Northern Canada has been keeping a secret from the rest of the world. It’s home to “Resurrection,” a tectonic plate that has been much theorized but never found until now. A team of researchers used what amounts to a CAT scan of northern Canada and the mantle underneath it to find the missing plate.
Finding it could lead to better hazard prediction and also to finding mineral and hydrocarbon deposits. But better than that, it’s helping scientists piece together Earth’s history.
A missing tectonic…

In research undertaken at Purdue University, in Indiana, engineers have produced the remarkable acrylic paint. It makes use of passive radiative cooling technology, which keeps surfaces 10 degrees Celsius below the ambient temperature at night and at least 1.7 degrees Celsius below the ambient temperature at noon.
“It’s very counterintuitive for a surface in direct sunlight to be cooler than the temperature your local weather station reports for that area, but we’ve shown this to be possible,” said…

Scientists have created a new ultra-white paint that can reflect 95.5 percent of the sunlight that reaches its surface. This incredible property allows something coated in this paint, like a building, to cool below the temperatures of its surroundings even under direct sunlight. An incredible technical achievement that could go towards combatting global warming.
Reporting in the journal Cell Reports Physical Science, the team tested the paint over the course of two days. When the Sun was at its…
