This SEM image comes courtesy of Roey Elnathan and Nicolas Voelcker at Monash University, and their co-workers, demonstrating using vertical silicon nanotubes (SiNTs) to manipulate cell growth and gene enhancing through intracellular supply of small molecules. The large scale bar represents 10 µm, whilst the scale bar within the inset represents just 2 µm.

Ebony McIntosh devotes her time — and her home — to care for sick and injured microbats. She explains what’s involved in bat rescue and why she is so enthusiastic about saving these animals. Experts say regardless of recent headlines we nonetheless do not know how long our immunity to COVID-19 lasts and so they’re nonetheless optimistic a few vaccine. This version of Pioneers in Science celebrates physicist Wilhelm Röntgen, winner of the 1901 Nobel Prize in Physics for his discovery of “a new sort of ray”.

The planks on this “woodpile” design are a mere 30 nanometers aside from each other. Frederik Mayer and Martin Wegener of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, and their co-staff built this tiny object utilizing a new materials for 3D printing. Xiaohu Gao from the University of Washington and associates mix two highly effective technologies; quantum dots and a method for amplifying the fluorescence given off by imaging molecules, called signal amplification by trade reaction (SABER).

Jonathan Hopkins of the University of California, Los Angeles and associates report a scalable approach to assembling 3D arrays of microgranular crystals using holographic optical tweezers. Vascular networks are central elements of organ‐on‐a‐chip methods.

Scientists Identify Alaskan Volcano That May Have Helped The Rise Of The Roman Empire

Jesper Nygård and Thomas Sand Jespersen from the University of Copenhagen and their co-workers have created a crystal growth platform for in situ progress of semiconductor/superconductor hybrids. The technique eliminates the necessity for etching, enabling full freedom within the choice of hybrid constituents. There is art in science and science in artwork — here we’ve put collectively some of the most inspiring science images revealed in our journals this month.
