GBT Detection Unlocks Exploration of ‘Aromatic’ Interstellar Chemistry

Astronomers using the Green Bank Telescope have made the first definitive interstellar detection of benzonitrile, an intriguing organic molecule that helps to chemically link simple carbon-based molecules and truly massive ones known as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. This discovery is a vital clue in a 30-year-old mystery: identifying the source of a faint infrared glow that permeates the Milky Way and other galaxies.

Using two of the world’s largest radio telescopes, an international team of astronomers has gained new insights into the extreme home of a mysterious source of cosmic radio bursts. The discovery suggests that the source of the radio emission lies near a massive black hole or within an extremely powerful nebula, and may help shed light on what is causing these strange bursts.

New ACR Appropriateness Criteria Patient Summaries May Be First-of-Its-Kind Step to More Patient-Centered Care

New Appropriateness Criteria Patient Summaries can help patients understand which imaging tests are best for their condition or why they may not need a scan at all. The first item in this first-of-its kind series created by patients for patients in everyday language are now published online in JACR.

The new study shows that locations that experienced earthquakes are tied in proximity and timeliness to mass waste water injection sites. Further, the study indicates that tracking annual data on the injection well locations can help predict how corresponding earthquake activity will change. This new finding builds on previous studies showing that earthquake activity increases when wastewater injections increase.
