新年快乐!

This year, Chinese New Year - The Year of the Rooster - begins on Saturday January 28 and lasts until February 15th, 2018. The new year, also known as the Spring Festival, is marked by the lunisolar Chinese calendar, so the date changes from year to year. The festivities usually start the day before the New Year and continue until the Lantern Festival, the 15th day of the new year. Each Chinese New Year is characterised by one of 12 animals which appear in the Chinese zodiac.The Chinese zodiac is divided into 12 blocks (or houses) just like its western counterpart, but with the major difference being that each house has a time-length of one year instead of one month.

Ocho décadas después, el hidrógeno se hace metal

Es el átomo más simple que existe. Está en el agua y en gran cantidad de compuestos químicos. Representa la mayor parte de la materia visible del universo y, en la Tierra, se suele encontrar por partida doble: dos átomos que forman una molécula de gas. De él se sabe mucho pero quedan interrogantes. Esta semana, una de las preguntas se ha aclarado: enfriando y apretando mucho sus moléculas, el hidrógeno se hace metal. Es decir, probablemente es capaz de conducir la electricidad y el calor.
