An abrupt and widespread climate shift in the Sahara 5,000 years ago
The Sahara Desert’s shift from lush grasslands to barren sands happened quickly and simultaneously across the entire region. Scientists say the brief African Humid Period began and ended […]
Artificial intelligence (AI) is one of the most actives fields of computer science. The idea of a computer learning, in an autonomous way, complicate tasks is exciting from both the fundamental and applied points of view.
One very recent and […]
Scientists use 3D printer to create networks of artificial cells
Researchers have developed networks of water droplets that can act like biological tissue cells. The researchers created the networks using a three-dimensional printer. The networks can support up to 35,000 […]
If you have ever faced that thankless task of cleaning fish, for sure you will have realized, at least envisaged, the complex architecture of the fish’s natural armour. Fish scales play the role of a skeleton which provides both protection […]
Quantum computers are one of the most promising technologies under development, and all their promises are completely justified. Quantum systems are extremely expensive to compute, where “expensiveness” can be measured either by the memory or the computational time required in […]
Our metastable universe
Under the simplest assumptions, the measured mass of the Higgs could mean the universe is eventually unstable and destined to fall apart.
Could flow batteries back up electric grids?
To power flow batteries, two […]
Bat-eating spiders are more common than you think
Bat-eating spiders are more common in the world than once believed. These spiders are found on all continents except Antarctica. Almost 90% of the web-building spider and tarantula species live in warmer […]
Thin films are defined as material layers ranging from nanometers to several micrometers of thickness that are deposited onto a matrix in order to modify its physical characteristics. Although solar cells conform a relevant field of application, it may be […]
3-body problem gets 13 more possible solutions
Scientists have come up with 13 new solutions to the “three-body problem,” a situation in which three objects orbit each other in a pattern. The discoveries, which will help astrophysicists further understand planetary […]
Bunnies implicated in the demise of Neanderthals in Iberia
Excavations are shedding light on what might have been a significant factor in the demise of the Neanderthal: the inability to hunt small game. The remains of large animals are prevalent […]
