Dinosaur-dooming asteroid struck earth at 'deadliest possible' angle
Imperial College London

The simulations show that the asteroid hit Earth at an angle of about 60 degrees, which maximised the amount of climate-changing gases thrust into the upper atmosphere.

Understanding ceramic materials’ ‘mortar’ may reveal ways to improve them
University of Wisconsin-Madison

New research shows that in the important ceramic material silicon carbide, carbon atoms collect at those grain boundaries when the material is exposed to radiation. The finding could help engineers better understand the properties of ceramics and could aid in fine-tuning a new generation of ceramic materials.

A clinical trial in people with the new coronavirus is testing a drug that may halt an overactive immune response before it ramps up.

Newswise: Why Toothpaste and Cement Harden Over Time

Why Toothpaste and Cement Harden Over Time
University of Delaware

Cements, clays, soils, inks, paints, and even toothpaste. Many paste materials, also known as dense colloidal suspensions, stiffen as they age. Structural dynamics, or changes in the loads the materials undergo over time, are partly responsible for this change, but for decades, experts have suspected that there’s more going on inside these materials. Now, a University of Delaware professor and an international team of researchers have discovered a process called contact-controlled aging that explains some age-related changes in paste materials.

NUS researchers develop a new library of atomically thin 2D materials
National University of Singapore

Researchers from the National University of Singapore have created a new collection of atomically thin two-dimensional materials. Using novel synthesis conditions for transition metal dichalcogenides, more than 10 new materials have been made by the team, with many more still to be discovered.
