The importance of water is paramount. Life, as we know it, would be unthinkable without it. Not only that, the geology of our planet, and those of other planets, can not be properly understood without a knowledge of how […]

So, do you think you can tell heaven from hell? Well, David Gilmour does not believe you and, to be honest, neither do I. We use to think always about the Goldilock’s limits, within which the habitability of a system […]

Author: María A. Izquierdo-Morelos is a Ph.D. student (ITN-EJD-TCCM) at University of Groningen. . . Over the past several decades researchers have thought how materials and device architectures can efficiently convert solar radiation into electrical power through the photovoltaic effect. Those efforts […]

Strange objects near neighboring galaxies brighten, then dim. A pair of unknown objects near neighboring galaxies appear to produce extremely bright X-ray flares, then dim after about an hour. Astronomers aren’t sure what these objects are, noting that nothing […]

Author: Stefano Battaglia is a Ph.D. student (ITN-EJD-TCCM) at Université de Toulouse III. Since the Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded in 2010 to Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov for groundbreaking discoveries on the two-dimensional material graphene, the research in […]

Among the astonishing properties of graphene, a high mobility of the charge carriers has placed this material into the focus of intensive research efforts, aimed at developing high-speed graphene-based electronic devices. The first device of this family, a graphene […]

Author: Ewa N. Szlapa is a is a Ph.D. student (ITN-EJD-TCCM) at Catholic University of Leuven. At the beginning of the development of chemistry as a science there was alchemy, which was considered to be a magicians’ business. An alchemist […]

The two biggest questions in Economics are, no doubt, efficiency and equality. The first means no dilapidation of resources, the second means…, well, it may mean many things: equality of opportunities, resources, access to basic goods, or equality of […]

Single-celled amoeba uses molecular mechanisms similar to complex life. The single-celled amoeba Capsaspora owczarzaki has the same molecular tools as more complex organisms to help it move through various life stages. The findings suggest multi-celled mechanisms may have been […]
