grapheneA pint of what he is drinking please…

Not only is the graphene sensor 1,000 times more sensitive to light than current imaging sensors found in today’s cameras, it also uses 10 times less energy as it operates at lower voltages. When mass produced, graphene sensors are estimated to cost at least five times cheaper.

Man suffering from pollen allergyI now know why I have hay-fever…

The UK is on track for its coldest spring in more than 30 years and there are consequences – some rather unexpected.

It’s cold, it’s raining, it’s sunny, it’s snowing, it’s cold, it’s raining and so on. That just about sums up the UK’s weather over the past few months.

Early figures from the Met Office show spring is on course to have been the coldest in the UK since 1979. The late spring has had knock-on effects – both expected and unexpected.

Plenty of good coverage over at the NASA site.

As NASA prepares for Curiosity rover landing on Mars, William Shatner shares this thrilling story of NASA’s hardest planetary science mission to date. The video titled, “Grand Entrance,” guides viewers from entry through descent, and after landing.

Looks like Foldit may have come up with a cure for Aids…

In the journal Nature Structural and Molecular Biology, scientists write that they have been puzzled by the protein’s structure for over a decade.

But it took the online community just a few days to produce the enzyme’s model.

I’m concerned about the number of people who seem to hold these kind of extreme views, being in a position to influence education.  Only in America of course:

He describes scholars such as Dr Giberson as “wolves in sheep’s clothing”. He said: “They are undermining the gospel. If Adam and Eve aren’t literal, Christianity is totally meaningless. You might as well throw the Bible away.”
