Thank the Moon for Earth’s Lengthening Day

University of Wisconsin-Madison

A new study that reconstructs the deep history of our planet’s relationship to the moon shows that 1.4 billion years ago, a day on Earth lasted just over 18 hours. This is at least in part because the moon was closer and changed the way the Earth spun around its axis.

From Leaves to Clouds: Revealing How Trees’ Emissions Shape The Air Around Us

Department of Energy, Office of Science

Scientists supported by the Department of Energy are studying how biological emissions from trees interact with the atmosphere. These emissions, known as volatile organic compounds (VOCs), react with other gases to become particles. These particles, called secondary organic aerosols, influence cloud formation. The GoAmazon project studies this process in the Amazonian rainforest to provide data that can improve climate models.

Atomically thin nanowires convert heat to electricity more efficiently

University of Warwick

Waste heat can be converted to electricity more efficiently using one-dimensional nanoscale materials as thin as an atom – ushering a new way of generating sustainable energy – thanks to new research by the University of Warwick.Led by Drs Andrij Vasylenko, Samuel Marks, Jeremy Sloan and David Quigley from Warwick’s Department of Physics, in collaboration with the Universities of Cambridge and Birmingham, the researchers have found that the most effective thermoelectric materials can be realised by shaping them into the thinnest possible nanowires.

Fortune — and Nature — Favors the Bold

Washington University in St. Louis

Some people argue that animals have personalities: shy, bold, aggressive.It’s more than just cocktail party conversation for anole lizards, whose risk-taking behavior can mean the difference between life and death.For anoles in the Caribbean islands, natural selection predictably favors exploratory behavior in the absence of predators, and ground avoidance when predators are around, according to a new experimental field study in the June 1 issue of Science.
