Scientists investigate strange and alien water in Uranus and Neptune

Researchers are investigating an alien version of water inside strange, icy interiors Uranus and Neptune. In a new study, scientists have created a theoretical computer model and used it to look inside the ice giants Uranus and Neptune. With this tool, the team studied the thermal and electrical conductivity of unusual water within these planets. In simulating these physical processes …

We can finally know what Rhinos killed the wool, and were not humans

A brown-haired rhino that weighed two tons once roamed northeastern Siberia before mysteriously disappearing about 14,000 years ago. Was it caused by its destruction by humans, or the warming climate of the time? A new study by a Swedish and Russian scientific team that examined DNA fragments from the remains of 14 of these prehistoric mammals allows our species to …

Black silicon photodetector breaks 100% efficiency limit

UV light causes electrons to multiply in nanostructures. Credit: Wisa Förbom Aalto University researchers have developed a black silicon photodetector that has achieved over 130% efficiency. Thus, for the first time, a photovoltaic device has exceeded the 100% limit, which was previously considered as the theoretical maximum for external quantum efficiency. “When we saw the results, we could hardly believe …

How 14 elephant seals aided an ice study in Antarctica

At the bottom of the planet is the Southern Ocean, its waters are cold and shaky and covered with ice many months of the year. The edge of the ice cover, which melts during the summer and forms again in the winter, is called the marginal ice zone, and is extremely difficult to study. Large icebreakers, which have traditionally been …
