Chemists unveil cheaper, more efficient carbon capture technology

Carbon technologyA team of scientists in England have found a better way to capture carbon from power plant emissions.

The key to their new and improved technique is patented carbon-derived biomass material called Starbons. Starbons, which was pioneered a decade ago by scientists at the University of York, is made using biomass waste like food peelings and seaweed. Its key attribute is its porosity. Lots of tiny holes allow Starbons to capture lots of CO2.

NASA's Juno spacecraft enters Jupiter's magnetic field

Jupiter's magnetic fieldNearly five years ago, NASA's Juno spacecraft left Earth headed for Jupiter. This week, it reached one of its first scientific milestones -- entering the gas giant's magnetosphere, or magnetic field.

"We've just crossed the boundary into Jupiter's home turf," Scott Bolton, the mission's principal investigator and a scientist at the Southwest Research Institute, confirmed in a news release. "We're closing in fast on the planet itself and already gaining valuable data."

NASA reveals solar system Internet for interplanetary communication

Interplanetary InternetA new system deployed by NASA is expected to help the development of an interplanatery space communications system that functions much like the Internet does on Earth.

NASA installed software on the International Space Station to make communication faster and easier, and it is expected to lead to an Internet system that may cover the entire solar system in the future, the agency announced.

The San Andreas Fault Is Definitely Showing Signs Of Large-Scale Movement

San Andreas fault shows movementWhen the fault line starts rockin’... run for the hills!

New observations confirm that the San Andreas Fault System, the massive tectonic boundary underneath much of California, is showing definite signs of movement, according to a post at the University of Hawaii’s website.

In data collected from the EarthScope Plate Boundary Observatory, a series of hundreds of measuring stations scattered throughout Alaska and the American West, researchers have found evidence of 125-mile-wide “lobes” of uplift and subsidence — that is, plates of land moving over and under one another.

China builds world's most powerful computer

China has world's most powerful computerA new supercomputer from China has topped the latest list of the world's most powerful machines.

The 93 petaflop Sunway TaihuLight is installed at the National Supercomputing Centre in Wuxi.

At its peak, the computer can perform around 93,000 trillion calculations per second.
It is twice as fast and three times as efficient as the previous leader Tianhe-2, also from China, said Top500 which released the new list on Monday.

Scientists find molecule light-years away that could explain Earth's origin

molecule linked to earth's originA molecule used to create plastic might hold the key to Earth's origins.

Scientists recently discovered a chiral molecule inside a gas cloud located 28,000 light-years away from Earth, and believe it shed some light on how life formed on Earth.

Universe is expanding up to 9% faster than we thought, say scientists

Universe is expandind faster than thoughtThe universe is expanding faster than anyone had previously measured or calculated from theory. This is a discovery that could test part of Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity, a pillar of cosmology that has withstood challenges for a century.

Nasa and the European Space Agency jointly announced the universe is expanding 5% to 9% faster than predicted, a finding they reached after using the Hubble space telescope to measure the distance to stars in 19 galaxies beyond theMilky Way.

The rate of expansion did not match predictions based on measurements of radiation left over from the Big Bang that gave rise to the known universe 13.8bn years ago.
