Scientists enlist baker's yeast in a hunt for new medicines

One of the hardest parts in drug discovery is pinning down how a medicine actually works in the body. It took nearly 100 years to uncover the molecular target of aspirin, but even with cutting-edge technology, it can take years to untangle how drugs interfere with cells. Show More Summary

Escherichia coli bacteria hijack copper, feed off it

Copper has long been known for its ability to kill bacteria and other microbes.

NASA mission surfs through waves in space to understand space weather

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA's Van Allen Probes have observed a new population of space sound waves, called plasmaspheric hiss, which are important in removing high-energy particles from around Earth that can damage satellites.

Scientists spy new evidence of water in the Moon's interior
