Irish mathematicians explain why Guinness bubbles sink (w/ video)
Bubble-propelled microrockets could operate in the human stomach
Researchers revolutionize closed captioning
Improving the theory of phase transitions with supercomputers
When water molecules evaporate from a liquid phase into a gaseous phase, they alter their aggregate state. The mathematical description of such a phase transition harbours pitfalls as nucleation is needed ...
Magnetic bubbles behave differently than other magnetic defects (w/ video)
Can the wave function of an electron be divided and trapped?
New research by physicists from Brown University puts the profound strangeness of quantum mechanics in a nutshell—or, more accurately, in a helium bubble.
Shape shifting liquid metal able to propel itself through liquids (w/ video)
Despite extensive analysis, Fermi bubbles defy explanation
(Phys.org) —Scientists from Stanford and the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory have analyzed more than four years of data from NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope, along with ...
Hubble discovers that Milky Way core drives wind at 2 million miles per hour
(Phys.org)—At a time when our earliest human ancestors had recently mastered walking upright, the heart of our Milky Way galaxy underwent a titanic eruption, driving gases and other material outward at ...
Is the universe a bubble? Let's check
Perimeter Associate Faculty member Matthew Johnson and his colleagues are working to bring the multiverse hypothesis, which to some sounds like a fanciful tale, firmly into the realm of testable science.
Researchers develop new kind of internal combustion microengine
No more bubbles when boiling water
(Phys.org)—The research, which is the first of its kind, has identified a specially engineered steel surface that allows liquids to boil without bubbling.
SensaBubble: It's a bubble, but not as we know it (w/ video)
Multi-sensory technology that creates soap bubbles, which can have images projected onto them or when the bubbles are burst release a scent, will be unveiled at an international conference later this month.
A galactic magnetic field in a lab bolsters astrophysical theory
Why is the universe magnetized? It's a question scientists have been asking for decades. Now, an international team of researchers including a University of Michigan professor have demonstrated that it could ...
