  • Giant Larvaceans Transfer Ocean Pollution by Ingesting Plastic Waste
    Pinkie-sized plankton called giant larvaceans can ingest tiny pieces of plastic and pass them in their fecal pellets, which then sink to the bottom of the ocean. This finding suggests larvaceans and other filter feeders may contribute to the more rapid transfer of plastic pollution from the surface to the sea floor.

  • Increasing the Life Span of Soft Robotics with Self-Healing Material
    Scientists have constructed a series of soft robots that can self-heal on demand, leaving almost no traces of weak spots at the location of their “scars.” Their simple manufacturing method takes advantage of durable and recyclable material, and could eventually pave the way to the use of long-lasting and eco-friendly soft robots in dynamic environments.

  • Tracking Down Allergy-Causing T Helper Cells
    Scientists finally tracked down the specific population of T cells that cause problems in allergies. T helper cells protect against pathogens, but a newly-identified subgroup dubbed TH2A are responsible for causing allergic symptoms, and can be distinguished from their protective counterparts by specific markers.

  • Sensor-Equipped Glasses Could Trigger Everyday Tasks in the “Blink of an Eye”
    Glasses paired with a newly designed sensor detect the motion of an intentionally closing eye, activating a range of hands-free tasks including typing or turning on a light. The device may one day help people with locked-in syndrome, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (also known as ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease), and other disabilities, to communicate and perform routine activities.

  • Over 9.1 Billion Tons of Plastic Have Been Produced and Most of it Thrown Away
    More than 9.1 billion tons of plastic have been manufactured since the material was initially mass-produced in the 1950s, according to “the first global analysis of all mass-produced plastics,” which reports the majority has ended up in landfills or natural settings. Global production of plastic has grown rapidly in recent decades, surpassing many other man-made materials, yet there has been a lac...

  • Diesel Fuel Could Go Completely Natural, Thanks to Chemistry
    Scientists have designed a process to transform components of rapeseed oil into the ingredients for a sustainable diesel fuel. This could mean that instead of modifying cars on the road in order for them to run on diesel fuel made from plant sources, existing cars could readily receive this fuel at the pump.

    Spraying insecticides indoors in locations identified as virus hotspots reduced future transmission of the dengue virus by up to 96%, a new analysis of an outbreak of the virus in Cairns, Australia, finds. The insecticides can last for months on treated surfaces. Pinpointing likely exposure sites as officials in Cairns did is a method that could be used to curb other mosquito-borne viruses, like Z...
