Bioengineers have developed a polymer-based spray foam that quickly slows and then stops blood flow from a serious wound: http://ow.ly/OXfOO
A small can of spray foam can reduce bleeding by 90% and save lives all thanks to shrimp shells.

Explore the properties, uses, and future of graphene with this infographic from Compound Interest: http://ow.ly/OQXFX
You may not have been aware, but this week is Graphene Week 2015, which marks a yearly week-long conference at the University of Manchester based around the emerging science and technological applications of graphene. This seemed as good a time as any to take a look at graphene: what it is, why some

Researchers at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory have observed a chemical reaction "as it was happening at the molecular level, at speeds that previously were too fast to see" http://ow.ly/OQrBw
For the first time, scientists have observed a chemical reaction as it was happening at the molecular level, in intervals lasting just femtoseconds, or quadrillionths of a second. The experiment reveals molecular moviemaking is possible.

"Our study is the first to demonstrate, with the use of x-ray crystallography, that the channel changes its diameter. And the technique really allows us to see everything at atomic-scale resolution, it's like taking an x-ray of the protein." http://ow.ly/OR4nn
The Nobel Prize winner Roderick MacKinnon suggested that ion channels were like rigid tubes through which molecules of varying size move. Now it seems that he was wrong: a team of scientists from SISSA Trieste and the Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste at AREA Science Park used the most robust technique in ...

"Over the course of her career, Noether developed much of modern abstract algebra: the grammar and the syntax of math, letting us say what we need to in math and science." http://ow.ly/OR3nn
Noether's theorem is a thread woven into the fabric of the science.

Does biodiversity reduce the frequency of human disease? http://ow.ly/OR32V
Protecting the environment may reduce many diseases, such as Lyme and West Nile, a study finds. The tantalizing idea suggests that conservation and human health may be more connected than we thought.
