How plants evolved to weather the cold
A team of researchers studying plants has assembled the largest dated evolutionary tree, using it to show the order in which flowering plants evolved specific strategies, such as the seasonal shedding of ...
Some volcanoes 'scream' at ever-higher pitches until they blow their tops
It is not unusual for swarms of small earthquakes to precede a volcanic eruption. They can reach a point of such rapid succession that they create a signal called harmonic tremor that resembles sound made ...
Champion nano-rust for producing solar hydrogen
EPFL and Technion researchers have figured out the "champion" nanostructures able to produce hydrogen in the most environmentally friendly and cheap manner, by simply using daylight.
The secret lives of bubbles: Mathematicians describe evolution, dissolution of clusters of bubbles (w/ video)
Bubble baths and soapy dishwater, the refreshing head on a beer and the luscious froth on a cappuccino. All are foams, beautiful yet ephemeral as the bubbles pop one by one.
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.

Enceladus plume is a new kind of plasma laboratory
(Phys.org) -- Recent findings from NASA's Cassini mission reveal that Saturn's geyser moon Enceladus provides a special laboratory for watching unusual behavior of plasma, or hot ionized gas. In these recent ...
New Interstellar Boundary Explorer data show heliosphere's long-theorized bow shock does not exist
For the last few decades, space scientists have generally accepted that the bubble of gas and magnetic fields generated by the sun known as the heliosphere moves through space, creating three ...
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 ...
