Even with Defects, Graphene Is Strongest Material in the World

Columbia University School of Engineering and Applied Science

Columbia Engineering researchers demonstrate that graphene, even if stitched together from many small crystalline grains, is almost as strong as graphene in its perfect crystalline form. This resolves a contradiction between theoretical simulations, which predicted grain boundaries can be strong, and earlier experiments, which indicated they were much weaker than the perfect lattice.

Mapping Sea Salt From Orbit: Building Better Ocean and Climate Models

University of South Carolina

Climate is greatly influenced by the flow of heat energy carried by ocean currents. But precisely quantifying the mixing between the ocean and the atmosphere is hampered by a lack of detail in models of the ocean and of the water cycle. And in both models, knowing the salt content of the water is essential.

Researchers May Have Found Key to Cushing Disease

University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Health Sciences

Testicular orphan nuclear receptor 4 (TR4) is overexpressed in pituitary tumors that spark the excess production of adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH). The scientists discovered that by knocking down TR4 in lab mice, they were able to reverse tumor growth and excess ACTH production.
