Artificial Intelligence Google has learned how to successfully overcome obstacle course

So-called reinforcement learning is a technique of training artificial intelligence, where the algorithm is rewarded for making correct decisions and being punished for making wrong decisions based on the results obtained earlier. According to this idea, with the right amount of time and effort, the system finally sets itself the best course of action for […]

The Uranus planet is even more weird than was thought

It is impossible to hide that Uranus is a planet enough strange. The axis of rotation of this planet is strongly inclined – up to 98 degrees, and is located almost in the plane of its orbit.  A new study by Atlanta-based Georgia Institute of Technology suggests that Uranus’s peculiar axis of rotation may be […]

NASA has discovered 10 new candidates for earth-like planets

Kepler Space Telescope again does not disappoint. On Monday, during a press conference at the Joseph Ames Research Center, NASA announced the discovery of 219 new candidates for the planet. Even more exciting is the fact that 10 of them seem to resemble Earth in size and be in the ecosphere of their stars. This […]

Mutations in space

During experiments conducted with the use of flatworms at the International Space Station, the researchers observed an unexpected regenerative effect. One of the 15 fragments of the creature sent back into space has returned with two heads. The purpose of the experiment was to test how life in space can affect cell activity. Researchers have […]

NASA Can’t Explain What Made This Strange, Deep Hole on Mars

You’d think NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) has seen everything there is to see on the Martian surface in the 11 years it’s orbited our nearest neighbour, but a snapshot taken over the planet’s South Pole has revealed something we can’t explain. While the planet’s entire surface is pocked with various depressions and craters, a […]

Scientists have created the illusion of touch in VR

Today, the equipment that allows us to enter the world of VR, affects only two of our senses – sight and hearing. Perhaps, using such devices someday we will be able to feel the flavors and smells, but rather will not happen until the virtual reality does not begin to simulate touch. Finally, the simulation […]

LHC and new Five Particles

Five new particles in one go! @LHCbExperiment observed an exceptionally large group of particles in a single analysis: http://cern.ch/go/d6JQ   Over the coming months and years, the LHC will use its amazing amount of energy to open up the “dark sector of physics,” revealing currently unknown particles and helping solve some of our greatest cosmic mysteries […]

Fast Radio Burst

First discovered them in the form of one-off flares, suggesting that their source may be destroyed as a result of the events which gave rise to this strong emissions. An example is the star explosion known as a supernova – are extremely powerful cosmic explosions, which can be several times brighter than the light emitted […]

Abandoned Engineering

Over the years, emerged interesting ideas, you might want to check out this series. “These are some of the most spectacular examples of abandoned engineering the world has ever known. The series explores how and why they were built, consider the financial and social costs of their failure and examine the environmental and ecological impacts. […]
