US Army camera captures explosives in fine detail
When the script of Lawrence of Arabia called for wrecking a train, director David Lean found it easiest to go ahead and wreck a train, orchestrating and filming it with expert precision. Similarly, while it's possible to study explosives, sans explosives, new techniques involving high-speed, high-fidelity imaging with optical filtering and signal processing techniques have recently made setting off explosives and capturing the data in real-time a reasonable alternative to developing a new simulation.

Team analyzed network heterogeneity of suprachiasmatic nucleus to reverse age-related decline in circadian rhythm
If you've ever felt groggy the morning after traversing time zones, you can thank the temporary mismatch between your body's 24-hour circadian rhythm and your new local time. In mammals, this rhythm is governed on a neuronal and hormonal level by the suprachiasmatic nucleus, a tiny region of the brain's nestled directly above the two optic nerves. But it's not just a long flight that can throw us out of whack. As we age, the suprachiasmatic nucleus, or SCN, tends to exhibit a weaker circadian rhythm, which can result in sleep disorders, metabolic syndrome and depression.

Scientists develop a simulation model to take the guesswork out of calculating the roughness of a sphere
The scientific community uses spheres for all sorts of things—artificial limbs, cars, molecular chemistry—but there's always a little uncertainty when this geometric shape is introduced into an experiment. While spheres might look smooth and round to the naked eye, their surfaces are far from it. Even a ball bearing, when held up to intense scrutiny, is riddled with peaks and valleys. These inconsistencies change how the spheres interact with the world and can cause problems for everything from surface measurements to the strength of electrical currents.
