High Altitude Water Cherenkov Observatory tests speed of light

Ultra-high energy gamma rays from the far reaches of the galaxy provide powerful proof that the predictions of relativity, including the constant speed of light, hold to the highest energy extremes yet probed

Machine learning reveals earth tremor and slip occur continuously, not intermittently

LOS ALAMOS, N.M., Feb. 26, 2020—Applying deep learning to seismic data has revealed tremor and slip occur at all times—before and after known large-scale slow-slip earthquakes—rather than intermittently in discrete bursts, as previously believed. Even more surprisingly, the machine learning generalizes to other tectonic environments, including the San Andreas Fault.   “The work tells us that [...]
