A London Based Startup Is Tackling the Indoor Air Pollution With Innovative Material Science

Airlite is a start-up which has developed unique products to tackle the indoor air pollution as well as in the small public areas. They have basically designed a paint which is VOC (Volatile organic compounds) free, made from natural materials and which reduces the air pollution by neutralizing pollutants like nitrogen oxide and nitrogen dioxide. 

USC Stem Cell scientists obtain “how to” guide for producing hair follicles

How does the skin develop follicles and eventually sprout hair? A USC-led study, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), addresses this question using insights gleaned from organoids, 3D assemblies of cells possessing rudimentary skin structure and function--including the ability to grow hair.

Researchers From Taiwan Has Discovered A New Mechanism of Memory Formation

There is an old Chinese saying that goes like this: “Once bitten by a snake, you will fear grass rope for ten years”. If a fortunate individual bitten by a poisonous snake managed to survive, the shape of the snake and the sense of danger will be associated together and stored into memory.

Stanford Professor Creates An Artificial Eclipse To Image Extrasolar Planets

As anyone anticipating this month’s eclipse knows, one way to dim a star is to block it with something else – the moon, perhaps. Or in the case of distant stars whose light masks orbiting exoplanets, a shade-throwing satellite might do.

Science Beam – using computer vision to extract PDF data

There’s a vast trove of science out there locked inside the PDF format. From preprints to peer-reviewed literature and historical research, millions of scientific manuscripts today can only be found in a print-era format that is effectively inaccessible to the web of interconnected online services and APIs that are increasingly becoming the digital scaffold of today’s research infrastructure.

A Story of a Science Researcher Moving Into Industry

As per the OECD survey, US produces at least twice as many Ph.D. graduates compared Germany. According to the data around 67,449 graduated with a Ph.D. in 2014 from the US compared to 28,147 from Germany followed by UK, India, and Japan.

An Israeli Company is Generating the Water from Air

Our planet is covered by almost 70% of the water, and it is easy to consider that it will always be abundant. Nonetheless, freshwater—the substance we drink, bath in, irrigate our farms with—is incredibly rare. Only 3% of the world’s water is fresh water, and two-thirds of that is tucked away in frozen glaciers or otherwise inaccessible for our usage.
