Haze Particles Cool Pluto’s Atmosphere, New Research Finds
It turns out solid-phase haze particles help cool the atmosphere of the dwarf planet Pluto. That’s according to new research by planetary scientists from the University of California, Santa Cruz, and elsewhere. The gas composition of a planet’s atmosphere generally determines how much heat gets trapped in the atmosphere. For Pluto, however, the predicted temperature [...]

Study first to connect stress-associated brain activity with cardiovascular risk
A study led by Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISSMS) investigators has linked, for the first time in humans, activity in a stress-sensitive structure within the brain to the risk of subsequent cardiovascular disease. The team's findings, being published in the journal The Lancet, also reveals a pathway leading from activation of that structure—the amygdala—through elevated immune system activity to an increased incidence of cardiovascular events.

Spending too much time alone can be unhealthy and there is growing evidence that the psychosocial effects of too much solitude can last a lifetime. But newly published research suggests that not all forms of social withdrawal are detrimental.
