Through a supercomputer-simulated study, astronomers at Lund University in Sweden show that it is highly likely that the so-called Planet 9 is an exoplanet. This would make it the first exoplanet to be discovered inside our own solar system. The theory is that our sun, in its youth some 4.5 billion years ago, stole Planet 9 from its original star. Listen to Alexander Mustill as he explains! An exo...

Garbage, nutrients and tiny animals are pushed around, suspended in the world’s oceans by waves invisible to the naked eye according to a new 3-D model developed by mathematicians at the University of Waterloo. David Deepwell, a graduate student, and Professor Marek Stastna in Waterloo’s Faculty of Math have created a 3-D simulation that showcases how materials such phytoplankton, contaminants, an...
