New innovations in cell-free biotechnology

( Northwestern University) Professor Michael Jewett's new platform to conduct cell-free protein synthesis could lead to improved quality of manufactured protein therapeutics and biomaterials.

NASA tracks a weaker comma-shaped Tropical Cyclone Marcus

( NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Tropical Cyclone Marcus continues to parallel Western Australia and remain far from the coast, while weakening. NASA's Aqua satellite analyzed the storm in infrared light and saw a comma-shaped Marcus.

Scientists develop elastic metal rods to treat scoliosis

( National University of Science and Technology MISIS) NUST MISIS scientists jointly with their colleagues from the Ecole de Technologie Superiore (Montreal, Canada) have experienced a new combination of alloy processing that produces solid and durable implants that are fully compatible with the human body. The research article is published in the Journal of Alloys and Compounds.

Diagnosing breast cancer using red light

( The Optical Society) At the OSA Biophotonics Congress: Biomedical Optics meeting, held 3-6 April in Hollywood, Florida, USA, researchers from Milan, Italy, will report an advance in instrument development that increases the sensitivity of OM by as much as 1000-fold.

NASA sees Tropical Cyclone Nora become a hurricane

( NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA satellite imagery showed that Tropical Cyclone Nora developed an eye as it strengthened into a hurricane north of Australia. NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite provided forecasters with a visible image of the storm, formerly named Tropical Cyclone 16P.

Gas hydrate research: Advanced knowledge and new technologies

( Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel (GEOMAR)) Gas hydrates are considered a potential source of energy. Over the past ten years, the SUGAR ("Submarine Gas Hydrate Deposits") project has significantly expanded the basic knowledge of gas hydrates and seen the development of new technologies for gas hydrate exploration, production and associated environmental monitoring. Now the project is concluding with a final conference at the Helmholtz Centre Potsdam - German Research Center for Geosciences.

Lithuanians created technology for treating oily water: exceeds requirements 10 times

( Kaunas University of Technology) Wastewater cleaning technology created at Kaunas University of Technology (KTU), Lithuania efficiently cleans water from oil products leaving it virtually pollution-free (the concentration of oil discharge in treated water is about 0.2 mg/L). Given the efficiency, the technology is much cheaper than the alternatives currently known in the market.Biological wastewater treatment technology developed at KTU employs microorganisms, which can adapt to environment and synthesize ferments to 'digest' oil products turning them into CO2 and H2O.

Radiologist uses virtual reality as powerful training tool

( University of Virginia Health System) Physicians, trainees and even laypeople can now stand right beside an expert radiologist as he performs one of the most difficult medical procedures of its kind -- in virtual reality.

Luxembourg researchers refute 20-year-old assumptions in solar cell production

( University of Luxembourg) Research led by the University of Luxembourg investigated the manufacturing process of solar cells. The researchers proved that assumptions on chemical processes that were commonplace among researchers and producers for the past 20 years are, in fact, inaccurate. The physicists published their findings in the renowned scientific journal Nature Communications.

Exposed: The path of ransomware payments

( NYU Tandon School of Engineering) The murky ecosystem of ransomware payments comes into focus in a forthcoming paper by university and industry researchers. It provides the first detailed account of the ransomware payment ecosystem, from initial attack to cash-out. Ransomware attacks, which encrypt and hold a computer user's files hostage in exchange for payment, extort millions of dollars from individuals each month, and comprise one of the fastest-growing forms of cyber attack.
