Foam favorable for oil extraction: Experiments visualize methods for enhanced recovery from wells
A Rice University laboratory has provided proof that foam may be the right stuff to maximize enhanced oil recovery (EOR).
Ingested nanoparticles may damage liver
(Phys.org) —Nanoparticles in food, sunscreen and other everyday products have many benefits. But Cornell biomedical scientists are finding that at certain doses, the particles might cause human organ damage.
Pushing the envelope in power electronics
U.S. electrical consumption is expected to climb about 1 percent a year through 2030, and the share of electricity that goes through power electronics is expected to climb to 80 percent during the same period. ...
Strange alien slime discovered living beneath the Nullarbor Plain
(Phys.org) —Deep in water-filled underground caves beneath Australia's Nullarbor Plain, cave divers have discovered unusual 'curtains' of biological material – known as Nullarbor cave slimes.
Meteorites expose Moon surface formation
Lunar meteorites contradict a theory of how the Moon's crust formed, originally based on Apollo mission samples.
No excess baggage: Antarctic insect's genome, newly sequenced, is smallest to date
Scientists who sequenced the genome of the Antarctic midge suspect the genome's small size – the smallest in insects described to date – can probably be explained by the midge's adaptation to its extreme ...
Researchers prove stability of wonder material silicene
An international team of researchers has taken a significant step towards understanding the fundamental properties of the two-dimensional material silicene by showing that it can remain stable in the presence ...
Crystal structure of COP9 signalosome elucidated
Nicolas Thomä and his group at the Friedrich Miescher Institute for Biomedical Research have elucidated the crystal structure of the human COP9 signalosome, an important regulator of protein degradation. ...
Native bacteria block Wolbachia from being passed to mosquito progeny
Native bacteria living inside mosquitoes prevent the insects from passing Wolbachia bacteria—which can make the mosquitoes resistant to the malaria parasite—to their offspring, according to a team of res ...
Antineutrino detectors could aid non-proliferation
Physicists at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland and even in the fictional world of CBS' "The Big Bang Theory" look to subatomic particles called neutrinos to answer the big questions about the universe.
