The design could someday enable a fully decarbonized power grid, researchers say.
When we enter into our early teens, we begin to question who we are and the world around us with greater veracity. If our energy, or inner fire, strongly conflicts with how we've been 'taught', then we rebel heavily. In contrast, if we've bee
The misconception is that electrons carry potential energy around a complete conducting loop, transferring their energy to the load. This video was sponsored by Caséta by Lutron.
In some of the experiments, the spiders were also observed crouching and stretching, which the scientists believe may be a way of tuning their webs to pick up sounds at different frequencies. Spiders are already known to respond when something vibrat
"Microbes like bacteria and fungi have these NRPS machines that are responsible for making molecules that act as important drugs and therapeutics," said Camille Fortinez, a recent PhD graduate of McGill's Department of Biochemistry and lead aut
Deep learning is a subset of machine learning which uses neural networks to perform learning and predictions. Deep learning has shown amazing performance in various tasks, whether it be text, time series or computer vision. The success of deep learni
We've covered Australian company HB11's hydrogen-boron laser fusion innovations before in detail, but it's worth briefly summarizing what makes this company so different from the rest of the field. In order to smash atoms together hard enough to m
Intelligent decision-making doesn't require a brain. You were capable of it before you even had one. Beginning life as a single fertilised egg, you divided and became a mass of genetically identical cells. They chattered among themselves to fashi
In tune with this characterisation, philosophers of mind and cognitive scientists alike often conceive of habits as highly mechanistic and near-automatic responses to environmental cues that unfold outside of our deliberative control. This conception
In The Structure of Scientific Revolutions, the philosopher of science Thomas Kuhn observed that scientists spend long periods taking small steps. They pose and solve puzzles while collectively interpreting all data within a fixed worldview or theore
The problem comes when you look at where that DNA comes from. Women's bodies make egg cells with half the normal complement of DNA, and men's bodies similarly make sperm cells. Where does the DNA for those cells come from? Your mother has 50% DNA
Your morning coffee is in a perilous state. There are just two species of coffee plants on which the entire multibillion-dollar industry is based: One of them is considered poor-tasting, and the other, which you're likely familiar with, is threaten
There's a serious undercount between how many black holes we've found out in the cosmos, compared to how many are expected to exist. But that's not too surprising really ?" these are the darkest objects possible, set against the inky void of
A new study by a team of researchers from Israel and Ghana has brought the first evidence of nonrandom mutation in human genes, challenging a core assumption at the heart of evolutionary theory by showing a long-term directional mutational response
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- Scientists at MIT have developed a material that is as light as plastic -- but stronger than steel. They believe the material could revolutionize the car, mobile phone and building industries.
Today we test 4 different car engines to compare their fuel efficiency. We start by topping off the cars then running them for two hours. Then we compare how much fuel was used by each car during that period.
Insectoid 'Mantis' Alien Saves Canadian Man's Life Posted: 18 Jan 2022 11:14 AM PST A Canadian man is in Georgia Bay, Ontario, Canada when he observes UFOs in a V-formation. He then has an encounter with an insectoid Mantis alien that
Exercise and vitamin D3 are beneficial, omicron is mild in children, asymptomatic spread with Omicron is significant
At the headquarters of China's most powerful nuclear fusion reactor, Chinese scientists rang in the new year by setting a world record for the longest-sustained operation of such a reactor, beating a world record they set last year 10 times over.
We need to link physics and biology to understand the universe. Particles can appear to be in many different places at once while doing many things at the same time in each place. (A particle can be both here and at the opposite end of the universe s
Well into the 1980s, doctors would perform open-heart surgery on infants without giving them pain-relieving drugs. This is hard to believe: By the standards of contemporary medicine, not to mention common sense, the practice is akin to torture. Yet t
The Arnold conjecture linked two fundamentally different ways of thinking about a shape. It suggested that mathematicians could gain information about the motion of objects in a given shape (reflected in how many configurations return the object to w
Published this week in Proceedings of the Royal Society B, the study evaluated hundreds of species of fossil clams to piece together a comprehensive evolutionary tree over hundreds of millions of years. University of Chicago scientists - along with c
Researchers used DNA capture-enrichment technology developed at McMaster to isolate and rebuild, in remarkable detail, the fluctuating animal and plant communities at different time points during the Pleistocene-Holocene transition, an unstable clima
Scientists at the University of Southampton have discovered that two intense periods of volcanism triggered a period of global cooling and falling oxygen levels in the oceans, which caused one of the most severe mass extinctions in Earth history.
Italy is not exactly renown for dinosaurs. In comparison to its excellent artistic and archaeological heritage, dinosaur fossils are very rare. Not surprisingly, the discovery of the first isolated remains from these animals, in the early 1990s, gene
"An existing theory is that water was carried to Earth in the final stages of its formation on C-type asteroids, however previous testing of the isotopic 'fingerprint' of these asteroids found they, on average, didn't match with the water found o
The fire storm created by a 20 kt weapon at Hiroshima burned out an area of over four square miles, and 68,C00 of Hiroshima's 75,000 buildings were destroyed or damaged. The severely burned out area from the Hamburg fire storm was about the same si
These plastic-free, "jelly ice cubes" do not melt, are compostable and anti-microbial, and prevent cross-contamination. Reusable and flexible
