Study: Pointed tips on aluminum 'octopods' increase catalytic reactivity Points matter when designing nanoparticles that drive important chemical reactions using the power of light. A study of aluminum nanocatalysts by Rice University's Laboratory for Nanophotonics found that octopods (left), six-sided particles with sharply pointed corners, had a reaction rate five times higher than nanocubes (center) and 10 times higher than 14-sided nanocrystals.

Following extensive observations of stellar winds around cool evolved stars scientists have figured out how planetary nebulae get their mesmerizing shapes. The findings, published in Science , contradict common consensus, and show that not only are stellar winds aspherical, but they also share similarities with planetary nebulae.

Security software for autonomous vehicles - Before autonomous vehicles participate in road traffic, they must demonstrate conclusively that they do not pose a danger to others. New software developed at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) prevents accidents by predicting different variants of a traffic situation every millisecond.
