Qesst For Solar Power To Feed An Energy Hungry World - Science Nation

Modern society is very much defined by its access to electricity. What if researchers could advance sustainable energy technologies to the point where everyone around the world had access to clean, cheap energy sources? Richard Smalley, 1996 Nobel Prize winning chemist, called it the greatest challenge facing the world in the 21st century and coined the phrase ‘terawatt challenge.’ Researchers at the Quantum Energy and Sustainable Solar Technologies (QESST) Center are hoping to meet much of the terawatt challenge with solar ...

Understanding The Ecological Role Of Wolves In Yellowstone National Park - Science Nation

Loathed as a threat and nuisance, the wolf population in Yellowstone National Park was essentially wiped out by the mid 1920's. That changed in 1995, when the National Park Service reintroduced them there, with the goal of restoring a natural predator/prey dynamic to the landscape. So, 20 years later, how has the park's ecosystem responded to the return of the wolves? That's just what Utah State University wildlife ecologist Dan MacNulty and his team want to find out. With support from ...

‘yellow Chemistry’ Turns Sulfur Waste Into Plastics - Science Nation

While many scientists are hard at work on green chemistry projects that will benefit the environment, there are a handful of researchers at the University of Arizona who are starting a trend of their own-- yellow chemistry. That's because their main ingredient is sulfur, a yellow waste product from petroleum refining and natural gas production. With support from the National Science Foundation (NSF), chemists Jeff Pyun and Richard Glass and a team of collaborators have mixed up a chemical recipe ...

Xromm Puts Biomechanics On The Fast Track - Science Nation

The protective shells that have helped keep turtles around for millions of years have also kept scientists guessing about just what’s going on inside. With support from the National Science Foundation (NSF), biologist Elizabeth Brainerd and her team at Brown University have developed X-ray Reconstruction of Moving Morphology, or XROMM, a new technology that combines CAT scan and X-ray technology for visualizing bones and joints in motion, in both animals and humans. Brainerd incorporates Maya, the same animation software ...

Surfactants: Building Greener Chemicals - Science Nation

From cleaning supplies to pharmaceuticals, surfactants are the compounds that make your soap bubbly, your paint spread smoothly and your medication dissolve more easily. Surfactants can be found everywhere because of their unique dispersion ability that helps lower the repulsive forces between liquids and solids or two non-mixing liquids (think oil and water). Most surfactants are currently made from non-renewable petroleum sources and many of these surfactants don't breakdown easily after they are discarded. Some can persist in the environment ...

Additive Manufacturing: 3-d Printing Beyond Plastic - Science Nation

At Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (VT), Christopher Williams heads the effort to further advance 3-D printing--known among engineers as additive manufacturing--with copper, a widely used conductor in electronics. Williams is using a process called binder jetting in which an inkjet printer selectively jets glue into a bed of copper powder, layer-by-layer. The printed copper product is then taken to a furnace to fuse the particles together With support from the National Science Foundation (NSF), Williams is addressing a ...

Do Smart Electricity Meters 'turn On' Conservation? - Science Nation

With smart electricity meters, consumers can measure electricity usage in real time, even find out how they stack up against their neighbors. But, does having that information impact consumers' electricity usage? With support from the National Science Foundation (NSF), environmental economist Magali Delmas and colleagues at the University of California, Los Angeles, decided to find out with a unique behavioral science experiment called ENGAGE. They want to better understand both how people respond to information about the environment and change ...
