THIS IS HOW MICROORGANISMS CAN PRODUCE RENEWABLE ENERGY FOR US
We can generate electricity from microorganisms as an alternative to the usual power from water, wind, solar or steam.
ODDLY SATISFYING METAMATERIALS STORE ENERGY IN THEIR SKIN
When you press the dimpled circles on a fountain drink lid, they become either convex or concave. Materials or structures that have two stable states demonstrate a concept called bistability.
THIS 3-D PRINTER DOESN’T GLOSS OVER THE DETAILS
Shape, color, and gloss.
STUDY SHOWS PROMISING MATERIAL CAN STORE SOLAR ENERGY FOR MONTHS OR YEARS
As we move away from fossil fuels and shift to renewable energy to tackle climate change, the need for new ways to capture and store energy becomes increasingly important.
🗞 PHYSICS NEWS⚙♨:
NEW MICROSCOPE TECHNIQUE REVEALS DETAILS OF DROPLET NUCLEATION
Nucleation is a ubiquitous phenomenon that governs the formation of both droplets and bubbles in systems used for condensation, desalination, water splitting, crystal growth, and many other important industrial processes. Now, for the first time, a new microscopy technique developed at MIT and elsewhere allows the process to be observed directly in detail, which could facilitate the design of improved, more efficient surfaces for a variety of such processes.
SUPERNOVA SURPRISE CREATES ELEMENTAL MYSTERY
Michigan State University (MSU) researchers have discovered that one of the most important reactions in the universe can get a huge and unexpected boost inside exploding stars known as supernovae.
RESEARCHERS IMPROVE THE MEASUREMENT OF A FUNDAMENTAL PHYSICAL CONSTANT
The validation and application of theories in physics require the measurement of universal values known as fundamental constants.
🗞 EARTH NEWS🌏:
CONTINENTS PRONE TO DESTRUCTION IN THEIR INFANCY, STUDY FINDS
Monash University geologists have shed new light on the early history of the Earth through their discovery that continents were weak and prone to destruction in their infancy.
‘MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE’ TRACKS PLASTIC POLLUTION
Electronic tags released in the Ganges river show plastic pollution can travel thousands of kilometres in just a few months.
2020 ONE OF THREE HOTTEST YEARS EVER RECORDED: UN
This year is on course to be one of the three warmest ever recorded, the United Nations said Wednesday, as the UN chief warned the world was on the brink of “climate catastrophe”.
🗞 ASTRONOMY & SPACE NEWS🌪🎇:
BEST REGION FOR LIFE ON MARS WAS FAR BELOW SURFACE
The most habitable region for life on Mars would have been up to several miles below its surface, likely due to subsurface melting of thick ice sheets fueled by geothermal heat, a Rutgers-led study concludes.
CHAOTIC EARLY SOLAR SYSTEM COLLISIONS RESEMBLED ‘ASTEROIDS’ ARCADE GAME
One Friday evening in 1992, a meteorite ended a more than 150 million-mile journey by smashing into the trunk of a red Chevrolet Malibu in Peekskill, New York. The car’s owner reported that the 30-pound remnant of the earliest days of our solar system was still warm and smelled of sulfur.
LAB DEVELOPING DEVICE TO HELP EARTH DODGE ASTEROIDS
In a corner of the campus at Riga Technical University, a team of scientists is working on technology that could one day stop asteroids from smashing into Earth.
🗞 NANOTECHNOLOGY NEWS⛄☃:
RESEARCHERS DEVELOP NEW CLASS OF PLANT NANOBIONIC SENSOR TO MONITOR ARSENIC LEVELS IN SOIL
Scientists from Disruptive & Sustainable Technologies for Agricultural Precision (DiSTAP), an Interdisciplinary Research Group (IRG) at the Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology (SMART), MIT’s research enterprise in Singapore, have engineered a novel type of plant nanobionic optical sensor that can detect and monitor, in real-time, levels of the highly toxic heavy metal arsenic in the belowground environment. This development provides significant advantages over conventional methods used to measure arsenic in the environment and will be important for both environmental monitoring and agricultural applications to safeguard food safety, as arsenic is a contaminant in many common agricultural products such as rice, vegetables, and tea leaves.
NEW PLATFORM GENERATES HYBRID LIGHT-MATTER EXCITATIONS IN HIGHLY CHARGED GRAPHENE
Graphene, an atomically thin carbon layer through which electrons can travel virtually unimpeded, has been extensively studied since its first successful isolation more than 15 years ago. Among its many unique properties is the ability to support highly confined electromagnetic waves coupled to oscillations of electronic charge—plasmon polaritons—that have potentially broad applications in nanotechnology, including biosensing, quantum information, and solar energy.
