? The power of economy??New metal-organic frameworks could make the transport, storage, and delivery of hydrogen much easier and open the door to what has been described as a hydrogen-based economy.
? Climatic models??A fundamental flaw in our models of global climate change has been exposed by Sallie Baliunas of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.
? Odor sniffers??Tracking down smells that even the most sensitive human nose cannot pick up is now possible, thanks to an inexpensive sensor devised by scientists at the University of Bonn.
? Combined effort for cholesterol? New drugs for lipid disorders might be on the horizon thanks to new work on the transcriptional sensor FXR (farnesoid X receptor).
