This extraordinary force was more or less forgotten over the decades, but Franklin Felber, a U.S.-based physicist, has resurrected it and flipped the idea around, theorizing that the relativistic particle should also repel the stationary mass.
New technology reveals how DNA molecules pack themselves inside a cell nucleus.
Few inventions have lent themselves to as little improvement over the years as the simple fan, with its whirring blades that blow air across a desk or through a room. But now even the conventional fan has been transformed. James Dyson, the British i
SWAT teams and rescue workers may soon take advantage of wireless networks to locate people moving around inside buildings. We previously examined this nifty wireless concept that uses off-the-shelf technology to locate humans to within 3 feet on th
Mapping the mantle The geophysicists measured the speed of sound in the mantle to depths of 340 km beneath Asia, North and South America and Australia. By combining a large set of data in a form of tomography, they were able to build up velocity m

Heat Can Travel Only One Way Through New Japanese Diode - Robots Eat Bugs and Plants for Power - UK Citizens Catch Crimes on Closed-Circuit Cameras for Cash - LHC Test Could Lead to Hyperdrive Space Propulsion
Tomorrow they are bombing the moon I was wondering if doing so could have any unintended weather consequences?
If you could ask the product of the robot-human merge ten questions, what would they be?
Over 800 'quakes measuring from 1 to 5.2 have been recorded there in the seven days to October 5.
Successful research in the projects that follow over the next two to seven years could initiate a race to develop commercial nuclear fusion for energy generation, space technology and weapons. Futurists had speculated that there would be crash resear
"A study of seven terminally ill patients found identical surges in brain activity moments before death, providing what may be physiological evidence of "out of body" experiences reported by people who survive near-death ordeals.
One way out of this problem would be an environmentally friendly way of making softwood harder and more durable—something that a Norwegian company called Kebony has now achieved. It opened its first factory in January.
Researchers at Columbia University in New York have made the first electrical-readout nanomechanical resonators made from graphene. The devices, which consist of vibrating sheets of graphene suspended over micron-sized trenches, could be used as high
Now this has all been focused on the automobile industry. It is way more important than that. It will completely change the whole business of energy. To start with, it becomes practical and desirable to establish a consumer owned energy
Researchers manipulate a certain brain wave to slow down voluntary movement in humans
It's tempting to call them lords of the flies. For the first time, researchers have controlled the movements of free-flying insects from afar, as if they were tiny remote-controlled aircraft.
Geologists have found a cluster of fossilized dinosaur eggs, about 65 million years old, in a village in the southern India. "We found layer upon layer of spherical eggs and body parts of dinosaur and each cluster contained eight eggs," a geologist a
The Nesscap ultracapacitor is an Electric Double Layer Capacitor (EDLC) that uses an activated carbon powder and coating process, common in the battery industry, to prepare electrodes as opposed to using a higher-cost carbon cloth or other manufactur
Doctoring broken bones in the future could be easier and simpler – thanks to a metallic glass material that can be used to make dissolvable screws, pins or plates.
"The way we attack the problem is not like the way a fan does by blowing as much air as you can through a system," says Mick Wilcox, director of marketing for Nuventix, Inc., the Austin, Tex., maker of SynJet, a synthetic jet technology that features
THE Pentagon's efforts to develop a beam weapon that can deter an adversary by causing a burning sensation on their skin has taken a step forward with the development of a small, potentially hand-held, version. The weapon, which is claimed to cause n
The researchers' new device can easily sense the signature biomarkers that indicate the presence of cancer at the cellular level, even though these biomolecules - genes that indicate aggressive or benign forms of the disease and differentiate subtype
The plan is for the pipeline to draw off 310 million cubic metres (10.5 billion cubic feet) of water each year, of which 240 million will be fed into the desalination plant at the Jordanian Red Sea port of Aqaba, enabling an annual production of 120
The famous dinosaur known as Sue — the largest, most complete and best preserved T. rex specimen ever found — might have been killed by a disease that afflicts birds even today, scientists now suggest. The remains of Sue, a star attraction of the
Fish that generate electric fields to navigate, fight and attract mates are equipped with a dimmer switch of sorts that can turn down their signals to save energy, a new study finds. Electric fish, such as some sharks and eels, emit weak electrical
