Latest Particle Stories
Even though dark matter is believed to make up 85 percent of the universe’s mass, no one has managed to detect the elusive material, but a new fundamental particle proposed by scientists at the University of Southampton could finally change that.
In what they are calling a step towards building microscopic robots, researchers from the University of Michigan have demonstrated how chains of self-assembling particles could act like tiny, electrically-activated muscles.
Astrophysicists believe that about 80 percent of the substance of our universe is made up of mysterious “dark matter” that can’t be perceived by human senses or scientific instruments.
INDIANAPOLIS, May 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The new VERSAGEL® MG series offers a silicone alternative for formulating personal care products when a silky, elegant after-feel is desired.
By attaching short sequences of single-stranded DNA to nanoscale building blocks, researchers can design structures that can effectively build themselves.
NASA researchers have scaled down the heavy, inefficient machinery for measuring nanoparticles.
The Great Lakes, the largest source of fresh water in the world, may not be so fresh anymore. That’s according to researchers with the University of Wisconsin-Superior, who, for the second year in a row, have found plastic particles in the Great Lakes.

Large quantities of globally produced plastics end up in the oceans where they represent a growing risk.
Evaluating one way of how clouds can form. To understand this method it’s important to understand a few terms. The first one is Cloud Condensation Nuclei. The CCN can consist of anything from dust, dirt, salt anything that is floating in the air. The second thing is moisture. There must be moisture present in the atmosphere to condense on the CCN to form a droplet. Next step to the process is what is known as collision and coalescence. This is the process of many CCN’s running...
