Long-lost letter from Albert Einstein discusses a link between physics and biology, seven decades before evidence emerges
A recently discovered letter written by Albert Einstein discusses a link between physics and biology, seven decades before evidence emerges.
So a helicopter flew on Mars for the first time. A space physicist explains why that’s such a big deal
Flying the Ingenuity helicopter on Mars is the equivalent of flying one at about 100,000 feet on Earth. Tricky, considering the highest helicopter flight ever recorded maxed out at 42,000 feet.
Superbug killer: New nanotech destroys bacteria and fungal cells
Researchers have developed a new superbug-destroying coating that could be used on wound dressings and implants to prevent and treat potentially deadly bacterial and fungal infections.
Science takes guesswork out of cheese production and reduces waste
Researchers are helping take the guesswork out of cheese manufacturing by using science to better predict and control the ripening process.
