Air conditioning control goes wireless

Scientists devised a new wireless and energy autonomous sensor network using in collective buildings to monitor heating, ventilation and air conditioning and reduce energy consumption

Calculating quantum vacuum forces in nanostructures

(Phys.org)—One of the surprising predictions of quantum mechanics is that uncharged conductors can attract each other over small distances, even in empty space. While the resulting "Casimir force" has been accurately measured ...

Scientists use molecular layers to study nanoscale heat transfer

Scientific research has provided us with a fundamental understanding of how light (via photons) and electricity (via electrons) move within and between materials at the micrometer or nanometer levels, making possible a wide ...

Temperatures measured at Gale Crater higher than expected

(Phys.org)—Preliminary weather reports from the Curiosity's Remote Environment Monitoring Station (REMS) are showing some surprisingly mild temperatures during the day. Average daytime air temperatures have reached a peak ...

New insight on Mars expected from new NASA mission

(Phys.org) -- On Aug. 20, NASA announced the selection of InSight, a new Discovery-class mission that will probe Mars at new depths by looking into the deep interior of Mars.
