Capturing carbon dioxide

Researchers from Japan and China developed a new energy-efficient
CO2 capture method to help mitigate climate change.

Molecular gates

Shells go nuclear

Artificial mussels used to detect metallic pollutants in the ocean can also measure radioactive pollution.

Mollusk monitors

Worms surf electric fields

Tiny roundworm larvae surf electric fields to hitch rides on passing insects and travel farther.   

Electric joyride

Brain repair

Regeneration in fruit fly brain cells holds clues to new therapies for repairing damage or disease in ageing human brains.

Creating matter from light

Simulations test how matter arises from collisions of light particles and other theories of particle physics.   

Let there be matter!

We spoke with Mikas Matsuzawa, International Communications Manager for Hiroshima University, about how she uses our monitoring service and why it helps her in her day-to-day job.
