It is the first time you get an image of Saturn's north pole in one photo, both optical and infrared spectrum. And the results were very surprising: a hexagonal structure of gigantic dimensions. Although already known, or suspected, their existence since just over 20 years to catch a Voyager partial images of him had never before been observed with such clarity.
This structure is located about 75 km deep below the visible cloud ...

Not far from Hannover, Germany, is the GEO600 , the gravitational wave detector Germany and Britain.
For over seven years scientists working in the facilities of GEO600 have been working to detect gravitational waves, ie, ripples in spacetime generated by intensive astronomical objects. For example generated by neutron stars or black holes.

For years the results provided by the detector appeared to be plagued by a sort of background noise, in fact, using an analogy ...
