A non-hormonal, reversible and non-toxic male birth control could be a step closer, with scientists successfully targeting a protein that's crucial in making fertile sperm. Knocking this protein out for a period of time would give men control over their protection window, much like oral contraceptives for women – but without other side effects and no long-lasting fertility issues.Continue Reading
Coal ash is abundant around coal-fired power stations. In fact, that might be considerably understating things – globally, power stations produce around 1.2 billion tonnes annually, and in Australia coal ash accounts for nearly 20% of all waste. It's a staggering figure – and it's also a safe bet that this stuff will remain abundant long into the renewable energy transition.Continue ReadingCatego

The discovery was founded on the useful, but confusing idea of quasiparticles, which act as if they exist, but really don't. There are only three types of particle in a solid: protons, neutrons and electrons. When packed together in a solid, these individual particles are extraordinarily difficult to predict, since the motion of each is directly acted on by all the others in a massively chaotic m
