Using data from the James Webb Space Telescope’s first year of interstellar observation, an international team of researchers viewed an exploding supernova in a faraway spiral galaxy. The study provides new infrared measurements of NGC 1566, one of the brightest galaxies in our cosmic neighbourhood. Scientists were able to survey a Type 1a supernova by mere chance while studying NGC 1566. By analyzing images taken of the supernova’s core, researchers investigated how certain chemical elements are emitted into the surrounding cosmos after an explosion. This could give researchers deeper insight into the chemical formation of the universe.
Saccharomyces boulardii is a yeast that scientists discovered in the peels of certain tropical fruit Trusted Source. Its probiotic strain, S. boulardii CNCM I-745, was the first yeast that scientists studied as a probiotic for human medicine. Probiotics are supplements that contain live microbes that may have health benefits. S. boulardii CNCM I-745 has some properties that make it potentially […]
The conflict between Elsevier, the world’s biggest publisher of scientific journals, and Germany’s entire university system has dragged on since 2015. However, recently Elsevier has approved continuous access to its paywalled journals for researchers at around 200 German universities and other research institutes that had refused earlier to renew their individual subscriptions. The nationwide deal […]
Emilio Bruna a biologist from the University of Florida, and his team found in a study that “Academic journals lack international editorial board individuals, as most editors are based either in the US or UK.” Bruna’s team analyzed 24 environmental biology journals’ editorial boards in the vicinity of 1985 and 2014. Out of the 3827 […]
