Scientists discover zero-sound oscillations of atomic wavelength in super-chilled helium Scientists working at the Institut Laue-Langevin, one of the world's leading centres for neutron science, have carried out the first investigation of two-dimensional fermion liquids using neutron scattering, and discovered a new type of very short wave-length density wave. The team believe their discovery will interest researchers looking at electronic systems, since high temperature superconductivity...

Helium Shortage Leaves Scientists In No Mood To Celebrate

Michael Harper for Redorbit.com Helium is a remarkable gas with many roles. During the week it can be used in the laboratory, making sure important equipment like telescopes and MRI machines run cool. On the weekends, helium likes to party, holding your balloons aloft and setting the mood. This kind of “Burning the candle at both ends” is catching up with the gas however, and ultimately may see the end of helium on this planet. According to some, the world may run completely...

According to a new study, membranes based on the material graphene can be used to distill alcohol. The researchers wrote in the journal Science that they created the membrane from graphene oxide, which is a chemical derivative of graphene. Graphene is the thinnest known material in the universe and the strongest ever measured.  it conducts electricity and heat better the any other material as well. A University of Manchester academics won the Noble Prize in Physics in 2010 by...

Physicists at Linköping University have shown that a dose of hydrogen or helium can render the "super material" graphene even more useful. Graphene has engendered high expectations whereof its extreme properties depend on the fact that it consists of a single sheet of carbon atoms. However the attraction forces between the atoms cause the sheets to be drawn to each other. One solution is to add atomic hydrogen between the layers. Presented in the eminent journal Physical...

Astronomers Find Clouds Of Primordial Gas From The Early Universe
2011-11-11 04:10:18

For the first time, astronomers have found pristine clouds of the primordial gas that formed in the first few minutes after the Big Bang. The composition of the gas matches theoretical predictions, providing direct evidence in support of the modern cosmological explanation for the origins of elements in the universe. Only the lightest elements, mostly hydrogen and helium, were created in the Big Bang. Then a few hundred million years passed before clumps of this primordial gas condensed to...

Solar Radiation -- Solar radiation is radiant energy emitted by the sun due to nuclear fusion reactions. Fusion is the process whereby stars produce huge quantities of energy from the fusion of hydrogen or helium, in one of the most efficient processes of energy generation. The radiation referred to is usually electromagnetic energy, particularly infrared radiation, visible light, and ultraviolet. Some stars are known to emit radiation of other wavelengths. Solar neutrinos are a...

humgruffin
  • A terrible or repulsive person.
Regarding the etymology of 'humgruffin,' the OED says (rather unhelpfully) that it's a 'made-up word.' We might guess that 'hum' comes from 'humbug' or possibly 'hum' meaning 'a disagreeable smell,' while 'gruffin' could be a combination of 'gruff' and 'griffin.'
