Woman is secretly followed by Apple’s AirTag at Disneyland

AirTags, released by Apple in 2021, are small, circular tracking devices, slightly larger than a two-pound coin.  One AirTag costs £29;  keychains sold separately (file photo)

One woman has described how she was secretly followed by someone who secretly placed an Apple AirTag on her. Hannah Rose May, an Irish writer and actress, said her location was tracked unbeknownst to Disneyland California for two hours on a Saturday evening in June. She finally realized that she was only being tracked because … Read more

10th anniversary of the discovery of the Higgs boson: what have we learned from the ‘God particle’?

The discovery of the Higgs boson in July 2012 forms the basis for the existence of all elementary particles in our universe.  Shown above is a visualization of an event registered with the CMS detector at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN.  It shows the characteristics expected from the decay of the SM Higgs Boson to a few photons

Many Americans are celebrating the nation’s birthday today, but physicists and science nerds are also celebrating the tenth anniversary of the discovery of the Higgs boson — otherwise known as the “God particle” — on July 4. You may not be familiar with physicist Peter Higgs, who first predicted the existence of the new particle … Read more

‘Super-Earth’ may be even more habitable than our own planet, study says

Researchers say rocky exoplanets — planets outside our solar system — with primordial atmospheres dominated by hydrogen and helium, have surfaces warm enough to harbor liquid water

‘Super-Earths’ outside our solar system that are rich in hydrogen or helium may be even more habitable than our own planet, a new study suggests. Researchers say that rocky exoplanets with atmospheres dominated by hydrogen and helium have surfaces warm enough to hold liquid water. The presence of liquid water is “beneficial for life,” so … Read more

‘Stretching’ the continents 56 million years caused global warming, study finds

The 'stretching' of the continents 56 million years ago likely led to one of the most extreme periods of global warming in Earth's history, new research suggests.  Pictured is a false color satellite image of the Faroe Islands - one of the locations studied by scientists

The stretching of the continents 56 million years ago likely led to one of the most extreme periods of global warming in Earth’s history, new research suggests. During this time, the planet experienced a temperature rise of 5-8 °C (9-14 °F), culminating in the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM), which lasted about 170,000 years. It caused … Read more
