALMA, Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array to observe an extremely distant galaxy that looks surprisingly like our Milky Way. The researchers say that the galaxy is very young, and the light from the galaxy has taken over 12 billion years to reach us. Scientists view the galaxy as it was when the universe was only 1.4 billion years old.

Scientists successfully reflect a laser beam between the Earth and LRO orbiting the Moon

Scientists successfully reflect a laser beam between the Earth and LRO orbiting the Moon

Over the last decade, NASA scientists have been shooting laser beams at a reflector on the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter circling the Moon that's about the size of a paperback novel. That small target is very difficult to hit at a distance of 240,000 miles from Earth. Scientists have now announced that they have been able to receive a signal back for the first time.

Bright spots on dwarf planet Ceres came from salty water deep inside

The NASA Dawn spacecraft orbited very close to the dwarf planet Ceres located in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. Dawn's mission ended in October 2018, and near mission completion, the orbiter was circling Ceres at an altitude of less than 22 miles above the surface. The close orbits gave scientists extremely clear images.

Study finds N95 respirator masks can be decontaminated using a rice cooker or Instant Pot

Study finds N95 respirator masks can be decontaminated using a rice cooker or Instant Pot

A new study from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, has looked at a new method of sanitizing N95 respirator masks using common home appliances. The study found that placing an N95 respirator into a cooker, such as a rice cooker or Instant Pot, that produces dry heat for 50 minutes, will decontaminate the masks inside and out. At the same time, the sanitation method also preserves the filtration and fit of the masks.
