Self-healing tech charges up performance for silicon-containing battery anodes

Researchers have found a way to apply self-healing technology to lithium-ion batteries to make them more reliable and last longer.

NASA Astronauts Inducted into Hall of Fame, Live May 19 on NASA Television

Two NASA astronauts, both with one-of-a-kind career credits, will be honored Friday, May 19, when they are inducted into the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame. The ceremony will air live on NASA Television and the agency’s website at 1 p.m. EDT.

Hydrogen bonds directly detected for the first time

For the first time, scientists have succeeded in studying the strength of hydrogen bonds in a single molecule using an atomic force microscope.

Physics may bring faster solutions for tough computational problems

Researchers have used an elegant method based on statistical mechanics -- called the vertex model -- to create more efficient algorithms to solve complex problems more quickly. The research could solve problems in machine learning, circuit optimization and other major computational challenges.

NASA Invites Media to Robotics Mining Competition at KSC Visitor Complex

Teams of undergraduate and graduate students from throughout the nation will demonstrate their excavator robots May 22-26 at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex near NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Precision control of superconductivity in atomic layers using magnetic molecules

A research team has succeeded in precisely controlling the transition temperature of atomic-scale-thick superconductors using magnetic organic molecules. The team also identified the control mechanism.

X-rays from copper source set new gold standard for measuring industrial materials

Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have produced and precisely measured a spectrum of X-rays using a new, state-of-the-art machine. The instrument they used to measure the X-rays took 20 years to develop, and will help scientists working at the agency make some of the world's most accurate measurements of materials for use in everything from bridges to pharmaceuticals. It will also ensure that the measurements of materials from other labs around the world are as reliable as possible.

NASA Holds Media Teleconference Today on Exploration Mission-1 Status

NASA will provide an update on the status of Exploration Mission-1, the first integrated flight of NASA’s Space Launch System (SLS) rocket and Orion spacecraft, during a media teleconference at 3 p.m. EDT today, May 12.

Electrostatic design of materials: A fundamentally new approach

Researchers have mapped out a radically new approach for designing optical and electronic properties of materials.

X-rays from copper source set new gold standard for measuring industrial materials

With this new, unique X-ray machine, NIST can make some of the world's most accurate measurements, and calibrate everyone else's X-rays, too.
