When a spacecraft launches from Cape Canaveral, Fla., in the future, its cargo will include a small box containing a nano-fluidics experiment designed by scientists at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston.
Rising seventh and eighth graders in the local region will have an opportunity to examine evidence like a crime scene investigator, launch a rocket and much more if they participate in the free Summer Science Day Camp at West Virginia University sponsored by WVNano.
Like tiny Jedi knights, tunable fluidic micro lenses can focus and direct light at will to count cells, evaluate molecules or create on-chip optical tweezers, according to a team of Penn State engineers.
The Institute of Occupational Medicine (IOM) has announced the launch of ENPRA - a major new European Framework 7 project to develop and implement a novel integrated approach for engineered nanoparticle risk assessment.
A material that is a hundred thousand times heavier than water and more dense than the core of the Sun is being produced at the University of Gothenburg. The scientists working with this material are aiming for an energy process that is both more sustainable and less damaging to the environment than the nuclear power used today.
