Fast energy transport between unlike partners

Chemists have combined different dye molecules in aggregates and thereby observed surprising properties. Their discovery may help to use sunlight more efficiently for the generation of energy.

Efficient organic solar cells with very low driving force

Organic solar cells have now been developed with a significantly lower driving force and faster charge separation than previous cells, report scientists.

Exhaling Earth: Scientists closer to forecasting volcanic eruptions

On average, 40 volcanoes on land erupt into the atmosphere each month, while scores of others on the seafloor erupt into the ocean. A new time-lapse animation uniting volcanoes, earthquakes, and gaseous emissions reveals unforgettably the large, rigid plates that make the outermost shell of Earth and suggests the immense heat and energy beneath them seeking to escape.

Satellites see Hurricane Matthew heading for the Bahamas

Satellites from NASA and NOAA have been tracking and analyzing powerful Hurricane Matthew since its birth just east of the Leeward Islands on Sept. 28. On October 4, 2016, Hurricane Matthew made landfall on southwestern Haiti as a category-4 storm -- the strongest storm to hit the Caribbean nation in more than 50 years.

Beer eases final moments for euthanized invertebrates, study finds

A scientist sought a humane way to end the lives of snails in a laboratory. She found a dip in a few ounces of beer or a 5 percent ethyl alcohol solution sedates the snails. Then they don't exhibit signs of physical distress during a terminal dunk in 95 percent ethyl alcohol.

Site of radiocarbon dating discovery named historic landmark

It was while working in the Kent Laboratory building in the 1940s that researchers developed radiocarbon dating—an innovative method to measure the age of organic materials. Scientists soon used the technique on materials ranging from the dung of a giant sloth from a Nevada cave; seaweed and algae from Monte Verde, Chile, the oldest archaeological site in the Western Hemisphere; the Shroud of Turin; and the meteorite that created the Henbury Craters in northern Australia.

Decoding of tarsier genome reveals ties to humans

Tarsiers -- tiny, carnivorous primates -- are our distant cousins, according to scientists who sequenced and analyzed the tarsier genome. Their findings place tarsiers on the evolutionary branch that leads to monkeys, great apes and humans.

Spring starting earlier in U.S. national parks, study finds

Spring is beginning earlier than its historical average in three-quarters of United States' national parks studied in new research that employed models created by a climatologist.
