This newly developed perovskite solar cell offers better performance
A perovskite photovoltaic cell that was produced without using the conventional thermal drying process offered better performance.

The Lockheed Martin and NASA Orion team has successfully proof-pressure tested the Orion spacecraft’s Exploration Mission-1 (EM-1) crew module. The crew module is the living quarters for astronauts and the backbone for many of Orion’s systems such as propulsion, avionics and parachutes. In order to certify the structural integrity of the crew module it was outfitted with approximately 850 instruments and subjected to 1.25 times the maximum pressure the capsule is expected to experience during its deep space missions.

Researchers examined the chemical identity and 3-D position of atoms in soft biological materials with a new approach using atom probe tomography, or APT. An extension of this new specimen preparation technique can further enhance the APT study of organic and inorganic materials and nanoparticles relevant to energy and the environment.

The Rise of Homo Sapiens

From about 2 million years ago until about 10,000 years ago, the world was populated by at least 6 different human species. They evolved from a common ancestor in East Africa, a hominid called Australopithecus (Southern Ape). Over thousands of years these primitive humans migrated to regions in North Africa, Europe and Asia. It is likely that environmental changes initiated the exodus, and as time passed new opportunities opened up in other lands. The diverse environments caused humans to evolve different survival traits, eventually branching out into several species.

Not Good news:

Riddle of missing efficiency in zinc oxide-based dye-sensitized solar cells solved

To convert solar energy into electricity or solar fuels, you need specialised systems of materials such as those consisting of organic and inorganic thin films.

Processes at the junction of these films play a decisive role in converting the solar energy. Now a team at HZB headed by Prof. Emad Aziz has used ultra-short laser pulses and observed for the first time directly how boundary states form between the organic dye molecules and a zinc-oxide semiconductor layer, temporarily trapping the charge carriers.

Organic acids are an important component of atmospheric aerosols; they are found in abundance in a variety of urban, rural and marine environments. A recent study combined experimental and theoretical techniques to shed light on their role in initial stages of aerosol particle formation. The study found that newly formed atmospheric aerosol particles can influence the formation and properties of clouds, potentially having a major impact on global climate.

Microbes that make methane are taking chemists on a road less traveled: Of two competing ideas for how microbes make the main component of natural gas, the winning chemical reaction involves a molecule less favored by previous research, something called a methyl radical. Reported in the journal Science, this research is important for understanding not only how methane is made, but also how to make things from it. Read more at http://goo.gl/nKyCVS.

Hi Guys...Do u know that the END of HONEYBEES will be the END of HUMAN RACE? Yes...This is true...Even if you hate bees, you need them. They are responsible for much of the food on your plate. Bees perform a task that is vital to the survival of agriculture: pollination. In fact, one third of our global food supply is pollinated by bees. Simply put, bees keep plants and crops alive. Without bees, humans wouldn’t have very much to eat...

One group of hackers, engineers and artists is teaming up to create life-sized 3D printable robots to act as “avatars” for hospitalized children seeking to explore the outside world, and they're inviting anyone to help them: https://goo.gl/R4YiiP

Drop a message on the project :) they're setting up a robot for the Sacramento Kings (NBA) too so good time to get involved.

Hybrid batteries that charge faster than conventional ones could have significantly better electrical capacity and long-term stability when prepared with ion soft-landing. This high-precision technique resulted in electrodes that could store a third more energy with twice the lifespan compared to those prepared by a conventional method. This method could eventually lead to cheaper, more powerful, longer-lasting rechargeable batteries. Read more at http://goo.gl/V43VwG.

hmmm, one more reason for restoration of biodivercity... just don't get stupid with your ornamental garden trees near the shttp://gizmodo.com/scientists-acquire-more-proof-that-only-beavers-can-sav-1737859426treams  not a normal for me science outlet, but it does provide the hyperlink to the pdf for the study.... 
We’ve already seen how beavers can save California from its seemingly endless drought. Now it looks like they can save the world from industrial farming by changing the chemistry of the water, making them natural biochemists.

Boosted by his research and extensive reading on the influence of #biology on #sexual #orientation, Jacques Balthazart, emeritus head of the Behavioural Neuroendocrinology Research Group in the GIGA-neurosciences centre of the University of Liege, summarises existing knowledge on the subject in a scientific article* in which he describes what is known based on animal models as well as on what is currently understood about the influence of hormones, genetics and epigenetics on sexual orientation in humans.
