Each kind of fundamental particle of matter has an antimatter nemesis lurking in the shadows. And true to science-fiction stereotype, if matter and antimatter ever meet, they annihilate in a flash of light.” Scientists trap antimatter long enough to study how it works http://www.theguardian.com/science/2011/jun/05/scientists-create-antimatter-study “In science fiction stories, antimatter pops up everywhere as a power source for spaceships or the active ingredient in diabolical bombs. In real life, though, this mysterious substance is elusive and scientists have never had much of it to play around with.” ____________________ DNews is dedicated to satisfying your curiosity and to bringing you mind-bending stories & perspectives you won't find anywhere else!

They're non-toxic, non-corrosive and could significantly reduce the cost of production." Lithium-Ion Battery Inventor Introduces Fast-Charging, Noncombustible Batteries http://engr.utexas.edu/news/8203-goodenough-batteries "A team of engineers led by 94-year-old John Goodenough, professor in the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin and co-inventor of the lithium-ion battery, has developed the first all-solid-state battery cells that could lead to safer, faster-charging, longer-lasting rechargeable batteries for handheld mobile devices, electric cars and stationary energy storage." BU-204: How do Lithium Batteries Work? http://batteryuniversity.com/learn/article/lithium_based_batteries "Lithium is the lightest of all metals, has the greatest electrochemical potential and provides the largest specific energy per weight. Rechargeable batteries with lithium metal on the anode could provide extraordinarily high energy densities; however, it was discovered in the mid-1980s that cycling produced unwanted dendrites on the anode. These growth particles penetrate the separator and cause an electrical short. The cell temperature would rise quickly and approach the melting point of lithium, causing thermal runaway, also known as 'venting with flame.'" Has lithium-battery genius John Goodenough done it again? Colleagues are skeptical https://qz.com/929794/has-lithium-battery-genius-john-goodenough-done-it-again-colleagues-are-skeptical/ "Researchers have struggled for decades to safely use powerful-but flammable-lithium metal in a battery. Now John Goodenough, the 94-year-old father of the lithium-ion battery, is claiming a novel solution as a blockbuster advance. If it proves out, the invention could allow electric cars to compete with conventional vehicles on sticker price. The improbable solution, described in a new paper from Goodenough and three co-authors, has drawn intense interest from leading science and technology publications." ____________________ Seeker inspires us to see the world through the lens of science and evokes a sense of curiosity, optimism and adventure.

There's A New Form Of Matter That Exists In Four Dimensions!

And two independent teams of scientists claim they've actually created time crystals in the lab based off this blueprint, confirming the existence of an entirely new phase of matter. The discovery might sound pretty abstract, but it heralds in a whole new era in physics - for decades we've been studying matter that's defined as being 'in equilibrium', such as metals and insulators." Physicists Create World's First Time Crystal https://www.technologyreview.com/s/602541/physicists-create-worlds-first-time-crystal/ "Today, we get an answer thanks to the work of Chris Monroe at the University of Maryland in College Park and a few pals, who have created a time crystal in their laboratory for the first time. The basic process for making time crystals is straightforward. The idea is to create a quantum system, such as a group of ions arranged in a ring, and cool them until they are in their lowest energy state. In these circumstances, the laws of physics would suggest that the ring should be perfectly stationary." Viewpoint: How to Create a Time Crystal http://physics.aps.org/articles/v10/5 "The story of time crystals-whose lowest-energy configurations are periodic in time rather than space-epitomizes the creative ideas, controversy, and vigorous discussion that lie at the core of the scientific process. Originally theorized by Frank Wilczek in 2012, time crystals were met with widespread attention, but also a healthy dose of skepticism. This ignited a debate in the literature, culminating in a proof that time crystals cannot exist in thermal equilibrium, as originally imagined by Wilczek. But the tale did not end there." ____________________ DNews is dedicated to satisfying your curiosity and to bringing you mind-bending stories & perspectives you won't find anywhere else!

