Study Blames Humans for Melting Glaciers

Thumbnail
Scientists looking at glacier melt since 1851 didn't see a human fingerprint until about the middle of the 20th century. Even then only one-quarter of the warming wasn't from natural causes. But since 1991, about 69 percent of the rapidly increasing melt was man-made.

Researchers ID ‘Switchboard’ Important in Attention, Sleep

Thumbnail
Researchers using a mouse model have recorded the activity of individual nerve cells in a small part of the brain that works as a “switchboard,” directing signals coming from the outside world or internal memories. Because human brain disorders typically show disturbances in that switchboard, the investigators say the work suggests new strategies in understanding and treating them.

Salt Bolsters Lithium Battery Life

Thumbnail
Chemical engineers have achieved a breakthrough in the race for safer, longer-lasting batteries to power the world’s automobiles, cell phones, computers and autonomous robots. Adding certain halide salts to liquid electrolytes spontaneously creates nanostructured surface coatings on a lithium battery anode. The coating hinders the development of detrimental dendritic structures that grow within the battery cell.
