43% of heterosexual men have a hard time identifying a female orgasm | Big Think
43% of heterosexual men have a hard time identifying a female orgasm July 17, 2018 at 03:06PM

Orgasms! Enjoyed alone or with a friend, everybody loves them, and have done for centuries. Whatsmore, orgasms are whole-brain events with verifiable healing qualities. But it would appear that according to a recent study 43% of heterosexual men don't know one when they see it. 

Amongst the many findings in a wide-ranging study (available here) by Brigham Young University, 43% of husbands in a 1,683 person study group of heterosexual newlywed couples misreported whether their wife had an orgasm. In simpler terms, that means that close to half of the men in the study had no idea whether or not their partner had experienced an orgasm.

49% of the women surveyed said they experience orgasms between 80%-100% of the time, which is just over half the percentage of men that orgasm. 87% of the men polled said they "almost always" orgasm between 80%-100% of the time. Yet this does nothing for the overall improvement of the relationship. Per the study:

One of the biggest takeaways from the study is that wives’orgasm appears to have a unique positive association with sexual satisfaction, even after taking into account other aspects of the orgasm experience and sexual communication, as wives’ self-reported orgasm was linked  with  their own  sexual  satisfaction,  and  husbands’ perceiving their wives to be orgasmic reported higher sexual satisfaction. This study is not suggesting that husbands’ orgasms are not important, rather they are ubiquitous. 

Men did appear to overvalue their ability to create female orgasm, which is perhaps why this 43% of the men misjudged. In the words of the study itself: "with only 49% of wives being consistently orgasmic, this study provides evidence that attentiveness to the wife’s orgasm experience may promote greater sexual satisfaction for both husbands and wives."

Ultimately, the study is about sexual communication and how that can benefit the relationship. If you're a selfish lover, perhaps it's time to reach out and ask your partner what they want. Because you don't want to fall into the 43% of dudes who aren't asking or aren't paying enough attention. Don't try too hard, have fun, and be yourself.

12 new moons discovered around Jupiter; one of them could spell trouble. July 17, 2018 at 01:13PM

12 new moons have been discovered orbiting the planet Jupiter. They were not known until discovered via the 6.5 meter Magellan Telescopes. The data captured therein took a year to study, but was just confirmed. 

“It takes several observations to confirm an object actually orbits around Jupiter. So, the whole process took a year,” said Gareth Williams of the International Astronomical Union’s Minor Planet Center.

Of the initial 4 “Galilean” moons (so-called because they were first discovered by Galileo himself, in 1610), which circle Jupiter in counterclockwise fashion when seen in the video below (orbiting the same direction as the planet itself spins, known as "Prograde" orbits). Two new ones have been added to those, going the same direction. Because these all have similar orbital distances and angles of inclination around the planet Jupiter, they’re thought by scientists to be fragments of a larger moon that was broken apart, likely by another orbiting moon going the opposite direction. Of the remaining 9 moons, 8 of them are in orbit further out, and they’re orbiting in “Retrograde” or clockwise orbit when seen in the below video. In other words, the opposite direction from that of the planet’s spin. 

The final moon, proposed to be called Valetudo, (after the Roman god Jupiter’s great granddaughter) also orbits Jupiter in a “prograde” fashion, which means it’s orbiting in a reverse direction from the Galilean moons. In addition, its orbit crosses the newly-discovered retrograde-orbit moons. It’s only 1 kilometer in size, which indicates it once was much larger, and collided with others over time.

Valeted crosses orbits with some of the retrograde-orbiting moons, and has likely, or will likely, crash into one or more of them, eventually. 

“This is an unstable situation,” said Scott S. Sheppard, who helped lead the team, told The Independent. “Head-on collisions would quickly break apart and grind the objects down to dust.”

All of the new moons are less than 2 miles (3.2 km) wide, which explains why it’s been so difficult to spot them until much more sensitive telescope equipment was deployed. 

The discovery brings the total number of objects orbiting the planet, both prograde and retrograde, to 79 — the most of any planet in our solar system.

MeerKAT radio telescope shows the center of the Milky Way in fiery detail | Big Think
A new telescope shows the center of the Milky Way in dazzling, fiery detail July 16, 2018 at 05:19PM

There is a new radio telescope up and running now, based in Karoo, South Africa. The MeerKAT (Karoo Array Telescope), as it’s named, operated by the South African Radio Astronomy Observatory, is already producing brilliant images of the super massive black hole that is at our galaxy’s center, 25,000 light years away.

Because that center is obscured from view by traditional methods of observation, since it’s behind the constellation Sagittarius, clouds of gas and dust make it invisible from Earth using traditional telescopes. However, radio wavelengths penetrate the obscuring dust and open a window into this distinctive region and its black hole.  

Taken by MeerKAT, this shot shows a 1,000 x 500 light-year area of the center of the Milky Way. The brighter the spot, the more intense the radio signal. Image by Square Kilometer Array, South Africa.

The “filaments” that you see in the image above are not yet fully understood, after being first discovered in the 1980s, but they only exist near that central black hole. The other objects are remnants of supernovae and star-forming regions, near dead center of the Milky Way.

“We wanted to show the science capabilities of this new instrument”, said Fernando Camilo, chief scientist of the South African Radio Astronomy Observatory (SARAO), which built and operates MeerKAT in the Karoo region of the Northern Cape of South Africa. “The center of the galaxy was an obvious target: unique, visually striking and full of unexplained phenomena – but also notoriously hard to image using radio telescopes.”

"Although it’s early days with MeerKAT, and a lot remains to be optimized, we decided to go for it – and were stunned by the results,” Camilo continued.

This is not the first image by MeerKAT; it captured an image 2 years ago of an area that scientists previously thought only held about 70 galaxies; MeerKAT captured over 1300.
