WHO: 121 killed, 561 wounded in Libyan fighting over 10 days

World
April 14 (UPI) -- Since a Libyan military commander launched an assault to take over Tripoli, the capital, 10 days ago, 121 people have died and 561were wounded, the World Health Organization said Sunday. WHO's Libya Twitter account posted an update of "casualties" and said it was "sending medical supplies, health staff support for first- and second-line responders." Eight ambulances have been bombed, including two on Saturday, since the outbreak of violence on April 4 launched by strongman Khalifa Haftar. "The World Health Organization strongly condemns repeated attacks on healthcare workers, vehicles and facilities," WHO tweeted.' More than 13,500 people had been displaced by the clashes, including 4,000 in the past 24 hours, and more than 900 residents are living in shelters, the U.N...

Physicists replicate earliest days of the universe in super-chilled helium

Physicists replicate earliest days of the universe in super-chilled helium

Science
Jan. 16 (UPI) -- Scientists have for the first time triggered quantum structures long-predicted by cosmologists. Researchers at Aalto University in Denmark observed "walls bound by strings" in superfluid helium-3. The breakthrough could allows scientists to better understand what the universe looked like in its earliest days, as it quickly cooled in the wake of the Big Bang. Helium is unique in it's ability to remain a fluid even at cryogenic temperatures. When supercooled, helium becomes a superfluid, which means it boasts zero viscosity. Superfluids can flow forever without losing energy. When trapped inside a nanostructure, superfluid phases of the isotope helium-3 can help scientists study unusual quantum structures called half-quantum vortices. The movement of helium inside these vor...
