A new material has been developed to improve the energy storage capacity of batteries so that laptops, cellphones, electric cars and other mobile devices can be used for longer duration. This new material has been developed by Steven Arnold Klankowski, a doctoral candidate in chemistry, La Crescent,...
Greenhouse gas carbon dioxide acts like an atmospheric blanket trapping Earth's heat and abundance of carbon dioxide can alter the global climate. And warming climate causes the polar ice to melt thereby causing the sea levels to rise.

NASA's Nuclear spectroscopic Telescope Array or NuSTAR has completed its 100 days journey on Sept 21. NuSTAR is the first telescope designed to focus on high energy, short length X ray lights from some of the most dynamic objects in space like the black holes and supernova remnants.
A high powered laser was used by a multi university team based at UC Santa Barbara to advance the tool used by scientists to study the world at the atomic level.
The most distant galaxy has been discovered by the combined power of NASA's Spitzer and Hubble space telescopes as well as a cosmic magnification effect.
A second European weather satellite was launched Sept. 17 from the Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan into the polar orbit atop of a Russian Soyuz launcher.
