It's a shape called an "einstein" that researchers have been seeking for decades
A drop the size of a raisin could paint both sides of the door to your house
Yeah! Science! Traditional paint is made from a bonding agent, such as oil, and pigments from heavy metals like cobalt, ochre, and cadmium, which make blue, red, and yellow, respectively. We use paint to color the artificial world, but in nature, creatures such as butterflies and beetles display vibrant palettes without pigment - they use topography.
This type of ice might occur naturally on moons orbiting Neptune and Jupiter due to intense gravitational tides
#TBT "Playing video games can make you a better driver," it's not exactly what you imagine. Ironically, studies show that first-person shooters like Call of Duty provide more benefits for drivers than driving games do.
Citation data shows a steep decline in revolutionary discoveries

Ideal for eyeglasses and windshields
In a nutshell: Researchers at ETH Zurich have spent the last few years perfecting a coating capable of passively preventing fogging on glass surfaces. Their latest iteration consists of extremely thin clusters of gold situated between ultrathin layers of titanium oxide on the top and bottom. The resulting coating is able to absorb a portion of infrared radiation from the Sun, which heats up the surface by as much as eight degrees Celsius and prevents condensation from forming.
Device disrupts real network switches long enough for fake ones to send in signals
Why it matters: Hospitals have a constant need for donated blood. Approximately 30,000 units per day are used to treat accident victims and people with blood ailments like sickle cell anemia. Hospitals often suffer shortages when they receive a high number of trauma patients. But what if we could duplicate a typical donation in a lab and give it a longer shelf life?
