Several Kansas State University scientists are involved in the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment, or DUNE, a large international collaboration that is detecting and studying neutrinos to understand dark matter, black holes and the origins of the universe.
A team led by Southwest Research Institute will use airborne telescopes aboard NASA research aircraft to study the solar corona and Mercury's surface during this summer's total solar eclipse. The August 21 observations will provide the clearest images to date of the Sun's outer atmosphere and attempt the first-ever 'thermal images' of surface temperature variations on Mercury.
The American College of Cardiology (ACC), working with prominent hospitals in central and eastern China, is launching a series of educational forums for physicians on valvular heart disease prevention, diagnosis and management. The educational forums will address the growing burden of valvular heart disease in China, particularly for underserved patients that face barriers to health care services.
A multi-year partnership announced today establishes ongoing investment focused on Sydney's Quantum Nanoscience Laboratory to scale-up devices, as Microsoft moves from research to real-world engineering of quantum machines.

New tools transform make it easier and less time-consuming to create phylogenetic networks.
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is one of the most frequent liver diseases worldwide and an estimated 20 million people in Germany are affected. The aim of the joint research initiative that has been developed in cooperation of the Mainz University Medical Center, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU), and Goethe University Frankfurt is to employ a novel and applicable lifestyle intervention that is feasible and exerts a lasting benefit.
Researchers from EPFL, together with other institutes, have developed a robotic eel that swims through contaminated water to find the source of the pollution. The sensor-equipped robot can be controlled remotely or move on its own. In tests carried out in a small section of Lake Geneva, the robot was able to generate maps of water conductivity and temperature.
Getting kids interested in health and fitness is never easy, but tell them they are going to "train like an astronaut" and they suddenly can't wait to know more. As a response to the childhood obesity epidemic, NASA introduced Mission X: Train like an Astronaut in 2011. Since then it has morphed into a global collaboration of fitness challenges that has tens of thousands of young people testing their own agility, taking their own pulse, and learning how to get and stay healthy.
The Sanford Project: T-Rex Study, a Phase 2 clinical trial conducted collaboratively by Sanford Health and Caladrius Biosciences, Inc., (Caladrius)(Nasdaq: CLBS), has reached the halfway point for enrollment and treatment.
