Sep. 15, 2016 — If you bottle up a gas and try to image its atoms using today's most powerful microscopes, you will see little more than a shadowy blur. Atoms zip around at lightning speeds and are difficult to ... read more

Sep. 15, 2016 — Researchers have observed quantum effects in electrons by squeezing them into one-dimensional 'quantum wires' and observing the interactions between them. The results could be used to aid ... read more

Food Waste Could Store Solar, Wind Energy

Sep. 15, 2016 — Saving up excess solar and wind energy for times when the sun is down or the air is still requires a storage device. Batteries get the most attention as a promising solution although pumped ... read more

Sep. 15, 2016 — By coating tiny gel beads with lung-derived stem cells and then allowing them to self-assemble into the shapes of the air sacs found in human lungs, researchers have succeeded in creating ... read more

Sep. 15, 2016 — Cislunar Explorers, a team of Cornell University students guided by Mason Peck, a former senior official at NASA and associate professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering, is attempting to ... read more

Sep. 14, 2016 — Scientists using NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory have made the first detections of X-rays from Pluto. These observations offer new insight into the space environment surrounding the largest and ... read more

Sep. 13, 2016 — Engineers have happened upon a way to stop the movement of the colorful eddies on the surface of soap bubbles. The results are works of art that could lead to stable engineered foams for medical ... read more

Sep. 13, 2016 — Fabrics that can generate electricity from physical movement have been in the works for a few years. Now researchers have taken the next step, developing a fabric that can simultaneously harvest ... read more

Sep. 13, 2016 — By leveraging molecular beam epitaxy deposition and high-quality materials with large dielectric constants, researchers pursue future radio-frequency materials and devices capable of being ... read more

Sep. 12, 2016 — Scientists can explain why the universe has enough energy to become transparent. The study marks the first quantitative study of how the gas content within galaxies scales with the amount of ... read more

Sep. 12, 2016 — It is the double helix, with its stable and flexible structure of genetic information, that made life on Earth possible in the first place. Now a team has discovered a double helix structure in an ... read more

Sep. 9, 2016 — Scientists have harnessed a scanning transmission electron microscope (STEM) to directly write tiny patterns in metallic 'ink,' forming features in liquid that are finer than half the width ... read more

Sep. 9, 2016 — Physicists have discovered that self-focused laser pulses generate violent swirls of optical energy that resemble smoke rings. In these light structures, known as 'spatiotemporal optical ... read more

Sep. 9, 2016 — Researchers have made a breakthrough in controlling the motion of multiple objects on a vibrating plate with a single acoustic source. By playing carefully constructed melodies, the scientists can ... read more

Sep. 7, 2016 — Computer simulations of a spherical collection of stars known as 'NGC 6101' reveal that it contains hundreds of black holes, until now thought impossible. Recent observations already found ... read more

Sep. 7, 2016 — Dwarf galaxies are enigmas wrapped in riddles. Although they are the smallest galaxies, they represent some of the biggest mysteries about our universe. While many dwarf galaxies surround our own ... read more

Sep. 7, 2016 — Researchers have discovered how to create the smallest ever water and gas pipes that are only one atom in ... read more

Team of Robots Learns to Work Together, Without Colliding

Sep. 7, 2016 — When you have too many robots together, they get so focused on not colliding with each other that they eventually just stop moving. Georgia Tech's new algorithms are different: they allow any ... read more

Sep. 7, 2016 — Our intuition tells us that a sample of material compressed uniformly from all sides should reduce its dimensions. Only a few materials subjected to hydrostatic compression exhibit the opposite ... read more

Sep. 7, 2016 — A fossilized remnant of the early Milky Way harboring stars of hugely different ages has been revealed by an international team of astronomers. This stellar system resembles a globular cluster, but ... read more
