How a ‘Star Wars’ Parody Turned Into a Tool for Scientific Discovery (Video)

Science has long inspired the arts, but examples of the reverse scenario are sparse. Now scientists who set out to produce a “Star Wars” parody have inadvertently created such an example. Incorporating animation techniques from the film industry, the researchers developed a robust new modeling tool that could help spur new molecular discoveries. Their project, reported in ACS Nano,resulted in a short film about fertilization called “The Beginning.”For a look behind-the-scenes, watch ACS' Headline Science video.

Protecting Future Generations: Scientists Study Arctic Community’s Exposure to Toxic Pollutants

Two professors with Northern Arizona University’s Center for Bioengineering Innovation (CBI) and Department of Biological Sciences—environmental physiologist Loren Buck and ecotoxicologist Frank von Hippel—are working on a long-term research project studying the link between the toxic chemicals polluting St. Lawrence Island, Alaska, and the health of the island’s population.

Lawrence Livermore Plasma Optic Combines Lasers to Form ‘Superbeam’

For 40 years, the Death Star has remained one of science fiction’s most iconic figures. The image of Alderaan’s destruction at the hands of the Death Star’s superlaser is burned into the memory of millions of fans. But it’s long been argued that the technology utilized by the Death Star could never make the jump from sci-fi into reality – scientific theory says that rather than converging and combining their energy, the beams would just pass through one another. That was true – until now. A team of researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) have added a plasma – a charged mixture of ions and free electrons -- to the concept and successfully combined several separate lasers into a superbeam.
