A pill that delivers the health benefits of diet and exercise without any of the effort is one step closer to becoming a reality.
Australia, is planning to sell solar cells that can double as the facades on buildings. Both companies have already developed dye-sensitized solar cells based on earlier technology, but the recent advances could make the cells cheaper and significant
The beginnings of Terminator - These exosuits can help people walk,... and will become Robocop very soon.
Japanese scientists have cloned mice whose bodies were frozen for as long 16 years and said on Monday it may be possible to use the technique to resurrect mammoths and other extinct species.
A microscopic device that could swim through the bloodstream and directly target the site of disease, such as a tumor, could offer radical new treatments. To get to a tumor, however, such a device would have to be small and agile enough to navigate t
As a demonstration of the system's versatility, Appleyard says, they set it up to collect and hold 16 tiny living E. coli cells at once on a microchip, forming them into the letters MIT.
"The prospect of domination of the nation's scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present and is gravely to be regarded." Eisenhower's Farewell Address
"I can immediately go to the photograph, zoom in on it and see what that mass of rock looked like before it failed. That can tell me a lot about why it failed and the mechanism by which it failed," said Stock. "I'm already ecstatic
British researchers say they've identified a "hate circuit" in the brain. This hate circuit shares part of the brain associated with aggression, but is distinct from areas related to emotions such as fear, threat, and danger, said rese
The Internet is not just changing the way people live but altering the way our brains work with a neuroscientist arguing this is an evolutionary change which will put the tech-savvy at the top of the new social order.
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation awarded 100,000 dollars each on Wednesday to scientists in 22 countries including funding for a Japanese proposal to turn mosquitoes into "flying syringes" delivering vaccines.

Physicists are announcing a startling discovery about Scotch tape. It turns out that if you peel the popular adhesive tape off its roll in a vacuum chamber, it emits X-rays. The researchers even made an X-ray image of one of their fingers.
It sounds like science fiction, by scientists say it might one day be possible to erase undesirable memories from the brain, selectively and safely. Using a complex genetic approach, U.S. and Chinese researchers believe they have done just that in mi
Understanding the basics of this subject will help you understand just how much your world is about to change
Located within the Vermilion Cliffs National Monument, the marks were long thought simply to be potholes gouged out of the rock by years of erosion.
50 years ago, a chemist conducted a famous experiment to investigate how life could have started on Earth. Recently, scientists re-analyzed his results using modern technology and found a new implication: The original sparks for life on our planet co
"Buckypaper" looks like ordinary carbon paper, but don't be fooled by the cute name or flimsy appearance. It could revolutionize the way everything from airplanes to TVs are made. 10X lighter but 500X stronger than steel, it conducts el
Rabiei’s invention isn’t the first metal foam, but she says it’s the strongest. The main weakness of existing metal foams is the varying sizes of their cells — tiny pockets of space inside the material. Instead, Rabiei used cells of standard sizes an
A University of California Los Angeles team found searching the web stimulates centres in the brain that control decision-making and complex reasoning.
those who reported using the Internet regularly in their everyday lives showed twice as much signaling in brain regions responsible for decision-making and complex reasoning, compared with those who had limited Internet exposure.
Gecko tape: Arrays of carbon nanotubes with a vertically aligned section (lower left) and a branched, tangled upper layer (lower right) mimic the structures of gecko feet but are 10 times more adhesive.
Finding the genetic causes could lead to new therapies for baldness.
Professor Cervino shows a visitor what he calls "the electric oyster reef project." He's installed a series of spiral-shaped bands of metal in the shallow water. At low tide, they jut from the water like giant strands of DNA.
Earth was progressively smaller as we go back in time over 4 – 5 billion years it grew from a small planetesimal to a planet the size of Mars. The increasing speed of growth increased exponentially.
Stem cells were isolated from the testicles of adult men and turned into bone, muscle, neural and other kinds of cells, German researchers said. "These are the only pluripotent cells present in adult human organisms,''
Police could one day predict the surname of male suspects or victims of crime from DNA alone, British researchers said. Scientists said that men with the same surname were highly likely to be genetically linked.
Scientists think land beasts evolved from ancient creatures that left the sea and evolved lungs and legs. If the new finding is real it pushes the advent of walking back 30 million years earlier than any previous solid finding.
The jury is still out on whether electric cars can ever be really practical, but the computer geeks in California are betting that their inventiveness can beat out Detroit's cumbersome bureaucracy in producing a viable e-car.
