What does flying in a commercial airliner have in common with working at the office or relaxing at home? According to a new study, the answer is the microbiome -- the community of bacteria found in homes, offices and...
When we look at the surface of the Sun the solar prominences are seen as dark filaments that populate the disk or as a blaze of plasma above it. Solar prominences are very dense plasma structures that levitate...
Neutron stars (often called pulsars) are stellar remnants that have reached the end of their evolutionary life: they result from the death of a star of between 10 and 30 Solar masses. Despite their small size (about 20...
In astronomical terms, at 600 light years away, the nebula around R Aquarii is rather close to us. The symbiotic star itself is made up of a red giant and a white dwarf which have interacted over centuries...
The use of particle accelerators is not confined to basic research in high-energy physics. Large-scale accelerators and gigantic devices, such as the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), are used for this purpose, but relatively small accelerators are used in...
As the 150th anniversary of the formulation of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements looms, a Michigan State University professor probes the table's limits in a recent Nature Physics Perspective. Next year will mark the 150th anniversary of the...
Scientists led by Rice University and Los Alamos National Laboratory have discovered electronic properties in quantum-scale devices that are likely to impact the growing field of low-cost perovskite based optoelectronics. In an open-access Nature Communications paper, researchers led by...
The Visual Perception and Cognition Laboratory research team at the Toyohashi University of Technology has uncovered a material perception mechanism with which humans discriminate between reflective and transparent materials (mirror and glass). The research team discovered that the...
A KAIST research team has proposed a perovskite material, Cs2Au2I6 that serves as a potential active material for highly efficient lead-free thin-film photovoltaic devices. This material is expected to lay the foundation to overcome previously known limitations of...
In partnership with several institutes across Japan, scientists at Nara Institute of Science and Technology, Nara, Japan, report a new microscopy system that visualizes the production of metabolites in living cells. Fluorogenic aptamers that fluoresce when bound to...
