Groundbreaking research shows that the limits of nuclear stability change in stellar environments

Untitled-design-9
 New research is challenging the scientific status quo on the limits of the nuclear chart in hot stellar environments where temperatures reach billions of degrees Celsius.The nuclear chart is a way to map out different kinds of atomic nuclei based on their number of protons and neutrons, and the "drip lines" can be viewed as the boundaries or ...

Asian oysters are dominant on Sweden’s west coast

Stillahavsostron_250-dpi-foto-Youk-Greeve
 The Pacific oyster has taken over in the Swedish west coast county of Bohuslän. Researchers at the University of Gothenburg have found that the invasive species accounts for two-thirds of the biomass of all mussel and oyster species. This is not necessarily a bad thing, except for beachgoers, who can cut themselves easily on the razor-sharp s...

A solar hydrogen system that co-generates heat and oxygen

1108x622
 A parabolic dish on the EPFL campus is easily overlooked, resembling a satellite dish or other telecommunications infrastructure. But this dish is special, because it works like an artificial tree. After concentrating solar radiation nearly 1,000 times, a reactor above the dish uses that sunlight to convert water into valuable and renewable h...
