Air pollution fine particles linked to poor sperm quality

11 hours agoHealth : Reuters: Health

(Reuters Health) - Exposure to fine particles in air pollution may be another factor that affects men’s sperm quality and their fertility, suggest researchers in Taiwan.

Doomed Cassini Spacecraft Reveals Saturn's Rings Cast a Shadow, Blocking Sun's Ultraviolet Radiation

Data collected by the Cassini spacecraft, before it was deliberately crashed into Saturn's atmosphere in September 2017, show that the planet's illustrious rings are casting a shadow in ionized particles over the planet. Cassini has transmitted a hoard of valuable...        

AGU Fall Meeting: New simulations suggest meteors explode from the inside

(American Geophysical Union) Researchers have identified an explosive new mechanism that breaks down meteors as they hurtle toward Earth. New simulations of falling meteors suggest air particles penetrate the space rocks' porous interiors as they careen through the atmosphere. Show More Summary

Watch ‘Glitter,’ Don’t Use It: Scientist Calls for Ban on Sparkles

18 hours agoTechnology / Gadgets : Geek.com

All that glitters is not gold, according to scientists. More than an arts-and-crafts staple or shiny nightmare for festival clean-up crews, the reflective particles are also an ecological hazard. Environmental anthropologist Trisia Farrelly […] The post Watch ‘Glitter,’ Don’t Use It: Scientist Calls for Ban on Sparkles appeared first on Geek.com.

Learning with LEGO

Particle Physics Brick By Brick, is the latest funky attempt to make particle physics more palatable, writes Matin Durrani

Diving into the unknown: What's physics after the Higgs boson?

(Aalto University) Thousands of researchers at the CERN research centre are looking for particles and phenomena that standard physics cannot explain. Aalto University doctoral student Juska Pekkanen is part of a group working with the highest collision energies ever achieved.

The Brilliant 'Particle Mace' May Get Updated for 64-Bit and the Developer is Seeking Out Beta Testers

Over the past decade I've grown to love a lot of iPhone games, but there's a handful of games that I love on a whole different level, like I SUPER DUPER LOVE them. Andy Wallace's Particle Mace [$2.99] is one of those games. Released in early 2015, Particle Mace on first blush looks like your

Spontaneous Bose-Einstein condensation of excitons

Excitons are pairs of electrons and holes inside a solid material that together behave like a single particle. It has long been suspected that when many such excitons exist in the same piece of matter, they can form a single giant quantum...Show More Summary

Physicists tune the dynamics of exotic quantum particles

Physicists at West Virginia University have discovered a way to control a newly discovered quantum particle, potentially leading to faster computers and other electronic devices.

Scientists study 'smart' magnetic gel in a magnetic field

Magnetic gels are the new generation of "smart" composite materials. They consist of a polymer medium and nano- or micro-dimensional magnetic particles embedded in it. These composites are frequently used in magnetically controlled shock...Show More Summary

Measuring small forces that lead to large effects

Forces between individual particles in slurries are responsible for their rheological behavior. Direct quantification of physical forces between mineral faces is now possible with atomic force microscopy, thanks to work at IDREAM, an Energy Frontier Research Center (EFRC) funded by DOE's Office of Science, Basic Energy Sciences.

New manifestation of magnetic monopoles discovered

(Institute of Science and Technology Austria) While magnetic monopoles in the form of elementary particles remain elusive, there have been some recent successes in engineering objects that behave effectively like magnetic monopoles.Show More Summary

SuperTIGER balloon flies again to study heavy cosmic particles

A science team in Antarctica is preparing to loft a balloon-borne instrument to collect information on cosmic rays, high-energy particles from beyond the solar system that enter Earth's atmosphere every moment of every day. The instrument,...Show More Summary

How does it look when Earth is bombarded with dark matter?

University of Southern Denmark researchers have conducted simulations of dark matter particles hitting the Earth. Physicists believe that Earth collides with uncountable dark matter particles as it hurtles through space. Although no one has ever seen these mysterious particles, there is no question among physicists about their existence. Show More Summary

NASA's SuperTIGER balloon flies again to study heavy cosmic particles

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) A science team in Antarctica is preparing to fly SuperTIGER, a balloon-borne instrument designed to collect heavy high-energy particles from beyond the solar system that constantly bombard Earth's atmosphere.

How does it look when Earth is bombarded with dark matter?

(University of Southern Denmark) A whole lot of zig-zagging: Perhaps that is what happens when the universe's mysterious dark matter particles hit the Earth. SDU researchers can now show through simulations how it might look.

Once And For All, Here’s How To Keep Your Winter Coats Lint-Free

6 days agoLifestyle / Fashion : SheFinds

What’s more annoying than breaking out your winter coat only to have it covered in lint? How about having that same coat littered with fuzzy particles each time you pull it out or wash it. Yes, ’tis the season for static cling! Though, you don’t have to keep worrying about those pesky lint pieces. There are […]
