Earth’s Warming Continued in 2017. And That Was Without El Niño.
6386
SCIENCE : ENERGY SCIENCE
Researchers reported Thursday that 2017 average global temperatures are just below the record set in 2016. The result was a surprise because there was no El Niño, the weather pattern usually linked to record-setting heat.

SCIENCE : PHYSICS
Researchers have developed the first instrument that can provide a detailed image of the entire eye. By incorporating a lens that changes optical parameters in response to an electric current, the innovative technology can produce higher quality images than currently available and could make eye examinations faster and more comfortable for patients by avoiding the need to undergo imaging with multiple instruments to look at different areas of the eye.
Physicists find clues to the origins of high-temperature superconductivity

SCIENCE : PHYSICS
Ever since cuprate (copper-containing) superconductors were first discovered in 1986, they have greatly puzzled researchers. Cuprate superconductors have critical superconducting temperatures?the point at which their electrical resistance drops to zero?of up to 138 K at ambient pressure, which far exceeds the critical temperatures of other superconductors and is even higher than what is thought possible based on theory.
