Where does water on the Moon come from and where is it stored?

Where does water on the Moon come from and where is it stored?

In 2020, NASA’s observatory discovered water on the Moon. Now, an international team composed of geologists and astronomers has discovered how water gets to the Moon and where and how it is deposited there. The first author of this study is Günther Kletetschka from the Institute of hydrogeology, engineering geology and applied geophysics, Faculty of Science, Charles University. He is also affiliated with University of Alaska-Fairbanks.

Study highlights role of disordered protein interactions in gene expression

Study highlights role of disordered protein interactions in gene expression

A team led by researchers at Baylor College of Medicine, and the Czech Academy of Sciences and Faculty of Science, Charles University has uncovered a new piece of the puzzle of how gene expression is orchestrated. Published in the journal Science, the findings reveal a novel mechanism that coordinates the assembly of components inside cells that control gene expression. The mechanism not only is essential for normal cell function, but also has been implicated in cancer, neurodegeneration and HIV infection, and could suggest new ways to treat these conditions.

Popular Science: Type of water really matters

Popular Science: Type of water really matters

Many factors affect the fog occurrence. Sufficient air humidity and the existence of condensation nuclei are the basic preconditions for the fog formation at all. However, there are many more factors influencing the fog formation and they are still not sufficiently explored. Iva Hůnová's international scientific team from the Institute for Environmental Studies, Faculty of Science, Charles University has previously studied and quantified the effects of meteorology and air pollution, as well as the impact of terrain and forests. Now they focused on the effect of water areas around the fog observation stations - and moreover - depending on the type of water – fresh- or sea-water.

Popular Science: Chemists as children of the Sun on a journey to a stellar future of chemistry

In the play Children of the Sun, written by Maxim Gorky in 1905, the chemist Protassoff exclaims, “But us, us people, us children of the Sun, bright source of life… we will conquer the dark fear of death!” His words became an inspiration for the new communication strategy “Chemists as Children of the Sun” designed by Mgr. Radek Chalupa and Dr Karel Nesměrák from the Faculty of Science, Charles University. Their aim is to highlight successful chemists throughout history and supress chemophobia (fear of anything chemical that prevails in society).
