2021 was Northeast’s third-warmest year since 1895

For the Northeastern U.S., the year 2021 was third warmest – at an average of 49.5 degrees, which ties the year 2020 – since 1895, says the Northeast Regional Climate Center.

Student-built CubeSats to rendezvous in space

The Cornell Space Systems Design Studio is preparing to launch a pair of low-cost, modular satellites into low Earth orbit, where they will drift apart by up to 30 kilometers and then, using custom software, locate each other’s position, fire their thrusters and dock together.

Semiconductor demonstrates elusive quantum physics model

With a little twist and the turn of a voltage knob, Cornell researchers have shown that a single material system can toggle between two of the wildest states in condensed matter physics.

Upstate residents skittish on building utility-scale solar

As New York prepares for a carbon-free energy future, public support for utility-scale solar farms is much lower than support for smaller solar projects, says new Cornell research.

Bacteria biochemistry controlled with insoluble material

A Cornell study shows that certain materials can change the biochemical behavior of surface microbes living on them, and is the first to show an insoluble material exerting control over biochemical behaviors of bacteria.

Cornell scientists coolly recall fiery volcano visit

Far above the isle of La Palma in Spain’s Canary Islands, two Cornell scientists closely examined the airborne effects of the erupting Cumbre Vieja volcano.

Faster checkouts could reduce virus spread at stores

Researchers set out to model the probability of how often pairs of shoppers might overlap in a store – an approach that could be used to predict the transmission of COVID-19, and guide strategies to reduce its spread.

arXiv hits 2M submissions

The research-sharing platform is a free resource for scholars around the world in fields including physics, math and computer science, who use the service to share their own cutting-edge research and read work submitted by others.
