  • Scientists develop 'backpack' computers to track wild animals in hard-to-reach habitats April 2, 2020
    To truly understand an animal species is to observe its behavior and social networks in the wild. With new technology described today (April 2) in PLOS Biology, researchers are able to track tiny animals that divide their time between flying around in the sky and huddling together in caves and hollow trees -- by attaching […]
  • A friendlier way to deal with nitrate pollution April 2, 2020
    Learning from nature, scientists from the Center for Sustainable Resource Science in Japan and the Korean Basic Science Institute (KBSI) have found a catalyst that efficiently transforms nitrate into nitrite -- an environmentally important reaction -- without requiring high temperature or acidity, and now have identified the mechanism that makes this efficiency possible.
  • Climate-related disasters increase risks of conflict in vulnerable countries April 2, 2020
    Research on the effects of climate change on armed violence have previously been open to interpretation but new study shows climate-related disasters enhance armed conflict risks.
  • An all-organic proton battery energized for sustainable energy storage April 2, 2020
    Sustainable energy storage is in great demand. Researchers at Uppsala University have therefore developed an all-organic proton battery that can be charged in a matter of seconds. The battery can be charged and discharged over 500 times without any significant loss of capacity. Their work has been published in the scientific journal Angewandte Chemie.
  • Does relativity lie at the source of quantum exoticism? April 2, 2020
    Since its beginnings, quantum mechanics hasn't ceased to amaze us with its peculiarity, so difficult to understand. Why does one particle seem to pass through two slits simultaneously? Why instead of specific predictions can we only talk about evolution of probabilities? According to theorists from universities in Warsaw and Oxford, the most important features of […]
