Building with flexible blocks
On an apparently normal cube a pattern of hollows and bulges appears when the cube is compressed. Physicists from Leiden University and FOM Institute AMOLF together with colleagues from Tel Aviv University have developed a method to design such three-dimensional More info

Origin of Neutrino Signal Remains a Mystery
Physicists have studied the astrophysical neutrino signal as reported by the IceCube collaboration from a different angle with their ANTARES detector. The Milky Way centre was an obvious prime suspect to be a source, but this hypothesis is now only More info

NWO Veni Grant for Bouncing Balls on Hot Plate
Physicist Scott Waitukaitis receives an NWO Veni grant to research the Leidenfrost effect for squishy materials. This effect is well-known for dancing water droplets in a frying pan.

Have you ever spilled water on a hot frying pan? You will see More info
