Study: Climate change could cause decline of some alpine butterfly species

The long-term effects of climate change suggests that the butterfly effect is at work on butterflies in the alpine regions of North America, according to a new study by University of Alberta scientists—and the...
Report: NASA's orbital views of a strengthening, dangerous major hurricane Laura

Report: NASA’s orbital views of a strengthening, dangerous major hurricane Laura

Astronauts aboard the International Space Station provided images of Hurricane Laura as it continues to strengthen in the Gulf of Mexico. Laura is pushing waters from the Gulf of Mexico that could inundate coastal...
Scientists identify new genetic defect linked to ALS

Scientists identify new genetic defect linked to ALS

Researchers at the University of Maryland School of Medicine (UMSOM) have identified how certain gene mutations cause amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. The pathway identified by the researchers may...
Study: Sharing a secret...the quantum way

Study: Sharing a secret…the quantum way

Researchers at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa, have demonstrated a record setting quantum protocol for sharing a secret amongst many parties. The team created an 11-dimensional quantum state and used...
Study: These tiny, self-assembling traps capture PFAS

Study: These tiny, self-assembling traps capture PFAS

University at Buffalo chemists have shown that self-assembling molecular traps can be used to capture PFAS -- dangerous pollutants that have contaminated drinking water supplies around the world. The traps are made from iron-based and...
Study: New mathematical method shows how climate change led to fall of ancient civilization

Study: New mathematical method shows how climate change led to fall of ancient civilization

A Rochester Institute of Technology researcher developed a mathematical method that shows climate change likely caused the rise and fall of an ancient civilization. In an article recently featured in the journal Chaos: An...
Study: Antarctic Glacial Melt May Be Irreversible Causing Sea Rise

Study: Antarctic Glacial Melt May Be Irreversible Causing Sea Rise

A glacier the size of Florida is melting much faster than expected and may soon trigger a 50cm, or 19.6 inches, rise in sea level, according to a new NASA-funded study published online by...
Study: Investigating a thermal challenge for MOFs

Study: Investigating a thermal challenge for MOFs

To the naked eye, metal organic frameworks (MOFs) look a little like sand. But if you zoom in, you will see that each grain looks and acts more like a sponge--and serves a similar...
Study: Low temperature physics gives insight into turbulence

Study: Low temperature physics gives insight into turbulence

A novel technique for studying vortices in quantum fluids has been developed by Lancaster physicists. Andrew Guthrie, Sergey Kafanov, Theo Noble, Yuri Pashkin, George Pickett and Viktor Tsepelin, in collaboration with scientists from Moscow State...
Study: CCNY engineer Xi Chen and partners create new shape-changing crystals

Study: CCNY engineer Xi Chen and partners create new shape-changing crystals

Imagine harnessing evaporation as a source of energy or developing next generation actuators and artificial muscles for a broad array of applications. These are the new possibilities with the creation by an international team...
