Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Stanford University may have found a way to revitalize rechargeable lithium batteries, potentially boosting the range of electric vehicles and battery life in next-gen electronic devices. As lithium batteries cycle, they accumulate little islands of inactive lithium that are cut off from the […]

While Germany recklessly continues to reject nuclear power – Finland welcomes it. The parliamentary group leader of the Finnish Greens Atte Harjanne thinks EU classifying nuclear energy as a sustainable energy source is right and in WELT AM SONNTAG (WAMS),…
Astronomers have produced the most comprehensive image of radio emission from our nearest actively feeding supermassive black hole. The emission is powered by a central black hole in the galaxy Centaurus A, about 12 million light years away. As the black hole feeds on in-falling gas, it ejects material at near light-speed, causing âradio bubblesâ […]

Solstice Sunbeam Through Stained Glass Window of Neolithic Burial Room Creates Mesmerizing Rainbow Cloud
Incredible photos show the beam of the setting sun through a stained glass window at a Neolithic burial barrow creating a mesmerizing rainbow of light. Wildlife photographer Andrew Fusek Peters, 56, captured the colorful spectacle at the Soulton Long Barrow in Shropshire on the evening of December 29. The recently completed burial site has been […]
Rogue planets are elusive cosmic objects that have masses comparable to those of the planets in our Solar System but do not orbit a star, instead roaming freely on their own. Not many were known until now, but a team of astronomers, using data from several European Southern Observatory (ESO) telescopes and other facilities, have […]

Scientists Digitally âUnwrapâ Mummy of Pharaoh Amenhotep, While Leaving 3,000 Years Artifact Untouched
All the royal mummies found in the 19th and 20th centuries have long since been opened for study. With one exception: Egyptologists have never been bold enough to open the mummy of Pharaoh Amenhotep I. Not because of any mythical curse, but because it is perfectly wrapped, beautifully decorated with flower garlands, and with face […]
Scientists peering into the depths of Mars’ own grand canyon have found that water makes up as much as 40% of the ground there, an enormous amount considering its near to the hot dry equator of the Red Planet. Covering 15,800 square miles (41,000 square kilometers), the area of water is larger than the Netherlands. […]

Researchers Solve Mystery of Scattered Black Glass in Chilean Desert â it Was Made by an Exploding Comet
A vast swath of dark rocky glass littering a Chilean desert has remained a mystery for a decade, but Brown University researchers just confirmed it was made by an exploding comet. Around 12,000 years ago, something scorched a 47-mile (75km) stretch of the Atacama Desert with heat so intense that it turned the sandy soil […]
