More precise measurements of this emitted light could unearth clues that might finally help solve the mystery of why there is so much less antimatter than normal matter in the universe, researchers say." Antimatter https://home.cern/topics/antimatter "Dirac interpreted the equation to mean that for every particle there exists a corresponding antiparticle, exactly matching the particle but with opposite charge. For the electron there should be an "antielectron", for example, identical in every way but with a positive electric charge. The insight opened the possibility of entire galaxies and universes made of antimatter." Physicists have observed the light spectrum of antimatter for first time http://www.sciencealert.com/physicists-have-observed-the-light-spectrum-of-antimatter-for-first-time "After two decades of trying, physicists at CERN have reported the first ever measurement of the light emitted by an antimatter atom, revealing that antihydrogen is the exact mirror image of regular hydrogen. The result, which finally confirms what has long been predicted by the laws of physics, opens up a new way of testing Einstein's special theory of relativity, and could help us answer one of the biggest mysteries in modern physics - why is there so much more regular matter than antimatter in the Universe?" ____________________ Seeker inspires us to see the world through the lens of science and evokes a sense of curiosity, optimism and adventure.

The source of their fascination, and no little excitement, was light. Not the sunlight that made the snow glint on the mountains in the Aosta valley, but light inside the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) across the border near Geneva. The machine had detected more photons than expected as it smashed particles beneath the quiet Swiss countryside. The brief flashes of light might be the first glimpse of the next big discovery." ____________________ DNews is dedicated to satisfying your curiosity and to bringing you mind-bending stories & perspectives you won't find anywhere else!

But when they tested the new polymer – a thin, light blue square the size of a postage stamp – something strange happened.” Next Stop: Ultracapacitor Buses https://www.technologyreview.com/s/415773/next-stop-ultracapacitor-buses/ “Unlike a conventional trolley bus that has to continually touch an overhead power line, Sinautec’s ultracapacitor buses take big sips of electricity every two or three miles at designated charging stations, which double as bus stops. When at these stations, a collector on the top of the bus rises a few feet and touches an overhead charging line. Within a couple of minutes, the ultracapacitor banks stored under the bus seats are fully charged.” ____________________ Elements is more than just a science show.

Because all cells in the body contain exactly the same DNA, samples can be taken from almost anywhere in the body, including skin, hair follicles, blood and other bodily fluids." How is genetic testing done? https://ghr.nlm.nih.gov/primer/testing/procedure Once a person decides to proceed with genetic testing, a medical geneticist, primary care doctor, specialist, or nurse practitioner can order the test. Genetic testing is often done as part of a genetic consultation. Genetic tests are performed on a sample of blood, hair, skin, amniotic fluid (the fluid that surrounds a fetus during pregnancy), or other tissue. The family history: the first genetic test, and still useful after all those years? http://www.nature.com/gim/journal/v14/n1/full/gim0b013e3182310bcfa.html#ref-link-16 "The family history has its origins in genealogy and over the past century has become embedded in clinical practice. Its importance in specialized circumstances is unquestioned but largely untested. Moreover, the relevance of the family history to common diseases, especially in an era of genomic markers that convey risk and the emphasis on 'personalized medicine,' must be given careful scrutiny." ____________________ DNews is dedicated to satisfying your curiosity and to bringing you mind-bending stories & perspectives you won't find anywhere else!

How Creativity And Mental Illness Are Linked

The solar sector nearly doubled the amount of solar power installed last year compared to 2015, GTM Research and the Solar Energy Industries Association said in their annual analysis of the US solar sector. Indeed, more solar power was added last year to the nation's electricity grid than any other source of energy - a milestone for the burgeoning industry." Liquid storage of solar energy - more effective than ever before https://phys.org/news/2017-03-liquid-storage-solar-energy-effective.html "Many consider the sun the energy source of the future. But one challenge is that it is difficult to store solar energy and deliver the energy 'on demand". A research team from Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden, has shown that it is possible to convert the solar energy directly into energy stored in the bonds of a chemical fluid - a so-called molecular solar thermal system. The liquid chemical makes it possible to store and transport the stored solar energy and release it on demand, with full recovery of the storage medium." Make perovskite solar cells stable https://www.nature.com/news/make-perovskite-solar-cells-stable-1.21807 "The hunt is on to find a cheap and safe solar-cell technology. Crystalline silicon is the basis for 90% of commercial photovoltaic devices, which use semiconductors to convert light into electricity. But silicon photovoltaics are still expensive to process, their manufacture produces toxic by-products and they are cumbersome to install.

It's the thinnest electronic material ever invented, consisting of a layer of carbon atoms just a single atom thick -- the atoms are arranged in a hexagonal pattern. It weighs almost nothing, coming in at only 0.77 grams for a square meter. But it's no lightweight. Graphene is 100 times stronger than steel of the same thickness.

