Some species of butterfly rely on shade to regulate their body temperature when it gets too hot.
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.
The gravitational push and pull by Jupiter’s moons could account for more warming than the gas giant Jupiter alone.
While studying asteroid Bennu up close, NASA’s OSIRIS-REx spacecraft witnessed periodic outbursts of material being kicked up from the surface; a dedicated observation campaign revealed details of the activity.
Similar to eukaryotes, prokaryotic cells can spatiotemporally regulate localization of RNAs, which is crucial for the survival and proper function of these tiny organisms.
New observations allowed astronomers to see, for the first time, the shadow of GW Orionis’ inner ring, which helped them figure out its 3D orientation.
It seems that not all nanoparticles attract a protein corona.
New study provides the best estimate to date that bacteria could survive a trip to Mars.
