[In Depth] Triumph for gravitational wave hunt

More than a billion years ago, two black holes—the gravitational ghosts of gigantic stars—spiraled together and collided in space. Ripples in spacetime swept through the universe. Five months ago, they washed past Earth, and physicists detected gravitational waves for the first time. The long-awaited discovery—announced this week—marks a triumph for the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory […]

[Report] Using decoys to expand the recognition specificity of a plant disease resistance protein

Maintaining high crop yields in an environmentally sustainable manner requires the development of disease-resistant crop varieties. We describe a method to engineer disease resistance in plants by means of an endogenous disease resistance gene from Arabidopsis thaliana named RPS5, which encodes a nucleotide-binding leucine-rich repeat (NLR) protein. RPS5 is normally activated when a second host […]

[In Depth] Bendy bugs inspire roboticists

Insects, whether they creep or fly, live in a world of hard knocks. Who has not stepped on a cockroach, then raised her shoe to watch the creature get up and scoot under a door? Bees and wasps, for their part, face a never-ending obstacle course of leaves, stems, and petals—bumblebees crash their wings into […]

Supercapacitor On-a-Chip Now One Step Closer

Photo: Image: CIRIMAT/Université Paul Sabatier-Toulouse III In 2010 Spectrum reported a new approach for creating chip-scale supercapacitors on silicon wafers, proposed by researchers at Drexel University in Philadelphia and the Université Paul Sabatier in Toulouse, France. In an article published in Science, the researchers described  how to make supercapacitor electrodes from porous carbon that could stick to the surface of silicon […]
