One of the inventors of the modern lithium-ion battery, John Goodenough, and a team of researchers claim to have invented a new solid state battery. But is it too good to be true?

They're non-toxic, non-corrosive and could significantly reduce the cost of production." Lithium-Ion Battery Inventor Introduces Fast-Charging, Noncombustible Batteries http://engr.utexas.edu/news/8203-goodenough-batteries "A team of engineers led by 94-year-old John Goodenough, professor in the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin and co-inventor of the lithium-ion battery, has developed the first all-solid-state battery cells that could lead to safer, faster-charging, longer-lasting rechargeable batteries for handheld mobile devices, electric cars and stationary energy storage." BU-204: How do Lithium Batteries Work? http://batteryuniversity.com/learn/article/lithium_based_batteries "Lithium is the lightest of all metals, has the greatest electrochemical potential and provides the largest specific energy per weight. Rechargeable batteries with lithium metal on the anode could provide extraordinarily high energy densities; however, it was discovered in the mid-1980s that cycling produced unwanted dendrites on the anode. These growth particles penetrate the separator and cause an electrical short. The cell temperature would rise quickly and approach the melting point of lithium, causing thermal runaway, also known as 'venting with flame.'" Has lithium-battery genius John Goodenough done it again? Colleagues are skeptical https://qz.com/929794/has-lithium-battery-genius-john-goodenough-done-it-again-colleagues-are-skeptical/ "Researchers have struggled for decades to safely use powerful-but flammable-lithium metal in a battery. Now John Goodenough, the 94-year-old father of the lithium-ion battery, is claiming a novel solution as a blockbuster advance. If it proves out, the invention could allow electric cars to compete with conventional vehicles on sticker price. The improbable solution, described in a new paper from Goodenough and three co-authors, has drawn intense interest from leading science and technology publications." ____________________ Seeker inspires us to see the world through the lens of science and evokes a sense of curiosity, optimism and adventure.

(Not Much, But One Might Kill You) http://www.medicaldaily.com/whats-difference-between-sociopath-and-psychopath-not-much-one-might-kill-you-270694 “Today, the terms “sociopath” and “psychopath” are used interchangeably — often as a nice way of avoiding “crazy” — yet in recent years the difference between “psychopath” and “sociopath” has become as widely pronounced as the scientific difference between shell shock and post-traumatic stress disorder, which is to say it’s massive.” Psychopaths Might Have an Impaired Empathy Circuit http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/psychopaths-might-have-an-impaired-empathy-circuit/ “When most of us imagine someone in pain, we feel uncomfortable and want to help.” Neurological basis for lack of empathy in psychopaths http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/09/130924174331.htm “When individuals with psychopathy imagine others in pain, brain areas necessary for feeling empathy and concern for others fail to become active and be connected to other important regions involved in affective processing and decision-making, reports a new study.” Psychopaths' brains wired to seek rewards, no matter the consequences http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2010/03/100314150924.htm “The brains of psychopaths appear to be wired to keep seeking a reward at any cost, new research finds. The research uncovers the role of the brain's reward system in psychopathy and opens a new area of study for understanding what drives these individuals.” ____________________ DNews is dedicated to satisfying your curiosity and to bringing you mind-bending stories & perspectives you won't find anywhere else!

The source of their fascination, and no little excitement, was light. Not the sunlight that made the snow glint on the mountains in the Aosta valley, but light inside the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) across the border near Geneva. The machine had detected more photons than expected as it smashed particles beneath the quiet Swiss countryside.

How Supercapacitors Could Make Batteries a Thing of the Past

But when they tested the new polymer – a thin, light blue square the size of a postage stamp – something strange happened.” Next Stop: Ultracapacitor Buses https://www.technologyreview.com/s/415773/next-stop-ultracapacitor-buses/ “Unlike a conventional trolley bus that has to continually touch an overhead power line, Sinautec’s ultracapacitor buses take big sips of electricity every two or three miles at designated charging stations, which double as bus stops. When at these stations, a collector on the top of the bus rises a few feet and touches an overhead charging line. Within a couple of minutes, the ultracapacitor banks stored under the bus seats are fully charged.” ____________________ Elements is more than just a science show.

