The universe caught suppressing cosmic structure growth
An artist's representation of matter in the early universe slowly coalescing into large cosmic structures in the late universe. As the universe evolves, scientists expect large cosmic structures to grow at a certain rate: dense regions such as galaxy clusters would grow denser, while the void of space would grow emptier.

What the wealthy consider ’fair’ may not be equal to others
Wealthy Americans have distinct preferences regarding fairness, with a greater willingness to accept inequalities relative to the general public, according to a new University of Michigan study. The findings, which appear in the Journal of Public Economics, provide new insights into the reasons behind the wealthy opposing government redistribution.

Groundwater depletion rates in India could triple in coming decades as climate warms
Groundwater depletion rates in India could triple in coming decades as climate warms, study shows A farmer plows his irrigated cotton field in Gujarat, India. A new University of Michigan-led study finds that farmers in India have adapted to warming temperatures by intensifying the withdrawal of groundwater used for irrigation.

Rare disease shares mechanism with cystic fibrosis
University of Michigan researchers have discovered that the same cellular mechanism involved in a form of cystic fibrosis is also implicated in a form of a rare disease called cystinosis. The mechanism cleans up mutated proteins. In cystinosis, a genetic disease, this allows cystine crystals to build up in the cell.

Tuning the tension: Negative feedback could moderate extreme views on social media, per U-M research
"Downvotes” and "dislikes” from peers could moderate extreme rhetoric and mitigate echo chambers among social media users, according to new research from the University of Michigan. The study finds such "feedback can serve as the whip that regulates the polarization of opinions by encouraging users to moderate their tone.

A giant black hole destroys a massive star
A University of Michigan astronomer has made a thorough forensic study of a star that was torn apart when it ventured too close to a giant black hole and then had its insides tossed out into space. The research team used NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory and ESA's XMM-Newton to study the amount of nitrogen and carbon near a black hole known to have torn apart a star.

Nearly zero-waste solution for construction: Reusable robotic 3D-printed formwork from upcycled sawdust
The BioMatters team at the University of Michigan has developed a fully biodegradable, reusable and recyclable material to replace the wasteful concrete formwork traditionally used across the construction industry. The base of this material is upcycled sawdust-millions of tons of sawdust waste are created each year from the 15 billion cut trees and often burned or dumped in landfills left to contribute to environmental pollution.

A POT-hole that protects our chromosome ends
Study: Human POT1 protects the telomeric ds-ss DNA junction by capping the 5′-end of the chromosome Researchers have determined a new feature of how the natural ends of our chromosomes are protected from harmful outcomes. In a new study, University of Michigan researchers looked at how the DNA damage recognition process seems to know the difference between harmful DNA breaks that need repair versus the natural ends of chromosomes, called telomeres, that need to be left alone.

Muon collaboration explores uncharted territory in search of new physics
A subatomic particle called the muon, a particle similar to an electron but about 200 times heavier, could unlock how the physicists' model that describes how the universe works at a fundamental level is incomplete. Now, scientists have a brand-new measurement of a property of the muon called the anomalous magnetic moment that improves the precision of their previous result by a factor of 2.

Cracking in lithium-ion batteries speeds up electric vehicle charging
Cracks in predominant lithium-ion electrodes shorten battery lifespans, but a neuroscience-inspired technique shows that they have an upside Study: Direct measurements of size-independent lithium diffusion and reaction times in individual polycrystalline battery particles (DOI: 10.1039/D3EE00953J) Rather than being solely detrimental, cracks in the positive electrode of lithium-ion batteries reduce battery charge time, research done at the University of Michigan shows.
