How Babies' Brains Process Touch Builds Foundations for Learning

Touch is the first of the five senses to develop, yet scientists know far less about the baby’s brain response to touch than to, say, the sight of mom’s face, or the sound of her voice.

What can you do with a team of people armed with backyard telescopes and a decade of patience? Test how binary star systems evolve under Einstein’s general theory of relativity!

Cataclysmic variables — irregularly brightening binary stars consisting of an accreting white dwarf and a donor star — are a favorite target among amateur astronomers: they’re detectable even with small telescopes, and there’s a lot we can learn about stellar astrophysics by observing them, if we’re patient.

Among the large family of cataclysmic variables is one unusual type: the extremely short-period AM Canum Venaticorum (AM CVn) stars. These rare variables (only ~40 are known) are unique in having spectra dominated by helium, suggesting that they contain little or no hydrogen. Because of this, scientists have speculated that the donor stars in these systems are either white dwarfs themselves or very low-mass helium stars.

Why study AM CVn stars? Because their unusual configuration allows us to predict the behavior of their orbital evolution. According to the general theory of relativity, the two components of an AM CVn will spiral closer and closer as the system loses angular momentum to gravitational-wave emission. Eventually they will get so close that the low-mass companion star overflows its Roche lobe, beginning mass transfer to the white dwarf. At this point, the orbital evolution will reverse and the binary orbit will expand, increasing its period.

I'm glad Google's finally forging their own identity and aesthetic with Pixel hardware.

Even though, personally, I'm not a big fan of Google's current two-tone back panel design; I just think it looks very toy-like — But I am definitely starting to see where Google's headed with their industrial design.

This is a step in the right direction; brand consistency is key to a successful consumer product. Let's just hope they stick with this philosophy.

P.S. Anyone like that prototype of the Pixel 2 XL third from the left? Man, that looks gorgeous!
