Lab mimicry opens a window to the deep interiors of stars and planets
The matter that makes up distant planets and even-more-distant stars exists under extreme pressure and temperature conditions. This matter includes members of a family of seven elements called the noble gases, ...
Hydrogels block harmful oxygen from sensitive catalysts
An international research team has found a way of protecting sensitive catalysts from oxygen-caused damage. In the future, this could facilitate the creation of hydrogen fuel cells with molecular catalysts ...
Fast-fill hydrogen fueling station enabling zero emission transportation
The Hawai'i Natural Energy Institute (HNEI) has commissioned a "Fast-Fill" high-pressure hydrogen fueling station at the Marine Corps Base Hawai'i (MCBH), Kaneohe Bay. This state-of-the-art station was developed ...
Catalyst that converts carbon dioxide to carbon monoxide in water
Proposed synchrotron could store supersonic beams of hydrogen atoms
Graphene oxide biodegrades with help of human enzymes
Graphene Flagship researchers show how graphene oxide suspended in water biodegrades in a reaction catalysed by a human enzyme, with the effectiveness of the breakdown dependent on the colloidal stability ...
A bubbly cosmic celebration
In the brightest region of the nebula RCW 34, gas is heated and expands through the surrounding cooler gas. Once the heated hydrogen reaches the borders of the gas cloud, it bursts outwards into the vacuum ...
Hycopter stores energy in form of hydrogen, not air
Galaxy's snacking habits revealed
A team of Australian and Spanish astronomers have caught a greedy galaxy gobbling on its neighbours and leaving crumbs of evidence about its dietary past.
Could we live on Jupiter?
NASA and Elon Musk have plans to get your ass to Mars.
Artificial photosynthesis: New, stable photocathode with great potential
A German team has developed a new composite photocathode for generating hydrogen using sunlight. The photocathode consists of a thin film of chalcopyrite produced by HZB/PVcomB coated with a newly developed ...
Researchers develop a novel organic device for obtaining hydrogen from water and sunlight
Hydrogen has great potential as a fuel. Researchers at the Photovoltaic and Optoelectronic Devices Group at the Universitat Jaume I have developed an organic device reduces water into hydrogen using only ...
Towards the ultimate model of water
Researchers from the National Physical Laboratory (NPL), IBM and the University of Edinburgh have developed the first conceptually simple but broadly applicable model for water.
Self-propelling particles mimic organisms' upstream moves
Scientists have created microbe-sized beads that can utilize energy in the environment to self-propel upstream by purely physical means.
