Dissolvable fabric loaded with medicine might offer faster protection against HIV
Bioengineers have discovered a potentially faster way to deliver a topical drug that protects women from contracting HIV. Their method spins the drug into silk-like fibers that quickly dissolve when in contact with moisture, releasing higher doses of the drug than possible with other topical materials.

Finding quantum lines of desire
What paths do quantum particles, such as atoms or photons, follow through quantum state space? Scientists have used an "artificial atom" to continuously and repeatedly record the paths through quantum state space. From the cobweb of a million paths, a most likely path between two quantum states emerged, much as social trails emerge as people round off corners or cut across lawns between buildings.

Nature inspires a greener way to make colorful plastics
Long before humans figured out how to create colors, nature had already perfected the process -- think stunning, bright butterfly wings of many different hues, for example. Now scientists are tapping into those secrets to develop a more environmentally friendly way to make colored plastics. Their method uses structure -- or the shapes and architectures of materials -- rather than dyes, to produce colors.

Watching Schrödinger's cat die (or come to life)
(University of California - Berkeley) Quantum mechanics holds that a system can be in more than one state at a time, only collapsing into a definite state when someone measures it. A cat is both dead and alive until someone opens the box. UC Berkeley scientists have for the first time followed the evolution of entangled quantum states to a classical state, showing that collapse is not instantaneous: you can watch the cat as it dies or comes to life.

NASA catches two tropical troublemakers in Northwestern Pacific: Halong and 96W
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) There are two tropical low pressure areas in the Northwestern Pacific Ocean today and they're close enough to each other to be captured in one image generated from data gathered by NASA's Aqua satellite.

NASA sees zombie Tropical Depression Genevieve reborn
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Infrared imagery from NASA's Aqua satellite helped confirm that the remnant low pressure area of former Tropical Storm Genevieve has become a zombie storm, and has been reborn as a tropical depression on July 30.
