Doctors are learning that one of the best ways to fight disease and illness is by avoiding the very foods that cause chronic inflammation. While this isn’t a new concept for those with a more holistic view of the body, it is for the modern medical system, which focuses on treating symptoms instead of addressing the root cause of an issue

Not all planets orbit stars. There are some objects, known as rogue planets, that for some reason manage to escape the gravitational chains of their parent star and float freely around the galaxy. They are not easy to find, but thanks to a different approach, researchers have discovered two new ones.

The technique is known as gravitational microlensing and was made possible by the Optical Gravitational Lensing Experiment (OGLE). This survey has been going on for over two decades and is designed to detect the subtle variations in light from background stars as massive objects pass in front of them. The gravity of a planet-sized object can bend the light slightly for a few days but with the new objects, the effect was seen for less than half a day.

The team spotted the first object, OGLE-2017-BLG-0560, on April 16, 2017, and it was confirmed by three other observatories. The distance of the object is not known and that leads to some uncertainty about its mass, which could be anywhere between a few and 20 times the mass of Jupiter.

The discovery of this object, which had a very short microlensing signal, suggested that maybe similar events have been missed in previous analyses. The team discovered OGLE-2012-BLG-1323, an overlooked signal from August 2012. The rogue planet in question could have been as small as the Earth if it’s located in the nearby galactic disk, or as big as Neptune, if it’s further out in the galactic bulge.

As far as the researchers can tell, the planets are truly free-floating. If they are orbiting a star, they must be far away from it and it has to be quite small. Otherwise, the team would see the effects of the star. The research paper has been submitted for publication and it is now available on research repository arXiv.

In the paper, the team suggests that although only a few events like these are known, there could be a large population of small rogue planets. Otherwise, it would be quite a coincidence to have seen several of these events. They even think that there could be more Earth-mass rogue planets than stars in the Milky Way.

Several planetary system models have predicted that most rogue planets should be Earth or Super-Earth-sized, escaping the gravitational pull of their star more easily than gas giants. The Solar System might even have kicked some planets out. A gas giant could have been ejected by Jupiter billions of years ago.

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.” - Marcel Proust

For the first time, archaeologists got a clue of significant importance from the north of Luxor, a city in Upper Egypt. They have discovered evidence of a tilted ramp with two sets of steps and a large number of postholes, on either side, which could have been used to hoist blocks from a quarry, through a sled.

Construction of the Pyramids
This 4,500-year-old ramp contraption may have been used to build the Great Pyramid, known to be one of the oldest manmade structures in the world, for the pharaoh, Khufu.

It has been conjectured that with the help of workers and ropes, the wooden posts lifted the sled uphill. The ropes connected with the sled acted something like a "force multiplier," making it easier to pull the sled up the ramp.

"This system is composed of a central ramp flanked by two staircases with numerous post holes. Using a sled which carried a stone block and was attached with ropes to these wooden posts, ancient Egyptians were able to pull up the alabaster blocks out of the quarry on very steep slopes of 20 percent or more", said Yannis Gourdon, co-director of the joint mission at Hatnub.

Therefore, the researchers and scientists realized that this was a special system to move and pull the pyramid’s 2.5-ton building blocks and statues, over 800 kilometers across the desert, from Aswan in southern Egypt to Giza in the north.

Also, the workers could have probably poured a small amount of water, across the sand, to restrict the sliding friction, in order to reduce manual labor.

According to an announcement by Egypt’s Ministry of Antiquities, last week, this “unique system” was behind the mystery of the Great Pyramid that stood 139 meters tall (456 feet). This is also probably the first time that the archaeologists have discovered physical evidence of the use of a large transport system, meant for the pyramids’ construction.

The three Giza Pyramids were built for each of three pharaohs, Khufu, Khafre and Menkaure. The Great Pyramid is the largest one ever made in Egypt. For many ancient writers, this was considered as one of the wonders of the world. Almost every one of these pyramids was made of limestone, while many of the sculptures, floors, and walls were crafted from alabaster.

Gourdon also said, "This kind of system has never been discovered anywhere else. The study of the tool marks and the presence of two [of] Khufu's inscriptions led us to the conclusion that this system dates back at least to Khufu's reign, the builder of the Great Pyramid in Giza. As this system dates back at least to Khufu's reign, that means that during the time of Khufu, ancient Egyptians knew how to move huge blocks of stone using very steep slopes. Therefore, they could have used it for the construction [of] his pyramid."

Ancient Engravings Reveal Organization of Egyptian Workers
At least 100 engravings were found at the slopes, which could indicate the actual internal organization of the workers and their construction campaigns from that time. These engravings, also showing the structure of Egyptian society, were an important type of art in the ancient world.

The steps and slopes were discovered near Hatnub, the location of Egyptian alabaster quarries, which was home to the seasonal workers, in the Eastern Desert, about 65 km (40 miles) southeast of modern el-Minya.

It is believed, to date, that the reign of King Khufu in the 4th dynasty was here, which ties up nicely to the time of the Great Pyramid’s construction.

👽☀️🎶 This is amazing ! Check out the video of this within the post! ~ J . J 🎶Mars is a pretty quiet place. No birds to sing, not even the sounds of trees swaying in the wind. The few noises that are produced by rockfalls or air movements wouldn’t carry well in the minimal atmosphere. Nevertheless, scientists have whimsically created the sounds of a Martian morning by converting a photograph of a sunrise on Mars taken by the Opportunity rover into tones, and the result is surprisingly musical and pleasant.

Any digital information can be turned into sound through a process known as data sonification. Dr Domenico Vicinanza of Anglia Ruskin University and Dr Genevieve Williams of the University of Exeter applied this to Opportunity’s photograph of the 5,000th sunrise since the craft landed on the Red Planet. Each pixel becomes a sound, with the loudness and pitch reflecting the brightness and color.

Images taken on Earth could get the same treatment, but many would produce an unholy racket, with clouds and vegetation producing something too complex to be aesthetically pleasing. On Mars, however, the dark skies create a quiet harmony that slowly builds as the step from pixel to pixel approaches the Sun.

The process is a sort of artificial synaesthesia, where people experience one form of sensory input as linked to another. This, however, reverses the most common form of synaesthesia where sounds, letters, or numbers are experienced as colors. 

Williams and Vicinanza are debuting their composition at the NASA booth at the Supercomputing SC18 Conference in Dallas, Texas. Attendees of the conference will get to have the full Martian experience both through high-quality speakers and vibrational transducers, which will allow attendees to truly feel the sunrise in their bones.

For those not willing to go quite that far, the video (within post) offers a taste.

 “Image sonification is a really flexible technique to explore science and it can be used in several domains, from studying certain characteristics of planet surfaces and atmospheres, to analysing weather changes or detecting volcanic eruptions,” said Dr Vicinanza in a statement. 

It seems great minds are thinking alike, with a forthcoming paper in the Journal of the American Association of Variable Star Observers (preprint on arXiv) on the conversion of stars’ light curves into music. As their name suggests, variable stars change in brightness significantly over time. Some of these, known as Cepheid variable stars, have a period that directly relates to their intrinsic brightness, making the length of their cycle vitally important information in the quest to establish the distances to nearby galaxies.

Douglas Adams’ original Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency described a fruitless quest to turn the movements of nature into melodious sounds. It seems the answer lies elsewhere in the galaxy.
