vatican city (ap) — the vatican is celebrating the big-bang theory. that’s not as out of this world as it sounds.the vatican observatory has invited some of the world’s leading scientists and cosmologists to talk black holes, gravitational waves and space-time singularities as it honors a jesuit cosmologist considered one of the fathers of the idea that the universe began with a gigantic explosion.the may 9-12 conference honoring monsignor george lemaitre is being held at the vatican observatory, founded by pope leo xiii in 1891 to help correct the notion that the roman catholic church was hostile to science. the perception has persisted in some circles since galileo’s heresy trial 400 years ago.the head of the observatory, brother guy consolmagno, says you can believe in both god and the

conservative us think tank heritage foundation fires leader


the heritage foundation, a leading conservative think tank that has gained influence in republican-controlled washington, fired its leader jim demint on tuesday, and sources close to the situation said the organization’s leadership determined he had veered too far from its conservative principals and too close to u.s. president donald trump’s white house.a scathing statement from thomas a. saunders iii, chairman of the heritage foundation’s board of trustees, did not go into specifics of any disagreement but did cite problems with internal communications and other “management issues.”“after a comprehensive and independent review of the entire heritage organization, the board determined there were significant and worsening management issues that led to a breakdown of internal communications

coup against jim demint threatens to tear apart heritage foundation


there are two narratives being spun about the current turmoil at the heritage foundation. last week, politico reported that the non-profit conservative foundation’s board planned to permanently oust former sen. jim demint, who was appointed president of the organization in 2013.the narrative politico offers, supported by quotes from a single anonymous board member, is that heritage is in disarray as a result of demint’s decisions since taking over several years ago. demint destroyed the organization’s brand as an esteemed think tank, prioritized politics over research, and mismanaged the institution’s assets after taking control. as a result, according to this narrative, heritage foundation’s executive committee had no choice but to remove demint pending a full meeting of the board, which

the sun's got waves — like earth's atmosphere


most of the time, the sun and the earth couldn't be more different: one is a star, the other a planet; the sun is made of plasma and fuses hydrogen to helium, while the earth is a solid body heated by radioactive decay (and the sun's rays). but the two bodies' atmospheres share something in common: a type of wave that undulates through earth's skies may have an analogue in the body of the sun, according to a new study.  nasa's solar dynamics observatory (sdo) and solar terrestrial relations observatory (stereo) mission, which included two spacecraft orbiting the sun, spotted a type of wave called a rossby wave on the sun's surface. this type of wave occurs in rotating fluids, such as atmospheres and oceans. the findings could help link several phenomena tied to the sun's magnetic field, su
