As renewable source of energy that is low on carbon emissions and produces electricity cleaner, without the carbon debt. Use of nuclear energy is responsible for 10% of the electricity produced in the world. One problem is nuclear fuel to power their reactors and it degrades during periods of continuous use.
Using chemistry to make solar energy a better and more efficient power source is not easy. Recent developments have allowed scientists, to use the whole spectrum of light not just several to create hydrogen.
Quasars are one of the most boisterous objects in the universe, and even here on earth astronomers can detect them from lightyears away. Things are now on the weirder side of quantum mechanics as physicists from the University of Vienna and MIT have dropped a new surprise on the subject.
When more is learned, there will be a stark realization that everything learned only leads to more questions and dead ends. This is the dilemma of physicists, and the attempt to unveil the paradigms of the universe is getting bumpy.
The melting temperature of graphite and graphene are high and unfamiliar. Recent experiments show a solid to gas phase transformation that skips the liquid part. Could learning more about this prove useful?
Have you ever woken up in the morning and wondered what the point of getting out of bed is? Have you avoided social engagements because they seem pointless? Have you ignored or missed opportunities simply because you couldn’t see any reason to accomplish them? In other words, have you felt empty? Don’t worry - most of us have felt empty at one point or another. In some cases, emptiness is simply a case of not having found meaning or purpose in your life. In other cases, it’s a sign of something more serious, like a psychological or emotional problem.
Research by scientists and engineers might have panned out, using boron to contain super-heated plasma. In the future, tokamaks will be made to contain the power of a star to provide power for a long time.
