Researchers investigate the benefits of a wet dog nose

Researchers investigate the benefits of a wet dog nose

All dog owners have had their pet smash their nose against their face or other body parts. Often dog noses are cold and slimy feeling, but other times they are warm and dry. Most pet owners have, at some point, wondered if their dog's nose should be wet or dry. Researchers have recently investigated the noses of animals and determined that it is normal for a dog's nose to be cold and wet, but it's also normal for a dog to have a warm and dry nose.

Researchers create microscope-based thermometer using quantum technology

Researchers create microscope-based thermometer using quantum technology

A team of researchers from Osaka City University worked with international partners to create a reliable and precise microscope-based thermometer using quantum technology. The thermometer is so accurate that it's able to measure the temperature of microscopic animals. The technology can detect temperature-dependent properties of quantum spins and fluorescent nanodiamonds.

Hubble observations suggest a discrepancy in dark matter theories

Hubble observations suggest a discrepancy in dark matter theories

Observations made using the Hubble Space Telescope have helped scientists worldwide solve mysteries and gather data since it was placed in orbit many years ago. Recently, astronomers have used Hubble observations to discover a discrepancy between theoretical models of how dark matter should be distributed in galaxy clusters and observations of dark matter's grip on galaxy clusters.

Engineers create a soft wearable device that simulates the sense of touch

Researchers from UNSW Sydney have created a soft wearable device worn like a glove that can simulate the sense of touch. The wearable device has potential for use in medical, industrial, and entertainment applications. Researchers say that the wearable device could allow users to touch a loved one during a video call or pick up and handle a tool in a video game.

VW ID.4 EV prototype testing video offers inside details

Volkswagen has been working on its ID.4 electric vehicle for a while and has produced a new video talking about some of the testing and what's going on behind the scenes. The VW ID.4 is the automaker's first long-range electric SUV that will be sold on the American market. Those on the project note that what American buyers want for an EV is different from what Europeans want, and efforts are being made to customize the vehicle for specific markets.

OSIRIS-REx observes asteroid Bennu particle ejection events up close

Researchers in charge of the OSIRIS-REx mission have reported detailed observations of asteroid Bennu shedding material regularly. The spacecraft has provided scientists with the ability to observe the asteroid's activity at close range for the first time. The surface of the asteroid is highly active and builds a picture of asteroids as being very dynamic.

NASA develops new gears able to withstand the extreme cold of the Moon

NASA develops new gears able to withstand the extreme cold of the Moon

One of the challenges of exploring space and other locations is extreme cold. During the NASA Artemis mission to the moon, temperatures on the South Pole will drop drastically during the night. At some point in the future, NASA wants to explore Europa, one of Jupiter's moons where temperatures never get above -260 degrees Fahrenheit at the equator. NASA has been preparing for these frigid temperatures by developing special gears able to withstand extreme temperatures.

Blocking the protein myostatin keeps mice muscled in space

Blocking the protein myostatin keeps mice muscled in space

One of the challenges astronauts face during space missions is a loss of muscle and bone mass. Microgravity causes muscles and bones to weaken over time. Currently, the way NASA fights bone and muscle loss for astronauts on the ISS is with specialized exercise programs. However, with longer duration missions, such as trips to Mars, exercise programs won't be sufficient. Researchers are looking at a protein called Myostatin (MSTN) in mice testing to help astronauts maintain muscle and bone mass.
