    Storing data in DNA brings nature into the digital universe

    Original @ Phys.org – latest science and technology news stories Humanity is producing data at an unimaginable rate, to the point that storage technologies can’t keep up. Every five years, the amount of data we’re producing increases 10-fold, including photos and videos. Not all of it needs to be stored, but manufac… [...]

    Searching for invisible particles with the ATLAS Experiment

    Original @ Phys.org – latest science and technology news stories As the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) smashes protons at a centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV, it creates a rich assortment of particles that are identified through the signature of their interactions with the ATLAS detector. But what if the collider produce… [...]

    Investigation tests new methods of water recycling in space

    Original @ Phys.org – latest science and technology news stories Sometimes the best solution to a complex problem is the simplest one. That’s the approach that the Capillary Structures for Exploration Life Support (Capillary Structures) team took when designing the fluid physics investigation aboard the Internationa… [...]

    Chatting coordinates heterogeneity

    Original @ Phys.org – latest science and technology news stories Bacterial cells communicate with one another by using chemical signal molecules, which they synthesize and secrete into their surroundings. By this means, the behavior of an entire population can be controlled and coordinated. Biophysicists led by Prof… [...]
