Gravitational waves finally captured

Nobel prizes in physics announced

03-Oct-2017

On 14 September 2015, the universe’s gravitational waves were observed for the very first time. The waves, which were predicted by Albert Einstein a hundred years ago, came from a collision between two black holes. It took 1.3 billion years for the waves to arrive at the LIGO detector in the ...

Revealing the molecular mechanisms of the circadian clock

Nobel Prizes in Physiology or Medicine announced

02-Oct-2017

Life on Earth is adapted to the rotation of our planet. For many years we have known that living organisms, including humans, have an internal, biological clock that helps them anticipate and adapt to the regular rhythm of the day. But how does this clock actually work? Jeffrey C. Hall, Michael ...

Graphene and other carbon nanomaterials can replace scarce metals

20-Sep-2017

Scarce metals are found in a wide range of everyday objects around us. They are complicated to extract, difficult to recycle and so rare that several of them have become “conflict minerals” which can promote conflicts and oppression. A survey at Chalmers University of Technology now shows that ...