Physicists Create World's First Time Crystal https://www.technologyreview.com/s/602541/physicists-create-worlds-first-time-crystal/ "Today, we get an answer thanks to the work of Chris Monroe at the University of Maryland in College Park and a few pals, who have created a time crystal in their laboratory for the first time. The basic process for making time crystals is straightforward. The idea is to create a quantum system, such as a group of ions arranged in a ring, and cool them until they are in their lowest energy state. In these circumstances, the laws of physics would suggest that the ring should be perfectly stationary." Viewpoint: How to Create a Time Crystal http://physics.aps.org/articles/v10/5 "The story of time crystals-whose lowest-energy configurations are periodic in time rather than space-epitomizes the creative ideas, controversy, and vigorous discussion that lie at the core of the scientific process. Originally theorized by Frank Wilczek in 2012, time crystals were met with widespread attention, but also a healthy dose of skepticism. This ignited a debate in the literature, culminating in a proof that time crystals cannot exist in thermal equilibrium, as originally imagined by Wilczek.

Since Mass Exists, Can There Be Negative Mass?
 
04:21
Media outlets claim researchers have created negative mass, but what they really created is negative 'effective' mass, which is a little different. Black Holes And Gravitational Waves Might Help Us Find Dark Matter - https://youtu.be/C68b9EGksuI Sign Up For The Seeker Newsletter Here - http://bit.ly/1UO1PxI Read More: Cosmologists Prove Negative Mass Can Exist In Our Universe https://medium.com/the-physics-arxiv-blog/cosmologists-prove-negative-mass-can-exist-in-our-universe-250a980320a7 "Today, Saoussen Mbarek and Manu Paranjape at the Université de Montréal in Canada say they've found a solution to Einstein's theory of general relativity that allows negative mass without breaking any essential assumptions. Their approach means that negative mass can exist in our universe provided there is a reasonable mechanism for producing it, perhaps in pairs of positive and negative mass particles in the early universe." 'Negative mass' created at Washington State University https://news.wsu.edu/2017/04/10/negative-mass-created-at-wsu/ "A negative effective mass can be realized in quantum systems by engineering the dispersion relation. A powerful method is provided by spin-orbit coupling, which is currently at the center of intense research efforts. Here we measure an expanding spin-orbit coupled Bose-Einstein condensate whose dispersion features a region of negative effective mass. We observe a range of dynamical phenomena, including the breaking of parity and of Galilean covariance, dynamical instabilities, and self-trapping." Anti-Gravity and Anti-Mass https://www.npl.washington.edu/av/altvw14.html "But perhaps there is a loophole in the equations of Newton and Einstein. This AV column concerns the idea of negative mass, one such potential loophole. This idea too has been anticipated in science fiction. In Gene Wolfe's The Citadel of the Autarch, the fourth volume of the "Book of the New Sun" trilogy, the Autarch transports the wounded Severian in a "flier". He explains that it obtains its lift from a boulder-size chunk of antimatter iron which is repelled by gravity rather than attracted. The question which we will consider here is whether antimatter, or more generally negative mass, could provide negative gravity and gravitational repulsion in this way." ____________________ Seeker inspires us to see the world through the lens of science and evokes a sense of curiosity, optimism and adventure.

How Scientists Can Slow Down Time

This is in fact far from the truth.” How Special Relativity Works http://science.howstuffworks.com/science-vs-myth/everyday-myths/relativity10.htm “In order to attempt to prove this theory of time dilation, two very accurate atomic clocks were synchronized and one was taken on a high-speed trip on an airplane.” Hafele and Keating Experiment http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/relativ/airtim.html “During October, 1971, four cesium atomic beam clocks were flown on regularly scheduled commercial jet flights around the world twice, once eastward and once westward, to test Einstein's theory of relativity with macroscopic clocks.” Time Dilation Calculator http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=time+dilation+calculator ____________________ DNews is dedicated to satisfying your curiosity and to bringing you mind-bending stories & perspectives you won't find anywhere else!

