Three US Scientists Bag Nobel Prize For Developing Computer Models Of Chemical Processes

In recent years, technology has come about to play a huge role in all sciences, ranging from physics to chemistry, biology, genetics and more. This was manifest in the Nobel Prize for Chemistry this year which went to three US scientists Martin Karplus, Michael Levitt and Arieh Warshel for developing computer-based models of certain chemical processes.

Researchers Get First Images Of Molecular Changes During Chemical Reaction

Most of the research related to Chemistry is based on fairly indirect information. For instance, during a chemical reaction, we are able to infer in theory of the exact structural changes that molecules may undergo. But now, for the first time, researchers have been able to get actual images of these changes in molecular structures.

New Study Says Earthquakes Turn Water Into Gold

One of the major goals of alchemy in the Middle Ages was to create gold from other, less expensive materials. Now it appears, if alchemists of that generation could have harnessed the power of the Earth, they might have been successful. A new study says that earthquakes can turn water into gold due to instant vaporization!

[Breakthrough] Scientists Turn Air Into Petrol

Scientists have achieved a breakthrough in conversion. Recently, scientists at Air Fuel Synthesis (AFS), a small British company in Stockton-on-Tees claim that they have produced petrol from air. Since August till now, scientists have made "five liters of petrol" from Carbon Dioxide (CO2) and water vapor. Get the details with the process inside.

SIM-Sized Chip Satellites

A group of Cornell-developed, fingernail-sized satellites may travel to Saturn within the next decade nd as they flutter down through its atmosphere, they will collect data about chemistry, radiation and particle impacts.Developed over a period of three years by a team of undergraduates at Cornell University, the Sprite chips could eventually be used for communication and flying in clusters like tiny space plankton.............
