The chemical properties of acids and bases
By: Lavinia T
Substances are generally classified as acids, bases and neutral. To determine whether a substance is acidic, basic, or neutral, we can generally make use of indicators. If a substance is acidic, then it would turn blue litmus red. On the other hand, if a substance...

How micro black holes could exist
By: Rex Trulove
In the world of theoretical physics, black holes hold a special position. A growing amount of evidence exists that all but proves that there are black holes out there. This isn't easy for an object that can't be seen, because the gravitation is so great...
Metamaterials: The invention of the invisibility cloak
By: Lesley Hebert
A practical invisibility cloak, the imaginative stuff of science fiction, fantasy and comic books, has not been invented quite yet. However, it is becoming a realistic possibility thanks to research with electromagnetic meta-materials, which are materials especially designed to bend electromagnetic waves, including light.The...
Study: Channels on Mars created by lava not water
By: Leigh Goessl
In 2011, in what was deemed an astonishing discovery, scientists found evidence that running water may potentially exist on neighboring planet Mars. The detection of possible water came from Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) which found slopes carved into the surface of Mars. The lines were...
How scientists detect black holes
By: Ken Grant
Science and science fiction have many areas that overlap. One of these areas is the significance of black holes. These unique areas of space have fascinated astronomers, science fiction writers and general individuals ever since their existence was first detected. Black holes are evidence of...
