Toshiba Develops Mini Lithium-Ion Battery That Recharges In A Minute - SpaceDaily  Leading Japanese electronics maker Toshiba said Tuesday it has developed a light and thin prototype battery that recharges 80 percent of capacity in just a minute. It also has a long life, losing only one percent of capacity after 1,000 cycles of discharging and recharging. Toshiba will put the new battery to commercial products in 2006. "Initial applications will be in the automotive and industrial sectors," it said, adding that the technology may also be used as an alternative power source for hybrid gasoline-electric cars.
Noisy Pictures Tell A Story Of 'Entangled' Atoms, JILA Physicists Find - SpaceDaily  Left:  Ultracold molecules (center) are split into entangled pairs of atoms flying apart in opposite directions. A laser beam (left) is used to create shadow images of the cloud (right). The pairs of entangled atoms can then be found by carefully studying the noise pattern in these pictures. Credit: Markus Greiner/JILA.  Patterns of noise - normally considered flaws - in images of an ultracold cloud of potassium provide the first-ever visual evidence of correlated ultracold atoms, a potentially useful tool for many applications, according to physicists at JILA, a joint institute of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the University of Colorado at Boulder.    

On Ammonia And Astrobiology - SpaceDaily  "The presence of features seen in Cassini's radar data would suggest that ammonia is at work on Titan, powering cryovolcanism. Cryovolcanism - water-ice volcanism - requires a liquid layer in the interior of Titan. It also requires an agent to lower the melting point density and mobility of liquid water. Ammonia does all these very well. if you add ammonia to liquid water, at the right temperature you get a material with the mobility, equivalent to that of basalt. How far has organic chemistry gone on the surface of Titan? If indeed material is raining out from the stratosphere, then what happens to this material at the surface?
