Science of the Week, 11/6/15

Here are some of the most interesting science news articles I read this week:

Microbiomes could hold keys to improving life

Making cars of the future stronger, using less energy

NASA study: mass gains of Antarctic Ice Sheet greater than losses

Spirals in dust around young stars may betray presence of massive planets

Nuclear membrane repairs the "dark matter" of DNA 

Black hole has major flare

Scientists can now "squeeze" light, a breakthrough that could make computers millions of times faster

 Magnetic cell sensors let scientists track cells and interactions within them

Have a good weekend, and I'll see you Monday!

I hope the study with Antarctica is accurate. It would be one less thing to worry about as things heat up.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Ice gaining mass instead of losing? I knew global warming was bunk.

Sandra Almazan said...

That would be nice, Jennifer!

Alex, I can't vouch for the Antarctic, but when my husband and I took a cruise to Alaska, we did see signs that the glaciers were shrinking there.
