An international team of astronomers from UC San Diego, the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias and the University of Cambridge have detected large amounts of oxygen in the atmosphere of one of the oldest and most elementally depleted stars known as “J0815+4729.”
UC San Diego’s Seth Cohen and his research team, including colleagues at Germany’s Ruhr University Bochum led by Nils Metzler-Nolte, used a new type of metal-based molecular building block to serve as the basis for developing new therapeutic drugs. Their work is published in Chemical Science.
Researchers from UC San Diego and MIT achieved impressive agreement between theory and experiment, shedding light on how water interacts with MOFs and moving closer to developing materials that address global water scarcity.
With a new grant of $4 million from the National Science Foundation, UC San Diego’s Neal Devaraj and Yale University’s Farren Isaacs are launching new research that will help assess the risks and rewards of mirror life.
UC San Diego’s Richard Lingenfelter, a research physicist emeritus at the Center for Astrophysics and Space Sciences, confirms the source of the universe’s cosmic rays—the most energetic particles known.
Scientists thought they knew everything there was to know about how and why bacterial cells moved around, but back-to-back articles in Nature by UC San Diego’s Terence Hwa reveal how little they understood bacteria movement en masse.
Researchers from UC San Diego and Rhodes College find direct evidence for the first time of the role of galactic winds in creating the circumgalactic medium.
UC San Diego Theoretical Physicist Max Di Ventra is catching the next wave of cutting-edge AI with an alternative platform he calls “memcomputing,” which doesn’t require quantum capabilities.
Space. The proverbial final frontier. “These are the voyages” of new centenarian and renowned astronomer Margaret Burbidge. Her mission to understand the stuff stars are made of has taken her boldly where no woman has gone before …
