With the help of artificial intelligence applied to data from NASA's Kepler Space Telescope, scientists have discovered the eighth planet orbiting Kepler-90, a Sun-like star located 2,545 light-years from Earth in the constellation Draco. The discovery of the planet, dubbed Kepler-90i, is significant as it has helped the Kepler-90 system to tie with our solar system in a number of planets for the first time.
Researchers are working on some kind of a smart material that could be fitted into future vehicles to help them sense damage, similar to how nerves tell the body that it has been injured. The new research, conducted by scientists at Clemson University and funded by the US Army Research Laboratory, revolves around the idea that magnetically sensitive material would be embedded within several layers of composite materials throughout the vehicle.
Where do the molecules, considered to be the building blocks of life, come from? Do they originate in space? A new study, published in the Journal of Chemical Physics, shows that a number of small organic molecules can indeed form in a cold, space-like environment full of radiation. As part of the research, scientists at the University of Sherbrooke in Canada created simulated space environments, and prompted chemical reactions that resulted in the building blocks of early organisms.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
