Device Uses Solar Energy to Convert Carbon Dioxide into Fuel (Update)
Chemists at the University of California, San Diego have demonstrated the feasibility of exploiting sunlight to transform a greenhouse gas into a useful product.
High efficiency flat light source invented
Tired of fluorescent tubes? Imagine your ceiling -- or any surface -- as a giant light panel, thanks to OLED research from the University of Southern California and Princeton University.
Nonlocality of a Single Particle Demonstrated Without Objections
Math professor's side mirror that eliminates 'blind spot' receives US patent
A side mirror that eliminates the dangerous "blind spot" for drivers has now received a U.S. patent. The subtly curved mirror, invented by Drexel University mathematics professor Dr. R. Andrew Hicks, dramatically ...
Breakup event in the main asteroid belt likely caused dinosaur extinction 65 million years ago
The impactor believed to have wiped out the dinosaurs and other life forms on Earth some 65 million years ago has been traced back to a breakup event in the main asteroid belt.
Physicists Modify Double-Slit Experiment to Confirm Einstein's Belief
Work completed by physics professors at Rowan University shows that light is made of particles and waves, a finding that refutes a common belief held for about 80 years.
Splitting Water with Sunlight
Hydrogen is one of the most important fuels of the future, and the sun will be one of our most important sources of energy. Why not combine the two to produce hydrogen directly from solar energy without any detours involving ...
New theory (and old equations) may explain causes of ship-sinking freak waves
Probing Question: Can anything travel faster than the speed of light?
Can anything travel faster than the speed of light? "No," is what Albert Einstein would likely say if he was alive today -- and he would be the man to ask, because scientists have been taking his word for it ...
Jupiter's Moon Europa Has Enough Oxygen For Life
New research suggests that there is plenty of oxygen available in the subsurface ocean of Europa to support oxygen-based metabolic processes for life similar to that on Earth. In fact, there may be enough ...
