© Daniel Stier at Twenty Twenty and Miren Marañón at East Photographic for Mosaic More Lucy Gilliam has an infectious passion for environmental action. Today, she works in Brussels on environmental transport policy. But in the early 2000s, she was a molecular microbiologist in Hertfordshire. Like many in her field, Gilliam got through a lot

Credit: CC0 Public Domain More Astonishingly, not one but two interstellar asteroids have been detected entering our solar system since 2017. The first was given the Hawaiian name “Oumuamua, meaning “messenger from afar,” after its discovery by Canadian astronomer Robert Weryk. The second, 2I/Borisov, was named for its discoverer Gennadiy Borisov. Paul Wiegert from Western

It is the one of numerous small missions planned as part of ESA’s Technology Strategy, being presented at this month’s Space19+ Council at Ministerial Level. This is a suitcase-sized nanospacecraft

A large bushfire in the Wollemi National Park near Lithgow, west of Sydney More Dozens of bushfires raged out of control across eastern Australia on Friday, blocking escape routes for residents and shuttering the main highway linking major cities on the country’s Pacific coast. More than 90 blazes pockmarked the New South Wales countryside, 50

The profile of an electron beam at Berkeley Lab’s Advanced Light Source synchrotron, represented as pixels measured by a charged coupled device (CCD) sensor. When stabilized by a machine-learning algorithm, the beam has a horizontal size dimension of 49 microns root mean squared and vertical size dimension of 48 microns root mean squared.

Credit: CC0 Public Domain More The majority of high-quality medical and science journals require disclosure of possible conflicts of interest (COI). However, a new study suggests that such disclosures have no impact on journal reviewers, even when the authors of submitted papers did, in fact, report conflicts. The study also found that reviewers’ evaluations of

Researchers from Aarhus University, Denmark, are using neutron scattering at Oak Ridge National Laboratory to develop a novel technique to analyze materials exhibiting exotic types of magnetic behavior. Shown here is bixbyite, a manganese oxide mineral found in South Africa, that experiences an unusual magnetic phase transition at low temperatures. Credit: ORNL/Genevieve Martin More Identifying

Illustration of modern humans overcoming disease burden before Neanderthals. Credit: Vivian Chen Wong Growing up in Israel, Gili Greenbaum would give tours of local caves once inhabited by Neanderthals and wonder along with others why our distant cousins abruptly disappeared about 40,000 years ago. Now a scientist at Stanford, Greenbaum thinks he has an answer.
