Nanoparticles in air pollution have been linked to heart disease; scientists have found a possible explanation for this. full text Tiny particles in air pollution have been associated with cardiovascular disease, which can lead to...

Have a cavity? Ask your dentist about filling it with a mixture of nanoparticles including silica and zirconia. These white fillings (known as nano-composite resins) resemble teeth better than their metal alternatives and are...

When a ballerina pirouettes, twirling a full revolution, she looks just as she did when she started. But for electrons and other subatomic particles, which follow the rules of quantum theory, that's not necessarily...

For some people, the human body isn’t a temple. Instead they see it as a source of frustration thanks to the considerable limitations compared to the powerful technology available today. In the last few...

In a lab on the other side of the planet, at this very moment, an organic-inorganic jelly now beats with a like-life tempo

The analogy of oil being 'dope' fits. It's a quick fix with bad downsides and poor regard for the future. The present furious pace of technological growth in solar may finally allow our avarice to align with our better interests.