The hard ways - and there are dozens - all have their own complications. Some require high temperatures and long 'cooking' times, others require the use of hazardous chemicals like sulfuric acid or hydrazine. The easy way comes from physicists at Kansas State University, and the process is admirably straightforward: Fill a steel containment unit with oxygen and hydrocarbon gas, detonate it with the spark and, voila, a bucketload of soot-like graphene.

How Ferroelectricity Could Change the Way We Store Data
 
04:14
This hidden ferroelectric “particle” has evaded scientists for years, until recent studies have now discovered it and hacking into their potential. Here’s How We Could Store Data on a Single Atom - https://youtu.be/7FYmHy85A7I Read More: A rhombohedral ferroelectric phase in epitaxially strained Hf0.5Zr0.5O2 thin films https://www.nature.com/articles/s41563-018-0196-0 “Hafnia-based thin films are a favoured candidate for the integration of robust ferroelectricity at the nanoscale into next-generation memory and logic devices. This is because their ferroelectric polarization becomes more robust as the size is reduced, exposing a type of ferroelectricity whose mechanism still remains to be understood.” Ferroelectricity -- an 80-year-old mystery solved https://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2018-10/lu-f-a102218.php “Only now in 2018 have researchers successfully demonstrated that hypothetical 'particles' that were proposed by Franz Preisach in 1935 actually exist. In an article published in Nature Communications, scientists from the universities in Linköping and Eindhoven show why ferroelectric materials act as they do.” Modern Physics of Ferroelectrics: Essential Background https://link.springer.com/chapter/10.1007/978-3-540-34591-6_1 “The main families of ferroelectric oxides, including perovskite compounds and solid solutions, lithium niobate, layered oxides, magnetic ferroelectric oxides, and electronic ferroelectrics are presented and their crystal structures and polarizations given.” ____________________ Visit the Seeker website https://www.seeker.com/videos Elements on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/SeekerElements/ Subscribe now! http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=dnewschannel Seeker on Twitter http://twitter.com/seeker Seeker on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/SeekerMedia/ Seeker http://www.seeker.com/

Is Anything Truly Random?
 
04:49
In 2012, scientists developed a system to predict what number a rolled die would land on. Is anything truly random or is it all predictable? Can Game Theory Help A Presidential Candidate Win? - http://bit.ly/2bMqILU Sign Up For The Seeker Newsletter Here - http://bit.ly/1UO1PxI Read More: On Fair And Randomness http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0890540109001369 "We investigate the relation between the behavior of non-deterministic systems under fairness constraints, and the behavior of probabilistic systems. To this end, first a framework based on computable stopping strategies is developed that provides a common foundation for describing both fair and probabilistic behavior. On the basis of stopping strategies it is then shown that fair behavior corresponds in a precise sense to random behavior in the sense of Martin-Löf's definition of randomness." Predicting A Die Throw http://phys.org/news/2012-09-die.html "Vegas, Monte Carlo, and Atlantic City draw people from around the world who are willing to throw the dice and take their chances. Researchers from the Technical University of Lodz, Poland, have spotted something predictable in the seemingly random throw of the dice." HTG Explains: How Computers Generate Random Numbers http://www.howtogeek.com/183051/htg-explains-how-computers-generate-random-numbers/ "Computers generate random number for everything from cryptography to video games and gambling. There are two categories of random numbers - "true" random numbers and pseudorandom numbers - and the difference is important for the security of encryption systems." ____________________ DNews is dedicated to satisfying your curiosity and to bringing you mind-bending stories & perspectives you won't find anywhere else!

If that were the entire story, it would be of minor interest. But along came Ray Kurzweil, who made an amazing observation: computers have been doubling in power from way before transistors were even invented.” ____________________ Elements is more than just a science show.

Diamond Nuclear Batteries Are Forever… Sort Of

Also known as Atomic Battery and Radioisotope Generator, these batteries generate power in the range of 10 KW to 100 KW. Nuclear batteries has a life span of decades and has the potential to be almost 200 times more efficient than presently available batteries." ‘Diamond-age’ of power generation as nuclear batteries developed http://www.bristol.ac.uk/news/2016/november/diamond-power.html "Tom Scott, Professor in Materials in the University’s Interface Analysis Centre and a member of the Cabot Institute, said: “There are no moving parts involved, no emissions generated and no maintenance required, just direct electricity generation. By encapsulating radioactive material inside diamonds, we turn a long-term problem of nuclear waste into a nuclear-powered battery and a long-term supply of clean energy.”" A 25-Year Battery https://www.technologyreview.com/s/416312/a-25-year-battery/ "Widetronix’s batteries are made up of a metal foil impregnated with tritium isotopes and a thin chip of the semiconductor silicon carbide, which can convert 30 percent of the beta particles that hit it into an electrical current. “Silicon carbide is very robust, and when we thin it down, it becomes flexible,” says Widetronix CEO Jonathan Greene." ____________________ Elements is more than just a science show.
