NASA released a haunting collection of space audio to showcase the radio emissions recorded during spacecraft missions. Scientists transform the data collected into sound to better interpret the emissions through a process called “data sonification.” This allowed NASA to translate into breathtaking audio the sound produced by the magnetic fields surrounding the planet of Jupiter.

A species of salamander that hasn’t been seen since 1975 has been rediscovered alive and kicking in Guatemala. The biologists who have spent years searching for it are understandably delighted, and it’s also potentially good news for the ecology of the region.   The juvenile Jackson’s climbing salamander (Bolitoglossa jacksoni), also known as the “golden

A new method of using photons to carry information might provide a new wireless solution for communication. A collaborative team of researchers developed a way to ‘twist’ photons to improve on open-area quantum information transfer.   Using particles of light, i.e. photons, to transmit information isn’t exactly new. Photons have seen use in a number of tests
