Scientists show that a thin layer of plasma, created by ionizing air, could be promising as an active sound absorber, with applications in noise control and room acoustics.

While water vapor was previously detected in the atmosphere of exoplanet WASP-18b-an ultrahot gas giant 10 times more massive than Jupiter-University of Michigan scientists have confirmed that NASA's James Webb Space Telescope unveiled once-hidden water features that had eluded the ground-based Hubble Space Telescope.

Astronomers discover the last three planets the Kepler telescope observed before going dark.

Researchers at EPFL have found a way to study water in "no man's land," a subzero temperature range where water crystallizes rapidly. Historically, the inability to access "no man's land" has prevented researchers from unriddling the anomalous nature of water, but the breakthrough method can now change that.

The small, distant galaxy JD1 is typical of the kind that burned through hydrogen left over from the Big Bang Science + Technology The small, distant galaxy JD1 is typical of the kind that burned through hydrogen left over from the Big Bang After the Big Bang, the universe expanded and cooled sufficiently for hydrogen atoms to form.

Using the Canadian NIRISS instrument on the James Webb Space Telescope, astrophysics PhD candidate Louis-Philippe Coulombe has mapped the atmosphere of the intriguing exoplanet WASP-18 b. There's an intriguing exoplanet out there - 400 light-years out there - that is so tantalising that astronomers have been studying it since its discovery in 2009.

Selecting the right method gives users a more accurate picture of how their model is behaving, so they are better equipped to correctly interpret its predictions.

Proteins are biological molecules that perform almost all biochemical tasks in all forms of life. In doing so, the tiny structures perform ultra-fast movements. In order to investigate these dynamic processes more precisely than before, researchers have developed a new algorithm that can be used to evaluate measurements at X-ray free-electron lasers such as the SwissFEL more efficiently. They have now presented it in the journal Structural Dynamics .

Either 1 or 0. Either current flows or it does not. In electronics, everything is controlled via the binary system.
