Quantum dot solar windows go non-toxic, colorless, with record efficiency
A luminescent solar concentrator is an emerging sunlight harvesting technology that has the potential to disrupt the way we think about energy; It could turn any window into a daytime power source.

Despite our long history with lab rats, we know very little about the lives of the rats in our homes—things that, even though we might now want to know, we probably should.
They eat our food. They furnish their nests with our detritus. They chew through our sheet metal, our lead pipes and our concrete. They outsmart us at every turn. They are our shadow, our enemy, ou...

Stephen Hawking has warned that artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race. Other leading lights, such as Bill Gates and Elon Musk, agree. Set against the vast investment in AI by big firms like Google and Microsoft, such fears have taken on new weight. With supercomputers in every pocket and robots looking down on every battlefield, just dismissing them as science fiction seems like self-deception. The question is how to worry wisely http://econ.st/1GTxrXn
        “THE development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race,” Stephen Hawking warns. Elon Musk fears that...

'Dwarf planet' Ceres spawns giant mystery - First classified a planet, then an asteroid and then a "dwarf planet" with some traits of a moon—the more scientists learn about Ceres, the weirder it becomes. http://ow.ly/2XkQZZ

New data from Antarctic detector firms up cosmic neutrino sighting
Researchers using the IceCube Neutrino Observatory have sorted through the billions of subatomic particles that zip through its frozen cubic-kilometer-sized detector each year to gather powerful new evidence in support of 2013 observations confirming the existence of cosmic neutrinos.

Sol-gel capacitor dielectric offers record-high energy storage
Using a hybrid silica sol-gel material and self-assembled monolayers of a common fatty acid, researchers have developed a new capacitor dielectric material that provides an electrical energy storage capacity rivaling certain batteries, with both a high energy density and high power density.

World record: Most powerful high-energy particle beam for a neutrino experiment ever generated http://ow.ly/317zrf
A key element in a particle-accelerator-based neutrino experiment is the power of the beam that gives birth to neutrinos: The more particles you can pack into that beam, the better your chance to see neutrinos interact in your detector. Today scientists announced that Fermilab has set a world record ...

A decade ago, if you lived in Australia and had a mobile phone in your pocket, chances are it was a Nokia.

In America, Blackberry once commanded nearly half the mobile phone market share.

How do once ubiquitous products and brands suffer such staggering decline?

Flying by the "Death Star" Moon! In this view captured by our Cassini spacecraft on its closest-ever flyby of Saturn's moon Mimas, large Herschel Crater dominates Mimas, making the moon look like the Death Star in the movie "Star Wars." May the 4th Be With You!
