Public Support Hydrogen and Biofuels to Decarbonize Global Shipping

New research into public attitudes towards alternative shipping fuels shows public backing for biofuel and hydrogen. The study also found that nuclear was preferred to the heavy fuel oil (HFO) currently used in the global shipping industry, although both were perceived negatively. Ammonia had the ...

New Driver for Shapes of Small Quark-Gluon Plasma Drops?

New measurements of how particles flow from collisions of different types of particles at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) have provided new insights into the origin of the shape of hot specks of matter generated in these collisions. The results may lead to a deeper understanding of the ...

To Boost Supply Chains, Scientists Are Looking at Ways to Recover Valuable Materials from Water

Calculation Shows Why Heavy Quarks Get Caught Up in the Flow

Theorists have calculated how quickly a melted soup of quarks and gluons -- the building blocks of protons and neutrons -- transfers its momentum to heavy quarks. The calculation will help explain experimental results showing heavy quarks getting caught up in the flow of matter generated in heavy ...
