NASA's first mission to sample an asteroid is moving ahead into development and testing in preparation for its launch in 2016. The hope is that OSIRIS-REx will visit an asteroid called Bennu and return with samples.

NASA’s Pioneer 11 Turns 40

April 11, 2013 10:55 am | by NASA | Videos

Forty years ago, in April 1973, a small, ambitious spacecraft launched from Cape Canaveral, heading towards the third-brightest point of light in the night sky.

Scientists Develop a Numerical Model of Complex Fluids

March 8, 2013 1:28 pm | by Technische Universitaet Muenchen | Videos

The unusual behavior of complex fluids is part of our daily life: cake dough climbs up the stirring bar, ketchup becomes liquid when you shake it. Now, a team has developed a numerical model of such liquids. They describe it in an issue of "Physical Review Letters.”

Scientists Learn How Fast Molecules Move in Cells

January 31, 2013 5:32 pm | by Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences | Videos

The rate of chemical processes in cells is dictated by the speed of movement (diffusion) of molecules needed for a given reaction. A team managed to determine– for the first time– the diffusion coefficients for virtually all the proteins occurring in Escherichia coli. The method can adapted for virtually any cell and every molecule.


Nanotech Research Yields Bouncing Liquid Metal Marbles

January 14, 2013 1:54 pm | by Sunanda Creagh, The Conversation | Videos

Coating liquid metal droplets in a nanoparticle mix creates an extra strong non-stick conductive material that retains its shape even under high impact. The breakthrough paves the way for new developments in soft electronics.

Solving Computational Chemistry Challenges

December 16, 2008 10:16 am | Videos

As technology provides computational chemists with exponential improvements in computational capability, they are finding ways to employ the new power to investigate formerly unaddressable research problems, using new and improved application software to run larger simulations or more complex analyses on larger and more diverse data sets.

Next Generation Sequencing: Elements for Success

October 23, 2008 9:04 am | Videos

This webcast addresses directions for next-generation sequencing, solutions available to provide the scalable HPC infrastructure demanded by the research, and successful implementation of next-generation sequencing in a clinical and translational research environment.

Removing Roadblocks to Chromatographic Method Development and Validation

October 22, 2008 11:17 am | Videos

Validating pharmaceutical chromatographic methods are time-consuming, error-prone processes. And, they are riddled with compliance concerns. As a result, laboratory productivity decreases while both the time and costs associated with bringing products to market increases.
