Wings help butterflies hear
In the process of evolution, insects have a variety of hearing organs. In particular, many butterflies have tiny ears – cavities at the base of the front wings, which are usually covered with a membrane. However, scientists did not know that these animals can hear even better – with the help of wings.
The curvature of galactic disks indicated a “fifth force”
Similar limitations were also established for very large scales: in September of this year, a group of scientists led by Jens Jasche analyzed the deviations between the centers of radiation of stars and molecular hydrogen of individual galaxies and showed that the ratio ΔG / G does not exceed 10−4 for distances about 50 megaparsek.
China’s inclusion in the ISS program will help save the station
The stubborn refusal of the United States to allow China into the ISS program could be one of the reasons for the worsening of the situation aboard the station related to the accident at the launch of the Soyuz MS-10, and a possible prospect of its leaving without crew, said former astronaut Leroy Chiao.
Birds made up for their inability to sing with bright plumage and vice versa.
Sexual selection in birds can be regulated by several parameters. First, it is a color: the plumage of males of many species is much brighter than that of females (this is one of the clearest examples of sexual dimorphism). Secondly, songbirds can also attract females with acoustic signals.
Acoustic Levitator taught to bend around obstacles
One of the problems in creating acoustic levitators, creating a high-resolution sound field, is that conventional ultrasonic emitters, due to their size, are difficult to locate at a short distance from each other.

Physicists first got the Bose condensate in zero gravity
For the first time, physicists from Germany, the USA and France obtained and investigated the Bose condensate of cold rubidium-87 atoms in zero gravity. For this, scientists used the MAIUS-1 meteorological rocket, which climbed to an altitude of more than 240 kilometers and spent about six minutes in free fall.
Blue phosphorus can become a competitor to graphene.
Black recently found application in electronics. In 2014, scientists pointed to the possibility of the existence of the fifth modification of phosphorus – blue, which could become as effective a semiconductor as black phosphorus or graphene.
Scientists will teach robots to independently perceive space
To create fully autonomous robots, researchers may have to retreat from familiar methods and allow robotic agents to develop their own perception of the world.
Molecular computer will allow you to create programmable tablets
Scientists have created a molecular computer that can read information encoded in cell signaling systems. This will allow to understand the details of their functioning, as well as to use their features to create programmable drugs.
