Survey of the sky pushes the boundaries of what we know about the structure of our galaxy — ScienceDaily

Scientists from Cardiff University have helped produce a brand-new, three-dimensional survey of our galaxy, allowing them to peer into the inner structure and observe its star-forming processes in unprecedented detail.

The large-scale survey, called SEDIGISM (Structure, Excitation and Dynamics of the Inner Galactic Interstellar Medium), has revealed a wide range of structures within the Milky Way, from individual star-forming clumps to giant molecular clouds and complexes, that will allow astronomers to start pushing the boundaries of what we know about the structure of our galaxy.

SEDIGISM has been unveiled today through the publication of three separate papers in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, authored by an international team of over 50 astronomers.

“With the publication of this unprecedentedly detailed map of cold clouds in our Milky Way, a huge observational effort comes to fruition,” says Frederic Schuller from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy (MPIfR),

South Korean researchers have developed a new type of electrode structure for all-solid-state secondary batteries. If this technology is adopted, the energy density of the batteries could increase significantly when compared to existing technologies, contributing tremendously to the development of high-performance secondary batteries.

A joint research team from Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI) and Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology (DGIST) announced that it had designed a new electrode structure for all-solid-state secondary batteries after identifying the mechanism of facile lithium-ion diffusion between active materials. The achievement received international recognition when the results were published by the ACS Energy Letters, an international online academic journal specializing in the energy sector which is run by the American Chemical Society (ACS)*.

MIT researchers uncover molecular structure of a protein found in COVID-19

“Our findings could be useful for medicinal chemists to design alternative small molecules that target this channel with high affinity,” said Mei Hong, an MIT chemistry professor and senior author of the research team’s new study, in the statement.

The paper from Hong’s team was published Nov. 11 in the journal Nature Structural and Molecular Biology. Its lead author was MIT graduate student Venkata Mandala, the statement said, and additional authors were MIT postdoc Matthew McKay, along with graduate students Alexander Shcherbakov and Aurelio Dregni, as well as Antonios Kolocouris, a pharmaceutical chemistry professor at the University of Athens.

At the outset of the pandemic, the statement said, Hong and her students decided to focus their efforts on one of the COVID-19 proteins. They settled on protein E, the statement said, partly because it’s similar to an influenza protein called the M2 proton channel, which Hong’s studied previously.

“We determined

Utah monolith: Metal structure found in red-rock desert compared to ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’

“He’s like: ‘There’s this thing! There’s this thing back there! We got to go look at it!’” Hutchings said.

Joking that they were intrepid explorers investigating an alien life form, the crew members determined that the monolith was 10 to 12 feet tall and planted firmly in the ground. It seemed to them like more of an artistic expression than part of a scientific experiment.

But mostly, it looked like something out of a science-fiction novel.

“We were kind of joking around that if one of us just suddenly disappears, I guess the rest of us make a run for it,” Hutchings told KSL, chuckling.

It was not clear who installed the monolith, which Hutchings designated the strangest discovery he’s made in years of flying over the Utah desert. The state Department of Public Safety will not disclose its exact location, warning that people who try to visit it might

New Technology Images 3D Structure Of Chromosomes In High-Res

If you think of a chromosome, what comes to mind? Most people imagine the twisted ‘X’ shape seen in the media and textbooks. Chromosomes do in fact look like this for a brief period in their life cycle, but most of the time these images are inaccurate.

However, researchers from Harvard University Graduate School of Arts and Sciences are hoping to change that. In a study published in Cell, Jun-Han Su and colleagues have reported a method of creating stunning 3D images of human chromosomes that they hope will be used to educate the next generation of scientists. Capable of more than just impressive imagery, the technology could be used to understand the inner workings of our chromosomes in finer detail than ever before.

“It’s quite important to determine the 3D organization,” said Xiaowei Zhuang, a David B. Arnold, Jr. professor of Science, in a statement, “to understand the molecular

Ancient zircon minerals from Mars reveal the elusive internal structure of the red planet — ScienceDaily

The uranium-bearing mineral zircon is an abundant constituent of Earth’s continental crust, providing information about the age and origin of the continents and large geological features such as mountain chains and giant volcanoes. But unlike Earth, Mars’s crust is not evolved and is compositionally similar to the crust found under the Earth’s oceans, where zircon is rare. Therefore, zircon is not expected to be a common mineral on Mars.

“We were quite surprised and excited when we found so many zircons in this martian meteorite. Zircon are incredible durable crystals that can be dated and preserve information that tell us about their origins. Having access to so many zircons is like opening a time window into the geologic history of planet,” describes Professor Martin Bizzarro from the GLOBE Institute, who led the study.

The team investigated the ancient Martian meteorite NWA 7533, dubbed “Black Beauty,” which was discovered in the
