|And for something completely different...|
Here's a roundup of some of the latest awesomeness from the science! world. (Or, we might just say, "the world" since it's the same thing.)
- Put down your #2 pencil and collect the shavings, because room temperature superconductivity has been demonstrated in soaked graphite granules. As pointed out in the article, the result is more tantalizing than ground breaking, but the implications for superconductivity in such an abundant material are intriguing.
- More research indicating that healthy debate is critical to creativity and productivity among groups. Mind you, healthy debate is the key here, and this article lists examples of positive argument techniques practiced at successful companies like Xerox and Pixar.
- The deepest ever view of the universe has been assembled from more than 10 years worth of Hubble images.
There you are. Now enjoy your day.
