The mere presence of digital devices in bedrooms may rev kids’ brains up. http://ow.ly/wzvU308hqyT
Most nights I read a book in bed to wind down. But when I run out of my library supply, I read articles on my phone instead. I suspect that this digital substitution messes with my sleep. That’s not good for me — but it’s probably worse for the many children who have screens in their rooms at night. A team of researchers recently combed through the literature looking for associations between mobile devices in the bedroom and poor sleep. Biostatis...

A more detailed understanding of the mosquito immune system might help scientists design new ways to combat malaria. http://ow.ly/yUGv308g5vk
Immune cells in a malaria-transmitting mosquito sense the invading parasites and deploy an army of tiny messengers in response. These couriers help turn on a mosquito’s defenses, killing off the parasites, a new study suggests.This more detailed understanding of the mosquito immune system, published January 20 in Science Immunology, might help scientists design new ways to combat malaria, which infects more than 200 million people per year.“If we...

Green was all the rage a couple of billion years after the Big Bang. http://ow.ly/vWLM307QgNr #aas229
GRAPEVINE, TEXAS — Green was all the rage a couple of billion years after the Big Bang.Galaxies in the early universe blasted out a specific wavelength of green light, researchers reported January 7 at a meeting of the American Astronomical Society. It takes stars much hotter than most stars found in the modern universe to make that light. The finding offers a clue to what the earliest generation of stars might have been like (SN: 10/1/16, p. 25)...

A Delaware-sized hunk of ice could soon break away from Antarctica. http://ow.ly/T7Ai307PXLA
One of Antarctica’s largest ice shelves is nearing its breaking point, scientists warn. A colossal crack in the Larsen C ice shelf abruptly grew by 18 kilometers during the second half of December 2016, members of the Antarctic research group Project MIDAS reported January 5. The crack is now only about 20 kilometers away from reaching Larsen C’s edge and snapping off a hunk of ice the size of Delaware.Such a breakup could destabilize the ice she...

Efforts to make better batteries charge forward. http://ow.ly/Yf2x307PTUq
Everybody wants more power from their batteries. Smartphones and laptops always need recharging. Electric car drivers must carefully plan their routes to avoid being stranded far from a charging station. Anyone who struggles with a tangle of chargers every night would prefer a battery that can last for weeks or months.For researchers who specialize in batteries, though, the drive for a better battery is less about the luxury of an always-charged ...

Negatively charged clusters of hydrogen could form naturally in space. http://ow.ly/JLws307PRwW
Scientists have produced a new form of hydrogen in the lab — negatively charged hydrogen clusters.Each cluster consists of hydrogen molecules arranged around a negatively charged hydrogen ion — a single hydrogen atom with an extra electron — at temperatures near absolute zero, the researchers report in the Dec. 30 Physical Review Letters. Similar, positively charged ion clusters have previously been found, but this is the first time scientists ha...
