The Nanohertz Gravitational-Wave Detection Explained

In a special feature, Jorge Cham, also known as PHD Comics, uncovers how scientists have transformed our Galaxy into a massive antenna capable of detecting gravitational waves. This groundbreaking achievement has led to the identification of a background hum of these waves, a discovery made for the first time. Cham also highlights an intriguing phenomenon involving a zigzag pattern that spontaneously forms in collections of magnetic particles and other colloids, which is explained by fluid flow. Additionally, the Muon g-2 Collaboration has achieved greater precision in measuring the muon’s magnetic moment, revealing a discrepancy with predictions based on the standard model. Furthermore, an artificial intelligence algorithm has been developed that can model the behavior of various objects, even those it hasn’t analyzed before.
