New theory predicts magnets may act as wireless cooling agents. The amazing powers of magnetism…

The magnets cluttering the face of your refrigerator may one day be used as cooling agents, according to a new theory formulated by MIT researchers. The theory describes the motion of magnons — quasi-particles in …

Getting a charge out of water droplets. Water condensing and jumping from a superhydrophobic…

…surface can be harnessed to produce electricity. Last year, MIT researchers discovered that when water droplets spontaneously jump away from superhydrophobic surfaces during condensation, they can gain electric charge in the process. Now, the same …

Merging galaxies and droplets of starbirth Hubble snaps a violent galactic merger and chain of star formation

The Universe is filled with objects springing to life, evolving and dying explosive deaths. This new image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope captures a snapshot of some of this cosmic movement. Embedded within the …

Search for ExtraTerrestrial Intelligence: Record Levels of Solar Ultraviolet Measured in South America

A team of researchers in the U.S. and Germany has measured the highest level of ultraviolet radiation ever recorded on the Earth’s surface. The extraordinary UV fluxes, observed in the Bolivian Andes only 1,500 miles …

Ocean on Saturn Moon Could be as Salty as the Dead Sea. No fish? Maybe fish aliens and alienated…

Scientists analyzing data from NASA’s Cassini mission have firm evidence the ocean inside Saturn’s largest moon, Titan, might be as salty as the Earth’s Dead Sea. The new results come from a study of gravity …

The wonderful world of birds. Maybe Birds Can Have It All: Dazzling Colors and Pretty Songs

A study of one of the world’s largest and most colorful bird families has dispelled a long-held notion, first proposed by Charles Darwin, that animals are limited in their options to evolve showiness. The study …

Small but significant. Astronomers use Hubble Space Telescope to study bursts of star formation…

…in the dwarf galaxies of the early Universe. They may only be little, but they pack a star-forming punch: new observations from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope show that starbursts in dwarf galaxies played a …
