American Chemical Society A sponge-like plastic that sops up the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2) might ease our transition away from polluting fossil fuels and toward new energy sources, such as hydrogen. The material — a relative of the plastics used in food containers — could play a role in President Obama’s plan to cut CO2 emissions 30 percent by 2030, and could also be integrated into power plant smokestacks in the future. The report on the material is one of nearly 12,000...

An unusual substance known as "dry water," which resembles powdered sugar, could provide a new way to absorb and store carbon dioxide, the major greenhouse gas that contributes to global warming, scientists reported at the 240th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society. The powder shows bright promise for a number of other uses, they said. It may, for instance, be a greener, more energy-efficient way of jump-starting the chemical reactions used to make hundreds of consumer products....

Many of the Milky Way's ancient stars are remnants of other smaller galaxies torn apart by violent galactic collisions around five billion years ago, according to researchers at Durham University, who publish their results in a new paper in the journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. Scientists at Durham's Institute for Computational Cosmology and their collaborators at the Max Planck Institute for Astrophysics, in Germany, and Groningen University, in Holland, ran huge...

By Guy Faulconbridge MOSCOW -- A court in Russia's remote far east ruled on Friday that a Briton trying to walk 36,000 miles around the world should be deported for breaking border rules. Former paratrooper Karl Bushby was detained on April 1 in the freezing wilds of the Chukotka peninsula after walking across the frozen Bering Strait between Russia and Alaska in the United States. The court in the settlement of Lavrentiya fined Bushby and Dimitri Kieffer, an American who helped him cross the...
