Our Best View Yet of Molecules Moving Inside Living Cells

hckpxoaw8xsxlnkpi5cw.gif

A new microscope developed by the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, Massachusetts is allowing scientists track the position and orientation of individual molecules in living cells. It has the potential to reveal unknown aspects of molecular behavior, including those that turn cells into agents of disease.

Rosetta goes out in a blaze of glory — and science

rosetta-homepage Let’s all take a moment and pour one out metaphorically for Rosetta, the pioneering spacecraft that gave our newly spacefaring race its first comet landing. The orbiter performed its final task early this morning, making a controlled crash into the comet’s surface, destroying itself in the process but gathering valuable data down to the last minute.

Earth's CO2 levels have permanently crossed the 400ppm threshold

589706730.jpgDespite the fact that September is typically the lowest month for atmospheric carbon dioxide, the CO2 levels in Earth's atmosphere crossed the symbolic 400 parts per million threshold this month. According to climate scientists, it is extremely unlik...

Thermal Photography Shows Even Pizza Emits Radiation

wugbahejhfpgjcv8usxe.png

These beautiful photographs of fast food were taken by Brea Souders using a radiometric thermal camera. They demonstrate that all matter with a temperature greater than absolute zero emits electromagnetic waves—no microwave oven required. And that Day-Glo Warholish quality is more than appropriate for junk food.

Making the case for a startup visa 

Chinese, USA and Shengen European visas in passports After failing to get their startup Udemy off the ground in their native Turkey, Eren Bali and Oktay Ca─člar headed to the U.S. in 2009. Both knew that in the U.S., specifically Silicon Valley, they could gain the support and traction Udemy needed. Yet Udemy was not enough to get them into the country: The U.S. doesn’t have a visa specifically for entrepreneurs eager to launch businesses. Read More

Our Atmosphere Is Leaking Oxygen and Scientists Don't Know Why

bvho6leryzjmktfxy70v.jpg

It’s nothing to lose sleep over—really, I promise—but Earth’s atmosphere is leaking oxygen. Atmospheric oxygen levels have dropped by 0.7 percent over the past 800,000 years, and while scientists aren’t sure why, they’re rather excited about it.

2017 F1 Cars Will Be 4.5 Seconds A Lap Quicker According To Pirelli

Current Formula One cars are seriously quick. You perhaps wouldn’t know it with the constant complaints about engine noise and how boring they are, but take a look at the lap times this year and you’ll see they are properly, properly fast.

Despite this though, F1 have felt the need to beef the cars up even more next year with huge old-school looking tyres and improved aerodynamics, something Pirelli’s Marco Tronchetti Provera thinks will make the cars a massive four-and-a-half seconds faster!

“In the coming season, the cars will be 4.5 seconds per lap faster according to our calculations,” said the Pirelli Chairman in this interview with Speedweek.

The new look Formula One cars have gone down hugely well with fans but they don’t just look great, 2.5 seconds of lap-time will come from the new wider Pirelli tyres and a further two from the more aggressive looking aero.

If that’s the case, we might even see records set during the 2004 season broken. Wowza!

The World's Largest Elevator Can Lift 6.7 Million Pounds of Ship

zhpnquxlxi6ncfiqt28e.gif

There are a lot of logistical problems that pop up when you build a 600-foot structure like the Three Gorges Dam in China’s Hubei province. For example, how do ships navigate the sudden extreme difference in water heights on either side of the dam? That’s an easy one. You just build the world’s largest elevator capable of lifting 6.7 million pounds of boat and water.
