Swansea University scientists working at CERN have again made a landmark finding, taking them one step closer to answering the question of why matter exists and illuminating the mysteries of the Big Bang and the birth of the Universe.
In their paper published in Nature the physicists from the University's College of Science, working with an international collaborative team at CERN, describe the first observation of spectral line shapes in antihydrogen, the antimatter equivalent of hydrogen.
Professor Mike Charlton said: "The existence of antimatter is well established in physics, and it is buried deep in the heart of some of the most successful theories ever developed. But we have yet to answer a central question of why didn't matter and antimatter, which it is believed were created in equal amounts when the Big Bang started the Universe, mutually self-annihilate?
"We also have yet to address why there is any matter left in the Universe at all. This conundrum is one of the central open questions in fundamental science, and one way to search for the answer is to bring the power of precision atomic physics to bear upon antimatter."
It has long been established that any excited atom will reach its lowest state by emitting photons, and the spectrum of light and microwaves emitted from them represents a kind of atomic fingerprint and it is a unique identifier. The most familiar everyday example is the orange of the sodium streetlights.
Hydrogen has its own spectrum and, as the simplest and most abundant atom in the Universe, it holds a special place in physics. The properties of the hydrogen atom are known with high accuracy. The one looked at in this paper concerns the so-called hyperfine splitting, which in the case of hydrogen has been determined with a precision of one part in ten trillion. This transition is used these days in modern navigation and geo-positioning.
The team have made antihydrogen by replacing the proton nucleus of the ordinary atom by an antiproton, while the electron has been substituted by a positron. Last year, in ground-breaking work published in Nature, the team used UV light to detect the so-called 1S-2S transition between positron energy levels. Now, the team has used microwaves to flip the spin of the positron. This resulted not only in the first precise determination of the antihydrogen hyperfine splitting, but also the first antimatter transition line shape, a plot of the spin flip probability versus the microwave frequency. If there is a difference between matter and antimatter, it could be found in tiny differences between this line shape in hydrogen and antihydrogen.

Do Honeybees Feel Pain?

By Ross Pomeroy
Most complex animals feel pain, but what about insects? Does the buzzing fly feel the crunch of a swatter? Does the pesky mosquito recoil in agony when stung by a bug zapper? Do experiments on fruit fly gladiators constitute torture?
Seeing as how research on insect pain is scant, those questions remain unanswered. Seeking to begin to fill the information void, researchers based out of the The Queensland Brain Institute at the University of Queensland in Australia conducted a rather ingenious experiment on honeybees. Their efforts are published in the journal Scientific Reports.
Senior Research Technician Julia Groening and her colleagues Dustin Venini and Mandyam Srinivasan conducted two experiments, with 540 bees in each. In the first, the trio affixed clips to the legs of half the bees, to "create the sensation of a continuous pinch, similar to an attack of a biting predator or competitor." The other bees were left unharmed to serve as controls. Then, across nine different replications, thirty pinched bees and thirty control bees were allowed to free feed in a cage with feeders containing pure sucrose solution and feeders containing sucrose solution with morphine.
The researchers also conducted a second experiment, identical but for one difference: Half of the bees had one middle leg amputated, while the other half was left unharmed.
The researchers hypothesized that if bees feel pain, an injury would prompt them to choose morphine-containing solution over pure sucrose.
Results from the experiments did not support this hypothesis. Clipped bees from the first experiment did not consume more morphine than control bees. In the second experiment, amputated bees did consume more morphine/sucrose solution, but they also consumed more pure sucrose solution. According to the researchers, this indicates that "amputation prompts an immune response, which entails increased energetic demands." In other words, the amputated bees weren't drinking more morphine solution to relieve pain; they were drinking more because their injury was metabolically taxing – they were hungry. (Figure below: Injured and non-injured bees consumed morphine/sucrose and sucrose solutions in the same proportions.)
According to Groening and her co-authors, bees display complex behaviors that showcase advanced learning skills and cognitive abilities, suggesting some level of self-awareness and maybe even a basic form of consciousness. (Scientists recently taught bees to play golf!)
However, based on current scientific evidence, they don't appear capable of experiencing pain.
As is almost always the case, more research is needed.
"We conclude that further experiments are required to gain insights into potential pain-like states in honeybees and other insects," the authors write.

