New study finds coronaviruses are masters of mimicry, reproducing their host’s immune proteins to remain invisible and help promote infection.
Tiny moon shadows may harbor hidden stores of ice.
Astronomers record last moments of star as it’s devoured by a black hole and turned into “spaghetti”
New observations capture a star experiencing spaghettification as it’s sucked in by a supermassive black hole.
Computational chemistry is key to understanding the unusual properties of eumelanin.
Much like a zipper, carbene molecules cooperate on a gold surface to join two rows of atoms into one row, resulting — step by step — in a new surface structure.
Three laureates share this year’s Nobel prize in physics for their discoveries about one of the most exotic phenomena in the universe: the black hole.
New research is uncovering the importance of small predatory species in shaping ecosystems and managing threatened populations.
Researchers at Hokkaido University call into question the strong and stable image of the carbon-carbon single bond.
Where pneumococcal vaccination rates are high, COVID-19 cases are low and vice-versa.
Who were the vikings and where did they come from? Sequencing of skeletons allows researchers to understand Vikings through their genetic legacy.
Pressing a layered crystal onto a gold surface is all it takes to pull off a 2D atomic layer, a method that outperforms scotch tape on industrially relevant scales.
Solid-state physicists and materials chemists are now in excellent “shape” to expand and accelerate their explorations of the science of topological materials for a wide range of possible applications.
Light-activated proteins enable scientists to study and engineer subcellular structures for research and biotechnological applications.
