Scientists have used a powerful radio telescope to detect the remnants of a supernova explosion that took place 9,000 years ago.Read more from ABC News
Of the strange and unexplained terrains in our solar system, the south pole of Saturn's moon Enceladus is among the most perplexing. Enceladus is an ocean world, with a vast and briny sea tucked beneath its icy crust; this makes it one of the most tantalizing places in the solar system to look for life beyond Earth. But unlike other frozen moons, Enceladus constantly erupts. The tiny world blasts...Read more from Google News

I'm very suspicious - pretty much every "breakthrough" claimed by Israel turns out to be iffy or indeed false. Some look like boondoggles.
... if all three objects are of a comparable size and distance from the center point, a power struggle develops and the whole system is thrown into chaos. When chaos happens, it becomes impossible to track the bodies' movements using regular math. Enter the three-body problem.
Now, an international team, led by astrophysicist Dr. Nicholas Stone at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem's Racah Institute of Physics, has taken a big step forward in solving this conundrum. Their findings were published in the latest edition of Nature.
Stone and Professor Nathan Leigh at Chile's La Universidad de Concepción relied on discoveries from the past two centuries ... expel one of the trio
Why announce and link a non-discovery to Israel when its not even an Israeli project?
... the researchers used traditional mathematics to predict the planets' movements. "When we compared our predictions to computer-generated models of their actual movements, we found a high degree of accuracy," shared Stone.
That's gobbldygook. One less than rigorous model matches sort-of matches another less than rigorous model? Gee.
... statistical solutions are still extremely helpful in that they allow physicists to visualize complicated processes.
It has a name:
In quantum mechanics, the uncertainty principle (also known as Heisenberg's uncertainty principle) is any of a variety of mathematical inequalities asserting a fundamental limit to the precision with which certain pairs of physical properties of a particle, known as complementary variables or canonically conjugate ...

"Take three black holes ... even after one of them gets kicked out" explained Stone. This ability to predict new orbits is critical to our understanding of how these—and any three-body problem survivors—will behave in a newly-stable situation.
More gobbldygook, at least in the form its written!
Just out of curiosity, would you have pounced on this if it came out of a University in New jersey?
