Planet Neptune not guilty of harassment
New research by a University of Victoria PhD student is challenging popular theory about how part of our solar system formed. At today's meeting of the prestigious Division of Planetary Sciences in Pasadena, California, Alex Parker is presenting evidence that, contrary to popular belief, the planet Neptune can't have knocked a collection of planetoids known as the Cold Classical Kuiper Belt to...

Solar cells get a boost from bouncing light
A new twist on an old solar cell design sends light ricocheting through layers of microscopic spheres, increasing its electricity-generating potential by 26 percent.  View News Article (2011-08-01)

New type of solar cell retains high efficiency for long periods: ACS podcast
The latest episode in the American Chemical Society's (ACS) award-winning "Global Challenges/Chemistry Solutions" podcast series features a new solar cell with high efficiency in converting sunlight into electricity and the durability to last and last.  View News Article (2011-12-01)

Study shows the HPV vaccine Gardasil doesn't increase disease activity in SLE patients
Results of a Chinese study showed that the HPV vaccine did not have significant effects on the number of disease flares or antibody measures in patients with inactive SLE receiving stable doses of medications after administration, and therefore was determined safe to use to prevent HPV in this group of patients. View News Article (2011-05-26)

Star on a Hubble diet
How heavy can a star be? This conundrum has haunted astronomers for decades. Theory indicates that there should be an upper stellar mass limit somewhere between 120 and 300 solar masses. Even though heavy stars are very bright, measurements of their masses can be complicated. View News Article (2006-12-12)

Sophisticated ESA space weather tool under development
If a satellite encounters high-energy particles or other 'space weather' phenomena before ground controllers can take action, on-board electronics could be disrupted, scientific instruments damaged and, in very rare and extreme cases, spacecraft may even be lost. View News Article (2007-02-05)

Bowel disease link to blood clots
People living with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) are known to be at high risk of blood clots when admitted to hospital during a flare-up of their disease but now new research by scientists at The University of Nottingham has shown that those who are not admitted to hospital during flare-ups are also at risk. View News Article (2010-02-11)

'Nanocoax' solves solar cell 'thick and thin' dilemma
A nano-scale solar cell inspired by the coaxial cable offers greater efficiency than any previously designed nanotech thin film solar cell by resolving the "thick & thin" challenge inherent to capturing light and extracting current for solar power, Boston College researchers report in the current online edition of the journal Physica Status Solidi. View News Article (2010-06-08)

Nanoparticles improve solar collection efficiency
Using minute graphite particles 1000 times smaller than the width of a human hair, mechanical engineers at Arizona State University hope to boost the efficiency-and profitability-of solar power plants. View News Article (2011-04-05)

New Satellite To Study Explosive Solar Flares
A small NASA spacecraft, dedicated solely to the study of high energy processes in gigantic explosions in the atmosphere of the Sun, is scheduled to be launched early next week. Although the 293 kg (645 lb) satellite, known as the High Energy Solar Spectroscopic Imager (HESSI), carries only one scientific instrument, it will make a major contribution to studies of our nearest star. HESSI will... View News Article (2002-01-31)
