Photosynthesis starts with sunlight absorption, but how does a leaf know when to stop? To find out, scientists modeled light diffusion at the nanometer scale, and the results point a way to artificial light harvesting materials.
Astrophysicists at the California Institute of Technology were reluctant to predict the existence of a new planet in our solar system, but NSF-powered supercomputer simulations left no other possibility. Planet 9: The latest example of science as a team sport.
An Australian big data collation of decades of genetic studies confirms adaptation to climate change is underway in the animal kingdom. For the first time, researchers have the proof of climate adaptation through genetics at their fingertips, and can see hints of the qualities that lead to survival.
