Scientists crash lead nuclei together to create the hottest and densest nuclear material ever
The thousand-degree temperatures reached in the hottest of industrial furnaces is nothing compared to the equivalent temperatures achieved when particles traveling near the speed of light slam into each other.
New flow battery could enable cheaper, more efficient energy storage
MIT researchers have engineered a new rechargeable flow battery that doesn't rely on expensive membranes to generate and store electricity. The device, they say, may one day enable cheaper, large-scale energy ...
