NASA's James Webb Space Telescope to Reveal Secrets of the Red Planet

Mars rovers and orbiters have found signs that Mars once hosted liquid water on its surface. Much of that water escaped over time. How much water was lost, and how does the water that’s left move from ice to atmosphere to soil? During its first year of operations, NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope will seek answers. Webb also will study mysterious methane plumes that hint at possible geological or even biological activity.

Gut Reactions to Improve Probiotics

Researchers at Stanford University are studying how bacteria living in the gut respond to common changes within their habitat, working with mice. They change the gut environment within the mice, and then measure which bacterial species survive the change and how the gut environment itself has changed. They also study the physiological response of the bacteria -- if they grow faster or slower, or produce different proteins. The work was presented during the Biophysical Society Meeting, held Feb. 17-21.

Supercomputers Aid Discovery of New, Inexpensive Material to Make LEDs with Excellent Color Quality

Computers have helped researchers develop a new phosphor that can make LEDs cheaper and render colors more accurately. An international team led by engineers at UC San Diego first predicted the new phosphor using supercomputers and data mining algorithms, then developed a simple recipe to make it in the lab. Unlike many phosphors, this one is made of inexpensive, earth-abundant elements and can easily be made using industrial methods. As computers predicted, the new phosphor performed well in tests and in LED prototypes.

Why Bees Soared and Slime Flopped as Inspirations for Systems Engineering

Honeybee behavior inspired a web hosting algorithm that saved significant costs. Nature can serve as a wonderful model for engineering, but it can also flop. Take slime mold: As a model for connectivity, it falls flat in comparison with classical algorithms.
