Researchers directing a special type of light at metal poked with holes in irregular patterns recently discovered that all the light behaved like a liquid and fell across the metal to find its way through the escape holes.
Twins can be identical, fraternal and apparently semi-identical, scientists now report.
Researchers discovered twins who are identical on their mom's side of the equation but share only half their genes from dad.
Here's how it happened:
The French and American physicists used a laser beam to produce a surprisingly long and steady jet of soapy liquid that was narrower than a human hair. When directed at a different angle, it pushed the liquid into a hump-like shape.
In the near future, longer-lasting batteries could run on virtually anything sugary, including tree sap or flat soda pop.
Scientists say these sweet new batteries could operate three to four times longer than the conventional lithium ion batteries
The Plasma Converter consumes any type of waste—from dirty diapers to chemical weapons—it disintegrates trash into its constituent elements by tearing apart molecular bonds. The only by-products are an obsidian-like glass and ultimately hydrogen.
Earlier research had pegged this area -- one of the more recently evolved parts of the human brain -- as playing a role in generating social emotions. In fact, the people with damage in this region due to stroke or other causes experienced severely d
[It has always bothered me that no evidence of burrowing dinos existed.] Fossil hunters have found the remains of small dinosaurs that made their home in a burrow, a finding the reptiles could exploit a much wider habitat than thought.
Scientists have turned water into ice in nanoseconds, which means really, really fast. That's not the most interesting part, though. The ice is hotter than boiling water. The experiment was done at the Sandia National Laboratories' huge Z mac
The first hint that a new type of matter may exist came in 1983. "Twenty five years ago we thought we understood everything about how matter changes phase," says Wen. "Then along came an experiment that opened up a whole new world.
Scientists have unearthed a fossil of a mammal the size of a chipmunk that skittered around with the dinosaurs, with a key feature in the evolution of mammals -- the middle ear bones -- fabulously preserved.
The shorter genomes of birds originated in saurischian dinosaurs, the group of dinosaurs from which birds evolved and that includes Tyrannosaurus rex. So rather than being a characteristic of birds or flying animals, short genomes should be thought o
[misleading] Humans caught pubic lice, aka "the crabs," from gorillas roughly three million years ago. Rather than close encounters of the intimate kind, humans most likely got the lice from sleeping in gorilla nests or eating the apes.
A painstaking scan of the DNA of tumor cells shows hundreds of previously unsuspected genes are involved in cancer. They found more than 1,000 different mutations in just one family of genes taken from 200 samples of breast, stomach, colorectal and o
A team of British scientists has set sail on a voyage to examine why a huge chunk of the earth's crust is missing, deep under the Atlantic Ocean -- a phenomenon that challenges conventional ideas about how the earth works.
Researchers have discovered that cells in the mucosal lining of human genitalia produce a protein that "eats up" invading HIV -- possibly keeping the spread of the AIDS more contained than it might otherwise be.
A spectacularly quirky creature with long, curved spines protruding from its armored body prowled the ocean floor half a billion years ago near the dawn of complex life forms on Earth, scientists said.
With the flip of another switch, powerful up-and-down vibrations, 50 a second, started shaking the cylinder. A bubble floating in the liquid — phosphoric acid — started to shine, brightening into an intense ball of light like a miniature star.
New Zealand fishermen may have caught the largest Colossal squid ever found -- weighing 992 pounds and with rings the size of tires. Was caught by fishermen long lining for toothfish in deep ocean off Antarctica,
