Robotic arm probes chemistry of 3-D objects by mass spectrometry (Pure Research)
Posted by: Site Administration
When life on Earth was first getting started, simple molecules bonded together into the precursors of modern genetic material. A catalyst would have been needed, but enzymes had not yet evolved. One theory is that the catalytic minerals on a meteorite's surface could have jump-started life's first chemical reactions. But scientists need a way to directly analyze these rough, irregularly shaped surfaces. A new robotic system at Georgia Tech's Center for Chemical Evolution could soon let scientists better simulate and analyze the chemical reactions of early Earth on the surface of real rocks to further test this theory.

First step towards “programmable materials“ - Sheet metal that never rattles (Pure Research)
Posted by: Site Administration
Researchers from Empa and ETH Zurich have succeeded in producing a prototype of a vibration-damping material that could change the world of mechanics forever. The material of the future is not only able to damp vibrations completely; it can also specifically conduct certain frequencies further.

Team Develops Multi-scale Simulation Software for Chemistry Research (Pure Research)
Posted by: Site Administration
Researchers at the San Diego Supercomputer Center at the University of California, San Diego, have developed software that greatly expands the types of multi-scale QM/MM (mixed quantum and molecular mechanical) simulations of complex chemical systems that scientists can use to design new drugs, better chemicals, or improved enzymes for biofuels production.

Fat Black Holes Grown up in Cities: Observational result using Virtual Observatory (Pure Research)
Posted by: Site Administration
A research team, led by reseacher at the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan (NAOJ), discovered that the more massive black holes tend to be located in galactic environments with higher density . This finding indicates that galaxies in a dense area often merge together, causing the growth of massive black holes.
