Jeans That Won't Let You (Or The Planet) Get Dirty

The safest durable water repellent<p>Any time a drop of water rolls off a raincoat, a durable water repellent (DWR) treatment is doing its job. But with washing and wear, the treatments tend to rub off, bleeding into the ground, water, and even our bodies. (The EPA has classified common DWR chemicals, …

New crystal material could lead to shape-shifting displays

Scientists at the University of Michigan have developed a type of material that can change its appearance when subjected to light. The material is host to crystals that react to different wavelengths of light, moving into new shapes and patterns on the fly, without the need for an underlying …

This is a Hubble image of the most massive cluster of galaxies ever seen to exist when the universe was just half its current age of 13.8 billion years. The cluster contains several hundred galaxies. NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has weighed the largest known galaxy cluster in the distant universe, catalogued as ACT-CL J0102-4915, and found it definitely lives up to its nickname -- El Gordo (Spanish for "the fat one"). By measuring how much the cluster's gravity warps images of galaxies in the distant background, a team of astronomers has calculated the cluster's mass to be as much as 3 million billion times the mass of our sun. Hubble data show the galaxy cluster, which is 9.7 billion light-years away from Earth, is roughly 43 percent more massive than earlier estimates. The team used Hubble to measure how strongly the mass of the cluster warped space. Hubble's high resolution allowed measurements of so-called "weak lensing," where the cluster's immense gravity subtly distorts space like a funhouse mirror and warps images of background galaxies. The greater the warping, the more mass is locked up in the cluster. Credit: NASA, ESA, and J. Jee (University of California, Davis)#Hubble #hst #galaxy

A miniature space robot might one day perform surgery on astronauts
