Science of squeezed oranges may help detection of failing bridges
By studying the mechanics of a squeezed orange and its unique multilayered peel, scientists may be able to more accurately predict bridge failures or develop new ways to deliver medicine.
Not quite a 'double bind' for minority women in science
Many studies have shown that both minority and women scientists face disadvantages in reaching the highest levels of their careers.
Minister: Book helps develop cultural ties, science
Books provide an opportunity for scientific development and cultural relations, said Iran's culture minister.
Researchers turn to electronic medical records
Sydney researchers believe untapped electronic medical records could be used to predict when a person is at risk of developing type two diabetes (T2D).
Can science of autophagy boost your health?
A little-known scientific process is being hailed as the new way to lose weight, look younger and prolong life.
Star Wars' cutest droids would get stuck on the beach
R2D2 and BB-8 never seem to let anything hold them back, even when faced with vast, terrifying desert planets. R2D2 trundles cheerfully across the sands of Tatooine. BB-8 takes his own sandy trek on Jakku. Sadly, such scenarios aren’t realistic. Not because Star Wars is fiction (though it is). It’s because a droid with wheels has no place on a desert planet.
Dark energy’s weakness may be why supernovae didn’t kill us all
That you exist in the Universe is pretty obvious, at least to yourself. But now researchers have used the fact that human observers are alive — and haven’t been zapped into oblivion by supernova explosions — to account for the puzzling weakness of dark energy, the mysterious force accelerating the expansion of the Universe.
‘Time crystals’ created in two new types of materials
A weird form of matter called a time crystal has made an appearance in two more types of materials, doubling the number of known time crystal habitats. In a typical crystal, its arrangement of atoms regularly repeats in space, such as the alternating sodium and chloride ions that make up a salt crystal. But time crystals’ patterns repeat themselves at regular time intervals.
First smallpox treatment one step closer to FDA approval
As bioterrorism fears grow, the first treatment for smallpox is nearing approval.
Researcher to direct CIHR institute tasked with fighting infectious diseases
It’s the first time the university will host a CIHR institute.
Australia set to create nation’s first space agency
Australia is set to announce the country’s first space agency. Although the emphasis will apparently be on the commercial utilization of space, researchers are hoping there will be purely scientific efforts as well.
US environment agency proposes limits to science used in rulemaking
The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed a rule that would limit the kinds of scientific research it can use in crafting regulations, an apparent concession to big business that has long requested such restrictions.
Your grandchildren may retire before we have gender equality in science
Gender parity in some areas of the science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine (STEMM) workforce could be centuries away, unless we systematically identify and close the gender gap.
Science behind cancer warnings on coffee is murky at best
Californians will soon be taking their coffee with cream and a cancer warning, after a court ruled that the state’s retailers must label coffee as containing a carcinogen.
Rethinking how the media cover science
One of the recurring media narratives about the nature of science today is that it is ‘broken’ or ‘in crisis’. In the mainstream press, some stories about the failure to reproduce study results or the rising retraction rate or incidents of scientific fraud have been accompanied by assertions about a ‘systemic crisis’ in areas of science — or in science itself.
