Image Credit: Armastas/iStock In the mid-1970s, the Soviet Union became the first, and to date, only nation, to have actually fired a cannon in space. Mounted on a space station, the actual details of the endeavor have remained secret for over forty years until now. Let’s take a look at this historic event. Did the Soviets really install a working cannon on a space station? In short, yes they did. Called the R-23M, the cannon was installed and tested on the Almaz space station in the 1970s.…

    Cellular Dynamics: First Panoramic Spatial Atlases of Life

    The SpatioTemporal Omics Consortium (STOC) is a collaborative research initiative that aims to accelerate our understanding of cellular complexity and interactions at tissue scale in development, physiology, and disease through large-scale spatially resolved multiomics analyses. International scientific consortium, the SpatioTemporal Omics Consortium (STOC), produces the first spatiotemporal maps of cellular dynamics in mice, Drosophila, zebrafish, and Arabidopsis, using BGI-Research’s world-leading Stereo-seq technology. An international team of scientists led by China’s BGI-Research published state-of-the-art panoramic spatial atlases of life, examining the cellular dynamics of organisms at different developmental stages and providing potentially significant new information for disease treatment, development, and aging,…

Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech Late in 2018, the gravitational wave observatory, LIGO, announced that they had detected the most distant and massive source of ripples of spacetime ever monitored: gravitational waves triggered by pairs of black holes colliding in deep space. Only since 2015 have we been able to observe these invisible astronomical bodies, which at that time could be detected only by their gravitational attraction. Then in a breakthrough in 2019, the Event Horizon Telescope captured an image of a black hole and its shadow for the first time.…

    Tantalizing Tectonics: Monstrous “Claw Mark” Scratches on the Surface of Mars

    This image from ESA’s Mars Express shows part of a large fault system on Mars known as Tantalus Fossae. This image comprises data gathered by Mars Express’ High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) on July 19, 2021. It was created using data from the nadir channel, the field of view aligned perpendicular to the surface of Mars, and the color channels of the HRSC. It is a ‘true color’ image, reflecting what would be seen by the human eye if looking at this region of Mars. The ground resolution is approximately 18 m/pixel and the images are centered at about 43°N/257°E.…
