Magnetic Field Detected Outside Event Horizon of Black Hole in Heart of Milky Way

Magnetic Field Detected Outside Event Horizon of Black Hole in Heart of Milky Wa

For the first time ever, astronomers were able to detect magnetic field outside the event horizon of the Milky Way’s central supermassive black hole, called as Sagittarius A*. This gigantic black hole is located at the heart of our Milky Way galaxy.

Study co-author Shep Doeleman, assistant director of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Haystack Observatory, said in a statement that there have been predictions about existence of these magnetic fields but no one ever has seen them before. Their data has put together decades of theoretical work on solid observational ground.

MIT researchers create three robots that can work in unity

MIT researchers create three robots that can work in unity

MIT researchers have unveiled a new system of three robots that can work in unity and accurately deliver various items in a disaster area, a hospital, and even in a restaurant or bar.

The team of researchers at MIT’s Computer Science & Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) used a “PR2 robot” as a bartender and a couple “Turtlebots” as waiters, and demonstrated how the three could work together in a bar situation.

Scientists chill Molecules to near Absolute Zero

Scientists chill Molecules to near Absolute Zero

An experiment conducted by a team at MIT made it possible to cool down molecules to almost absolute zero. These superchilled atoms have been claimed by the researchers to be the coldest molecules ever created.

The scientists claim that these superchilled atoms are the coldest molecules ever created. The stint has opened doors to understand physics at jaw-dropping cold temperatures.

Atoms and molecules travel at superfast speeds around us at normal everyday temperatures. They even cash into one another. However, when matter gets extremely cold, strange things begin to happen.

Cheetah Robot of MIT Can Now Sense Obstacles

Cheetah Robot of MIT Can Now Sense Obstacles

MIT researchers have pioneered the robotic cheetah which has now been trained to run and jump over obstacles autonomously, making this cheetah, the first four-legged robot to achieve this feat.

The MIT’s cheetah robot has become even smarter, as the four-legged robot has now learned the trick to judge an upcoming hurdle and jump over it while running. This feat makes the Cheetah 2 the first four-legged robot to run and jump over obstacles autonomously.

2015 Caltech Space Challenge Selects 32 International Students

2015 Caltech Space Challenge Selects 32 International Students

About 32 international students have been selected in the 2015 Caltech Space Challenge. The students are divided into two teams and have been asked to design a mission where astronauts would land on an asteroid in order to mine for resources and to show how the raw materials might be used.

Mystery behind Musky Aroma after light rain resolved

Mystery behind Musky Aroma after light rain resolved

Ever wondered why there is a musky aroma outside after a light rain? Scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have come up with the answer to the question. They have stumbled across the insight to the mechanism, which releases this smell along with that of other aerosols, into the environment.

For the research, the researchers used high-speed cameras to capture the moment when the rain hits a porous surface. They carefully analyzed the whole event frame by frame and found that the rain drop traps the tiny air bubbles at the point of contact.

MIT Researchers discover New Technique to get Ever-Higher Resolution Images

MIT Researchers discover New Technique to get Ever-Higher Resolution Images

With the advent of microscope in the late 1500s, it became so easy for researchers to look into very tiny research subjects, which was never possible before with the help of magnifying glass. With advancement in technology over the years, we have now achieved the strength to look inside cells with resolution better than 250 nanometers.
