Controlling instabilities gives closer look at chemistry from hypersonic vehicles
Posted on Tuesday April 23, 2019

While studying the chemical reactions that occur in the flow of gases around a vehicle moving at hypersonic speeds, researchers use a less-is-more method to gain greater understanding of the role of chemical reactions in modifying unsteady flows that occur in the hypersonic flow around a double-wedge shape.

Water walking: The new mode of rock skipping
Posted on Tuesday April 23, 2019

Researchers not only reveal the physics of how elastic spheres interact with water, but they also lay the foundation for the future design of water-walking drones.

Researchers see health effects across generations from popular weed killer
Posted on Tuesday April 23, 2019

Researchers have found a variety of diseases and other health problems in the second- and third-generation offspring of rats exposed to glyphosate, the world's most popular weed killer.

Scratching the skin primes the gut for allergic reactions to food, mouse study suggests
Posted on Tuesday April 23, 2019

Scratching the skin triggers a series of immune responses culminating in an increased number of activated mast cells -- immune cells involved in allergic reactions -- in the small intestine, according to research conducted in mice. This newly identified skin-gut communication helps illuminate the relationship between food allergy and atopic dermatitis (a type of eczema), a disease characterized by dry, itchy skin.

When designing clinical trials for Huntington's disease, first ask the experts
Posted on Tuesday April 23, 2019

Progress in understanding the genetic mutation responsible for Huntington's disease (HD) and at least some molecular underpinnings of the disease has resulted in a new era of clinical testing of potential treatments. How best to design clinical trials in which HD patients are willing to participate and comply is a question faced by researchers.
