Scientists are preparing a vibration-insulation system for Russian diesel locomotives

The vibration-insulating devices will be made of metal rubber (MR material), a unique damping material developed by the Samara scientists and produced in the university's laboratories. MR material has the useful properties of rubber, while at the same time withstanding aggressive agents, high and low temperatures and other adverse external factors. The secret lies in the special technology of plaiting and pressing the spiral metal…

Galactic ‘wind’ stifling star formation is most distant yet seen

AUSTIN, Texas -- For the first time, a powerful "wind" of molecules has been detected in a galaxy located 12 billion light-years away. Probing a time when the universe was less than 10 percent of its current age, University of Texas at Austin astronomer Justin Spilker's research sheds light on how the earliest galaxies regulated the birth of stars to keep from blowing themselves apart.…

Is the key to sparking climate action a game?

Research published by PLOS ONE found that 81 percent of participants in the World Climate Simulation, a role-playing game of the UN climate talks, showed increased motivation to combat climate change, even among Americans who are free market proponents, a belief strongly linked to denial of human-caused climate change in the United States. Prof. Juliette Rooney-Varga of the UMass Lowell Climate Change Initiative led the…

Florence became the Atlantic Ocean's third hurricane of…

Success in critical communications tests for NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope

When NASA's James Webb Space Telescope launches in 2021, it will write a new chapter in cosmic history. This premier space science observatory will seek the first stars and galaxies, explore distant planets around other stars, and solve mysteries of own solar system. Webb will be controlled from the Mission Operations Center (MOC) at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, Maryland. To prepare for…
