Sarah Kendrew Sarah Kendrew selects interesting and notable ResearchBlogging.org posts in the physical sciences, chemistry, engineering, computer science, geosciences and mathematics. She blogs about astronomy at One Small Step.

Another Monday, another week. Here’s what’s new from the physical sciences on ResearchBlogging.

What can we learn from nothing at all? On We are all in the gutter, colleague astronomer Niall Deacon describes a new paper on an intriguing gamma ray burst detected in 2005, which scientists have recently attempted to explain with a non-detection of gravitational waves.

How to encrypt a molecule? On NanoExplanations, Aaron Sterling gives a nice description of the issues with watermarking molecular structures.

The Microfluidics Future blog is really giving me an appreciation of this fascinating field of engineering. This week, Hector talks about a lab-on-a-chip project that mimicks spiders’ silk weaving capabilities. Awesome stuff.

Have a great week! I’ll be back next Monday with more selections.

    An impressive share! I have just forwarded this onto a co-worker who was doing a little homework on this. And he actually ordered me dinner due to the fact that I discovered it for him… lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending the time to talk about this topic here on your web page.
