US-based new facility to produce isotopes not found on Earth, paves way for...

Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) at Michigan State University opened earlier this month. It will house the world's most powerful heavy-ion accelerator, allowing researchers to access more than 1,000 new rare isotopes. The FRIB will shed light on the formation of atomic nuclei and how the universe formed.

Plan for the vulnerable: India's heat emergency must be humane

India’s spring heatwave spell, when maximum temperatures went up to 46-47 degrees Celsius over several parts of northwest, central, and east India, made the global scientific community take note of the unprecedented event. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, earlier this month, chaired a meeting on heatwave preparedness where he directed states and districts to come up with heat action plans.

ESA astronaut clicks beautiful pictures of lunar eclipse from International...

European Space Agency astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti shared a series of stunning images of the eclipse as seen from ISS on Twitter. One of the photos shows the lunar eclipse happening, framed between the blades of the space station’s solar panels and a massive blue expanse that is Earth. Another image shows just the moon juxtaposed against the darkness of space.

Skyfall in Gujarat, expert says likely debris of a Chinese rocket

It started with three metal balls that fell on Bhalej, Khambholaj and Rampura villages on Thursday evening. They were followed by fragments of metal, one of which apparently fell on a sheep pen in a farm, killing a lamb. An astronomer at Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics tweeted this could possibly be debris from the “re-entry of the third stage” of a Chinese rocket.

Mundka fire: Bodies charred beyond recognition, forensic lab has tough task at hand

Forensic Science Laboratory in Delhi has collected DNA samples from 27 bodies. Only eight out of the 27 bodies have been identified and the rest have no jewellery or clothes that can help with identification. Officials said DNA testing and profiling can take days or weeks because of the number of test samples.

Examination of meteorite from Mars reveals limited water exposure

A team of researchers has investigated a meteorite from Mars using neutron and X-ray tomography. This technology will also likely be used by NASA when they examine samples from the red planet in 2030. An international research team led by Lund University has studied a meteorites that is approximately 1.3 billion years old using advanced scanning techniques.

IISc scientists develop tiny robots that can deep clean teeth using a magnetic field

Nano-sized robots manipulated using a magnetic field can help kill bacteria deep inside the teeth. Root canal treatments are routinely carried out to treat tooth infections in millions of patients. Many times the treatment fails to completely remove all the bacteria, especially antibiotic-resistant bacteria such as Enterococcus faecalis, which remain hidden inside microscopic canals in the tooth.

Scientists propose ‘invisible barriers’ in space to explain ‘planes of...

The Lambda-CDM model posits that smaller galaxies orbiting larger galaxies should be distributed randomly in a haphazard manner around larger ones. But instead, scientists often observe that these smaller galaxies are often arranged in flat planes around the larger ones, similar to the rings of Saturn. These observations are in contravention of the standard model, which prompted researchers to propose a new model where there are invisible walls or invisible barriers in space.
