Team demonstrates large-scale technique to produce quantum dots
A method to produce significant amounts of semiconducting nanoparticles for light-emitting displays, sensors, solar panels and biomedical applications has gained momentum with a demonstration by researchers at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

100,000 Orbits! International Space Station Hits Cosmic Milestone

The International Space Station (ISS) completed its 100,000th orbit of Earth early Monday morning (May 16), NASA officials said.

"This is a significant milestone and is a tribute to this international partnership, made up of the European Space Agency, of Russia, Canada, Japan and the United States," NASA astronaut Jeff Williams said in a video tribute recorded aboard the orbiting lab.

The first component of the ISS was launched on Nov. 20, 1998. Ever since then, the orbiting lab has been zooming around Earth at 17,500 mph (28,164 km/h), completing one lap every 90 minutes or so at an altitude of about 240 miles (386 kilometers).

Gravitational waves produced by merging black holes

This simulation of the GW150914 event detected by the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) at 09:51 UTC on September 14, 2015, represents the merger of a binary black hole system into a single black hole. The event is estimated to have occurred 1.3 billion years ago when two black holes (36x and 29x solar mass) merged into a single 62x solar mass with ~3x solar mass worth of energy emitted as gravitational waves.

The existence of gravitational waves was first predicted 100 years ago by Albert Einstein through his famous Theory of General Relativity. Despite being produced by all accelerating masses, the detection of these waves has eluded humanity due to their miniscule effect. The two US-based LIGO observatories use a technique called laser interferometry to detect these fluctuations in spacetime, which are as small as 10^-18 m, or about 1/1000th the diameter of a proton.

Electronic Device Detects Molecules Linked to Cancer, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's

A biosensor developed by researchers at the National Nanotechnology Laboratory (LNNano) in Campinas, São Paulo State, Brazil, has been proven capable of detecting molecules associated with neurodegenerative diseases and some types of cancer.

The research is in Organic Electronics. (full access paywall)

The three planets dominating the evening sky!
#planets
 
Here they are again, the three planets dominating the evening sky, but Mars is now very close in brightness to Jupiter (mag -2.0 vs. -2.1) and almost as large in apparent size as Saturn (18.1 vs. 18.3 arcseconds - not including the rings, of course). What makes Mars the winner for me are the surface details and weather patterns, and that we can only get views like this for a few weeks every two years. #teammars
