Short gamma-ray bursts do follow binary neutron star mergers



Posted: 13 Jun 2018 10:51 PM PDT


Researchers have confirmed that last fall's union of two neutron stars did in fact cause a short gamma-ray burst.


Magnetic 3D-printed structures crawl, roll, and jump



Posted: 13 Jun 2018 01:30 PM PDT


Engineers have created soft, 3D-printed structures whose movements can be controlled with a wave of a magnet, much like marionettes without the strings. The menagerie of structures that can be magnetically manipulated includes a smooth ring that wrinkles up, a long tube that squeezes shut, a sheet that folds itself, and a spider-like 'grabber' that can crawl, roll, jump, and snap together fast enough to catch a passing ball.


Organics on Ceres may be more abundant than originally thought

A new analysis of data from NASA's Dawn mission suggests that organic matter may exist in surprisingly high concentrations on the dwarf planet's surface.


Platform uses artificial intelligence to diagnose Zika and other pathogens



Posted: 13 Jun 2018 08:38 AM PDT


Method created in Brazil combines mass spectrometry analysis of blood serum with an algorithm that recognizes patterns associated with diseases from various origins. Adoption of machine learning technique allows the program to adapt itself to possible viral mutations.


Attacking bacteria with shark skin-inspired surfaces



Posted: 13 Jun 2018 08:37 AM PDT


Sharks are often the subject of TV specials or news stories focusing on their attacks on humans. But scientists are finding that sharks could inspire a new type of surface that would attack bacteria, helping humans instead of hurting them. Researchers have designed a coating that is infused with antimicrobial agents and has the patterned diamond-like texture of shark skin.


E- textiles control home appliances with the swipe of a finger



Posted: 13 Jun 2018 08:37 AM PDT


Electronic textiles could allow a person to control household appliances or computers from a distance simply by touching a wristband or other item of clothing -- something that could be particularly helpful for those with limited mobility. Now researchers, have developed a new type of e-textile that is self-powered, highly sensitive and washable. A video of an e-wristband in action is available.


Automated robotic device for faster blood testing



Posted: 13 Jun 2018 07:20 AM PDT


Researchers have created an automated blood drawing and testing device that provides rapid results, potentially improving the workflow in hospitals and other health-related institutions to allow health care practitioners to spend more time treating patients.


Digital devices during family time could exacerbate bad behavior



Posted: 13 Jun 2018 07:20 AM PDT


Parents who spend a lot of time on their phones or watching television during family activities such as meals, playtime, and bedtime could influence their long-term relationships with their children. This is according to researchers who say so called 'technoference' can lead children to show more frustration, hyperactivity, whining, sulking or tantrums.


Tracking energy flow in large molecules



Posted: 13 Jun 2018 07:20 AM PDT


Scientists have developed a novel and unambiguous way to track energy flow in polyatomic molecules at ultrashort timescales.


Computer program looks five minutes into the future



Posted: 13 Jun 2018 07:20 AM PDT


Scientists have developed software that can look minutes into the future: The program learns the typical sequence of actions, such as cooking, from video sequences. Then it can predict in new situations what the chef will do at which point in time.


Novel microplate 3D bioprinting platform for muscle & tendon tissue engineering



Posted: 13 Jun 2018 07:19 AM PDT


New research describes the development of a novel screening platform with automated production of 3D muscle- and tendon-like tissues using 3D bioprinting.


Magnetic treatment could help remove 'off-flavor' from wines



Posted: 13 Jun 2018 07:19 AM PDT


From vine to wine, grapes undergo a remarkable transformation. But sometimes this makeover results in vino that doesn't taste quite right. Scientists now report that they have found a way to use tiny magnetic particles to remove off-tasting substances in cabernet sauvignon without altering its desired bouquet. Eventually, they say this technique could help remove unwanted flavors from other wines.


Trio of infant planets discovered around newborn star



Posted: 13 Jun 2018 07:19 AM PDT


Two independent teams of astronomers have uncovered convincing evidence that three young planets are in orbit around an infant star known as HD 163296. Using a new planet-finding strategy, the astronomers identified three discrete disturbances in a young star's gas-filled disk: the strongest evidence yet that newly formed planets are in orbit there.