In fact, until very recently there were no convincing findings that linked birth order to personality or behavior." Birth Order Affects Child's Intelligence and Personality http://www.livescience.com/6852-birth-order-affects-childs-intelligence-personality.html "Birth order within families has long sparked sibling rivalry, but it might also impact the child's personality and intelligence, a new study suggests. First-borns are typically smarter, while younger siblings get better grades and are more outgoing, the researchers say." How Your Birth Order Can Influence Who You Are http://io9.com/how-your-birth-order-can-influence-who-you-are-1136567036 "As many parents can attest, siblings tend to be more different than alike. Some of this may be the result of our birth order, and how we're subsequently raised. What's more, birth order may influence our health and sexuality too. Here's what you need to know about how your birth rank affects your life." That Elusive Birth Order Effect and What it Means for You http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/fulfillment-any-age/201305/elusive-birth-order-effect-and-what-it-means-you "Only child, first-born, last-born, or somewhere in between. Where do you fit into the birth order of your family? Perhaps you've come to believe the myths both in your family and in psychology as a whole that your character, values, achievement strivings, and life success are determined by the family position that fate, and your parents, awarded to you." THE BIRTH ORDER EFFECT http://www.psychologies.co.uk/family/the-birth-order-effect.html "The order we're born in -- first, middle or youngest child -- is outside our control. So it can make us uncomfortable to think that our birth order can play a significant part in our success, our personality -- the direction of our life. Surely, these things are not set before we even get started?" Birth Order: Fun to Debate, but How Important? http://www.nytimes.com/2009/09/08/health/08klas.html?_r=0 "The older girl was smart, neat and perfectly behaved in school; in her spare time, she won dance trophies.

Why Most Students Ditch Math & Science Majors

Math and Science majors are pretty popular choices for incoming college students, but that popularity fades pretty quick. New research shows students quickly change majors when they realize they're gonna have to work really hard. And as Trace tells us, this attitude has serious consequences.

Because all cells in the body contain exactly the same DNA, samples can be taken from almost anywhere in the body, including skin, hair follicles, blood and other bodily fluids." How is genetic testing done? https://ghr.nlm.nih.gov/primer/testing/procedure Once a person decides to proceed with genetic testing, a medical geneticist, primary care doctor, specialist, or nurse practitioner can order the test. Genetic testing is often done as part of a genetic consultation. Genetic tests are performed on a sample of blood, hair, skin, amniotic fluid (the fluid that surrounds a fetus during pregnancy), or other tissue. The family history: the first genetic test, and still useful after all those years? http://www.nature.com/gim/journal/v14/n1/full/gim0b013e3182310bcfa.html#ref-link-16 "The family history has its origins in genealogy and over the past century has become embedded in clinical practice. Its importance in specialized circumstances is unquestioned but largely untested. Moreover, the relevance of the family history to common diseases, especially in an era of genomic markers that convey risk and the emphasis on 'personalized medicine,' must be given careful scrutiny." ____________________ DNews is dedicated to satisfying your curiosity and to bringing you mind-bending stories & perspectives you won't find anywhere else!

It's the thinnest electronic material ever invented, consisting of a layer of carbon atoms just a single atom thick -- the atoms are arranged in a hexagonal pattern. It weighs almost nothing, coming in at only 0.77 grams for a square meter. But it's no lightweight. Graphene is 100 times stronger than steel of the same thickness. It conducts both heat and electricity better than copper, and has outstanding optical and mechanical properties. If it could be produced on an industrial scale, graphene might revolutionize fields such as electronics and even body armor." A Lucky Lab Accident Results in Bucketloads of Graphene https://www.seeker.com/a-lucky-lab-accident-results-in-bucketloads-of-graphene-2230364207.html Apparently, when it comes to making graphene, the 21st-century 'miracle material' taking manufacturing by storm, you can do things the hard way or the fun way. The hard ways - and there are dozens - all have their own complications. Some require high temperatures and long 'cooking' times, others require the use of hazardous chemicals like sulfuric acid or hydrazine. The easy way comes from physicists at Kansas State University, and the process is admirably straightforward: Fill a steel containment unit with oxygen and hydrocarbon gas, detonate it with the spark and, voila, a bucketload of soot-like graphene. Scrape it out and repeat. Graphene sieve turns seawater into drinking water http://www.manchester.ac.uk/discover/news/graphene-sieve-turns-seawater-into-drinking-water/ "Graphene-oxide membranes have attracted considerable attention as promising candidates for new filtration technologies. Now the much sought-after development of making membranes capable of sieving common salts has been achieved. New research demonstrates the real-world potential of providing clean drinking water for millions of people who struggle to access adequate clean water sources. The new findings from a group of scientists at The University of Manchester were published today in the journal Nature Nanotechnology. Previously graphene-oxide membranes have shown exciting potential for gas separation and water filtration." ____________________ Seeker inspires us to see the world through the lens of science and evokes a sense of curiosity, optimism and adventure.
