It's theoretically possible to produce about 500 times as much energy from algae fuels as is needed to grow the fuels, according to a new study by researchers at The University of Texas at Austin. However, limited by existing technology, the researchers found in a separate study that their algae growing facility is getting out… » Continue Reading

Atom Stopper: In his quest to control atoms to a greater and greater degree, Professor Mark Raizen has borrowed ideas from chemistry, electromechanics and plasma physics. His journey demonstrates scientific creativity and the parts that serendipity and intuition play in discovery and that ideas can come from unexpected sources and arrive at unlikely times and places. It started in 2005 when Raizen took up the idea of controlling atoms.
