The so called Peter Pan galaxies are young, compact radio galaxies which produce powerful jets of radio energy shooting out from their galactic cores like lighthouse beacons. *New portal to unveil the dark sector of the universe Scientists are developing a new portal to unveil a mysterious dark sector of the universe. However, they’re still struggling to detect the hidden particles beyond the standard model – particles that constitute a dark sector of the Universe. *Martian volcanoes were still active when Earth’s dinosaurs went extinct. There’s growing evidence that far from being a cold dead world Mars was still geologically alive until very recently. The new findings indicate volcanoes were still erupting on the red planet‘s surface as recently as 50 million years ago. *China launches new rocket China has successfully launched a new rocket. The new launch vehicle is based on Beijing’s existing Dong Feng 31 intercontinental ballistic missile with its usual one megaton thermonuclear warhead replaced with a satellite payload.
