Scientists at University College London have created a new type of ice, called medium-density amorphous ice that matches the density and structure of water. This new discovery may lead to the ability to study water’s mysterious properties. The ice was created by shaking regular ice in a container with centimetre-wide stainless-steel balls at temperatures of –200 ˚C. The new form of ice could open up a new chapter in ice research and have implications for the potential habitability of liquid-water oceans on moons.
Modern technology, designed for convenience, paradoxically consumes our time, as revealed by a study across Europe. Despite the intent to simplify, individuals increasingly engage in tech-based tasks during supposed idle moments. Digital tools blur the lines between work and personal time, fostering a sense of constant connectivity. The perception of online activities as less authentic […]
New research led by the University of Bristol has highlighted regions across the world most at risk of devastating effects from unprecedented heat waves. The study identifies regions such as Afghanistan, Papua New Guinea, Central America, Beijing, and Central Europe as the most vulnerable due to socioeconomic vulnerability and limited adaptation measures. The researchers used […]
New research reveals that static exercises like planks and wall sits effectively lower blood pressure and provide a range of health benefits. These isometric exercises involve muscle contraction without changing muscle length. Conducting three weekly sessions of four two-minute bouts of isometric exercises reduces blood pressure akin to medication. These exercises also enhance heart health, […]
