Even in trace quantities, the radioactive gas radon is very dangerous; it is second only to cigarette smoking as a cause of lung cancer deaths in the United States. The expense and precautions necessary to study it safely have limited research into its properties.  Now, University of Pennsylvania chemists have for the first time measured how well radon binds to a molecule, paving the way for future research on it and other noble gasses.    The research was led by...

British doctors say they have prevented brain injury in a baby boy who was born in critical condition by using an inert gas, according to the Associated Press (AP). The doctors at St. Michael's Hospital in Bristol said Friday that treatment with xenon gas is experimental and has not been used elsewhere. Riley Joyce, the baby boy who faced critical condition, could not breath or maintain a pulse when he was born, showing signs of brain injury. The doctors say they resuscitated him and used...

When NASA's Galileo probe reached Jupiter in 1995 and began sending back data about the gas giant, astronomers were in for a surprise: Jupiter was unusually poor in helium and neon, the two lightest noble gases. New simulations of the physics inside the planet reveal why. The results, which provide a glimpse into Jupiter's turbulent innards, are reported in the current issue of Physical Review Letters and highlighted with a Viewpoint by Jonathan Fortney (University of California, Santa Cruz)...

Phase transitions "“ changes of matter from one state to another without altering its chemical makeup "“ are an important part of life in our three-dimensional world. Water falls to the ground as snow, melts to a liquid and eventually vaporizes back to the clouds to begin the cycle anew. Now a team of scientists has devised a new way to explore how such phase transitions function in less than three dimensions and at the level of just a few atoms. They hope the technique will be...
