Astronomers Have Caught a Star Literally Dragging Space-Time Around With It – ScienceAlert

MATTHEW BAILES & VIVEK VENKATRAMAN KRISHNAN, THE CONVERSATION 31 JAN 2020 One of the predictions of Einstein's general theory of relativity is that any spinning body drags the very fabric of space-time in its vicinity around with it. This is known as "frame-dragging". In everyday life, frame-dragging is both undetectable and inconsequential, as the effect…

Sustainable New Material Captures Carbon Dioxide at high rate – SciTechDaily

The new material is a bio-based hybrid foam, infused with a high amount of CO2-adsorbing ‘zeolites’ – microporous aluminosilicates. This material has been shown to have very promising properties. The porous, open structure of the material gives it a great ability to adsorb the carbon dioxide. Credit: Yen Strandqvist/Chalmers University of Technology In a joint…
