The future of computing could exist in a tablespoon of liquid

What do you think of when you think of technology, computing, data storage, and all that goes with it? We live in a world of hard drives and solid-state technology, all silicon-and-copper based. But what if that all changed? Researchers

Bats use polarised light to find their way home

At sunset, a distinctive pattern of polarised light sends a dark band across the sky, visible only to those who can see it. Scientists have known for a while that birds, insects and amphibians can see these polarised light patterns

Engineers create the world’s darkest material

Never mind pink – ‘super black’ is the new, well, black. Engineers at Surrey Nanosystems have created a new ‘super black’ coating. Originally developed for applications in space due to its low mass, ability to withstand a range of temperatures and an

Signs of planets that are ‘just right’ may be wrong after all

While the Goldilocks planets I’ve written about before are still possible, recent news indicates that some of the ‘signs’ of Goldilocks planets could just be events happening within the star itself. Scientists at Penn State University have proved that signals thought

Finding the secret behind supermagnet stars

Here on Earth, we live on a giant magnet, created from magnetic fields flowing in the super-hot molten iron core and offering up a number of useful properties that lead to anything from protection from solar radiation to the way

Bridging the pseudogap: a small step forward in understanding superconductivity

A team of scientists from Brookhaven National Laboratory have linked, for the first time, a weird electron arrangement that occurs just before a material becomes superconductive, and the way in which the electron’s movements in a material seem to be

New gravitational evidence makes waves as proof of the Big Bang

It would be hard to keep up a Physics blog and not write about this most recent story, although I admit I’m a little behind the rest. Researchers believe that gravitational wave signals are proof of a key component of
