In the search for superconductors, finding ways to compress hydrogen into a metal has been a point of focus ever since scientists predicted many years ago that electricity would flow, uninhibited, through such a material. Liquid metallic hydrogen is thought to exist in the high-gravity interiors of Jupiter and Saturn. But so far, on Earth, researchers have been unable to use static compression techniques to squeeze hydrogen under high enough pressures to convert it into a metal. Shock-wave...

An essential component of animal nervous systems"”sodium channels"”evolved prior to the evolution of those systems, researchers from The University of Texas at Austin have discovered. "The first nervous systems appeared in jellyfish-like animals six hundred million years ago or so," says Harold Zakon, professor of neurobiology, "and it was thought that sodium channels evolved around that time. We have now discovered that sodium channels were around well before nervous systems...

Consuming a lot of salt may not lead to high blood pressure or heart disease in healthy people, according to a new European study. In January, the U.S. government released new salt intake guidelines recommending that Americans should consume less than 2,300 milligrams of salt a day, and 1,500 milligrams for those who are at a higher risk of high blood pressure or heart disease. However, a new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) found that there is no...