A Common Caterpillar Can Eat Plastic

Drop a few waxworms of the species Galleria mellonella into a plastic bag, and you may find yourself without a bag. New research published to the journal Current Biology shows that these waxworms, the caterpillar larvae of honeycomb moths, are capable of digesting and biodegrading polyethylene, the most common form of plastic. 
You know polyethylene well. Eighty million metric tons of the stuff are produced each year, most commonly in the form of bags, films, and bottles. You probably also know that polyethylene is not readily biodegradable. The special treatments required to recycle the plastic are very expensive, so the overwhelming majority of waste ends up in landfills.
Enter insects. In 2015, researchers demonstrated that mealworms could eat and digest polystyrene, the plastic synonymous with plates, cups, and take-out boxes, with the aid of their gut bacteria. A year before, that same group showed that bacteria inside the guts of waxworms of the Indian mealmoth can degrade polyethylene.
It was this finding that set the stage for the present study. Scientists Federica Bertocchini, Paolo Bombelli, and Chris Howe noticed that plastic bags containing waxworms rapidly became riddled with holes, so they decided to "feed" the worms in a more controlled fashion. In numerous settings, they left the caterpillars alone with various plastic films and observed what happened. Invariably, the plastic films would end up pockmarked with holes. In the most striking example, the team left one hundred waxworms with a plastic bag. After twelve hours, the hungry critters had devoured 92 milligrams of it.
To confirm that the plastic was actually getting digested and not merely chewed up and excreted, the researchers smeared mashed-up waxworms (euphemistically dubbed "homogenate") on polyethylene films. Fourteen hours later, the films had lost an average of 13% of their mass.
So how are these caterpillars able to eat plastic?
"The answer may lie in the ecology of the waxworm itself," the researchers hypothesize. "They feed on beeswax... Beeswax is composed of a highly diverse mixture of lipid compounds, including alkanes, alkenes, fatty acids, and esters."
Overall, this hodgepodge of chemicals is fundamentally similar to plastic, the researchers say. Both beeswax and polyethylene are primarily built with the same hydrocarbon bond, and it seems the bacteria populating waxworm intestines are capable of breaking it down.
The researchers are working on a way to commercialize the discovery now. Their aim is to create a viable way to get rid of plastic waste. Such a strategy is likely years away, but it can't come soon enough!

Is Space Full of Quantum Foam?

Is Space Full of Quantum Foam?

Look at space under a microscope and what do you see? Nothing. Magnify 1,000 times. Nothing. Magnify 1,000,000 times. Still nothing. Magnify 1,000,000,000 times. Absolutely nothing.
At this point, the average person would probably be satisfied with the conclusion that space is, in fact, nothing. This makes intuitive sense, after all, and besides, we're already far beyond the magnification power of real microscopes.
Quantum physicists aren't average people, however. Armed with theoretical microscopes, they keep on magnifying, gazing deeper and deeper into empty space until out of nothing, they suddenly see something.
That something is a roiling collection of virtual particles, collectively called quantum foam. According to quantum physicists, virtual particles exist briefly as fleeting fluctuations in the fabric of spacetime, like bubbles in beer foam.
"The 'bubbles' in the quantum foam are quadrillions of times smaller than atomic nuclei and last for infinitesimal fractions of a second—or in 'quantum-speak', the size of a Planck Length for a Planck Time," Eric Perlman, a Professor of Physics and Space Science at Florida Institute of Technology, says.
Something so utterly small has obviously not been directly observed. So why can we be very sure this quantum foam exists? One of the greatest pieces of evidence for it was predicted back in 1947 by Dutch physicists Hendrik Casimir and Dirk Polder. Fermilab senior experimental physicist Don Lincoln explained the so-called "Casimir Effect" for PBS:
If the quantum foam was real, they reasoned, then the particles should exist everywhere in space. Further, since particles also have a wave nature, there should be waves everywhere. So what they imagined was to have two parallel metal plates, placed near one another. The quantum foam would exist both between the plates and outside of them. But because the plates were placed near one another, only short waves could exist between the plates, while short and long wavelength waves could exist outside them. Because of this imbalance, the excess of waves outside the plates should overpower the smaller number of waves between them, pushing the two plates together. Thirty years after it was first predicted, this effect was observed qualitatively. It was measured accurately in 1997.
The idea that space is, at its very foundation, a frothy, chaotic mess has huge ramifications for our understanding of the universe.
"It is on such short distance scales that we encounter the fundamental incompatibility between general relativity and quantum mechanics," string theorist and Columbia University professor Brian Greene wrote in his book The Elegant Universe. "The notion of a smooth spatial geometry, the central principle of general relativity, is destroyed by the violent fluctuations of the quantum world on short distance scales."
Thus, conclusively demonstrating that quantum foam does or does not exist would be very useful in sorting out the true nature of reality. But, as happens frustratingly often in science, recent experiments disagree. A possible way to test for the presence of quantum foam is to measure how long it takes photons erupting from stellar explosions to travel great distances. If spacetime is flat and boring, two photons ejected from the same source should take the same time to travel a set distance. But if spacetime is foamy, then one photon might get slowed by the slight perturbations. A 2009 analysis found that high-energy and low-energy photons from the same gamma-ray burst arrived at a set location at different times, but two subsequent analyses of other bursts showed little to no variance, indicating that spacetime is smooth, or at least not as foamy.
None of the experiments, however, can measure with fine enough detail to rule out quantum foam on the tiniest of scales. We might just have to wait for a microscope that can see down to 1.6 x 10^-35 meters – the Planck length – to be certain, and constructing such a device would be a tall task indeed.

