3D-printed lithium-ion batteries

LED bangle, including a lithium-ion battery, was made entirely by 3D printing

Electric vehicles and most electronic devices, such as cell phones and laptop computers, are powered by lithium-ion batteries. Until now, manufacturers have had to design their devices around the size and shape of commercially available batteries. But researchers have developed a new method to 3-D print lithium-ion batteries in virtually

This Physicist’s Ideas Of Time Will Blow Your Mind

Physicist’s Ideas Of Time

Time feels real to people. But it doesn’t even exist, according to quantum physics. “There is no time variable in the fundamental equations that describe the world,” theoretical physicist Carlo Rovelli tells Quartz.If you met him socially, Rovelli wouldn’t assault you with abstractions and math to prove this point.He’d “rather

The Milky Way Could Be Spreading Life From Star to Star

For almost two centuries, scientists have theorized that life may be distributed throughout the Universe by meteoroids, asteroids, planetoids, and other astronomical objects. This theory, known as Panspermia, is based on the idea that microorganisms and the chemical precursors of life are able to survive being transported from one star

Stephen Hawking’s Final Work Completed and Published by Colleagues


The world lost a great mind when legendary theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking passed away last March. However, it seems that even in his absence the beloved scientist continues to contribute to our understanding of the cosmos.Just five months ago his final theory on the origin of the universe was published stipulating

Making head or tail of a galactic landscape

X-ray astronomy

Astronomers have used data from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory to capture a dramatic image of an enormous tail of hot gas stretching for more than a million light years behind a group of galaxies that is falling into the depths of an even-larger cluster of galaxies. Discoveries like this help

Four extremely young asteroid families identified

Brazilian researchers dated the families using a numerical simulation method to process current data to go back in time to the asteroid formation era

Four families of extremely young asteroids have been identified by researchers affiliated with São Paulo State University (UNESP) in Guaratinguetá, Brazil. An article on the discovery has been published in Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.The group is led by Italian-born physicist Valerio Carruba, currently a professor in UNESP’s
