Hybrid bioinorganic approach to solar-to-chemical conversion: system produces hydrogen and uses it (via microbes) to synthesize carbon dioxide into methane, the primary constituent of natural gas.
Artificial photosynthesis provides electrical current to produce hydrogen gas from water; the hydrogen then synthesizes carbon dioxide (via microbes) into

Interesting Paper: Extinction Events Can Accelerate Evolution... paper shows how "increased evolvability will result from simulated extinction events in two computational models of evolved behavior. The conclusion is that although they are destructive in the short term, extinction events may make evolution more prolific in the long term.: see Story below and link to open access journal:    http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0132886
At the start of the simulation, a biped robot controlled by a computationally evolved brain stands upright on a 16 meter by 16 meter surface. The simulation

"...findings revealed 83 percent of all stars that have formed since the Big Bang originated in disc-shaped galaxies.Only 49 percent of these stars remain in disc-shaped galaxies today, and the remaining exist in spherical galaxies. The results suggest a major metamorphosis occurred in which disc-shaped galaxies became spherical-shaped galaxies."
Scientists from Cardiff University used the Hubble and Herschel telescopes to determine how galaxies have transformed over time.

 LSST telescope’s camera — the size of a small car and weighing more than three tons — will capture full-sky images at such high resolution that it would take 1,500 high-definition television screens to display just one of them.
The LSST’s camera will include a filter-changing mechanism and shutter. This animation shows that mechanism at work, which allows the camera to view

Learning is made possible by the fact that the functional connections between nerve cells in the brain are subject to constant remodeling. As a result of activation-dependent modification of these links (‘synaptic plasticity’), circuits that are repeatedly stimulated “learn” to transmit signals ever more efficiently. This process is thought to provide the molecular basis for learning and memory, allowing the information encoded in such networks to be recalled and exploited in novel situations. The primary targets for modification are the specialized receptor proteins in nerve-cell membranes that mediate the transmission of electrical signals between individual neurons. A team of researchers led by Dirk Trauner, Professor of Chemical Biology and Genetics at LMU, in collaboration with colleagues at the Institut Pasteur in Paris, has now synthesized a light-dependent switch that enables them to control the activity of a particular class of receptors which is crucial for the formation and storage of memories. The compound provides a powerful new tool for researchers interested in probing the mechanisms that underlie short- and long-term memory. The results appear in the online journal “Nature Communications”.

Individual nerve cells generally use chemical messengers to communicate with each other. These so-called neurotransmitters are released by specialized structures called synapses at the end of the signal-transmitting fiber (the axon) and diffuse across the synaptic cleft – the narrow gap that separates nerve cells from each other. The chemical then binds to receptors on the “post-synaptic” neuron. How the post-synaptic cell reacts is dependent on the nature of the neurotransmitter and the corresponding receptor. “In this context, the so-called NMDA receptor is very special,” says Laura Laprell, a PhD student in Trauner’s group and joint first author of the new study. “It is primarily responsible for the fact that we have the capacity to form memories and the ability to learn.”
Researchers have developed a light-sensitive switch that regulates a protein implicated in synaptic plasticity. The researchers believe the photoswitch could help shed light on learning, memory and neurodegeneration.
