Hacking a pressure sensor to track gradual motion along marine faults
Deep below the ocean's surface, shielded from satellite signals, the gradual movement of the seafloor - including along faults that can unleash deadly earthquakes and tsunamis - goes largely undetected. As a result, we know distressingly little about motion along the fault that lies just off the Pacific Northwest coast.

10 quadrillionths of a second to extraction: Researchers set time limit for ultrafast perovskite solar cells
Researchers have quantified the astonishingly high speeds at which future solar cells would have to operate in order to stretch what are presently seen as natural limits on their energy conversion efficiency. The timescale that we calculated is now the time limit that we have to operate within if we want to create super-efficient, hot carrier solar devices.

Dino-killing asteroid sped up bird evolution
Human activities could change the pace of evolution, similar to what occurred 66 million years ago when a giant asteroid wiped out the dinosaurs, leaving modern birds as their only descendants. That's one conclusion drawn by the authors of a new study just published in  Systematic Biology. Dr Daniel Field from the Milner Centre for Evolution at the University of Bath and Cornell PhD candidate Jacob Berv suggest that the meteor-induced mass extinction (a.k.a.
