Extracting a richer palette of colors from black

Disordered biostructures are pervasive, for the most part producing white or black colors because of their broadband optical response and robustness to...

Indian scientists imaged novel Coronavirus under a high-powered microscope

Using transmission electron microscopy (TEM), scientists from the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), managed to image the novel Coronavirus. The image...

UniSA develops pandemic drone to detect Coronavirus in the crowd

We already know the role that drones have played in China during the peak of the coronavirus pandemic, either by distributing medicines,...

Novel Coronavirus: What do we need to know?

Many things about Novel Coronavirus are spreading rapidly through social media, WhatsApp, and the Internet. Some of these could be true, but...

A novel cosmological model to study thermodynamics on the horizon of the universe

Thermodynamics on the horizon of a flat universe at late times is studied in holographic cosmological models that assume an associated entropy...

Computational approach may lead to a future treatment for coronavirus

As the coronavirus pandemic spreads, Prof. Sarel Fleishman and his team in the Department of Biomolecular Sciences are deep into planning mode. Using a unique platform developed in their lab, they seek to address the...

Scientists invent symmetry-breaking for the first time in a nanoscale device that can mimic human brain

Over the last decade, artificial intelligence (AI) and its applications such as machine learning have gained pace to revolutionise many industries. As the world gathers more data, the computing power of hardware systems needs to...

Dancing electrons solve a longstanding puzzle in the oldest magnetic material

Magnetite is the oldest magnetic material known to humans, yet researchers are still mystified by certain aspects of its properties. For example, when the temperature is lowered below 125 kelvins, magnetite changes...

On the Origin of Massive Stars

This scene of stellar creation, captured by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, sits near the outskirts of the famous Tarantula Nebula. This cloud of gas and dust, as well as the many young and massive...

Telescope observes exoplanet where it rains iron

Researchers using ESO’s Very Large Telescope (VLT) have observed an extreme planet where they suspect it rains iron. The ultra-hot giant exoplanet has a day side where temperatures climb above 2400 degrees Celsius, high enough...

Study Evaluates Impact of Satellite Constellations on Astronomical Observations

Astronomers have recently raised concerns about the impact of satellite mega-constellations on scientific research. To better understand the effect these constellations could have on astronomical observations, ESO commissioned a scientific study of their impact, focusing...

Novel 3D model provides new insight into how our body’s stem cells interact with breast cancer cells

Biochemist Mj Brown, of the School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences, has investigated how human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) and breast cancer cells interact and affect each other’s invasiveness – a concept that has...

ESO Telescope Sees Surface of Dim Betelgeuse

Using ESO’s Very Large Telescope (VLT), astronomers have captured the unprecedented dimming of Betelgeuse, a red supergiant star in the constellation of Orion. The stunning new images of the star’s surface show not only the...
