Hubble’s glorious new photo shows the stormy side of Jupiter

The majestic Jupiter, the warring elder brother of our solar system, is pushing its best side forward *. A sharp new image from the Hubble Space Telescope shows the wild, ever-changing weather of the giant planet – revealing both short-term and long-term changes. In the northern hemisphere, turbulent clouds may indicate the formation of a new swirling storm, while in …

Great progress for electronic gadgets of the future

The use of “hidden” defects at the atomic level can change the conductivity of the material, while maintaining its structural integrity. Credit: Nanolayers Research Computing Researchers at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) have discovered a completely new method for testing the electronic properties of oxide materials. This opens the door for even smaller components and possibly more …

A NASA-led study of melting ice gives a terrible prognosis for rising sea levels

Uncontrolled greenhouse gas emissions could increase sea levels by more than 15 inches, scientists have concluded, using NASA data to issue a stern warning of melting ice. The huge rise will lead to severe floods in the coastal regions of the world and create a potentially apocalyptic chain reaction of consequences. Warming conditions on Earth are already blamed for the …

Detection of SARS-CoV-2 using the SHERLOCK test in one pot

To the editor: Diagnostic tests based on CRISPR (clustered, regularly moving short palindrome repetitions)1.2 jointly provide a nascent platform for the detection of viral and bacterial pathogens. Methods such as SHERLOCK (specific highly sensitive enzymatic unlocking of the reporter), which typically use a two-step process (target amplification followed by CRISPR-mediated nucleic acid detection),1.2 were used to detect SARS-CoV-2.3 However, these …

We could build a shelter for Mars from polymer insects and Martian soil

Bioinspired production A group of researchers suggests that we could use one of the most common organic polymers on Earth to build shelters on Mars. The material, called chitin, is produced and metabolized by most biological organisms and is a major part of the cell walls in fungi, insect exoskeletons and fish scales. The team, led by Javier Fernandez of …
