Novel methane consuming microorganisms discovered at Haakon Mosby Mud Volcano in Arctic
Research Institute : 11 May, 2007
Not lava, but muds and methane are emitted from the Arctic deep-water mud volcano Haakon Mosby. When it reaches the atmosphere, methane is an aggressive greenhouse gas, 25-times more potent than carbon dioxide. Fortunately, some specialised microorganisms feed on methane and thereby reduce emissions of this greenhouse gas. For the first time, a German-French research team showed which methane consuming microorganisms thrive in the ice-cold Arctic deep-sea.

H.E.S.S. - drastic variations of gamma rays from central engine of giant elliptical galaxy M 87
Research Institute : 07 May, 2007
The astrophysicists of the international H.E.S.S. collaboration report the discovery of fast variability in very-high-energy gamma rays from the giant elliptical galaxy M 87. The detection of these gamma-ray photons, with energies more than a million million times the energy of visible light, from one of the most famous extragalactic objects on the sky is remarkable, though long-expected given the many potential sites of particle acceleration (and thus gamma-ray production) within M 87. Much more surprising was the discovery of drastic gamma-ray flux variations on time-scales of days.
Molecular mechanism which controls the distribution of chromosomes when cells divide
Research Institute : 06 May, 2007

In a study published in the latest issue of Science, an international consortium from the Max-Planck Society, Wellcome Trust Institutes in Britain and Vietnam, and the Institut Pasteur in France have elucidated the evolutionary history of Salmonella Typhi. Typhi is the cause of typhoid fever, a disease that sickens 21 million people and kills 200,000 worldwide every year.
Max Planck researchers in Halle present new methods for manufacturing nanowires from silicon
Research Institute : 20 April, 2007
Silicon nanowires can help to further reduce the size of microchips. Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Microstructure Physics in Halle have for the first time developed single crystal silicon nanowires that fulfil the key criteria to this end. The researchers used aluminium as a catalyst to grow the nanowires. To date, scientists have usually deployed gold for this purpose.
Max Planck researchers discover new possibilities for magnetic storage
Research Institute : 19 April, 2007
Scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Metals Research in Stuttgart have discovered a new mechanism with which it is possible to use weak magnetic fields to reverse tiny magnetic structures, called vortex cores, quickly and with no losses. Up until now, very strong magnetic fields have been necessary to accomplish this, requiring highly complex technology. The new method might open up new possibilities for magnetic data storage.
Max Planck researchers in Halle observe self-organization of atoms in circular atomic pens
Research Institute : 18 April, 2007
It has long been known that it is possible to confine electrons or atoms in atomic structures in the same way as sheep can be shut in a pen. Physicists at the Max Planck Institute for Microstructure Physics in Halle have now discovered a strange thing: if the atomic fences have the right shape and the substrate, temperature and other parameters are adjusted appropriately, then randomly vapour-deposited atoms arrange themselves in regular structures within the circular fencing, as if they were sheep arranging themselves neatly in a pen.

Max Planck scientists reveal the molecular details of regeneration in news
Research Institute : 16 April, 2007

Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Heart and Lung Research in Bad Nauheim have now started to decode the cellular mechanisms in this impressive ability to regenerate and have discovered the remarkable plasticity of newt heart cells. As mammals, and therefore also humans, do not have this ability, the findings could contribute to new cell therapies for patients with damaged organs.

Ebola-outbreak kills 5000 Gorillas
Research Institute : 14 April, 2007
Over the last decade human outbreaks of the deadly Ebola virus in Africa have been repeatedly linked to gorilla and chimpanzee deaths in nearby forests. Hotly debated has been whether these wild ape deaths were isolated incidents or part of a massive die-off. New research published in the journal Science puts this debate to rest, providing strong evidence that Ebola killed at least 5,000 gorillas at a single site. The study also provides new hope for controlling the devastating impact of Ebola on wild gorilla and chimpanzee populations.
When reputation matters, punishment may be reduced to the extreme cases
Research Institute : 13 April, 2007

Giant radio telescope can deliver high-resolution images showing the cosmic mass distribution
Research Institute : 11 April, 2007
The stars and gas which are seen in galaxies account for only a few percent of the gravitating material in the Universe. Most of the rest has remained stubbornly invisible and is now thought to be made of a new form of matter never yet seen on Earth. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Astrophysics have discovered, however, that a sufficiently big radio telescope could make a picture of everything that gravitates, rivalling the images made by optical telescopes of everything that shines.

Building block created for quantum-computing, secure communication and quantum Internet
Research Institute : 26 November, 2006
Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics in Garching, Germany have achieved unprecedented control over the creation of single photons. By using a tightly trapped single calcium ion, localized between two ultra-high reflectivity mirrors, and subjecting it to an external laser pulse, the scientists could emit photons one by one. The emission time and the pulse shape of each photon were completely user-controlled.