Since Mass Exists, Can There Be Negative Mass?

Black Holes And Gravitational Waves Might Help Us Find Dark Matter - https://youtu.be/C68b9EGksuI Sign Up For The Seeker Newsletter Here - http://bit.ly/1UO1PxI Read More: Cosmologists Prove Negative Mass Can Exist In Our Universe https://medium.com/the-physics-arxiv-blog/cosmologists-prove-negative-mass-can-exist-in-our-universe-250a980320a7 "Today, Saoussen Mbarek and Manu Paranjape at the Université de Montréal in Canada say they've found a solution to Einstein's theory of general relativity that allows negative mass without breaking any essential assumptions. Their approach means that negative mass can exist in our universe provided there is a reasonable mechanism for producing it, perhaps in pairs of positive and negative mass particles in the early universe." 'Negative mass' created at Washington State University https://news.wsu.edu/2017/04/10/negative-mass-created-at-wsu/ "A negative effective mass can be realized in quantum systems by engineering the dispersion relation. A powerful method is provided by spin-orbit coupling, which is currently at the center of intense research efforts. Here we measure an expanding spin-orbit coupled Bose-Einstein condensate whose dispersion features a region of negative effective mass. We observe a range of dynamical phenomena, including the breaking of parity and of Galilean covariance, dynamical instabilities, and self-trapping." Anti-Gravity and Anti-Mass https://www.npl.washington.edu/av/altvw14.html "But perhaps there is a loophole in the equations of Newton and Einstein. This AV column concerns the idea of negative mass, one such potential loophole. This idea too has been anticipated in science fiction. In Gene Wolfe's The Citadel of the Autarch, the fourth volume of the "Book of the New Sun" trilogy, the Autarch transports the wounded Severian in a "flier". He explains that it obtains its lift from a boulder-size chunk of antimatter iron which is repelled by gravity rather than attracted. The question which we will consider here is whether antimatter, or more generally negative mass, could provide negative gravity and gravitational repulsion in this way." ____________________ Seeker inspires us to see the world through the lens of science and evokes a sense of curiosity, optimism and adventure.

Because all cells in the body contain exactly the same DNA, samples can be taken from almost anywhere in the body, including skin, hair follicles, blood and other bodily fluids." How is genetic testing done? https://ghr.nlm.nih.gov/primer/testing/procedure Once a person decides to proceed with genetic testing, a medical geneticist, primary care doctor, specialist, or nurse practitioner can order the test. Genetic testing is often done as part of a genetic consultation. Genetic tests are performed on a sample of blood, hair, skin, amniotic fluid (the fluid that surrounds a fetus during pregnancy), or other tissue. The family history: the first genetic test, and still useful after all those years? http://www.nature.com/gim/journal/v14/n1/full/gim0b013e3182310bcfa.html#ref-link-16 "The family history has its origins in genealogy and over the past century has become embedded in clinical practice. Its importance in specialized circumstances is unquestioned but largely untested. Moreover, the relevance of the family history to common diseases, especially in an era of genomic markers that convey risk and the emphasis on 'personalized medicine,' must be given careful scrutiny." ____________________ DNews is dedicated to satisfying your curiosity and to bringing you mind-bending stories & perspectives you won't find anywhere else!

