Water, like gold, is where you find it and a team of scientists led by Shuai Li of the University of Hawaii and Brown University claim to have found definitive evidence of water ice at both north and south poles of the Moon. Using data from NASA's Moon Mineralogy Mapper (M3) instrument aboard the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) Chandrayaan-1 lunar orbiter, the new discovery indic
Newsflash: Vegetables are good for you! OK, so this may not exactly be news, but a new study from a team of researchers has revealed for the first time one of the key biological mechanisms at play explaining exactly how chemicals produced by some vegetables can prevent cancer and colon inflammation...

researchers genetically modified millions of bacteria to smoothly swim with a light controllable speed, and then arranged them into complex and reconfigurable density patterns. The post italian scientists use bacteria to ‘paint’ the mona lisa appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
Understanding how cells self-destruct, a technique employed by the human body to discard dangerous or damaged cells, could mean big things for the treatment of everything from cancer to brain disease to hair loss. Stanford scientists have shone the light on one kind of programmed cell death and watched on as the path of destruction was formed, with the speed on show offering vital clues as
the shape is adopted by epithelial cells, the building blocks of embryonic development and the cells that line the inside and outside of your body. The post introducing the scutoid, scientists discovery of a brand new shape appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
the discovery could lead to the creation of nanoparticles inspired by the pyramid's shape that could be used as solar cells or even sensors, a quirk in the design not realised when they were built 4,400 years ago. The post scientists discover that the shape of the great pyramid of giza can focus electromagnetic energy appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
We've all heard about ancient insects getting preserved in amber (fossilized tree resin), with similarly-preserved items including dinosaur feathers, mammalian red blood cells and a bizarre spider. Now, for the first time, scientists have found an amber-encased prehistoric snake... Continue Reading Scientists find prehistoric baby snake preserved in amber Category: Biology Tags:
For years, scientists have seen silicon as a hugely promising material in the world of lithium-ion batteries. The primary reason for this is that using it as the anode could mean batteries with 10 times the capacity of current versions – at least in theory. But in reality, it easily breaks apart as the battery goes through its charging cycles. Scientists at Norway's Institute for Energy Te
To say "Antarctica is cold" will surprise nobody, but just how cold it can get might. Researchers from the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) at the University of Colorado Boulder have now identified the coldest places on the planet, where the mercury plummets to almost -100° C (-148° F) under specific conditions...

The steady march of aging might not have to be so steady, according to a growing body of research. The latest development, from a team at the University at Buffalo, has now isolated a single gene that controls senescence, the process that stops cells from dividing, and found how easily that can spread among neighboring cells. That makes the gene a crucial target for future work into anti-a
