Study shows Moon engulfed in permanent, lopsided dust cloud
The moon is engulfed in a permanent but lopsided dust cloud that increases in density when annual events like the Geminids spew shooting stars, according to a new study led by University of Colorado Boulder.
Researchers develop lower-cost, more efficient nanostructure for fuel cells
A team led by researchers at the UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science has developed nanostructures made from a compound of three metals that increases the efficiency and durability ...

Comet springs surprise: Rosetta and Philae find Comet 67P not magnetised
Measurements made by Rosetta and Philae during the probe's multiple landings on Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko show that the comet's nucleus is not magnetised.
'Dwarf planet' Ceres spawns giant mystery (Update)
First classified a planet, then an asteroid and then a "dwarf planet" with some traits of a moon—the more scientists learn about Ceres, the weirder it becomes.
Chemists create tiny gold nanoparticles that reflect nature's patterns
Our world is full of patterns, from the twist of a DNA molecule to the spiral of the Milky Way. New research from Carnegie Mellon chemists has revealed that tiny, synthetic gold nanoparticles exhibit some ...
