    Why We Still Don't Know How Fast the Universe is Expanding

    Back in the 1980s, astronomers were caught up in a debate so huge, you could drive a universe through it. The point of contention was a number called the Hubble constant, which describes the rate at which the cosmos is expanding and, by extension, how much time has passed since the Big Bang: the slower the expansion rate, the older the universe.

    With First-Ever Landing on Moon's Farside, China Enters "Luna Incognita"

    China is once again on the threshold of a historic first in its fast-paced exploration of Earth’s moon.

    Why the 2018 bitcoin price crash is just a 'blip not a bubble bursting'

    The price of bitcoin has often been compared to history's biggest bubbles – Dutch Tulip mania in the 17th century, the Mississippi Bubble in the 18th century and the UK Canal and Railway mania in the 19th century – but perhaps the most popular comparison is the dot-com bubble of 2000.

    Ion drive meets drone, as small plane flies with no moving parts

    The Johnson Indoor Track at MIT probably won't go down in history in the same way as Kitty Hawk has, but it was the scene of a first in powered flight. A team of researchers has managed to build the first aircraft powered by an ionic wind, a propulsion system that requires no moving parts. While the flight took place using a small drone, the researchers' calculations suggest that the efficiency of the design would double simply by building a larger craft.
