    Researchers reveal jamming in cellular motor protein traffic

    Original @ Phys.org – latest science and technology news stories To keep a cell alive, molecular motor proteins constantly transport building blocks and waste across the cell, along its biopolymer network. Because of the high density of these proteins, jamming effects are believed to affect this transport, just like… [...]

    Chance discovery of forgotten 1960s ‘preprint’ experiment

    Original @ Phys.org – latest science and technology news stories For years, scientists have complained that it can take months or even years for a scientific discovery to be published, because of the slowness of peer review. To cut through this problem, researchers in physics and mathematics have long used “preprint… [...]

    NIST’s next-generation atomic clocks may support official timekeeping

    Original @ Phys.org – latest science and technology news stories For more than a decade, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has been unveiling experimental next-generation atomic clocks. These clocks, based on ytterbium, strontium, aluminum, and mercury atoms, among others, have set records fo… [...]

    How to see the atmosphere

    Original @ Phys.org – latest science and technology news stories How can you see the atmosphere? The answer is blowing in the wind. Tiny particles, known as aerosols, are carried by winds around the globe. This visualization uses data from NASA satellites combined with our knowledge of physics and meteorology to tra… [...]
