The image shows the distribution of surface ice at the Moon’s south pole (left) and north pole (right), detected by NASA’s Moon Mineralogy Mapper instrument. Blue represents the ice locations, plotted over an image of the lunar surface, where the gray scale corresponds to surface temperature (darker representing colder areas and lighter shades indicating warmer zones). The ice is concentrated at the darkest and coldest locations, in the shadows of craters. This is the first time scientists have directly observed definitive evidence of water ice on the Moon’s surface

Scientists make a leap into simulating quantum particles

A new research by the University of St Andrews’ School of Physics holds the potential to transform the way scientists predict about quantum particles behavior. The...
An illustration shows rubidium atom qubits isolated by scientists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology and proposed for use in quantum computers. A team led by Rice University computer scientist Anastasios Kyrillidis has proposed a scalable algorithm to significantly accelerate the task of validating the accuracy of quantum computers.

Quantum bugs, meet your new swatter

A Rice University scientist along with his colleagues have developed a new method to quicken and rearrange the monumental assignment of diagnosing quantum computers.  This...
Fabrication of an object using metamolds. The metamolds (red pieces far left and right) are used to fabricate the silicone molds (greenish and white shapes in the middle). The silicone can then be used repeatedly to form replicas (front)

Metamolds: Molding a mold

Scientists at the Istituto di Scienza e Tecnologie dell’Informazione (ISTI-CNR) and the Institute of Science and Technology Austria (IST Austria) have now developed a new...

An in-body GPS system for your body

Exploring inside the human body frequently requires cutting open a patient or swalloing long tubes with built-in cameras. To do this better and in less...
Redox regulation in plants to control photosynthetic activity Reduction/oxidation reactions in plants that control the activity of photosynthetic proteins when light is present (unshaded) and when it is absent (shaded). Unlike the well-known reactions that occur in the light, the mechanism of regulation in the dark was poorly understood. This study demonstrates that energy is funneled from the proteins to TrxL2 to 2CP and finally to hydrogen peroxide, keeping photosynthesis on standby until light is available again.

How do the plants relax photosynthesis at night?

Photosynthesis is a process used by plants in which energy from sunlight is used to convert carbon dioxide and water into molecules needed for...
This artist's impression shows a binary system containing a stellar-mass black hole called IGR J17091-3624, or IGR J17091 for short. The strong gravity of the black hole, on the left, is pulling gas away from a companion star on the right. This gas forms a disk of hot gas around the black hole, and the wind is driven off this disk. Credit: NASA/CXC/M.Weiss

Another way for stellar-mass black holes to grow larger

Scientists at the University of Hong Kong and Academia Sinica Institute of Astronomy and Astrophysics in Taiwan and Northwestern University in the U.S. come...
