NANO TECH
Shaping the future



Onna, Japan (SPX) Mar 15, 2017
While nanoparticles sound like a recent discovery, these tiny structures have been used for centuries. The famous Lycurgus cup, made by 4th century Roman artisans, features dichroic glass, with gold and silver nanoparticles sprinkled throughout, producing a green appearance when light is shining on it from the front, and a red appearance when illuminated from behind. In the centuries since the time of the ancient artisans, researchers have come a long way in understanding nanoparticles. The produc ... read more

Reduce Fuel Burn With a Dose of BLI
Washington DC (SPX) Mar 15, 2017
It sounds like a cause of heart burn. Instead, Boundary Layer Ingestion - or BLI - is a promising idea NASA researchers are studying to reduce fuel burn in jet engines, thus reducing emissions and the cost of operating the aircraft. At its simplest: With BLI, an airplane's engines are located near the rear of the aircraft so that air flowing over the aircraft body becomes part of the mix o ... more

The appearance of supermassive black holes at the dawn of the universe has puzzled astronomers since their discovery more than a decade ago. A supermassive black hole is thought to form over billions of years, but more than two dozen of these behemoths have been sighted within 800 million years of the Big Bang 13.8 billion years ago. In a new study in the journal Nature Astronomy, a team o ... more

Mammalian cells are optimally adapted to gravity. But what happens in the microgravity environment of space if the earth's pull disappears? Previously, many experiments exhibited cell changes - after hours or even days in zero gravity. Astronauts, however, returned to Earth without any severe health problems after long missions in space, which begs the question as to how capable cells are of ada ... more
