Op-Ed: Mystery on Titan — Why did a feature in Titan’s sea disappear?

Sydney - Astronomers watching features on Saturn’s moon Titan were astonished to see a “land” feature simply disappear on photos from the Cassini spacecraft. This large feature, a peninsula on the Saturnian hydrocarbon “sea,” seems to have disappeared.

World’s smallest diamonds produced by nanotech

Scientists have found out how to produce ultra-thin "diamond nanothreads." These nano-diamonds have greater strength and stiffness compared with any other nanotubes and polymer fibers.

Super fast lasers break world record

London - Researchers have engineered a record-breaking laser that accelerates the interaction between light and matter by over 10 times.

Origin of Earth’s water may be key to life on other planets

A new study suggests the origins of water on Earth may lie far outside our solar system, in interstellar space, and took place long before the formation of the sun. If so, the same chain of events that led to life on Earth could happen elsewhere.

Study to explore medical marijuana as a treatment for epilepsy

Scientists at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus are to examine the genes from people with a form of epilepsy called Dravet Syndrome and who have been treated with medical marijuana. The aim is to see if medical marijuana helps.

Mantis shrimps can see cancer

Predicting the next Nobel Prizes

Using citation statistics, the Thomson Reuters is forecasting which researchers are likely to take home science’s top honors this year: the Nobel Prizes.

Are soil microbes linked to climate change?

Without knowing how microbes in the soil contribute to atmospheric carbon, researchers are unclear how microbes impact on climate change. This conundrum has lead to a series of recent studies.

ICU’s effects on gut microbes

Lengthy spells in intensive care units can alter the gut microflora, according to a new study. When a patient spends a long time in ICU the gut seems to undergo near-complete ecologic collapse. This has major health consequences.

Animals around Fukushima are still suffering

Fukushima - Animals and insects in the vicinity of Fukushima show higher rates of death and disease, according to new research. Scientists attribute these to the consumption of contaminated food.

Search for biofuels leads to the human gut

The search for microorganisms to use in biofuel generation has led to the human lower intestine. A new study demonstrates how such microorganisms could be effective candidates for organic fuel production.

Hawking: 'I'm an atheist, science is more convincing than God'

The world's preeminent theoretical physicist has explicitly acknowledged for the first time that he is an atheist, explaining that "science offers a more convincing explanation" of the origins of the universe than 'God.'

Ancient diseases provide new insights into today’s pathogens

Humans have lived with deadly epidemics since they formed the first communities. Researchers study ancient scourges, such as the bubonic plague, in order to understand how the body responds to infections. Such insights can inform about modern infections.
