A team of scientists from the UK (University of Warwick) and Canada (York University) have demonstrated a system to code any generic message into evaporated alcohol molecules. The researchers believe their molecular communications system, which works in a similar fashion to how animals communicate with pheromones, could be used for the transmission of messages and […]

Metallic vapor behind noctilucent reflectivity?
By Will Parker on September 26, 2008 in News
An explanation for the radar reflecting property of noctilucent clouds – the thin, wispy clouds that hover at the edge of space at 85 km altitude – has been proposed by a plasma physicist from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), possibly laying to rest a decades-long mystery. Noctilucent clouds, also known as night-shining clouds, […]
