In a chemistry lab at the Friedrich Schiller University Jena (Germany), Prof. Dr. Alexander Schiller is developing what could be called the "sweetest computer in the world." The reason: the sugar molecules he uses are part of a chemical sequence for information processing.

Curiosity Rover

June 22, 2011 6:28 am | News | Comments

Recently the Mars Science Laboratory rover, Curiosity, has been in a space-simulation chamber at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Tests inside the 25-foot-diameter chamber (7.6-meters) put the rover through various sequences in environmental conditions resembling Martian surface conditions

U.S. Tsunami Capabilities and Local Preparedness Needs

June 14, 2011 7:06 am | News | Comments

The tsunami threat is often overlooked in the Atlantic basin because catastrophic events in that region have been rare. NOAA and its federal partners met on Capitol Hill with East Coast, Gulf and Caribbean state officials to discussed U.S. tsunami warning capabilities and the need for better local preparedness


Experiment Traps Antimatter for 1000 Seconds

June 8, 2011 9:27 am | News | Comments

The ALPHA experiment at CERN reported that it has succeeded in trapping antimatter atoms for over 16 minutes: long enough to begin to study their properties in detail. ALPHA is part of a broad program at CERN’s antiproton decelerator (AD) investigating the mysteries of one of nature’s most elusive substances

Long Live the Qubit

June 7, 2011 7:37 am | by Larry Hardesty, MIT News Office | News | Comments

A quantum computer is a device that could perform some types of calculations much more rapidly than classical computers. The power of quantum computers depends on keeping them in a fragile quantum-mechanical state — which researchers have found a new way to extend

Robot Ruby Wrecks Rubik's Record

June 1, 2011 10:12 am | News | Comments

The world's fastest Rubik's Cube-solving robot has been developed. The robot, named Ruby, can solve the scrambled puzzle in just over 10 seconds, including the time taken to scan the initial status of the cube

Jet Pack Soars to 5000ft but Could the Technology Ever be Practical?

June 1, 2011 7:27 am | News | Comments

The future of rocket pack travel is a step closer after the latest record?breaking test. The jet pack shot into the sky at a climb rate of 800ft per minute, reaching an altitude of 5,000 (previous record 100ft/min and 50ft altitude) before safely deploying the first ballistic jet pack parachute.

2D Graphene Brings Faster Electronics, Stronger Spacecraft and much more One Step Closer

May 26, 2011 11:59 am | by Holly B. Martin | News | Comments

Graphene consists of row upon row of hexagonal rings of carbon atoms fitted together in a flat honeycomb pattern only a single atom thick. This atomic scale makes graphene part of the nano-world, where objects a thousand times thinner than a human hair no longer follow familiar natural laws such as friction and gravity
