Maria-José Viñas, NASA’s Earth Science News Team One of the most visible signs of climate change in recent years was not even visible at all until a few decades ago. The sea ice cap that covers the Arctic Ocean has been changing dramatically, especially in the last 15 years. Its ice is thinner and more vulnerable – and at its summer minimum now covers more than 1 million fewer square miles than in the late 1970s. That’s enough missing ice to cover Alaska, California and Texas....

National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) It's not quite Star Trek communications—yet. But long-distance communications in space may be easier now that researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) have designed a clever detector array that can extract more information than usual from single particles of light. Described in a new paper, the NIST/JPL array-on-a-chip easily identifies the position of the exact...

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Having been commercially manufactured since the 1960s, semiconductors are the backbone of modern electronics. However, these materials are slowly being replaced by superconductors – particularly in the field of astrophysics. Superconductivity is essentially a quantum phenomenon that happens when certain materials are cooled to near absolute zero. This cooling eliminates electrical resistance and magnetic fields, allowing for the...

The bolometer, invented in 1878 by Samuel Pierpont Langley, measures the energy of incident electromagnetic radiation. It consists of an absorptive element connected to a heat sink through a thermal link. The absortive element raises its temperature above that of the heat sink when radiation impinges on it. The higher the energy the higher the temperature rises. Old bolometers used metals while newer ones used semiconductors and superconductors as the absorptive elements. Bolometers can...
