Overloaded Carbon Capture – Advanced Science News

A new carbon capture technique called supercapacitive swing adsorption separates carbon dioxide from gas mixtures in air and industrial flue gases. Irving Langmuir conducted his 1932 Nobel Prize-winning work on surface chemistry at General Electric’s research laboratories in Schenectady, New York. In his 1917 adsorption theory, he postulated that “surfaces resemble a chessboard, on which …

Science News | Brain scans reveal hidden ways of thinking and better predict student learning

Washington [US]Aug 12 (ANI): Neuroscientists have documented a connection between spatial and verbal reasoning by scanning the brains of students while taking a class that emphasized spatial learning. “Psychologists and philosophers have long debated whether spatial reasoning, like mental images of objects, actually lurks beneath verbal reasoning,” explains Adam Green, the study’s senior author and …

Analyzing data from NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope and several other observatories, astronomers have concluded that the bright red supergiant Betelgeuse literally blew its summit in 2019 – ScienceDaily

The star Betelgeuse appears as a brilliant ruby ​​red sparkling patch of light in the upper right shoulder of the winter constellation Orion the Hunter. But seen up close, astronomers recognize it as a seething monster with a 400-day heartbeat of regular pulsations. This aging star is classified as a supergiant because it has swollen …

Supercomputer simulates star seeding, heating effects of primordial black holes – ScienceDaily

Only milliseconds after the Big Bang of the universe, chaos reigned. Atomic nuclei fused and broke apart in hot, frenzied motion. Incredibly strong pressure waves built up, squeezing matter so tightly that black holes formed, which astrophysicists call primordial black holes. Did primordial black holes aid or hinder the formation of the Universe’s first stars, …
