(Phys.org)—A new "nano machine shop" that shapes nanowires and ultrathin films could represent a future manufacturing method for tiny structures with potentially revolutionary properties.
This image (above) from NASAs Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) shows a very long, whip-like solar filament extending over half a million miles in a long arc above the suns surface.
The Sun wanted to let us know there was action going on in other places in the Solar System besides Mars.
Muscle contraction and many other movement processes are controlled by the interplay between myosin and actin filaments. Two further proteins, tropomyosin and troponin, regulate how myosin binds to actin. While theoretical ...
(Phys.org) -- Physicists at Lehigh have created a mathematical model that could benefit researchers who study cell motion, including cancerous cell motion, tissue healing processes and human embryonic development.
Sri Lankan scientists have identified a new genus of fresh water fish and named it after the evolutionary biologist and renowned atheist Richard Dawkins.
(Phys.org) -- A beautiful blue butterfly flutters towards a nest of warm dust and gas, above an intricate network of cool filaments in this image of the Vela C region by ESAs Herschel space observatory.
(Phys.org) -- Actin filaments are one of the primary elements responsible for organizing cell architecture and helping them to move from one place to the next. They can be found in the smallest yeast cell and in your muscles, ...
