Examining why locusts form destructive swarms
Researchers at Tel Aviv University found that the microbiome of a solitary locust undergoes a profound change when the host joins a group: bacteria called Weissella, almost completely absent from the microbiome of solitary locusts, become dominant in the gregarious phase. Moreover, a specially developed mathematical model indicates that swarming provides these bacteria with potential evolutionary advantages...
Scientists have managed to create a particle-antiparticle pair from a vacuum
For the first time in history, scientists from the University of Manchester conducted direct experimental observations of the so-called Schwinger effect, an elusive effect that can occur only in the field of high-energy cosmic events, such as supernova explosions, collisions of neutron stars and black holes. By applying electric currents with a very high potential to specially designed graphene devices, sci...
MSU chemists have increased the efficiency of hydrogen generators almost to the maximum
Employees of the Faculty of Chemistry of Moscow State University have improved the reaction of interaction of magnesium hydride with water, promising for the generation of hydrogen, which is used in fuel cells. The authors found that the addition of alkali metal salts, ammonium and /or magnesium increases the yield of hydrogen from 22% to almost 100%, while the rate of hydrogen flow increases eight times. ...
A new tool will help to create cellular maps of the human body
An international group of scientists, which included a Moscow State University student, proposed a new tool for mapping cell types in body tissues based on cellular and spatial transcriptomics data. The use of information about the amount of RNA synthesized by each cell type, combined with modern computational methods, allows us to study the fine structure of tissues with a sensitivity that was not previous...
The most "sticky" adhesive material has been created, which is the most durable adhesive to date
Scientists from the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) have developed a new material that has the strongest adhesive properties to date, i.e. ability to adhere to the surface of other materials. And the adhesive composition created on the basis of this material is the most durable adhesive to date, the gluing place, with an area of ​​\u200b\u200bonly one square centimeter, withstands a rupture force of 13...
The first chip for molecular electronics has been developed
The first molecular electronics chip has been developed for the first time, realizing the 50-year-old goal of integrating single molecules into circuits to reach the limits of Moore's Law scaling.Developed by Roswell Biotechnologies and an interdisciplinary team of leading academic scientists, the chip uses individual molecules as versatile sensor elements in circuitry to create a programmable biosensor wit...
Interview: As millions fall behind, how can we bridge the growing education gap?
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating effect on education, laying bare a crisis that was already causing widespread concern well before the spread of the virus. Robert Jenkins, the Director of Education at the UN Children’s Fund, UNICEF, is calling for a transformation in learning, amid warnings that the current system is failing millions of people.Mr. Jenkins spoke to Conor Lennon from UN News ahead ...
