Very low Swiss sperm quality underscores a troubling worldwide trend, finds a new study (n=2,523), which suggests that an important amount of men will probably take more time to conceive. 17% had sperm counts below WHO thresholds, and 43% had a percentage of abnormal sperm.

Supercomputers Solve a Mystery Hidden Inside Merging Water Droplets | As the droplets got closer together tiny, ultrafast waves formed on the surfaces. The waves touch, forming bridges between the droplets. Surface tension gets to work, sealing more ripples together “like the zip on a jacket”.

Researchers have created a powerful new molecule for the extraction of salt from liquid. The work has the potential to help increase the amount of drinkable water on Earth. The new molecule is about 10 billion times improved compared to a similar structure created over a decade ago.

Scientists created high-tech wood by removing the lignin from natural wood using hydrogen peroxide. The remaining wood is very dense and has a tensile strength of around 404 megapascals, making it 8.7 times stronger than natural wood and comparable to metal structure materials including steel.
