The mystery of Antarctica's Blood Falls has been solved

A bloody mystery’s been solved. But it took over 100-years to figure out what's going on inside a glacier in Antarctica. |SOURCE| Using echolocation to track the water flow, the researchers discovered a 5 million-year-old lake beneath Taylor Glacier. According to the scientists, when the lake water makes its way to the surface – a process that [...] Read more

Seeing the electricity inside graphene for the first time

In the race towards faster and smarter next-generation electronics, including quantum computers, researchers at the University of Melbourne are the first in the world to image how electrons move in two-dimensional graphene. |SOURCE| Made up of a lattice of carbon atoms only one atom thick, graphene is a key material for the electronics of the [...] Read more

The world’s fastest film camera: when light practically stands still

Forget high-speed cameras capturing 100 000 images per second. A research group at Lund University in Sweden has developed a camera that can film at a rate equivalent to five trillion images per second, or events as short as 0.2 trillionths of a second. This is faster than has previously been possible. |SOURCE| The new super-fast film camera will [...] Read more

Scientists Have Observed Epigenetic Memories Being Passed Down for 14 Generations

|SOURCE| The most important set of genetic instructions we all get comes from our DNA, passed down through generations. But the environment we live in can make genetic changes, too. Researchers have now discovered that these kinds of environmental genetic changes can be passed down for a whopping 14 generations in an animal – the largest span ever [...] Read more
