SYDNEY, Oct. 22 (Xinhua) — With the help of artificial intelligence and machine learning, Australian researchers have developed a new sensor to make it easier for Earth-based optical telescopes to detect distant Earth-like planets.
The new photonic wavefront sensor was developed by researchers at the University of Sydney and published on Wednesday. It can measure and correct the “twinkle”, a distortion of starlight caused by viewing through the Earth’s atmosphere from an optical telescope.
“The…

Progeny of novel combination is more vigorous and productive than parental plants.
Novel grafted plants — consisting of rootstock epigenetically modified to “believe” it has been under stress — joined to an unmodified scion, or above-ground shoot, give rise to progeny that are more vigorous, productive, and resilient than the parental plants.
That is the surprising finding of a team of researchers that conducted large-scale field trials with tomato plants at three widely separated locations over…

A little dead star that dazzled us earlier this year is not done with its shenanigans.
Magnetar SGR 1935+2154, which in April emitted the first known fast radio burst from inside the Milky Way, has flared up once more, giving astronomers yet another chance to solve more than one major cosmic mystery.
On 8 October 2020, the CHIME/FRB collaboration detected SGR 1935+2154 emitting three millisecond radio bursts in three seconds. Following up on the CHIME/FRB detection, the FAST radio telescope found…
