We've all heard about the search for life on other planets, but what about looking on other moons? In a paper published June 13 in The Astrophysical Journal, researchers at the University of California, Riverside and the University of...
Strong monsoons in the Indian Ocean can induce easterly winds that push Atlantic Ocean hurricanes westward, increasing the likelihood they'll make landfall in the Americas, according to new research. A new study finds that in years where summer rainstorms...
Aerial migration is the fastest, yet most energetically demanding way of seasonal movements between habitats. A new study led by scientists at the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research (Leibniz-IZW) investigated the energy requirements and travel speeds...
Ecologists from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in the US and the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) studied a population of black-browed albatross at Kerguelen Island, part of the French Southern and Antarctic Lands, where 200 breeding...
Scientists have completed the first comprehensive assessment of UV-filters in surface seawater, sediment, and coral tissue from multiple coral reefs around the island of Oahu, Hawaii. UV-filters are active ingredients in sunscreens, but are also added to many...
Chemists from the University of Waterloo have successfully resolved two of the most challenging issues surrounding lithium-oxygen batteries, and in the process created a working battery with near 100 per cent coulombic efficiency. The new work, which appears this...
Uppsala University researchers have devised a new model for the Universe -- one that may solve the enigma of dark energy. Their new article, published in Physical Review Letters, proposes a new structural concept, including dark energy, for...
NASA is taking a different approach. On April 16, they are planning to launch TESS, the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite, which costed $337 million. Forget exploring the solar system, finding distant galaxies, and even interstellar travel. If you're an astronomer on...
United Launch Alliance’s Atlas V has launched on her seventy-fifth flight, lofting the SBIRS GEO-4, a missile early warning satellite. Mission Description: SBIRS, considered one of the nation’s highest priority space programs, is designed to provide global, persistent, infrared surveillance...
Scientists have determined the DNA code of the opium poppy genome, uncovering key steps in how the plant evolved to produce the pharmaceutical compounds used to make vital medicines. The discovery may pave the way for scientists to improve...
