Microscopic 'timers' reveal likely source of cosmic rays

Washington D. C, Apr 24 - Microscopic "timers" have revealed the likely source of galactic radiation that we detect at Earth.

Most of the cosmic rays originated relatively recently in the nearby clusters of massive stars, according to new results from NASA's Advanced Composition Explorer (ACE) spacecraft.

ACE allowed the research team to determine the source of these cosmic rays by making the first observations of a very rare type of cosmic ray that acts like a tiny timer, limiting the distance the source can be from Earth.

"Before the ACE observations, we didn't know if this radiation was created a long time ago and far, far away, or relatively recently and nearby," said co-author Eric Christian.

Leader's electability depends on his face, voter's culture

Washington D.C, Apr 24 - According to recent study, a winning face actually depends on the culture of the voter.

In the study of elections comparing candidate faces in the U.S. and Taiwan, researchers showed that in winning an actual election, perceived competence plays a more important role for candidates in the U.S. than for those in Taiwan.

In contrast, perceived social competence was more vital for candidates in Taiwan than for those in the U.S.

For the study, participants in the U.S. and Taiwan were presented with pairs of faces of competing political candidates who were running against each other. The faces were randomly selected from an image pool of U.S. political candidates (U.S. Senate) and Taiwanese political candidates (Taiwan Legislative Yuan) in past elections.