How to Install Debian, Ubuntu, or Kali Linux on Your Chromebook

How to Install Debian, Ubuntu, or Kali Linux on Your Chromebook


Chromebook tutorial
Learn how to get the best of both worlds and run your favorite Linux distro and Chrome OS side by side in this step-by-step guide.
Chromebooks are steadily gaining market share. With the arrival of Android apps to the platform, Chromebooks have become an ideal platform for a very large user-base, and Chrome OS is a very important piece of technology in the current consumer space.
However, if you are a Linux user, you may need many utilities and tools to get the job done. For example, I run my own servers and manage them remotely. At the same time, I also manage my Linux systems and a file server at home. I need tools.
Additionally, Chrome OS, as a result of being a Google product, has some restrictions. For example, there is no way to even download Creative Commons YouTube videos on Chromebook. What if I want to download Ubuntu or openSUSE and create a bootable USB drive? As much as Chrome OS is a Linux-based desktop, it does lack some features. So, you need what I call a “legacy” Linux desktop on your Chromebook. But wiping Chrome OS and installing a desktop Linux on it would mean losing access to millions of Android apps and games. What if you can get the best of both worlds? What if you can run a pure Linux distribution and Chrome OS, side by side, without dual booting?
That’s exactly what Crouton does.

Preparing your Chromebook for Crouton

Crouton is supported on a wide range of Chromebooks. I tested it on my ASUS Chromebook Flip, and it worked great. Chromebooks keep all data and files on Google servers, so you don’t have to worry about taking a backup of your files as you have to do on other operating systems. However, if you have files on a local ‘Download’ folder, then you must take a backup as the next step will wipe everything from your Chromebook. Once you have taken the backup on an external drive, it’s time to create a recovery image of your operating system to restore it if something goes wrong or if you want to go back to the stock Chromebook experience.
Install Chromebook recovery utility from the Chrome web store. Open the app and follow the instructions to create the recovery drive. It’s an easy three-step, click next process. All you need is working Internet and a USB drive with at least 4GB space.

Figure 2: Then follow the easy to follow instructions.
Once the recovery disk is created, unplug it and proceed with the following steps. You can also create a recovery disk from Linux, macOS and Windows PCs using the Chrome web browser. Open web store in Chrome browser and install recovery tool. Once installed, follow the above procedure.

Change to developer mode

If you have the latest Chromebook, you can easily enable the developer mode by holding  Esc + Refresh keys and then pushing  the ‘power’ button.
It will boot into recovery mode, which will show a scary warning on the screen (this warning will appear at every reboot). Just ignore it and let Chrome OS wipe your data. The process can take up to 15 minutes, so don’t turn off your Chromebook.
Once the system has successfully booted into developer mode, at every reboot you will see the warning screen. You can either wait for a few seconds for it to automatically boot into Chrome OS, or press Ctrl+d to immediately boot into Chrome OS.
Now log into your Gmail account as usual and open the command-line interface by pressing Ctrl+alt+t.
Once in the terminal, open Bash shell by typing:
In another tab, open the Crouton GitHub page and download Crouton (it’s downloaded into the Downloads directory)
There are many operating systems available for Chromebooks via Crouton, including Debian, Ubuntu, and Kali Linux.

As is self-evident, not all distributions or releases are supported. If you are planning to install Ubuntu, it defaults to Precise release, which is quite old, so you may face issues with Crouton on some machines. I heavily recommend using Trusty release.
To find which releases are available, run this command in the shell:
sh ~/Downloads/crouton -r list
To find which DEs are available, run:
sudo sh -e ~/Downloads/crouton -t list
Let’s say you want to install Xfce, the lightweight distribution suited for the low-powered device, but you want to install Ubuntu Trusty. You would use this pattern:
sh ~/Downloads/crouton -r trusty -t xfce
If you want to install the default Ubuntu distribution with xfce instead, use:
sh ~/Downloads/crouton -t xfce
The installation can take a bit longer because Crouton downloads the entire distribution over the Internet and installs it. In my case, it took more than 20 minutes.
Once the installation is complete, it will ask you to create a username and password. Now you can boot into your Linux distribution with this command:
sudo startTARGET
Replace TARGET with your desktop environment. If you installed Xfce, the command to start it will be:
sudo startxfce4
If you installed Unity, run:
sudo startunity
The most interesting thing about Crouton is that it runs the desired Linux distribution simultaneously with Chrome OS, which means you can easily switch between the two operating systems as if you’re switching between two tabs of a browser. Using:
Ctrl+Alt+Shift+ <- span="">
switches back to Chrome OS and typing
switches to Ubuntu Linux.
Now you have a standard Linux distribution running on Chromebook and you can install any package that you want. Bear in mind that, depending on your architecture, some packages may or may not be available because not all Linux applications are available for ARM processors.
That’s where the “best of both worlds” concept comes into play. You can simply switch back to Chrome OS and use applications like Microsoft Office, Adobe Photoshop, and thousands of games and applications that are available through Android.
At the same time, you can also access all the Linux utilities, whether it’s sshing into your server or using applications like GIMP and LibreOffice. To be honest, I do most of my consumer side work in Chrome OS; it has almost all commercial and popular apps and services. Whether I want to watch Netflix, HBO Now, Hulu, or Amazon Prime, I can do this on the same machine where I can also use core Linux utilities and manage my servers easily.
