A new research says that the lava tubes – underground caves created by volcanic activity – on the moon and Mars could serve as protected habitats large enough to colonize house streets or even towns. Scientists say these gigantic caves would provide natural shelter form from cosmic radiation and meteorite strikes for astronauts who would set up colonies there in future. Two separate teams of scientists have been...

Mechanism of asexual reproduction in flatworms

Added: 25.09.2017 22:22 | 10 views | 0 comments

Scientists have nailed the biomechanics of a centuries-long puzzle on how freshwater flatworms known as planarians reproduce. The asexual freshwater worms, notoriously difficult to study, tear themselves into two pieces that go on to form two new worms. Researchers are now able to predict where planarian fission occurs based on its anatomy as well as explain how the process happens using a relatively simple mechanical model.

Physicists demonstrate using a laser to control a current in graphene within just one femtosecond

Added: 25.09.2017 21:41 | 17 views | 0 comments

Controlling electronic current is essential to modern electronics, as data and signals are transferred by streams of electrons which are controlled at high speed. Demands on transmission speeds are also increasing as technology develops. Scientists have now succeeded in switching on a current with a desired direction in graphene using a single laser pulse within a femtosecond. This is more than a thousand times faster compared to the most efficient transistors today.
