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.

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.
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.
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!(C) Pirelli
“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!

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.
