10:20 PM | Environmental Chemist Invents Cement That Absorbs CO2 Like A Sponge
An Arizona inventor has created a innovative new type of cement that actually absorbs CO2, rather than emitting it. Portland cement (the generic name for common cement) is the “glue” that holds concrete together while it hardens. The production of this cement releases a significant amount of greenhouse gases. “This plant, if it’s making about a million tons a year of cement, will emit roughly 800,000 tons a year of CO2 carbon greenhouse gases,” says […]

7:26 PM | Controversial Italian scientist loses 11 papers from journal he used to edit
Alberto Carpinteri is something of a Renaissance man. Along with championing a highly controversial form of energy generation called “piezonuclear fission,” which involves crushing rocks, the engineer has argued that the Shroud of Turin really is as old as Jesus, but carbon dating was thrown off by an earthquake. Not everyone agrees with his ideas: In […]The post Controversial Italian scientist loses 11 papers from journal he used to edit appeared first on Retraction […]

6:00 PM | A Failed Lab Experiment Accidentally Invented a Replacement For Cement
As the world’s cities expand at faster and faster speeds, so does its use of cement. One oft-quoted statistic shows that China alone used as much cement in the last three years as the US used in the last 100. Just one problem: Cement is responsible for pushing a hell of a lot of carbon dioxide into the world. Read more...

3:30 PM | Retraction notice for steel manufacturing paper leaves much to the imagination
Reading is hard and takes a long time, so it’s nice that the Iron and Steel Institute of Japan didn’t give us too much work to do with this 12 word retraction. Journal ISIJ International minced no words about why the 2014 paper on steel manufacturing was withdrawn, because there were no words. Here’s the notice for […]The post Retraction notice for steel manufacturing paper leaves much to the imagination appeared first on Retraction Watch.

5:58 PM | A glass fiber that brings light to a standstill
Light is an extremely useful tool for quantum communication, but it has one major disadvantage: it usually travels at the speed of light and cannot be kept in place. A team of scientists at the Vienna University of Technology has now demonstrated that this problem can be solved – not only in strange, unusual quantum […]

12:06 AM | The universe is expanding, but how fast?
We are expanding, well more accurately the universe is expanding. However researchers have found certain types of supernovae, or exploding stars, are more diverse than previously thought. The results have implications for big cosmological questions, such as how fast the universe has been expanding since the Big Bang. Most importantly, the findings hint at the possibility that […]
