Saturn and Its Moons Have Water Just Like Earth’s — Except for Phoebe

Although we weren’t here to observe the birth of our own solar system, astronomers have developed a relatively informed picture of how it likely happened, based on observations of our present-day home and the infant planets forming around other stars. But every so often, something throws a wrench in our theories, and that may have just happened — [...] Read more

Study provides insight into how nanoparticles interact with biological systems

Findings can help scientists engineer nanoparticles that are ‘benign by design’. |SOURCE| Personal electronic devices -- smartphones, computers, TVs, tablets, screens of all kinds -- are a significant and growing source of the world’s electronic waste. Many of these products use nanomaterials, but little is known about how these modern materials [...] Read more

Bose Einstein condensate may reveal supersolid’s secrets

BEC droplets form crystal that may have supersolid-like properties. |SOURCE| Bose Einstein condensates (BECs) have been around for more than 20 years now. One of the best applications of the BEC, it turns out, is as a tool to explore other quantum things, like solids—yes, the properties of solids are determined by quantum mechanics. Among those [...] Read more
