From DieHards to Delcos, most car batteries are pretty much created equal: they eventually lose their juice. Two Texas A&M University physicists are looking into ways to keep batteries going and going and going, and finding answers that embrace both biology and chemistry. Their project also hints at something that has puzzled biologists for more than 100 years: creation of electrical fields around plant roots while they grow...

Theoretical physicist Michael Duff is trying to change the shape of the universe or at least the shape of the stuff it is made of. If theories proposed over the past year by Duff and his colleagues in Texas A&M University's Center for Theoretical Physics hold up, particles that are the building blocks of the universe may change from infinitely tiny points to bubbles and sheets and tubes...

Superconductors, those high-tech materials that were supposed to revolutionize everything from computers to the late superconducting super collider, don't seem to have lived up to their advance billing, scientists say. @That didn't seem to bother a group of physicists -- including a Nobel laureate -- who gathered March 11 at Texas A&M University for a daylong symposium honoring physicist Charles Squire, a distinguished former member of Texas A&M's physics faculty...
