Special glasses give people superhuman colour vision
A pair of spectacles filter light to trick the eyes into seeing colour differently, letting people distinguish between hues that look the same but aren't

Artificial lungs in a backpack may free people with lung failure
People with lung failure usually have to stay connected to unwieldy machines Now a set of portable mechanical lungs could restore mobility and keep them healthier

Electronic devices banned on US-bound flights from 8 countries
The US bans passengers flying from countries including Jordan and Saudi Arabia from bringing laptops and other electronics in their carry-on luggage

Space view of Earth's magnetic rocks
Earth's history is recorded in the magnetisation of its hard, outer shell

Weather and climate extremes continue to set new records
Last year was bad, but 2017 is shaping to follow suit as carbon levels, temperatures and sea levels continue to rise, says the World Meteorological Organisation

Q&A: Lawrence Krauss on The Greatest Story Ever Told
Hidden, impermanent balances in nature have shaped the history of physics, and could determine our universe&rsquos future-- Read more on ScientificAmericancom

Trump?s tragic budget kills vital science to boost defence
The US president's spending plan ramps up defence at huge cost to climate and energy research The contradictions are beyond belief, says physicist Raymond Pierrehumbert

?Wavelet revolution? pioneer scoops top maths award
Yves Meyer wins the Abel Prize for role in theory with data applications from digital cinema to pinpointing gravitational waves

Estimating the glass transition temperature for polymers in 'confined geometries'
Polystyrene has a glass transition temperature of about 100 C -- at room temperature it behaves like a solid material But as its temperature approaches the glass transition temperature, polystyrenes mechanical properties change drastically This makes the ability to approximate glass transitions for confined geometries in polymers highly desirable And now, as researchers report that theyve developed a simple formula to do just that

Manipulating magnetic textures
While the ability to easily control the magnetic properties of small electronic systems is highly desirable for future small electronics and data storage, an effective solution has proven to be extremely elusive But now, a group of researchers reports a simple way to gain control of magnetism that starts by controlling the shape of the systems
