engineering professor Julie Crockett analyzes water as it bounces like a ball and rolls down a ramp Researchers discover a way for temperature gradients in fluids to move objects Researchers at MIT have discovered a new way of harnessing temperature gradients in fluids to propel objects In the natural world the mechanism may influence the motion of icebergs floating on the sea and rocks moving through How the kettle got its whistle Phys org Researchers have finally worked out where the noise that makes kettles whistle actually comes from a problem which has puzzled scientists for more than 100 years Morphing composite material has mighty potential w Video Phys org Heating a sheet of plastic may not bring it to life but it sure looks like it does in new experiments at Rice University Self steering particles go with the flow MIT chemical engineers have designed tiny particles that can steer themselves along preprogrammed trajectories and align themselves to flow through the center of a microchannel making it possible to control the particles University physicists study urine splash back and offer best tactics for men w Video Phys org A team of four physicists at Brigham Young

Germany and Kobe University in Japan has determined that the Brazil nut effect is less pronounced as gravity is reduced The team Chasing the black holes of the ocean According to researchers from ETH Zurich and the University of Miami some of the largest ocean eddies on Earth are mathematically equivalent to the mysterious black holes of space These eddies are so tightly shielded by What makes flying snakes such gifted gliders Animal flight behavior is an exciting frontier for engineers to both apply knowledge of aerodynamics and to learn from nature s solutions to operating in the air

that it s possible to make a tiny fluid droplet levitate on the surface of a vibrating bath walking or bouncing across propelled by Researchers develop printable lasers Phys org A way of printing lasers using everyday inkjet technology has been created by scientists The development has a wide range of possible applications ranging from biomedical testing to laser arrays for displays Microswimmers Micron scale swimming robots could deliver drugs carry cargo using simple motion Phys org When you re just a few microns long swimming can be difficult At that size scale the viscosity of water is more like that of honey and momentum can t be relied upon to maintain forward motion Clues to foam formation could help find oil Blowing bubbles in the backyard is one thing and quite another when searching for oil That distinction is at the root of new research by Rice University scientists who describe in greater detail than ever precisely how those Most precise measurement of reactor antineutrino spectrum reveals intriguing surprise Members of the International Daya Bay Collaboration who track the production and flavor shifting behavior of electron antineutrinos generated at a nuclear power complex in China have obtained the most precise measurement A new form of frozen water Scientists reveal new ice with record low density Amid the season known for transforming Nebraska into an outdoor ice rink a University of Nebraska Lincoln led research team has predicted a new molecular form of the slippery stuff that even Mother Nature has never borne Physicists create
