NASA Mystery: Electron 'Superhighway' Traveling at Speed of Light Discovered Just Outside Earth's Magnetic Field
"This is a puzzling case because we're seeing energetic electrons where we don't think they should be, and no model fits them," said David Sibeck, co-author and THEMIS project scientist at NASA Goddar...
Dragon's Breath behaves strangely on water
This is lycopodium powder. It's the spores of club moss and it has amazing properties
Unexpected Role Of Electrons In Creating Pulsating Auroras
Researchers have uncovered evidence for an unexpected role that electrons have in creating the dancing auroras. Thanks to a lucky conjunction of two satellites, a ground-based array of all-sky cameras...
Metallic Gels Produce Tunable Light Emission
Researchers at MIT have developed a family of materials that can emit light of precisely controlled colors — even pure white light — and whose output can be tuned to respond to a wide variety of exter...
Scientists Discover Fundamental Property Of Light – 150 Years After Maxwell
Photons have neither mass nor charge, and so behave very differently from their massive counterparts, but they do share a property, called spin, which results in remarkable geometric and topological p...
Vanishing Friction
A new technique tunes friction between two surfaces, to the point where friction can vanish. MIT researchers developed a frictional interface at the atomic level. The blue corrugated surface represent...
Physicists Create New Form of Ice: Square Ice
In our everyday lives we are familiar with water in its more common liquid, ice and vapor forms. Researchers also study water under more extreme conditions, including at high pressures, where it can e...
Why Some Mushrooms Glow In The Dark
A team of scientists recently created some fake, glowing mushrooms and scattered them in a Brazilian forest in hopes of solving an ancient mystery: Why do some fungi emit light? The question goes back...
Pee On These Walls And They'll Pee On You
St. Pauli's Community of Interest initiated an action where frequented walls in the neighborhood were sprayed with a super-hydrophobic coating. This coating is so water-repellent that urine splashes r...
Sun damage keeps happening even after you go inside, new study says
Some of the damage caused by sunlight -- the DNA damage that can lead to sun burns and even skin cancer -- may occur after sun exposure ends, according to a new study. And the damage may rely on the p...
Matter will be created from light within a year, claim scientists
In a neat demonstration of E=mc2, physicists believe they can create electrons and positrons from colliding photons
LG to sell first OLED 4K TV -- for $11K
LG Electronics today announced it is now selling the world's first OLED TV with 4K (3840 x 2160-pixel) resolution. The sets, available in 77-in. and 65-in. screen sizes, will come in a curved panel fo...
AMOLED Tech To Expand in the TV Market
If this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES) taught consumers anything, it's that TV manufacturers will be leaning hard on Ultra HD to sell TVs in …
Molecule
A molecule /ˈmɒlɪkjuːl/ is an electrically neutral group of two or more atoms held together by chemical bonds. Molecules are distinguished from ions by their lack of electrical charge. However, in qua...
