Thin layer of picene molecules attached to a silver surface maintain their structure and function, demonstrating potential for electronic applications
The emerging field of molecular electronics could take our definition of portable to the next level, enabling the construction of tiny circuits from molecular...
The area of sea ice in the Arctic fell to a summer minimum of around 5.0 million square kilometres this year, which is about 1.6 million square kilometres more...
Sea lamprey studies show remarkably conserved gene expression patterns in jawless vs. jawed vertebrates
If you never understood what "ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny" meant in high school, don't worry: biologists no longer think that an animal's "ontogeny", that...
The surface of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko can be divided into several morphologically different regions
High-resolution images of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko reveal a unique, multifaceted world. ESA's Rosetta spacecraft arrived at its destination about a...
Astronomers searching the atmospheres of alien worlds for gases that might be produced by life can't rely on the detection of just one type, such as oxygen, ozone, or methane, because in some cases these gases can be produced non-biologically, according to extensive simulations by researchers in the NASA Astrobiology Institute’s Virtual Planetary Laboratory.
The researchers carefully simulated the atmospheric chemistry of alien worlds devoid of life thousands of times over a period of more than four years, varying...
