A new way to turn heat into energy

Ohio State University

An international team of scientists has figured out how to capture heat and turn it into electricity. The discovery, published last week in the journal Science Advances, could create more efficient energy generation from heat in things like car exhaust, interplanetary space probes and industrial processes.

Water May Be Scarce for New Power Plants in Asia

Ohio State University

Climate change and over-tapped waterways could leave developing parts of Asia without enough water to cool power plants in the near future, new research indicates. The study found that existing and planned power plants that burn coal for energy could be vulnerable. The work was published today in the journal Energy and Environment Science.

Joachim Messing, Renowned Rutgers Scientist, Dead at 73

Rutgers University-New Brunswick

Joachim Messing, an internationally renowned Rutgers University scientist who sought to end hunger, protect the environment and advance medicine, died Friday, Sept. 13. Jo Messing, director of the Waksman Institute of Microbiology since 1988, made pioneering contributions that underpin the modern fields of genetics, genomics and evolutionary biology. He created the full suite of tools for “shotgun” sequencing of DNA, an approach that vastly empowered the advance of the genomic era of biology
