Morse Code Resembling Dark Dune Patterns Discovered On Mars

Mars has been found to be home to a bizarre field of dark dunes that dissonantly resemble the dots and dashes that form Morse code. The discovery was made by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

Quasar SDSS J1011+5442 astonishes astronomers with its fast changing data

Astronomers were surprised to notice that a quite quasar named SDSS J1011+5442 changed dramatically over the last 12 years. First noticed in 2003, quasar SDSS J1011+5442 has possibly eaten out its own fill in the recent years. The research team from University of Washington used the spectrum measurements of the quasar to calculate various factors. The reading for year 2015 suggests that the hydrogen-alpha emission declined by a factor of 50.
