The State Key Laboratory of Virtual Reality Technology and Systems, Beihang University in Beijing, has proposed an image based modeling method for inhomogeneous single-scattering participating media whose density fields may contain high frequency details [1]. This work could reduce the difficulty in capturing real-world participating media, which can be applied to 3D games, film production, virtual reality systems, etc. This study is reported in Volume 53 (June, 2010) of the Science China...

Scientists found a way to help predict which species are likely to be most affected by radioactive contamination. The scientists in Chernobyl said that the secret to a species' vulnerability lies in its DNA. The research helps to reveal which species are most likely to decline or become extinct in response to other types of environmental stress. Professor Tim Mousseau from the University of South Carolina and Dr. Anders Moller from the National Center for Scientific Research in Paris France...

A new approach to building an "artificial nose" "“ using fluorescent compounds and DNA "“ could accelerate the use of sniffing sensors into the realm of mass production and widespread use, say Stanford chemists. If their method lives up to its promise, it could one day detect everything from incipiently souring milk to high explosives.By sticking fluorescent compounds onto short strands of the molecules that form the backbone of DNA, the researchers have produced tiny sensor...

Genetic abnormalities are most often discussed in terms of differences so miniscule they are actually called "snips" "” changes in a single unit along the 3 billion that make up the entire string of human DNA. "There's a whole world beyond SNPs "” single nucleotide polymorphisms "” and we've stepped into that world," says Brian Teague, a doctoral student in genetics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. "There are much bigger changes in there." Variation on the order of...

In a single day, a solitary grad student at a lab bench can produce more simple logic circuits than the world's entire output of silicon chips in a month. So says a Duke University engineer, who believes that the next generation of these logic circuits at the heart of computers will be produced inexpensively in almost limitless quantities. The secret is that instead of silicon chips serving as the platform for electric circuits, computer engineers will take advantage of the unique properties...

Sky -- Although almost everyone have seen it, sky is hard to be defined precisely. Generally, sky is the space seen when one looks upward from the surface of a planet. Some people define sky as the denser gaseous zone of a planet's atmosphere. Clouds, rainbows and weather all occur amongst a planet's sky. In astronomy, the sky is divided into many regions, called constellations. The blue colour of the daytime sky results from the selective scattering of light rays. When the sunlight...
