Hidden gestures you didn'tMany people who use Google services have more than one account, which means they always have to pay attention and use certain apps with specific accounts. The easiest example is using Gmail for work.... If the company you work for gives you a Gmail-based email account, then you probably switch between personal and work Gmail quite a lot. And the same goes for all the other Google services that are associated with each account. Thankfully, Google devised an easy way to move between accounts that's available both on Android and iPhone, and you might not even have realized that you can already take advantage of it. The way most people move between their Google accounts is simple enough. You tap on the avatar image and chose the correct account from the drop-down menu. But there's no point in...

Cyberattacks force LouisianaRansomware and cyberattacks continue to multiply and hit local governments in a scary, escalating pattern such that, now for the second time since 2018, a governor has formally declared a state of... emergency because of it. Back in February 2018, it was Colorado's governor after the Colorado Department of Transportation had to shut down operations because of a SamSam ransomware attack. This time, Louisiana's Gov. Jon Bel Edwards has made the declaration after multiple school districts in the state have been hit by a wave of cyberattacks. Three North Louisiana parishes (Sabine, Morehouse, and Ouachita) have reportedly been hit, with the attacks knocking out IT networks and encrypting files, rendering them inaccessible. Because a state of emergency has been declared there, federal law...

Russia launches test of newAll eyes were on the International Space Station yesterday as NASA astronauts performed a spacewalk to install a new docking port that will allow commercial vehicles to latch onto the orbiting... laboratory. Meanwhile, Russia was preparing for some serious work of its own, carrying out a crucial test of its new rocket booster which is expected to replace the stalwart Soyuz-FG rocket sometime in 2020. That mission kicked off at 8:38 a.m. local time from Russia's launchpad in Kazakhstan, successfully sending an uncrewed Soyuz capsule skyward on a path toward the International Space Station. The vehicle was empty of any human travelers, but it did have one inhabitant: a humanoid robot strapped into the commander's seat. The robot is called Fedor, which is actually short for 'Final Experimental...

Baby Jupiter was smacked by aJupiter has long been hailed as the mighty "king of planets" thanks to its massive size compared to most of the other planets in our solar system. It's huge, and it's mostly made of gas, making it... difficult for scientists to know what lies deep beneath its thick cloud cover. NASA's Juno spacecraft has been studying the planet in detail for over eight years now, and it's returned some surprising observations about the planet's core. Now, a new study from an international team of researchers may offer an explanation. Scans from NASA's Juno spacecraft have hinted that Jupiter's core isn't exactly what scientists once thought it was. The core isn't as dense as researchers suspected, but determining why that is has proven to be a challenge. "This is puzzling," Andrea Isella, co-author of a new...

Neutron star 'glitch' offersStudying distant objects in space can be tricky for astronomers, especially when those objects begin to do unexpected -- and unexplainable -- things. Neutron stars are thought to be the most dense... objects in space, and scientists have a pretty good handle on how they form. However, the tendency of some neutron stars to "glitch," or behave erratically, has left astronomers scratching their heads. Now, a new study published in Nature Astronomy takes a close look at observations of a distant neutron star called the Vela Pulsar and offers an explanation for its own peculiar behavior while helping to explain the inner workings of these interesting objects. Neutron stars are typically consistent in their rotation, spinning very fast at a constant rate. However, when the stars glitch, they begin...

NASA's space-worthy nuclearToday, scientists dream of one day building settlements on the Moon and even Mars, where research can be conducted and human travelers can live safely for months or years. Making that dream a reality... is going to take a lot of work, and one of the most pressing concerns is power. The Department of Energy and NASA think that nuclear power may be the way to go, and a prototype fission reactor has already shown promise in tests here on Earth. Now, as Space.com reports, the DOE believes that it could have a flight-worthy version of the reactor ready to go as soon as 2022, which is far sooner than NASA will be ready to send humans to the Moon, let alone Mars. "I think we could do this in three years and be ready for flight," Patrick McClure, lead of the Kilopower project, reportedly said during...

Security researcher demos aAs far as iPhone and Mac hacks are concerned, a California-based security researcher who goes by the name MG recently came up with one of the more clever and intriguing workarounds we've seen to date.... Whereas most exploits that make the news tend to rely on unsuspecting users clicking on a malicious link or website, MG developed a way to hijack a user's computer via the lightning cable used to charge iOS devices. Originally brought to light via Motherboard, MG's hack is seemingly simple and can be explored in-depth on his blog here. Put simply, he delicately tears open a standard lightning cable, modifies it with custom components, and puts it back together. By all accounts, the modified lightning cable looks and performs exactly like one you'd pick up from an Apple retail store. MG...

Astronomers just found a blackAt the heart of our home galaxy is a supermassive black hole that gobbles up anything that gets too close. It's huge, with a mass of 4 million times that of our Sun, but size is a relative thing when... we're talking about the universe, and astronomers just spotted a black hole in a distant galaxy that puts ours to shame. The galaxy, Holm 15A, sits around 700 million light-years away, making it somewhat difficult to study in detail, but what scientists know for sure is that the black hole in its heart is the largest ever discovered. In fact, researchers believe the black hole in Holm 15A is at least 10,000 times as massive as our home galaxy's black hole. In a new research paper, scientists led by Kianusch Mehrgan of the Max Planck Institute reveal that the black hole in Holm 15A is up to...
