New research shows that there may be another stable state of matter in which some atoms behave like a liquid and a solid at the same time.Atoms in physical material have been typically thought to be in one of three states: they were either solid, liquid, or they were gas. But researchers have discovered some elements like potassium that can take on properties of two different states at the same time. The research is said to clear up whether there was a distinct state of matter or the atom structures represented a transition between two stages – whether solid, liquid or gas. Tests were carried out on the “simple metal”, such as applying high pressures and temperatures, with powerful computer simulations used to study what was known as the chain-melted state. Experts from the University of Edinburgh believe more than half a dozen other elements – including sodium and bismuth – are capable of existing in this new state. Applications Dr Andreas Hermann, of the … [Read more...] about It’s possible for matter to exist in two states at once

Date created : 08/04/2019 - 12:10Latest update : 08/04/2019 - 12:11 With just one day to go until the Israeli parliamentary election, FRANCE 24 visited the city of Haifa, often described as a model of religious co-existence. But some of the city's Arab inhabitants say they feel like second-class citizens. Haifa, on Israel’s northern coast, has been portrayed as a model of co-existence – a place where Jews, Muslims and Christians live side by side in perfect harmony.But despite efforts to promote this co-existence, parts of Haifa’s Arab population say they feel they are treated as second-class citizens, and are being discriminated against. Israeli Arabs currently constitute the third-largest block in the Israeli parliament, but it remains difficult for them to blend in as rightwing parties accuse them of being traitors, intent on destroying the Jewish state.Click on the player above to watch FRANCE 24’s report from Haifa.>> Watch part two of … [Read more...] about Is Israel’s Haifa a model of religious co-existence?
An enigmatic cross-shaped image captured by the Hubble Space Telescope in the Whirlpool Galaxy drew the attention of conspiracy theorists, in no small part due to the fact that the shape in question appears to vaguely resemble a crucifix. According to the image’s description posted on the space telescope’s official website, hubblesite.org, the "X" silhouette is a product of "absorption by dust and marks the exact position of a black hole which may have a mass equivalent to one-million stars like the sun". © AP Photo / M. Kornmesser/ESO via APSongs of the Universe: NASA Reveals INSANE Space Music in Hubble Photos (VIDEO)While the picture itself was taken way back in 1992, its reemergence on a conspiracy website, Disclose.tv, triggered an animated discussion in the comments section, with people debating the significance of the image in question.
