Last gasp hotel

The great smog of 1952 caused Parliament to pass the landmark 'Clean Air Act' of 1956, to improve air quality. It was finally repealed in 1993 to consolidate its legislation with other related enactments, especially the Clean Air Act 1968. The current government...

Deceit and theft in micro-plastic research?

Deceit and theft in micro-plastic research?

The study probably helped propagate some of the Facebook sharing of articles that described the damage plastic microparticles did to fish but after a report from a Swedish ethics committee the authors Peter Eklöv and Oona Lönnstedt are retracting their controversial...

The long road of signalling research

Main stream media heralds each new discovery of a signalling molecule as a breakthrough, the reality is that it's a long road to truly elucidating how each discovery fits within their environment.The Ser and Thr kinase AKT, also known as protein kinase B (PKB), was...

“The bees solved the task in a different way than what was demonstrated, suggesting that observer bees did not simply copy what they saw, but improved on it,” Dr Olli J. Loukola Queen Mary, University of London's School of Biological and Chemical Sciences...

A new way to calibrate the postmortem clock?

A new way to calibrate the postmortem clock?

It's almost in every detective film or novel, the line where the detective asks the pathologist 'What was the time of death?'. The postmortem interval (PMI) as it is defined contains the answer to that question. There are several methods to evaluate the...

Rock solid: Trapping carbon dioxide

"Capturing carbon dioxide is only part of the problem, how do you store the gas once you trap it?" The amount of research into global warming and how to reduce the increasing carbon dioxide (CO2) has grown exponentially over the last 15 years. Carbon...

    Researchers have announced the first peer-reviewed research outlining the successful transplant of genetically modified, clinical-grade pig kidneys into a brain-dead human individual, replacing the recipient's native kidneys. These positive results demonstrate how xenotransplantation could address […]

    Often portrayed as destructive monsters that hold light captive, black holes take on a less villainous role in the latest research from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope. A black hole at the heart of the dwarf galaxy Henize 2-10 is creating stars rather than gobbling them up. The black hole is […]

    A team of researchers has discovered a jumping behavior that is entirely new to insect larvae, and there is evidence that it is occurring in a range of species -- we just haven't noticed it before.

    Researchers have achieved a key milestone toward the development of a fault-tolerant quantum computer. They were able to demonstrate a two-qubit gate fidelity of 99.5 percent -- higher than the 99 percent considered to be the threshold for building fault-tolerant computers -- using electron spin […]

    New research has revealed how giant 50-ton sauropod dinosaurs, like Diplodocus, evolved from much smaller ancestors, like the wolf-sized Thecodontosaurus.

Header Banner: On 4 July 2012, the ATLAS and CMS experiments at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider announced they had each observed a new particle in the mass region around 126 GeV. This particle is consistent with the Higgs boson predicted by the Standard Model. The Higgs boson, as proposed within the Standard Model, is the simplest manifestation of the Brout-Englert-Higgs mechanism. Other types of Higgs bosons are predicted by other theories that go beyond the Standard Model. On 8 October 2013 the Nobel prize in physics (link is external) was awarded jointly to François Englert and Peter Higgs “for the theoretical discovery of a mechanism that contributes to our understanding of the origin of mass of subatomic particles, and which recently was confirmed through the discovery of the predicted fundamental particle, by the ATLAS and CMS experiments at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider”. The DarkDrug logo shows the Milky Way, the galaxy we call home and yet only explored a fraction of.
