Stanford University scientists are another step toward building a better battery doing long shifts at the helm of a highly sophisticated microscope recording chemical reactions at near-atomic-scale resolution. The researchers are camped out with one of the most advanced microscopes in the world to capture an unimaginably small reaction in the Dionne lab 18 feet […]






University of Texas at Austin researchers have mapped the lowest cost electricity generation by county for the lower 48 states. There aren’t many surprises. Natural gas and wind are said to be the lowest-cost technology options for new electricity generation across much of the U.S. when cost, public health impacts and environmental effects are considered. […]






A team of scientists report in a new study that they have found evidence of hardy, methane-producing microbes in a fresh water spring. Previously methane-producing microbes that feed off chemical reactions between water and rock were found in vents deep on the ocean floor. The scientists are now confirming the evidence of this process has […]






Prof. André Füzfa of Namur University has proposed, with supporting mathematical proof, a device with which to create detectable gravitational fields. The device is based on superconducting electromagnets and therefore relies on technologies routinely used, for example, at CERN or the ITER reactor. The idea, now with math and peer review enough for publication is […]






Since the resignation of the last Nuclear Regulatory Commission chairman, Gregory Jaczko there has been a general lift in the industry’s spirits. So far the current chairwoman, Allison McFarlane hasn’t made any moves to quell American enthusiasm. This situation, now well over a year in, has raised a lot of hopes and stirred a lot […]
