Physicists at IIT Kanpur propose hydrodynamic entropy to explain 2nd Law of Thermodynamics

Researchers from the Department of Physics, IIT Kanpur, have discovered that 2D Euler flow—flow with zero viscosity–evolves from disorder to order. The study involving analytical arguments and accurate numerical simulations provides useful insights that can help the manner in which scientists approach important fundamental topics such as order to disorder evolution, Second Law of Thermodynamics and thermalization, the process through …

Exquisitely preserved embryo found inside fossilised dinosaur egg

A 72 to 66-million-year-old embryo found inside a fossilised dinosaur egg sheds new light on the link between the behaviour of modern birds and dinosaurs, according to a new study. The embryo, dubbed ‘Baby Yingliang’, was discovered in the Late Cretaceous rocks of Ganzhou, southern China and belongs to a toothless theropod dinosaur, or oviraptorosaur. Among the most complete dinosaur …

Human waste contaminating urban water leads to ‘superbug’ spread – study

Contamination of urban lakes, rivers and surface water by human waste is creating pools of ‘superbugs’ in Low- and Middle-Income Countries (LMIC)  – but improving access to clean water, sanitation and sewerage infrastructure could help to protect people’s health, a new study reveals. Researchers studied bodies of water in urban and rural sites in three areas of Bangladesh – Mymensingh, Shariatpur …

SATAT initiative can do well with strong impetus given to Compressed Biogas: Mavcomm, SIMC study

In October 2018, the MoPNG (Ministry of petroleum & Natural Gas) launched SATAT (Sustainable Alternative Towards Affordable Transportation) initiative. Under this, the Government plans to promote alternative transportation fuel through production of Compressed Bio Gas (CBG) from various waste and biomass sources in the country. With inclusion of forest waste, Agri-waste, animal husbandry waste and marine waste, SATAT involves a …

IISER Bhopal Scientists discover a new species of the African Violet plant from Mizoram

Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER) Bhopal Researchers have recently discovered a new species of plant belonging to the African Violets family in Mizoram and adjacent areas in Myanmar. Along with other discoveries by the IISER Bhopal Research Team in the past few years, this discovery shows that the biodiversity of the Northeastern parts of India is understudied …

Shiv Nadar University develops a molecule with potential to cure COVID-19

A team of researchers led by Dr Subhabrata Sen from the Department of Chemistry, Shiv Nadar University, along with his collaborator Professor Ralf Jockers, Institut Cochin (INSERM, CNRS, Université de Paris, France), has discovered a set of New Chemical Entities (NCEs) with the ability to cure Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) or Acute Lung Injury (ALI) induced by COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) or other …
