It may seem like some kind of delicate flower head, but you’re actually looking at the results of a computational model which is used to predict what happens inside a star when it spins quickly on its axis. Read more >>
Virtually every researcher relies on computers to collect or analyse data. But when computers are opaque black boxes that manipulate data, it’s impossible to replicate studies – a core value for science.
We’re used to thinking of silicon as being the go-to material in computer architecture, but now a team of scientists has shown that a random assembly of cold nanoparticles can evolve to perform computational tasks too.
