Microbes 'MacGyver' membrane transport

Now scientists from the Netherlands, Germany, and Spain have described a system that combines a pore and a transporter to import potassium ions into cells against an extreme concentration gradient.

What We Can Learn From 20 Years of the International Space Station
At a time when most gadgets, on average, last only a handful of years, it’s heartening to note that one of the most complex technological instruments ever built is still going strong. On Nov. 20, the International Space Station (ISS) reached a two-decade milestone since the launch of its first module. Beyond just a feat of engineering, the ISS serves as an all too rare example in this hyper-partisan era of what can be achieved when our desire to cooperate triumphs over our divisions. It was on this day in 1998 that aerospace engineers from former rivals Russia and the United States celebrated the lift off of the Mosc...
