Scientists refrigerate water with laser for the first time

In first, researchers from the University of Washington have refrigerated water and other liquids with laser under real-world conditions.

Since the first laser was invented in 1960, those concentrated beams of light have never been able to cool liquids.

The team used an infrared laser to cool water by about 2.2 degree Celsius — a major breakthrough in the field.

Venus-Like Planet Found 39 Light Years Away

Astronomers have discovered a new Venus-like rocky exoplanet 39 light years away, which may be cool enough to potentially host an atmosphere.

If it does, it is close enough that we could study that atmosphere in detail with the Hubble Space Telescope and future observatories like the Giant Magellan Telescope, researchers said.

"Our ultimate goal is to find a twin Earth, but along the way we've found a twin Venus," said astronomer David Charbonneau of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA) in US.

World's first `porous' liquid to filter carbon emissions developed

LONDON: In a breakthrough, scientists have developed the world's first 'porous' liquid that can potentially be used to capture harmful carbon emissions to prevent them from entering the Earth's atmosphere. 

New tunable filter to provide high speed internet

Scientists have developed a new filter with the widest tuning span ever demonstrated on a silicon chip that could help provide the low-cost flexibility needed for next generation of high-speed optical networks.

The path towards a faster internet has been hindered by energy consumption and cost per optical component, said Wei Shi, Assistant Professor from Universite Laval in Canada.

Ford India Recalled 16,444 Units of ECO SPORT Compact Suv for Suspension Promlem

Ford India has recalled over 16000 units of compact SUV Ecosport which were manufactured in the period of November 2013 to April 2014. Ford India has recalled such numbers of compact SUV in order to inspect a potential problem with rear suspension which may lead to an accident.
