Engineers at University of Tokyo have created tiny lights that can levitate using ultrasonic waves. Named Luciola for its resemblance to the firefly, the particle weighs 16.2 mg, has a diameter of 3.5 mm, and glows red – bright enough to illuminate text.
Seven Earth-size planets that could potentially harbor life have been spotted orbiting a dim dwarf star called Trappist-1, which is located at 39 light-years away in the constellation Aquarius.
