'Ghostly' neutrinos provide new path to study protons

Neutrinos are one of the most abundant particles in our universe, but they are notoriously difficult to detect and study: they don't have an electrical charge and have nearly no mass. They are often referred to as "ghost ...

Hydrogen storage material's key restriction identified

A group of researchers has identified the key stumbling block of a common solid-state hydrogen material, paving the way for future design guidelines and widespread commercial use.

Protecting biocatalysts from oxygen

Certain enzymes from bacteria and algae can produce molecular hydrogen from protons and electrons—an energy carrier on which many hopes are riding. All they need for this purpose is light energy. The major obstacle to their ...

Fusion breakthrough is a milestone for climate, clean energy

Scientists announced Tuesday that they have for the first time produced more energy in a fusion reaction than was used to ignite it—a major breakthrough in the decades-long quest to harness the process that powers the sun.
