A chemist at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., has developed a technology intended to rapidly assess any presence of microbial life on spacecraft. This new method may also help the military test for disease-causing bacteria, such as a causative agent for anthrax, and may also be useful in the medical, pharmaceutical and other fields. Adrian Ponce, the deputy manager for JPL's planetary science section, devised the new microscope-based method, which has the potential to...

Scientists at The University of Nottingham have overcome one of the significant research challenges facing electrochemists. For the first time they have found a way of probing right into the heart of an electrochemical reaction. Their breakthrough will help scientists understand how catalysts work. If this is understood even better catalysts could be created. Chemists and engineers, under the direction of Dr Pete Licence in the School of Chemistry, overcame significant challenges to be able...
