Could the air around us soon power our planes, trains, and automobiles? Several companies are now manufacturing diesel fuel from ambient carbon dioxide, and may soon be able to do so on a commercial scale.
March marked the 10th anniversary of a Yale program that exposes young students to science. For the past decade, Science on Saturdays has featured exciting demos and renowned science experts as guest speakers.
Evolution as we know it is driven by mutations in genes. But researchers at Yale were curious about what surrounds a gene. That is, how does a whole gene network evolve?
A team of Yale researchers has recently demonstrated that a new technique allows for the manipulation of electron orbitals, and consequently paves the way for the fine-tuning of atomic properties.
A simple code dictates how DNA is translated into proteins in all living things. Scientists have long thought of these translations as universal, but lately, a few exceptions have come to light. Now, researchers at Yale are probing how and why the genetic code might change.
A team led by Yale postdoctoral student Dr. Won-Hee Ryu has engineered an ingenious catalytic membrane design that increases cyclability for lithium-air batteries.
Hormones — powerful yet puzzling signaling molecules — are as historical as they are chemical. In a thought-provoking documentary by BBC, renowned endocrinologist John Wass traces the 300-year history behind hormones.
Dr. Corey O’Hern, an expert in the field of jamming, has recently received funding from the National Science Foundation to host a symposium on jamming in Madrid this summer.
A team of Yale scientists has developed a new method to improve the efficiency of carbon nanotube-based solar cells. The technique, which is highly efficient at removing oxygen and residual molecules of the nanotubes’ surfaces, could lead to major advances in solar power and electronics.
A look at the past and future of Science on Saturdays, one of Yale Scientific Magazine’s most popular outreach events.
