Antarctic fungi survive Martian conditions on the International Space Station

European scientists have gathered tiny fungi that take shelter in Antarctic rocks and sent them to the International Space Station. After 18 months on board in conditions similar to those on Mars, more than 60% of their cells remained intact, with stable DNA. The results provide new information for the search for life on the red planet. Lichens from the Sierra de Gredos (Spain) and the Alps (Austria) also travelled into space for the same experiment. Leer ms

With luminescent proteins

German and Spanish Scientists discovered a way to create a BioLEDs

Scientists from Germany and Spain have discovered a way to create a BioLED by packaging luminescent proteins in the form of rubber. This innovative device gives off a white light which is created by equal parts of blue, green and red rubber layers covering one LED, thus rendering the same effect as with traditional inorganic LEDs but at a lower cost. Leer ms

Names from several cultures

International contest renames 14 stars

Thanks to a worldwide vote, 14 stars in our universe and 31 exoplanets that orbit them now have new names. The International Astronomical Union the reigning authority on naming celestial bodies throughout the cosmos released the winners of its NameExoWorlds contest today. More than half a million votes helped to decide the winners, which include such inventive titles as Chalawan, Cervantes, and Helvetios. Leer ms

Beginnings of our galaxy

A ghost from the past recalls the infancy of the Milky Way

When our galaxy was born, around 13,000 million years ago, a plethora of clusters containing millions of stars emerged. But over time, they have been disappearing. However, hidden behind younger stars that were formed later, some old and dying star clusters remain, such as the so-called E 3. European astronomers have now studied this testimony to the beginnings of our galaxy. Leer ms

Cardiff University-led research

Past earthquakes play a role in future landslides, research suggests

The likelihood of an area experiencing a potentially devastating landslide could be influenced by its previous exposure to earthquakes many decades earlier. This is according to new research led by Cardiff University showing that areas which have experienced strong earthquakes in the past were more likely to produce landslides when a second earthquake hit later on. Leer ms

Clothes in animations

Disney researchers use multigrid method to speed up cloth simulation

The technique enables more realistic look, behavior of cloth in animation. Simulating the behavior of clothing and other fabrics in animated films requires animators to make tradeoffs between a realistic look and a reasonable amount of computing time. Researchers at Walt Disney Animation Studios now have developed a method that can shift the balance toward greater realism. Leer ms

Signs of acid fog found on Mars

Planetary scientist Shoshanna Cole has pieced together a compelling story about how acidic vapors may have eaten at the rocks in a 100-acre area on Husband Hill in the Columbia Hills of Gusev Crater on Mars. She used a variety of data gathered by multiple instruments on the 2003 Mars Exploration Rover Spirit to tease out information from exposures of the ancient bedrock.  Leer ms

Study reveals how brain multitasks

Findings help explain how the brain pays attention to whats important and how neural circuits may be broken in attention-deficit disorders. Researchers at NYU Langone Medical Center say they have added to evidence that a shell-shaped region in the center of the mammalian brain, known as the thalamic reticular nucleus or TRN, is likely responsible for the ability to routinely and seamlessly multitask. Leer ms
