A University of Saskatchewan student is researching a process that could make purifying water efficient and sustainable.
The Canadian Light Source — also known as the synchrotron — has lined up $67 million in funding before its upcoming four year budget cycle even begins. But the search for cash continues.
How do you journey to the centre of the earth? Well, you don’t. But with an overpowered mini-furnace and a big piston, you can get several kilometers down, or at least simulate those conditions.
A team of researchers led by University of Victoria professor Tim Stockwell concluded raising the minimum price of beverages with high alcohol content reduces their consumption. A study focusing mainly on pricing strategies in Saskatchewan concluded that prices should be raised for any drink over 6.5% alcohol content.
The synchroton is no longer emitting any light after a failure of the system’s cooling plant shut down the light source and all research being done at the facility. Research at the Canadian Light Source was brought to a halt last month after the cryoplant, the cooling system for the synchrotron, failed Oct. 6.
A protein found in semen has been shown to cause the female brain to trigger ovulation. An international team of scientists led by University of Saskatchewan veterinary biomedical sciences professor Gregg Adams made the discovery and published their findings Aug. 20 in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
A blast of energetic particles from the sun collided with Earth early Thursday, causing disruptions in all four of the University of Saskatchewan’s SuperDARN radars.
By pinpointing the exact moment when a black hole launched fast- moving material from the region surrounding it, a University of Alberta astronomer has uncovered an important clue for discovering how new galaxies are formed. The interaction of material ejected, or “burped,” from black holes with other gasses in space is fundamental to the creation of
The leaders of several top virology labs have agreed to a 60-day halt on research involving new strains of avian influenza that are more transmissible in mammals. The agreement was spearheaded by Ron Fouchier, a Dutch virologist and the lead author of a controversial study on bird flu, currently in press at Science.
What started in 2009 as a side project with low expectations has quickly yielded impressive results and garnered funding from the National Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada. University of Calgary biochemistry professor Raymond Turner began working with Howard Ceri, a U of C biology professor, on creating a biofilm that would assist in the
