+ - Gamma Ray Bursts Possibly Ruled Out As Source Of Ultra-Energetic Cosmic Rays ->

Submitted by steppedleader
steppedleader (2490064) writes "Scientists at the IceCube Neutrino Observatory have possibly ruled out gamma-ray bursts as the source of ultra-high-energy cosmic rays. From an article in the Christian Science Monitor about the observations:
"The investigators focused on neutrinos whose energy levels suggest they are linked with gamma-ray bursts. The fireballs that give rise to the gamma rays seen in gamma-ray bursts were thought to potentially hurl particles at very high energies, generating both cosmic rays and energetic neutrinos. After analyzing data on 307 gamma-ray bursts in 2008 and 2009, the scientists discovered the levels of these neutrinos were at least 3.7 times lower than expected. This suggests gamma-ray bursts are probably not the sources of the most powerful cosmic rays."
The cosmic rays in question are notable because their energies can be beyond the Greisen–Zatsepin–Kuzmin limit, our current theoretical upper limit for the cosmic ray energies."

As a matter of fact in today’s world when almost everyone living in a city or even in a remote suburb has access to internet, it is strange to observe that when they are asked about their IP address the most common reply is ‘I do not have any idea what my IP address is’ or ‘can I find out my IP address?’. Here are some of the facts that you must know if you are using an internet connection."

+ - New Study Finds Mysterious Lack of Dark Matter in Sun's Neighbourhood->

Submitted by

fishmike writes "The most accurate study so far of the motions of stars in the Milky Way has found no evidence for dark matter in a large volume around the Sun. According to widely accepted theories, the solar neighbourhood was expected to be filled with dark matter, a mysterious invisible substance that can only be detected indirectly by the gravitational force it exerts. But a new study by a team of astronomers in Chile has found that these theories just do not fit the observational facts. This may mean that attempts to directly detect dark matter particles on Earth are unlikely to be successful."

alan11 writes "Your budget is the first thing to be considered. Granite Worktops is not extremely expensive but it is charged a bit more as compared to marble. Therefore, it might exceed your budget restrictions. The quality of granite is another important matter. There are several qualities of granite that are available in the market and be sure to choose the best for your granite worktops. In addition, when granite countertops are being installed in your kitchen, you have to ensure that a sealer has been applied on them. This is due to the fact that granite is a porous rock and liquids like water and oil can be absorbed by it which causes stain"
