A NASA-MIT Lincoln Laboratory team will forge the first laser communication link between Mars and Earth. This unique experiment, part of NASA's Vision for Space Exploration, will greatly benefit the transmission of data from robotic spacecraft
Vulnerabilities inadvertently built into the U.S. power grid, which is one of the most complex systems ever constructed, have been identified by a research team lead by Reka Albert, assistant professor of physics at Penn State.
Flawed software code used by numerous Microsoft applications to render images mean that a specially constructed image file could hijack a computer or spread a virus.
NASA's Genesis spacecraft is set to swing by Earth and jettison a sample return capsule filled with particles of the Sun that may ultimately tell us more about the genesis of our solar system. "The Genesis mission to capture a piece of the Sun and return it to Earth is
A new mathematical approach for analyzing the complex, subtle patterns of natural mutation in DNA is likely to help biologists understand how mutation contributes to evolutionary change in mammals.The researchers, Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator Philip Green and his student Dick Hwang, published a report describing the first applications of
Harmful contaminants often taint drinking water drawn directly from a river, but a low-cost natural filter may lie just beyond the banks. Johns Hopkins researchers have found that the soil alongside a river can remove dangerous microbes and organic material as water flows through it
Thermo Electron Corporation has completed the acquisition of InnaPhase Corporation, a premier supplier of Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) for the pharmaceutical and biotechnology markets, for approximately $65 million in cash, subject to a post-closing adjustment. Headquartered in
White blood cells are principal players in immune system function. Yet efforts to influence their role in illness have been hampered by a lack of understanding of the surface structure of these mediator cells until now
The New Zealand Supercomputing Centre, launched this week, has already attracted interest from potential clients in New York, says Telecom hosting and storage manager Eric Pilon.
In an effort to put more science into the largely trial and error building of nanostructures, physicists at the Commerce Department's National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have demonstrated new methods for placing what are typically
