A new way of cooling without power

Two versions of the device designed by MIT researchers, with a metal strip to block direct sunlight, were built and tested on the roof of an MIT building to confirm that they could cool well below ambient temperature. Credit: Bikram Bhatia MIT scientist has designed a new way of cooling on a hot sunny day, with cheap materials and requires …

These deep-sea microbes eat greenhouse gases

They can eat oil games as well. Hope you are hungry little guys, we have a lot to feed you. What a wonderful planet we live on. It's fun to be people, we tend to think we know everything, or everything about our planet, at least. But the foolishness of it is that we do not know what we do …

Atom beam – the first ultraviolet light lens was developed

Focusing an XUV beam with a beam of atoms used as a lens. Credit: MBI Berlin Researchers from the Max Born Institute (MBI) have developed the first reflection lens that focuses on extreme ultraviolet rays. Instead of using a glass lens, which is invisible in extremely ultraviolet, the researchers have shown a lens formed by an atomic atmosphere. The results, …

The mystery of the weird seismic waves that shook the world on November 11th

Earlier this month, seismic stations from Madagascar to Canada raised mysterious waves that burst for more than 20 minutes, unknown to most. Researchers and earthquake enthusiasts who detected the signals have reduced the rise to a region just offshore on the island of Mayotte in the Indian Ocean. But nobody is absolutely sure what caused the weird event. The slow …

Scientists found bacterial superbugs aboard the International Space Station – Quartz

For astronauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS), even orbiting 254 miles (408.7 km) above the planet's surface does not preclude Earthly concerns about antibiotic-resistant superbugs. Vijf dergelijke bacteriële stammen werden geïdentificeerd op de ISS tijdens routine milieutesten uitgevoerd door NASA, volgens een nieuw onderzoek gepubliceerd in het tijdschrift BMC Microbiologie. To date, geen rapporten hebben aangetoond dat astronauten faalde …

Potential arthritis prevents degradation of cartilage

Six days after treatment with IGF-1, carried by dendrimer nanoparticles (blue), the particles have penetrated the cartilage cartilage. Credit: Brett Geiger and Jeff Wyckoff Osteoarthritis, a disease that causes severe joint pain, affects more than 20 million people in the United States. Some drug treatments may help alleviate the pain, but there are no treatments that can reverse or slow …

Improve the treatment of osteoarthritis with a cartilage penetrating "nanocarrier"

Why have many researching arthroplasty flanked human studies? A team of researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology believes that the problem lies in the drug's short half-life in the sick leader. So they decided to design a material that could help drugs penetrate deeper into cartilage generating tissues, and they have returned with promising animal results. The MIT engineers …

Scary new wolf turns spiders into zombies

A scary new species of parasitic species that transforms their victims into suicide bombs has been found in the Amazon. Mardrömsvadden makes the spiders to helpless drones who abandon their own colonies to make the weeping bidding – before their larvae eat they lived. The cruel discovery – made in Ecuador – was discovered by researchers from the University of …
