Does space exploration impact how astronauts’ bodies age? Could there be a correlation between microgravity and the onset of age-related diseases? These are questions researchers from the Academic Space Initiative Switzerland are trying to answer.

Combining a laser system and machine learning to combat lice, teams from Norway’s Cermaq and Stingray Marine Solutions are joining forces to help salmon and trout thrive.

Researchers at the University of Chicago have figured out how to do the impossible: generate mid-infrared light using colloidal quantum dots. This could redefine and revolutionize optical gas sensing, lasers, and optoelectronics applications.
