Rare metallic asteroids might have erupted molten iron

Metal-rich asteroids are thought to have formed when primordial planetesimals collided, stripping away much of the outer material and leaving behind the inner metallic cores, which then cooled and solidified from the outside-in.

Rostock scientists achieve breakthrough in quantum physics

Quantum physics is the comprehensive theory of microphysical reality that has had a consequential impact on scientific thought for over one hundred years. A mathematical reformulation thus far considered purely theoretical has now been experimentally proven by two young scientists from the University of Rostock, as Nature Photonics recently reported.
