first_imgRemains of a child found Sunday in Kotlik are believed to be that of a boy who went missing there last year, according to Alaska State Troopers.Troopers spokesperson, Megan Peters says just before midnight Sunday, Troopers from Emmonak were notified that human remains were found in a large hole in Kotlik that is always filled with water.“Right now it appears that the remains that were found are that of a small boy named Terrell Hunt who went missing last May. Unfortunately hey were not able to find him and after search efforts went on. That is a tentative ID at this point but with everything that we know about this case, it appears that it is Terrell Hunt,” said Peters.On May 20th of last year the boy was reported missing in the village. An organized search was conducted for two weeks with no results. Local residents continued to search until the river became frozen this winter.Troopers responded to the scene Monday, where their investigation revealed that the remains were consistent with that of the missing child, including clothing the child was wearing. The water is being drained from the large hole using pumps, to recover additional clothing.The remains were sent to Anchorage to the State Medical Examiner’s Office for an autopsy and positive identification. Troopers have notified the boy’s family.last_img

Le mystère de la matière noire sobscurcit

first_imgLe mystère de la matière noire s’obscurcitJusqu’ici les scientifiques considéraient le voisinage du Soleil comme rempli de matière noire. Mais une nouvelle étude indique que les observations faites ne concordent pas avec cette théorie. Du coup, détecter des particules de matière noire depuis la Terre pourrait bien se solder par un échec, selon les spécialistes.Selon la théorie largement acceptée, le voisinage du Soleil était supposé être rempli de matière noire. Cette mystérieuse substance invisible qui ne peut être détectée que de manière indirecte, était repérable grâce à la force gravitationnelle qu’elle exerce. Cependant, une nouvelle étude menée par une équipe d’astronomes au Chili a trouvé que cette théorie ne tenait pas la route. Les astronomes ont utilisé le télescope MPG/ESO de 2,2 mètres à l’Observatoire de La Silla de l’ESO, ainsi que d’autres télescopes. Ils ont ainsi cartographié les mouvements de plus de 400 étoiles situées jusqu’à 13.000 années-lumière du Soleil. A partir de ces nouvelles données, ces scientifiques ont calculé la masse de matière aux alentours du Soleil, dans un volume quatre fois plus grand que ce qui avait été pris en compte dans les études antérieures. “La quantité de masse que nous avons déduite correspond très bien à ce que nous voyons [les étoiles, la poussière et le gaz] dans la région autour du Soleil”,  explique le responsable de l’équipe, Christian Moni Bidin. “Mais cela ne laisse aucune place pour la matière supplémentaire [la matière noire] que nous pensions trouver. Nos calculs montrent qu’elle aurait dû clairement ressortir dans nos mesures. Mais elle n’est pas là !”Si aujourd’hui, il est communément admis que cette matière noire constitue environ 80% de la masse de l’Univers, nous n’avons toujours pas réussi à comprendre sa nature. De plus, les modèles astronomiques existants montrent comment les galaxies se forment et tournent en supposant que la Voie Lactée est entourée par un halo de matière noire. Or, ces modèles ne sont pas capables de prédire précisément la forme de ce halo, qu’ils supposaient se situer dans le voisinage du Soleil. La détection de matière noire vouée à l’échec ? À lire aussiBoisson, météorite et Facebook, les actus sciences que vous devez connaître ce 5 septembreAinsi, pour pouvoir expliquer l’absence de matière noire révélée dans cette nouvelle étude, il faudrait supposer que le halo de matière noire a une forme vraiment peu probable, par exemple une forme extrêmement allongée, rapporte le site de l’Observatoire européen austral. Les nouveaux résultats signifient également que les tentatives pour détecter de la matière noire depuis la Terre en essayant de repérer de rares interactions entre les particules de matière noire et la matière normale risquent très probablement de n’apporter aucun résultat.”Malgré les nouveaux résultats, la Voie Lactée doit certainement tourner beaucoup plus vite que ce que l’on peut expliquer avec la seule matière visible. Aussi, si la matière noire n’est pas présente là où on l’attend, une nouvelle explication au problème de la masse manquante doit être trouvée. Nos résultats contredisent les modèles en vigueur. Le mystère de la matière noire en devient juste encore plus mystérieux. De prochains sondages, tels que ceux de la mission Gaia de l’ESA, seront cruciaux pour avancer au-delà de ce point”, conclut ainsi Christian Moni Bidin.Le 20 avril 2012 à 13:52 • Maxime Lambertlast_img

Chris Katra, Cpl. Sean McGillicuddy and Deputy Kevin Nulton responded to that address around 2:50 p.m. following reports that a man was screaming, talking about killing himself and others, and throwing items, according to a letter prepared by District Attorney Summer Stephan and addressed to San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore.Body camera footage from two of the lawmen was also released by the D.A.’s office.As the deputies approached the front door of Ayala’s unit and knocked, announcing “Sheriff’s Department” three times, Ayala opened the door, said “What’s up!” and jabbed a knife twice through his metal screen door, the body-worn camera footage shows.The deputies backed up from the door as Nulton alerted the others by saying “Knife, knife, knife.”Ayala then opened the screen door and advanced towards the lawmen, who opened fire, striking him mostly in the upper body, according to Stephan’s letter.Ayala died at the scene. His 5-year-old son was inside the apartment during the entire encounter, but was physically unharmed, according to the district attorney.Toxicology results showed Ayala had methamphetamine, heroin, cannabis and alcohol in his system.Stephan’s letter concludes that the deputies “were in a confined space when Ayala advanced on them quickly with a knife in his hand.” The letter also notes Ayala’s previously reported statements about killing people.“The deputies had no other option available to them as they Ayala could stab them immediately and seriously injure or kill them,” the letter reads.Katra has been employed by the San Diego Sheriff’s Department for 18 years, McGillicuddy for 12 years and Nulton for 10 years.
