New research reveals hitherto-unknown state of liquid water

You'd think that we already know everything there is to know about water, a compound that makes up nearly 60-percent of our body. Turns out there's more to it than meets the eye. As part of a new study, for instance, scientists have discovered a second, hitherto-unknown state of liquid water, achieved when heated to…

New Polymer Stores Solar Energy During Day And Releases Heat At Night-2

MIT scientists develop polymer that harvests solar energy during day and releases heat at night

With countries slowly increasing their solar power capacity, researchers are actively looking for ways to develop efficient energy storage systems. A team of MIT scientists, for instance, has created an entirely new material that is capable of storing solar energy during daytime, and later releasing it as heat when needed. Unlike similar research, however, the study…
