A new experimental study solves the unsolved mystery of ‘nanobubbles’

Schematic diagram of Xe nanobubbles obtained by molecular dynamics simulation. Formation events correspond to high Xe concentrations (about 30 water molecules per atom). Image credit: Jaramillo-Granada, Reyes-Figueroa and Ruiz-Suarez. Nanobubbles are extremely small (i.e. nanoscale) air cavities observed by some physicists in aqueous solutions, usually after a particular substance has dissolved in them. While some …

NASA solves Voyager 1 data glitch mystery, but finds another

NASA’s Voyager 1 probe finally makes sense again in interstellar space. After months of sending junk data about its health to flight controllers on Earth, Voyager 1, 45, is again sending back clear telemetry data about its state beyond the solar system. NASA knew the problem was somewhere in the spacecraft’s Attitude Articulation and Control …

DNA analysis solves mystery of corpse found in medieval well

DNA analysis solves mystery of corpse found in medieval well

The identities of the remains of six adults and 11 children and why they ended up in a medieval well have puzzled archaeologists. Unlike other mass burials where the skeletons are evenly arranged, the placement and mixing of the corpses are odd—most likely because their heads were thrown away shortly after their death. To learn …
