Ants Nest Nests Species Colony Researchers
- In the harsh saltpans of North Africa, a unique breed of ants displays remarkable navigational prowess. These desert ants, known as Cataglyphis fortis, traverse vast expanses of desert to gather food for their colonies, journeying far from their nests into this barren and hostile terrain.  The real challenge, however, begins once the ants find food – typically a deceased insect – and must promptly navigate back to their nest through the extremely hot and desolate environment. Marilia Freire, the lead author of a recent study published in Current Biology , spoke about the ... [Read More]

Atom Argonne National Laboratory Electron Ohio University Model Electrons
- SX-STM enables detection of atom type, simultaneous measurement of its chemical state. Atomic-scale imaging emerged in the mid-1950s and has been advancing rapidly ever since—so much so, that back  in 2008 , physicists successfully used an electron microscope to image a single hydrogen atom. Five years later , scientists were able to peer inside a hydrogen atom using a " quantum microscope ," resulting in the first direct observation of electron orbitals. And now we have the first X-ray taken of a single atom, courtesy of scientists from Ohio University, Argonne National ... [Read More]

Water Plume System Webb Saturn's Moon Enceladus Moon
- TOPICS: Interaction between moon's plumes and Saturn's ring system explored with Webb Enceladus—a tiny, icy moon of Saturn —is one of the most intriguing objects in the search for signs of life beyond our own planet. Under a crust of ice lies a global ocean of salty water. Jets, supplied by that ocean, gush from the surface of the moon and feed into the entire system of Saturn. NASA 's James Webb Space Telescope 's long-awaited first look at this ocean world is already revealing staggering new details about the moon — including a plume of water vapor that spouts out more ...