How Birth Order Affects Who You Are
 
02:53
Does the order you're born in really affect the kind of person you grow up to be? Trace explains if there's really the impact people say there is. Read More: How Birth Order Affects Your Personality http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=ruled-by-birth-order "But when scientists scrutinized the data, they found that the evidence just did not hold up. In fact, until very recently there were no convincing findings that linked birth order to personality or behavior." Birth Order Affects Child's Intelligence and Personality http://www.livescience.com/6852-birth-order-affects-childs-intelligence-personality.html "Birth order within families has long sparked sibling rivalry, but it might also impact the child's personality and intelligence, a new study suggests. First-borns are typically smarter, while younger siblings get better grades and are more outgoing, the researchers say." How Your Birth Order Can Influence Who You Are http://io9.com/how-your-birth-order-can-influence-who-you-are-1136567036 "As many parents can attest, siblings tend to be more different than alike. Some of this may be the result of our birth order, and how we're subsequently raised. What's more, birth order may influence our health and sexuality too. Here's what you need to know about how your birth rank affects your life." That Elusive Birth Order Effect and What it Means for You http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/fulfillment-any-age/201305/elusive-birth-order-effect-and-what-it-means-you "Only child, first-born, last-born, or somewhere in between. Where do you fit into the birth order of your family? Perhaps you've come to believe the myths both in your family and in psychology as a whole that your character, values, achievement strivings, and life success are determined by the family position that fate, and your parents, awarded to you." THE BIRTH ORDER EFFECT http://www.psychologies.co.uk/family/the-birth-order-effect.html "The order we're born in -- first, middle or youngest child -- is outside our control. So it can make us uncomfortable to think that our birth order can play a significant part in our success, our personality -- the direction of our life. Surely, these things are not set before we even get started?" Birth Order: Fun to Debate, but How Important? http://www.nytimes.com/2009/09/08/health/08klas.html?_r=0 "The older girl was smart, neat and perfectly behaved in school; in her spare time, she won dance trophies.

The New Solution To Our Nuclear Waste Problem
 
02:59
According to some scientists, we must begin using more nuclear power in order to prevent global warming from accelerating. But that creates a huge nuclear waste problem. But scientists at the University of Sheffield think they might have found a very unique way of handing it that could make nuclear waste a problem of the past. Read More: Nuclear Fuel Processes http://www.nei.org/Knowledge-Center/Nuclear-Fuel-Processes "Nuclear power plants do not burn any fuel. Instead, they use uranium fuel, consisting of solid ceramic pellets, to produce electricity through a process called fission." What is Uranium? How Does it Work? http://www.world-nuclear.org/info/Nuclear-Fuel-Cycle/Introduction/What-is-Uranium--How-Does-it-Work-/ "On a scale arranged according to the increasing mass of their nuclei, uranium is one of the heaviest of all the naturally-occurring elements (Hydrogen is the lightest). Uranium is 18.7 times as dense as water." Managing Radioactive Materials & Waste http://www.epa.gov/radiation/manage.html "Any activity that produces or uses radioactive materials generates radioactive waste. Mining, nuclear power generation, and various processes in industry, defense, medicine, and scientific research produce by products that include radioactive waste. Radioactive waste can be in gas, liquid or solid form, and its level of radioactivity can vary. " Radioactive Waste Management http://www.world-nuclear.org/info/Nuclear-Fuel-Cycle/Nuclear-Wastes/Radioactive-Waste-Management/ "All parts of the nuclear fuel cycle produce some radioactive waste (radwaste) and the relatively modest cost of managing and disposing of this is part of the electricity cost, i.e. it is internalised and paid for by the electricity consumers." How does nuclear waste disposal work? http://science.howstuffworks.com/nuclear-waste-disposal.htm "Nuclear waste epitomizes the double-edged sword of modern technology. It's a toxic and radioactive byproduct of nuclear medicine, nuclear weapons manufacturing and nuclear power plants. In short, it's the type of waste that reflects one of humankind's greatest leaps in technology, but it also demonstrates our inability to deal with our own advances." A New Approach to Military Nuclear Waste http://green.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/11/06/a-new-approach-to-military-nuclear-waste/?_r=0 "The United States has many pressing nuclear waste problems, but the worst may be the leftovers from the manufacturing of nuclear weapons."

Glass Offers Improved Means of Storing Nuclear Waste, Researchers Say http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2012/08/120822101115.htm "University of Sheffield researchers have shown, for the first time, that a method of storing nuclear waste normally used only for High Level Waste (HLW), could provide a safer, more efficient, and potentially cheaper, solution for the storage and ultimate disposal of Intermediate Level Waste (ILW)."
