Pillared graphene would transfer heat better if the theoretical material had a few asymmetric junctions that caused wrinkles, report engineers.
On Labor Day 1956, a caravan of moving trucks wound their way into Santa Clara County, just south of San Francisco, carrying the possessions of 600 families and equipment for the missile and space labs of the Lockheed Corporation. One month later, Lockheed’s Sunnyvale campus opened for business. Many of the arriving families were relocating to Sunnyvale from the company’s facility in Burbank, in Southern California.
With a magnitude of 7.3, the Nov. 12, 2017 earthquake that shook the border region between Iran and Iraq is among the largest ever recorded in this area. Seismologists know it resulted from the pressure built up between the colliding Arabian and Eurasian plates of the Earth’s crust. But there’s still a lot for researchers to uncover about seismic activity in the region.
New research is building a bridge from nature’s chemistry to greener, more efficient synthetic chemistry.
Researchers have found definitive proof that a protein called titin acts as a “ruler” for thick filaments, the proteins that make muscles contract.
