Record-breaking solar flight reaches Hawaii after 5 nights and days airborne without fuel
The longest and most difficult leg of the Round the World Solar Flight attempted since last March by Swiss explorers Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg ended successfully in Hawaii. At the controls of Solar Impulse 2, pilot André Borschberg landed safely in Hawaii after flying 117 hours and 52 minutes over the Pacific Ocean from Japan powered only by the sun.

A 'movie' of ultrafast rotating molecules at a hundred billion per second
Can you imagine how subnano-scale molecules make an ultrafast rotation at a hundred billion per second? Do the ultrafast rotating subnano-scale molecules show a wave-like nature rather than particle-like behavior? Scientists took sequential 'snapshots' of ultrafast unidirectionally rotating molecules at a hundred billion per second to see for themselves.

Stronger action needed to transform the UK's energy system
(University College London) An ambitious policy package is essential for the UK to transform its energy system to achieve the deep reductions in carbon emissions required to avoid dangerous climate change, according to research led by UCL scientists. To meet climate targets set for 2050, policies need to ensure strong action is taken now, while preparing for fundamental changes in how energy is provided and used in the long term.

A 'movie' of ultrafast rotating molecules at a hundred billion per second
(National Institutes of Natural Sciences) Can you imagine how subnano-scale molecules make an ultrafast rotation at a hundred billion per second? Do the ultrafast rotating subnano-scale molecules show a wave-like nature rather than particle-like behavior? The Japanese research team led by Professor Yasuhiro Ohshima at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, and Dr. Kenta Mizuse at the Institute for Molecular Science, National Institutes of Natural Sciences, successfully took sequential 'snapshots' of ultrafast unidirectionally rotating molecules at a hundred billion per second.

'Invisible' protein structure explains the power of enzymes
(Umea University) A research group at Umeĺ University in Sweden has managed to capture and describe a protein structure that, until now, has been impossible to study. The discovery lays the base for developing designed enzymes as catalysts to new chemical reactions for instance in biotechnological applications. The result of the study is published in the journal Nature Communications.
