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 It was finally repealed in 1993 to consolidate its legislation with other related enactments, especially the Clean Air Act 1968.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

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...

  • Saturn's tilt caused by its moons, researchers say
    on January, 2021 at 6:21 pm

    Scientists have just shown that the influence of Saturn's satellites can explain the tilt of the rotation axis of the gas giant. Their work also predicts that the tilt will increase even further over the next few billion years.

  • Butterfly wing clap explains mystery of flight
    on January, 2021 at 6:20 pm

    The fluttery flight of butterflies has so far been somewhat of a mystery to researchers, given their unusually large and broad wings relative to their body size. Now researchers have studied the aerodynamics of butterflies in a wind tunnel. The results suggest that butterflies use a highly […]

    Study participants continued to improve their antibodies months after initial infection, potentially due to exposure to remnants of the virus hidden in the gut.

  • Much of Earth's nitrogen was locally sourced
    on January, 2021 at 6:17 pm

    Scientists show evidence that nitrogen acquired during Earth's formation came from both the inner and outer regions of the protoplanetary disk. The study has implications for signs of potential habitability of exoplanets.

  • A 'super-puff' planet like no other
    on January, 2021 at 4:31 pm

    Astronomers discover that the core mass of exoplanet WASP-107b is much lower than previously thought possible for a gas-giant planet.
