Army Research Office Awards Funds for Study on Energy Needed to Fracture Rock

The Army Research Office has awarded a three-year grant of up to $357,330 to a University of Texas at Arlington geophysicist using new technology to better define the energy needed to fracture rock at the surface and below ground. [More]
E. coli Cells Join Salt Crystallisation and Modulate Growth of Sodium Chloride Crystals

E. coli Cells Join Salt Crystallisation and Modulate Growth of Sodium Chloride Crystals

For the first time, Spanish researchers have detected an unknown interaction between microorganisms and salt. When Escherichia coli cells are introduced into a droplet of salt water and is left to dry, bacteria manipulate the sodium chloride crystallisation to create biomineralogical biosaline 3D morphologically complex formations, where they hibernate.
