Fullerton faculty-student at California State University found the evidence of sudden sinking of the wetlands at the National Wildlife Refuge Seal Beach, California. It is caused by ancient earthquakes that shook the area at least three times in the past 2,000 years. Researchers believes that it could happen again. The 500- acre wetlands located within the …

A team of researchers suggests that the forces controlling the strange behavior of black holes in space, is also applicable on cold helium atoms that can be studied in laboratories. Talking about the discovery Adrian Del Maestro, a physicist at the University of Vermont who co-led the research said “It’s called an entanglement area law. …

Two decades ago, Ramanathan and Collins introduced a model that provides the information that how formation of cloud over Pacific waters sets an upper limit on how hot the tropics can get. The model is known as thermostat hypothesis. The model, which was first proposed in 1991, has had a warm welcome among skeptics of …

Scientists at the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have—in just two years—nearly doubled the number of materials known to have potential for use in solar fuels. They did so by developing a process that promises to speed the discovery of commercially viable generation of …

Medical implants like stents, catheters and tubing introduce risk for blood clotting and infection – a perpetual problem for many patients. Colorado State University engineers offer a potential solution: A specially grown, “superhemophobic” titanium surface that’s extremely repellent to blood. The material could form the basis for surgical implants with lower risk of rejection by …

NASA is preparing to send a spacecraft to a giant “metal” asteroid that may tell scientists the secret of how our solar system was formed. Led by Arizona State University researchers, the mission called “Psyche” is focused to know whether the asteroid, called “16 Psyche” and thought to be made of iron and nickel, could …

New research published today by a global team of researchers, based at the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR), seeks to answer that question. The study reveals that a phenomenon called ram-pressure stripping is more prevalent than previously thought, driving gas from galaxies and sending them to an early death by depriving them of …
