Scientists at Japan's Nagoya University have come up with a new technology to treat contaminated water, using electrically charged nanocarbons to more effectively filter heavy metal ions from the mix.
Some theories suggest there could be many more dimensions that we’re unaware of, mostly because they’re imperceptibly tiny. Now researchers have taken the search for extra dimensions down to the nanoscale, using a neutron beam to study gravitational forces more precisely than ever before.
People rate food as tasting better, and they eat more of it, when eating with other people. The effect is known as the "social facilitation of eating," and scientists don't fully understand it. In a new study, however, it was found that it also occurs when solo diners eat in front of a mirror.
