Researchers are asking for help retrieving a lost bird tracker. A tourist likely picked up the GPS device on the beach and brought it home with them from Orkney, Scotland, to London, England. The hunt is on for a bird tracking device that, instead of logging the bird’s movements, is likely tracking the travels of an unwitting tourist. Researchers are asking for the public’s help to retrieve the tracker so that it can be used to study

Scientists grow cells on a robot skeleton (but don’t know what to do with them yet)

Scientist have grown human cells on a robot skeleton, hoping that by moving the skeleton they can better approximate the cells’ natural growing environment. The cells certainly grew, but it’s not clear yet if they would be any better for medical treatments. The science of tissue engineering — or growing human cells for use in medicine — is very much in its infancy, with only the simplest lab-grown cells able to be used in experimental treatments today. But researchers say a new method of tissue

Scientists create algae computer powered by photosynthesis

Scientists from the University of Cambridge have used algae to power a low-energy ARM computer chip for six months continuously. They hope that in the future, such natural power systems could be used to power Internet of Things devices. Scientists have used algae to power a low-energy computer chip for six months. Researchers from the University of Cambridge sealed a colony of cyanobacteria, commonly known as blue-green algae, inside a metal enclosure the size of an AA battery.

Scientists capture first image of supermassive black hole in heart of Milky Way

On May 12th, astronomers with the Event Horizon Telescope collaboration unveiled an image of Sagittarius A*, the black hole at the center of the Milky Way galaxy. The world has been gifted the second photograph ever taken of a supermassive black hole — and this time, it’s a black hole that’s relatively close to home. Today, scientists collaborating on the massive Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) project

Russian government bars its scientists from international conferences

Russian scientists will not participate in international conferences this year, and institutions will not emphasize publication in international journals that are indexed in databases that generate scientific metrics. Russian scientists will not participate in international conferences this year, the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation said via its Telegram channel. The decision comes as Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has strained

“We don’t live in a research bubble”

A wave of individuals and volunteer groups are using the internet to offer jobs, free housing, research space, and funding to scientists in Ukraine. But many researchers aren’t in a position to accept those offers. Explosions rock Dnipro, a city in central Ukraine where Vitalii Palchykov, a synthetic organic chemist, lives with his wife and 7-year-old son. He and his family get very nervous every time they hear bomb warning sirens go off. Living in the middle

Solar recycling is broken, but there’s a plan to fix it

Millions of tons of solar panels are expected to be decommissioned this decade. A team of Arizona State University researchers is proposing a new recycling method to ensure they don’t wind up in landfills. A new Department of Energy-funded research project seeks to solve one of the biggest challenges with solar power — what to do with solar panels after they die. Solar energy is key to solving climate change, but for the technology itself to be

Scientists find unexpected trove of life forms beneath Antarctic ice shelf

According to research published this month, scientists discovered an "abundance of life" underneath an ice shelf in Antarctica, more than was previously thought to exist there. The findings open a new window of possibility to what exactly exists beneath the ice shelf, but there isn’t a lot of time due to climate change and ice shelves collapsing. A team of researchers from the Alfred Wegener Institute in Germany has discovered a whopping 77 seafloor-dwelling species beneath an Antarctica ice shelf — a hint that this mysterious realm may be far more biologically rich than scientists
