    NEW ZEALAND -- Scientists have taken the first ever photos of a glow-in-the-dark shark producing its own light.The kitefin shark, Dalatias licha, is the world's largest known bioluminescent vertebrate, growing to nearly six feet in length.It was found in an area of ocean known as Chatham Rise, off the east coast of New Zealand's South Island, according to a study published Tuesday by researchers from the Catholic University of Louvain, Belgium and the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA) in New Zealand.Bioluminescence refers to the production of visible light by living organisms through a biochemical reaction. Some 57 of the 540 known shark species are thought to be capable of producing light, study co-author Jérme Mallefet, head of the marine biology laboratory at UCLouvain, told CNN on Wednesday.While specimens had previously shown that the kitefin shark should be capable of producing light, they are "really difficult to observe,"...

    During an interview that aired Sunday on CBS’s “60 Minutes,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) urged his GOP colleagues to join him and the Democrats in voting to impeach President Donald Trump even though his term ends on January 20. The House impeached Trump for “incitement of insurrection” after a group of the president’s supporters breached the U.S. Capitol earlier this month. Schumer argued that Trump inciting the group is “the most despicable action any president has ever taken” and said convicting him means he can never run for office again. “What Donald Trump did is the most despicable action any president has ever taken,” Schumer emphasized. “And he should be convicted at this trial. In addition, if we convict him, we can then, by only 51 votes, remove him from ever running for office again. I know we want to heal. But when something this awful happens, to just...
    Congress is poised to pass what supporters consider to be the most expansive package of provisions ever implemented to deal with climate change. The measure, the Energy Act of 2020, was included in the 5,593-page pandemic relief and government spending bill expected to be passed this week. It’s the product of years of work and difficult negotiations from interest groups and members of both parties. “This package demonstrates the progress that is possible when businesses, environmental groups, labor, and policymakers work together to find solutions on difficult issues,” said Marty Durbin, senior vice president of policy at the Chamber of Commerce, who hailed the package as the first significant energy bill since 2007 and the “biggest action Congress has ever taken to address climate change.” The package is headlined by a measure to phase down hydrofluorocarbons, or HFCs, a climate-warming refrigerant, by 85% by 2035, which would be one...
    A BEER can placed over a telescope and then forgotten about for eight years may have created the longest-exposure photo ever taken. A Master of Fine Art student at the University of Hertfordshire created a simple pinhole camera with a beer can and photographic paper and then left it on a telescope at Bayfordbury Observatory in England. The beer-can camera was attached to one of the telescope domes by Fine Art student Regina Valkenborgh in August 2012 - in the week after the closing of the London 2012 Olympics, until finally being opened in September 2020. pic.twitter.com/R4Rdz7XSDO— University of Hertfordshire Observatory (@BayfordburyObs) December 10, 2020 Eight years and one month later the efforts of photographer Regina Valkenborgh were discovered.

    On Thursday’s The Late Show, Stephen Colbert celebrated the last presidential debate of 2020, and more importantly, President Donald Trump’s last debate ever. Win or lose on November 3, Trump will never have to run for president again, and what does that mean? No more Trump debates, or as Colbert put it, we got “our last wisdom tooth taken out.” “Tonight was Donald Trump’s very last chance to make his closing argument,” Colbert said. “Please ignore what he’s like or anything he’s ever done.” The host then created a video of Trump repeatedly saying “blah blah blah” until a glitchy mute button blew him up. Somehow, this did not get rid of the president, as he appeared in Colbert’s studio, unable to stop spewing nonsense. The host then sprayed him with a water bottle meant to tame unruly pets until the president finally disappeared from the scene. “It’s impossible to keep them...
    The home in Frederick where Chris Watts killed his pregnant wife, Shanann, in August 2018 before taking the lives of Celeste and Bella, their two young daughters, is currently being viewed by more people than ever before. But although the property, located at 2825 Saratoga Trail, spent well over a year for sale, it's now been taken off the market — and that's just as well, since a disturbing new movie about the tragedy creates even more doubts that anyone would ever want to live within its walls again. On September 30, Netflix launched American Murder: The Family Next Door, a documentary about the slayings that's assembled almost entirely of video or images shared online by Shanann or footage from the investigation into her disappearance, including body-camera clips that seem to capture every inch of the living space. The house is practically another character in a film that chillingly transforms...
    Scientists have revealed the first 3,200-megapixel digital photos, including a close-up shot of the head of a Romanesco cauliflower.   The images, taken at the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory in California, are the largest ever taken in a single shot.  They are so large that it would take 378 4K ultra-high-definition TV screens to display one of them in full size.  The camera responsible for the images will be the 'sensitive eye' of the new Rubin Observatory in Chile, currently under construction and expected to be operational next year.      Once installed at Rubin Observatory, the camera will produce panoramic images of the complete Southern sky – one panorama every few nights for 10 years.

            by Debra Heine  Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Wednesday denied ever taking a cognitive test—even though he recently bragged that he takes them “constantly.” After scoffing at the idea, Biden, who was appearing at a virtual forum at the 2020 National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) and National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ) Joint Virtual Convention, compared the question to asking if black CBS reporter Errol Barnett had taken cocaine before the interview. “When asked in June if you’d been tested for cognitive decline, you responded that you’re constantly tested,” Barnett reminded Biden. “Please clarify specifically—have you taken a cognitive test?” Biden had told the reporter in June “I’ve been tested. I’ve been tested constantly.” He also said he could “hardly wait to compare my cognitive capability to the cognitive capability of the man I’m running against.” After laughing at Barnett’s question, Biden replied “no, I haven’t taken a test—why...

    However, it is unclear whether these miniature versions are controlled by the same mechanisms as other solar flares.

    The European Space Agency and NASA unveiled the first images captured by the $1.5 billion Solar Orbiter spacecraft Thursday, stunning photos revealing spectacular detail and providing a possible answer to a long-standing question: what heats up the star's outer atmosphere, or corona, to millions of degrees? "It's a little counter intuitive because you would think, if you had a body that's very hot at the center and relatively cool at the surface, it would be even cooler the farther you go away," said Daniel Müller, ESA's Solar Orbiter project scientist. "But on the contrary, for the sun we have a hot core (and) a relatively cool surface surrounded by a super hot atmosphere of more than a million degrees. It's as if you would light a fire and as you move farther away from the fire, it doesn't get cooler, but in fact it really starts to burn you when...

    This morning, the European Space Agency and NASA have unveiled the closest images of the Sun ever taken by a spacecraft: high-resolution pictures taken by their newly launched Solar Orbiter spacecraft. Already, the pictures are revealing weird phenomena on the Sun that we’ve never seen in such detail. “We didn’t really expect the first images to turn out really this great,” Daniel Müller, ESA’s project scientist for the Solar Orbiter mission, tells The News Brig. “They’re not only really sharp and perfectly exposed from the technical perspective, but they really show things that we have not seen before.” “They really show things that we have not seen before.” Thanks to these images, scientists have discovered what appear to be relatively “tiny” solar flares peppered across the Sun’s surface. The scientists behind the mission have dubbed these small flares “campfires,” as they are millions to billions of times smaller than the...
    NASA and the European Space Agency have released the closest images ever taken of the Sun, revealing "campfires" scattered across its scorching surface. The incredible snaps were captured by the Solar Orbiter probe last month as it soared within 47million miles of the Sun – about half the distance between Earth and our star. 3Nasa's Solar Orbiter probe has snapped the closest ever image of our starCredit: PA:Press Association Launched in February, the spacecraft will eventually swoop within 26million miles of the Sun's surface, closer than any probe before it.
