Ultra-close stars discovered inside a planetary nebula

An image obtained with the Hubble Space Telescope of the planetary nebula M3-1, the central star of which is actually a binary system with one of the shortest orbital periods known.

An international team of astronomers have discovered two stars in a binary pair that complete an orbit around each other in a little over three hours, residing in the planetary nebula M3-1. Remarkably, the stars could drive a nova explosion, an entirely unexpected event based on our current understanding of

3D-printed lithium-ion batteries

LED bangle, including a lithium-ion battery, was made entirely by 3D printing

Electric vehicles and most electronic devices, such as cell phones and laptop computers, are powered by lithium-ion batteries.

For almost two centuries, scientists have theorized that life may be distributed throughout the Universe by meteoroids, asteroids, planetoids, and other astronomical objects. This theory, known as Panspermia, is based on the idea that microorganisms and the chemical precursors of life are able to survive being transported from one star
