Bactericidal nanomachine: Researchers reveal the mechanisms behind a natural bacteria killer

Scientists are one step closer to adapting the bacteria-killing power of a naturally occurring nanomachine, a tiny particle that performs a mechanical...

Estuaries are warming at twice the rate of oceans and atmosphere

Estuaries on the south-east coast of Australia are warming at twice the rate of oceans and the atmosphere, a new study has...

Methane forms under space conditions in laboratory

An international team of astronomers has shown in a laboratory at Leiden University (the Netherlands) that methane can form on icy dust...

Satellite galaxies of the Milky Way help test dark matter theory

A research team led by physicists at the University of California, Riverside, reports tiny satellite galaxies of the Milky Way can be...

Closing in on matter-antimatter asymmetry: T2K results restrict possible values of...

The T2K Collaboration has published new results showing the strongest constraint yet on the parameter that governs the breaking of the symmetry...

Hot qubits break one of the biggest constraints to practical quantum...

Most quantum computers being developed around the world will only work at fractions of a degree above absolute zero. That requires multi-million-dollar...

Carbon nanotubes embedded in leaves detect chemical signals that are produced...

MIT engineers have developed a way to closely track how plants respond to stresses such as injury, infection, and light damage, using...

Bees point to new evolutionary answers

Evolutionary biology aims to explain how new species arise and evolve to occupy myriad niches—but it is not a singular or simplistic...

Human handling stresses young monarch butterflies

People handle monarch butterflies. A lot. Every year thousands of monarch butterflies are caught, tagged and released during their fall migration by...

New boron material of high hardness created by plasma chemical vapor...

Yogesh Vohra, Ph.D., uses microwave-plasma chemical vapor deposition to create thin crystal films of never-before-seen materials. This effort seeks materials that approach...

Earth-size, habitable-zone planet found hidden in early NASA Kepler data

A team of transatlantic scientists, using reanalyzed data from NASA's Kepler space telescope, has discovered an Earth-size exoplanet orbiting in its star's...
