Scientists discover Big Bang fossil hiding in space

first_img NASA InSight lander rocks its journey to Mars: A view in pictures 22 Photos CNET’s Holiday Gift Guide: The place to find the best tech gifts for 2018.NASA turns 60: The space agency has taken humanity farther than anyone else, and it has plans to go further. Sci-Tech 0 Post a comment NASA, ESA, STScI, and G. Piotto (Università degli Studi di Padova) and E. Noyola (Max Planck Institut für extraterrestrische Physik) The first stars in the universe are long gone, but their signatures may still be writ across space, buried in gas clouds like space fossils.And scientists believe they’ve uncovered one.Researchers at Swinburne University in Melbourne, Australia used their time at the W. M. Keck Observatory, home to two of the world’s most powerful telescopes, to go on an astro-archeological dig through space. They discovered a “pristine cloud of gas” in the distant universe, seemingly untouched by heavy elements, suggesting it may be a “fossil relic” of the Big Bang.Space fossilsHow do you find a fossil relic in space?Well, the universe has had quite a few birthdays — it’s some 13.7 billion years old. Over that time, a lot of stars have lived and died. At the end of a star’s life, it can sometimes explode, becoming a supernova. This massive explosion spews out a lot of waste heavy elements (metals), so generally when scientists look into space, they often find gas clouds murky with this material. Over 13.7 billion years, a lot of stars have exploded — so there’s a lot of waste in the clouds.Examining these gas clouds allows for scientists to gather insight on some of the earliest events in the universe. If the gas clouds are unspoiled by the waste, they may have existed in the infant universe. The research team think they’ve identified one that’s practically untouched by waste heavy elements.”Our inspiration is actually to find relics of the first stars in the universe,” said Prof. Michael Murphy, one of the lead researchers on the study. Gas clouds that are relics of the first stars would be “almost pristine”, according to Murphy, so there would still be traces of the heavy element waste within them.But the fossil relic they found had no detectable levels of waste — it was completely clean — suggesting it comes from the very early universe and has been untouched for 1.5 billion years after the Big Bang.”This discovery – a seemingly pristine cloud – is really important,” said Murphy. “We need to know whether such clouds can last billions of years without being polluted by multiple generations of stars.”Before this discovery, only two such gas clouds had been discovered — and those discoveries were mostly accidental. By actively seeking out the gas clouds and demonstrating that they are unspoiled by heavy elements, Murphy’s team has shown that it’s possible to go digging for them.”Now we’ve proven that we can systematically find such fossils, we really have a chance of knowing how rare or common they are,” said Murphy. “That’s crucial for testing our understanding of how the first galaxies formed.”The first starsIt’s not the first time these relic gas clouds have proven fruitful for Swinburne researchers. In 2016, the team discovered an “almost pristine” gas cloud using data from the Very Large Telescope in Chile.”It proved that trying to hunt for these clouds – and the completely pristine clouds like the one we’ve now discovered – in a targeted way was feasible and could, in principle, identify a “smoking gun” signature of the first stars,” said Murphy.However, there may be alternate explanations for why the gas cloud is so clean — and those explanations are exciting, too.One possibility is that the cloud is polluted by one of the universe’s first stars, leaving only traces of heavy elements, undetectable by the telescopes the team used. Another is that the gas cloud is moving through a galaxy for the very first time, so it has yet to be polluted by other stars just yet.”This is an exciting possibility because understanding how such gas clouds ‘feed’ galaxies is a major problem in astrophysics,” explained Murphy.”We’d like to test this possibility by mapping any galaxies near the cloud in future.”And so searching for the earliest signatures scribbled across the cosmos continues.

3 workers die after taking chemical in Rajshahi

first_imgMap of RajshahiThree factory workers, who among 10 others fell sick after ‘having poisonous chemical’ on Wednesday night at Dyeingpara village in Godagari upazila, died at Rajshahi Medical College Hospital (RMCH) on Thursday, reports UNB.The deceased are Dulal Hossain, 25, son of Sirajul Islam, Bakul, 36, son of Tafizul Islam and Towhid, 23, son of Yusuf, residents of Dyeingpara village. Officer-in-charge of Godagari police station Hipjur Alam Munshi said ten workers, including the three deceased, of ‘Tim Pharmaceuticals’ took some liquid chemical, used to produce medicine, to home on Wednesday night. They had the chemical mixing with beverage and subsequently fell sick several hours later. As their conditions deteriorated, the 10 workers were taken to RMCH on early Thursday when doctors declared Bakul and Towhid dead. Later, Dulal breathed his last around 2:30pm at the hospital, said OC Hipjur.last_img read more

Confronting the Horrific Legacy of Lynching in Maryland

first_imgBy AFRO StaffThe last recorded lynching in the state of Maryland occurred Oct. 18, 1933, when George Armwood, a 23-year-old laborer was murdered in Princess Anne on the state’s Eastern Shore. The heinous details of Armwood’s murder horrified the state’s Black community and galvanized the burgeoning civil rights community. Armwood was just one of dozens of Black men, women and children who were the victims of White terrorist murder in Maryland over the centuries.“Lynching in Maryland: The Journey from Truth to Reconciliation,” is a conference that will confront that grim history of lynchings in Maryland.The conference will take place Oct. 13, at the Reginald F. Lewis Museum, located at 830 E. Pratt St. Registration for the conference begins at 9:30 a.m., with a start time of 9:45 a.m. The conference concludes at 1 p.m. It will coincide with the 85th anniversary of Armwood’s murder.Between the end of the Civil War and the beginning of World War II, more than 4,000 Black Americans were lynched in the United States; at least 40 of those were in Maryland.Lynching in Maryland: The Journey from Truth to Reconciliation conference will be moderated by Dr. Kaye Wise Whitehead, host of Today With Dr. Kaye, on WEAA-FM, professor at Loyola University and a columnist for the Baltimore AFRO-American Newspaper.Speakers include: Rev. Dr. Frances “Toni” Draper, AFRO CEO and Publisher; Evan Milligan, Equal Justice Initiative; Billy Murphy, Murphy, Falconer and Murphy, attorney for Freddy Gray family; Ben Jealous, Democratic candidate for Governor; Dr. Nicholas Creary, Bowie State University; Ryan Cox, MD State Archives; Jim Wyda, Federal Public Defender; Jake Day, Mayor of Salisbury, Md.; Dan Rodricks, Baltimore Sun columnist; David Armenti, MD Historical Society and Joseline Peña-Melnyk, Md.
