Team studies rare meteorite possibly from the outer asteroid belt
(Phys.org)—Scientists found treasure when they studied a meteorite that was recovered April 22, 2012 at Sutter's Mill, the gold discovery site that led to the 1849 California Gold Rush. Detection of the ...
Shaking some limbs on the tree of life: Ancient Australian fossils were on land, not at sea, geologist proposes
Ancient multicellular fossils long thought to be ancestors of early marine life are remnants of land-dwelling lichen or other microbial colonies, says University of Oregon scientist Gregory Retallack, who ...
Conductance measurements on graphene nanoribbons tell researchers how molecular wires can be optimised
(Phys.org)—The electronics of the future could use molecules to do their arithmetic. The tiny particles could then take over the tasks which are presently done by silicon transistors, for example. Researchers ...
High-temperature superconductivity starts at nanoscale
(Phys.org) -- High-temperature superconductivity doesn't happen all it once. It starts in isolated nanoscale patches that gradually expand until they take over.
In metallic glasses, researchers find a few new atomic structures
Drawing on powerful computational tools and a state-of-the-art scanning transmission electron microscope, a team of University of Wisconsin-Madison and Iowa State University materials science and engineering researchers has ...
