The professor’s invention is a child-friendly introduction to the chemistry of light.

If you can see, our world can be wildly colorful. In ultraviolet light, once-familiar objects can take on a dreamlike radiance: think neon green scorpions, hot pink flying squirrels and bright blue diamond rings.

At the center of the world: chemist Dal celebrates the creation of fundamental science in his discipline – Dal News

“Chemistry is often called the central science because it intersects with physics and biology. It’s all around us. Everything can be explained in chemistry,” says Dalhousie theoretical chemist Erin Johnson, who was named the latest recipient of the Stacey Award, one of Canada’s most prestigious awards for emerging scientists. And, if it’s all chemistry, Dr. …

Meteorites contain the last chemical ingredients to create human DNA. Here’s what we know

A new study of meteorites that have fallen in Australia, the US and Canada supports the notion that, early in Earth’s history, such objects could have delivered the chemical ingredients vital to the origin of life. Scientists have previously found three of the five chemical components needed to form DNA on meteors, and last week …
