A Mysterious New Species of Early Human Hiding in from our sight

More Than 20 years Ago archeologists discovered these fossils, Decades of research, analysis reveals interestings things to the world. |SOURCE| A series of four pre-printed papers suggests that Little Foot could be a species of Australopithecus we have never seen before. These fossil may be one of the earliest signs of human-like species ever [...] 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

Scientists demonstrate simpler way to turn two-layer graphene system into a superconductor

Researchers in Germany have built on previous work by MIT to create a flat band in graphene. |SOURCE| Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin Fur Materialien Und Energie (HZB) have discovered a new way to enable a two-layer graphene system to conduct electricity like a superconductor. Graphene is an allotrope of carbon, consisting of a sheet of [...] Read more
