Engineers developed a mathematical model of Ooblek

A favorite kitchen chemistry (and physics) experiment of kids (and adults), Ooblek is the weird result of mixing cornstarch with water. Now, MIT engineers have developed a mathematical model that can predict and simulate how the non-Newtonian fluid switches between liquid and solid depending on the pressure applied to it. From MIT News: Aside from predicting what the stuff might do in the hands of toddlers, the new model can be useful in predicting how oobleck and other solutions of ultrafi...

Predicting the past with the periodic table

Predicting the future is the pinnacle of what science can do. It’s impressive enough for a scientist to look at existing data and compose a theory explaining it. It’s even more impressive for a scientist to predict what data will look like before they are collected. The periodic table is central to chemistry precisely because it has both explanatory and predictive power.From the time the periodic table was first assembled, it has helped predict future chemical data. But the periodic table applie...

Scientists Are Stuck on the Mystery of Tape

There’s a certain patience required for studying sticky tape. Sure, sometimes experiments require peeling, but other times, researchers must simply sit around and wait for the adhesive to fail. These experiments are bringing scientists closer to something that doesn’t yet exist: a unified theory of tape.Read more...

The Periodic Table: It’s more than just chemistry and physics

I’m reprinting this from an email I got from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) today. It’s not 100% ham radio, but I think it should be of interest. Who knew that there was an “official” NIST periodic table?….Dan By Ben P. Stein This is the International Year of the Periodic Table, and while I’ve been (accurately) accused of being a physics fanboy, I’m here to tell you that this famous chart isn’t just about physics, chemistry and the other sciences. It’s also about math...

Psychedelics may be a powerful treatment for alcoholism

A survey supplied to 343 individuals showed that psychedelic drugs such as LSD or psilocybin may have serious benefits when it comes to treating alcoholism.The majority of the participants reported having severe alcoholism, but 83% of these individuals significantly reduced their drinking to more manageable levels after taking a psychedelic.This research underscores the potential that currently illegal drugs may have in as methods of treatment, but more research is needed to say so for certain. ...

Fruit juice can be twice as harmful as soda

A new study finds that the risk of all-cause mortality from over-consumption of fruit juice is significant. Other sugared beverages are still bad for you, but too much fruit juice is actually worse. Fructose, real or natural, is still fructose and problematic. None While fruit juice largely retains its reputation as a healthy thing for kids to drink, it's not exactly news that it can contain just as much sugar as sugar-sweetened beverages (SSBs) like soda. Savvy parents and caregivers know it ...

Beyond the Hype of Lab-Grown Diamonds

Billions of years ago when the world was still young, treasure began forming deep underground. As the edges of Earth’s tectonic plates plunged down into the upper mantle, bits of carbon, some likely hailing from long-dead life forms were melted and compressed into rigid lattices. Over millions of years, those lattices…Read more...

James Harris, the black scientist who helped discover two elements

The year 2019 is the 150th anniversary of the publication of Russian chemist Dmitri Mendeleev’s Periodic Table. The Periodic Table is a tabular arrangement of all elements. Mendeleev developed it to recognize patterns of the known elements. He also predicted that later scientists would fill in new elements in the gaps of his table. Today’s periodic table now provides a useful framework for analyzing chemical reactions and continues to be widely used in chemistry, nuclear physics, and other scien...

Plants that glow could illuminate tomorrow's buildings

MIT researchers who developed light-emitting plants are now exploring how the glowing greenery could be integrated into future building designs. In their proof-of-concept demonstration, the scientist packaged luciferase, the enzyme that enables fireflies to glow, into nanoparticles that were then suspended in solution. The plants were immersed in the solution and, through high pressure, the nanoparticles entered tiny pores in the plants' leaves. The plants maintained their glow for several hour...

There’s gold in your brain — we now know where it came from

A unique, tiny grain of stardust has provided a look at the early universe. Computer simulations point to a single neutron-star collision as a significant source of heavy metals. Gold is more than bling — it's in our neurons. None If you've got a thing for gold, you'd better have some money. Not only is the precious metal beautiful, but the amount of it in the universe is finite. A new study concludes that a single neutron star merger some 300 parsecs away produced a significant amount of it. ...

A New Storage Breakthrough Could Squeeze a Library's Worth of Data Into a Teaspoon of Protein

By 2020, researchers estimate that the world’s digital archive will weigh in at around 44 trillion gigabytes.

Most storage mediums naturally degrade over time (if they’re not hacked or accidentally destroyed) and even the …Read more...
