Science in Ukraine and in Iraq: Two sides of the same coin
Newton’s “force” and fake doors: The “geometric spirit” in the arts
Search and Discovery
Visible light can track molecules with nanometer and millisecond resolution, even amid the complexity of a living cell.
With recent advances in laser technology and cold-atom methods, the technique’s sensitivity to the isotope has reached environmental levels.
Issues and Events
Even as shelling of Ukrainian facilities threatens a radiological disaster, Russia’s sales of enriched uranium to the US and the EU continue.
Duplicating or replacing serendipitous encounters in virtual environments is a challenge.
Through a combination of idealized simulations and real-world data, researchers are uncovering how internal feedbacks and large-scale motions influence cloud dynamics.
Fifteen years after the surprising discovery of superconductivity in iron-based materials, researchers are beginning to impart some of their newfound wisdom on a slew of emerging superconductors that display similar traits.
The predominance of green terrestrial plants stems from chlorophyll’s absorbance wavelengths. Those spectral selections ensure consistent energy harvesting and avoid photo-oxidative stress.
