Astronaut, Cosmonaut Set for Record-breaking ISS Stay

 
 
Featured Story  

This afternoon, Scott Kelly and Mikhail Kornienko will launch to the ISS, beginning a one-year mission in space, testing the limits of human research, space exploration and the human spirit. While Scott Kelly is in space, his identical twin brother, retired NASA astronaut Mark Kelly, will participate in a number of comparative genetic studies. A number of spaceflight endurance records will be broken during the mission.

Today in Lab History: Great Alaskan Earthquake

Thumbnail

On March 27, 1964, at 5:36 PM AST the most powerful recorded megathrust earthquake in North American history occurred. Falling on Good Friday, it lasted for four minutes and 38 seconds and had a moment magnitude of 9.2, making it the third strongest earthquake in recorded history.

HIV Can Evolve in Brain Early in Illness

Thumbnail

The AIDS virus can genetically evolve and independently replicate in patients' brains early in the illness process. An analysis of cerebral spinal fluid, a window into brain chemical activity, revealed that, for a subset of patients, HIV had started replicating within the brain within the first four months of infection.

Tissue Samples Can Be Painted with Light

Thumbnail

One infrared scan can give pathologists a window into the structures and molecules inside tissues and cells, enabling fast and broad diagnostic assessments, thanks to an imaging technique. Using a combination of advanced microscope imaging and computer analysis, the new technique can give pathologists and researchers precise information without using chemical stains or dyes.

Antarctic Ice Thinned Rapidly Over Two Decades

Thumbnail

A new study has revealed that the thickness of Antarctica’s floating ice shelves has recently decreased by as much as 18 percent in certain areas over nearly two decades, providing new insights on how the Antarctic ice sheet is responding to climate change.

Graphene Makes Square Water

Thumbnail

Researchers have created a transparent nanoscale capillary out of graphene to investigate the atomic structure of water trapped inside. They used high magnification electron microscopy that allowed them to see individual water molecules. To their surprise, the scientists found small square crystals of ice at room temperature, provided the graphene capillaries were narrow enough, allowing no more than three atomic layers of water.

Climate Target 'Utterly Inadequate'

Thumbnail

The official global target of a 2 C temperature rise is “utterly inadequate” for protecting those at most risk from climate change, says a lead author on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, writing a commentary in the open access journal Climate Change Responses. The commentary presents a rare inside-view of a two-day discussion at the Lima Conference of the Parties.

Method Yields Quality-control Tool for Nanocomposites

Thumbnail

Layered nanocomposites containing tiny structures mixed into a polymer matrix are gaining commercial use, but their complex nature can hide defects that affect performance. Now, researchers have developed a system capable of detecting such defects using a "Kelvin probe" scanning method with an atomic force microscope.

Stage Optimizes Electron, Correlative Microscopy Workflow

Thumbnail

Scientists must maintain specific environmental conditions when viewing live cells and chemical processes. The temperature-controlled CMS196 Correlative Microscopy Stage by Linkam Scientific Instruments allows scientists to keep a sample vitrified at a constant –196 C in its own chamber, avoiding contamination, while enabling the full workflow of CLEM.
