University of Adelaide researchers have developed a new nanomaterial that could help reduce carbon dioxide emissions from coal-fired power stations.
Nanomaterial developed could help reduce (by separating and storing) CO2 from emissions. Great STOP-GAP tech - emphasis, from the team leader, on stop-gap and as an aid to the transition to the market of green energy!
Most of the matter in the universe may be made out of particles that possess an unusual, donut-shaped electromagnetic field called an anapole. This proposal, which endows dark matter particles with a rare form of electromagnetism, has been strengthened by a detailed analysis performed by a pair of theoretical physicists at Vanderbilt University: Professor Robert Scherrer and post-doctoral fellow Chiu Man Ho. An article about the research was published online last month by the journal Physics Letters B.
“There are a great many different theories about the nature of dark matter. What I like about this theory is its simplicity, uniqueness and the fact that it can be tested,” said Scherrer.
Three Places where the Earth Microbiome Project is mapping how small things shape big ecosystems.
The Earth Microbiome Project is enormous project to understand the world's microbes and how they support life. If your consider that every GRAM of soil has up to 100 terabytes of genetic data... it's never ending?!
The final plan? A "gene atlas" to understand how the nurtients and microbes exist in the ecosystem. Outstanding work.
The Development Policy and Analysis Division - or DPAD - is the main development research division of the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs.
The World Economic and Social Survey of the UN's Division on Development Policy and Analysis Division highlights the need for solid sustainable development challenges to tackle the impact of rapid urbanization around the world. The Survey highlights three issues: food security, energy transformation and sustainable cities.
Researchers at UC Santa Barbara, in collaboration with University of Notre Dame, have recently demonstrated the highest reported drive current on a transistor made of a monolayer of tungsten diselenide (WSe2), a 2-dimensional atomic crystal...
The new map, a work of classic anatomy called BigBrain, is 50 times as detailed as previous efforts and will be available to researchers everywhere.
Amazing: The brain of 65-year-old woman was preserved in paraffin after her death, sliced into 7,400 sections and photographed at a microscopic level just above that of viewing individual cells. Its portrait will serve, the researchers said, as an anatomical framework that other researchers can use as a reference, whether they are investigating large patterns of brain function or small details.
