Search results for matter

in an interview with designboom, patrick lüth, the managing director of snøhetta, says that redesigning LAUFEN forum is centered on the idea of matter. The post snøhetta redesigns LAUFEN forum embracing the brand’s essence with materials that matter appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
Something seems to be missing from the universe, and the favored model of physics calls it “dark matter” – but despite a century of searching, it remains a no-show. A new paper proposes an alternative hypothesis, showing how gravity could exist without mass and produce many of the same effects we ascribe to dark matter.Continue ReadingCategory: Physics, ScienceTags: Astronomy, Dark Matter, Gravit
Based on fractal patterns in neurons, researchers believe our brains exist at or near a state called criticality where they're extremely close to shifting from one state of matter to another. They also admit they don't know what either state is.Continue ReadingCategory: Biology, ScienceTags: Northwestern University, Brain, Neuroscience, Neural Network, Neurological
This week, we reflect on the uprising that we’re seeing in the USA and across the world as people fight for change in how the lives of black and brown people in America and are viewed and valued. Andru shares his 24-hour fight with YouTube to get a video that would help protesters stay safe. Our guest, Sara Dietschy joins us and gives her unique perspective on the new Sony ZV1 handheld came
ESA has released the first five images from its Euclid space telescope that reveal unprecedented high-resolution pictures that cover large areas of the sky in a single shot, demonstrating its capabilities for its upcoming dark matter survey.Continue ReadingCategory: Space, ScienceTags: ESA, Astronomy, Euclid, Dark Matter, Images
Researchers have derived an antibiotic from microbes living in the sandy soil of North Carolina. Because it works completely differently than others before it, clovibactin might help turn the tide in the battle against superbugs that resist current drugs.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, ScienceTags: Superbugs, Antibiotic-resistant bacteria, Microbes, Bonn University, Utrecht University, Northea
The James Webb Space Telescope has already spotted some amazing things in its first year of science operations, but if a new study holds water it might be one of the most important finds of all time. A team of astrophysicists proposes that three bright objects detected by Webb in the distant universe could be the first candidate “dark stars,” hypothetical celestial objects powered by the annihila
The tiny bubbles or effervescence are a big part of the attraction of sipping a glass of champagne. A new study looked at how long it takes for the drink to lose its fizz and discovered that size is everything when it comes to keeping your champagne bubbly for longer.Continue ReadingCategory: ScienceTags: Champagne, Carbon Dioxide, Bubble, American Chemical Society
Currently, in order to see what type of bacteria (if any) are present in a liquid sample, bacterial cultures have to be grown in a lab over the course of several hours – or even a few days. A new laser technique, however, works in just minutes.Continue ReadingCategory: ScienceTags: Bacteria, Cornell University, Laser, Light
Astronomers have put together one of the most comprehensive maps of all the matter in the universe. The huge undertaking hints at a slightly smoother universe than we thought, suggesting that something might be missing from our models.Continue ReadingCategory: Physics, ScienceTags: Astronomy, Astrophysics, Matter, Dark Matter, Dark Energy, Cosmology, University of Chicago is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
