    The origin of life. Creation through Self.

    A famous experiment in 1953 showed that amino acids, the building blocks of proteins, could have formed spontaneously under the atmospheric conditions of early Earth. However, just because molecules could form doesn’t mean that the process was likely. Now, researchers have demonstrated that energetically feasible interactions between just two small molecules — hydrogen cyanide and […]

    Chaos… Order… Chaos…

    Can chaotic systems also synchronize with each other? Physicists from Bar-Ilan University in Israel, along with colleagues from Spain, India and Italy, analyzed the Rossler system and discovered new phenomena that have been overlooked until now. For the first time the researchers were able to measure the fine grain process that leads from disorder to […]

    Row by row…

    Just as children follow a rule to line up single file after recess, some materials use an underlying rule to assemble on surfaces one row at a time, according to the study done at PNNL, the University of Washington, UCLA, and elsewhere. Nucleation – that first formation step – is pervasive in ordered structures across […]

  • Do lizards dream like us?

    Do lizards dream like us? Researchers have confirmed that lizards exhibit two sleep states, just like humans, other mammals, and birds. They corroborated the conclusions of a 2016 study on the bearded dragon and conducted the same sleep investigation on another lizard, the Argentine tegu. Their findings nevertheless point out differences between species, which raises […]

  • Learning the foundations…

    Contrary to widely-held opinion, taking high school calculus isn’t necessary for success later in college calculus – what’s more important is mastering the prerequisites, algebra, geometry, and trigonometry – that lead to calculus. That’s according to a study of more than 6,000 college freshmen at 133 colleges. (1) Great line of reasoning. Except that we […]
