Ever wonder how they determine if GMOs are safe? Look no further, here is the answer.
To generate useful energy, plants have evolved very sophisticated "nano-machinery" which operates with light as its energy source and gives a perfect quantum yield of 100%.
A Senate committee gave a sympathetic hearing today to legislation ordering a Department of Energy study of "minimum energy efficiency standards" for video game consoles.
This new research reveals that over the last decade, soda consumption has conservatively caused: • 130,000 new cases of diabetes • 14,000 new cases of heart disease • 50,000 more "life years" with heart disease over the last decade
My own healing happened when Greg arrived at our home two years ago with Cansema. I had just been diagnosed with basal cell skin cancer after a biopsy had been taken from a very large and deep lesion on my back.
Vitamin D is vital in activating human defenses and low levels suffered by around half the world's population may mean their immune systems' killer T cells are poor at fighting infection, scientists said. The findings by Danish researchers could help
Scientists have created a never-before seen type of exotic matter that is thought to have been present at the earliest stages of the universe, right after the Big Bang. The new matter is a particularly weird form of antimatter, which is like a mir
Captain Kirk might want to avoid taking the starship Enterprise to warp speed, unless he's ready to shrug off interstellar hydrogen atoms that would deliver a lethal radiation blast to both ship and crew. There are just two hydrogen atoms per cubi
And some years later, I had to give two glasses of water to a person who was doubled up in abdominal pain from his disease, because I had no other medication to give him at that moment. And he was in excruciating pain, and water performed miraculous
February will be the first calendar month since January 2007 with sunspots every day. Sunspot numbers for February 18-24 were 17,
By extrapolating from these results, they scientist say they should be able to achieve fusion using the laser system at Livermore, which was officially opened last year. Glenzer says this could happen by the end of the year.
"This is only the first instance showing that these structures can indeed be grown in 2-D like graphene," Ajayan said. "I think the whole new field will be exciting for basic physics and electro-optical applications
Using data from a NASA radar that flew aboard India's Chandrayaan-1 spacecraft, scientists have detected ice deposits near the moon's north pole. NASA's Mini-SAR instrument, a lightweight, synthetic aperture radar, found more than 40 small craters
Bloom says the energy servers have a lifespan of 10 years and a payback period of three to five years. That’s based on the current price of natural gas—which is one fuel used by the devices—and state and federal subsidies that halve the cost of the m
Researchers crafted a flat surface that refuses to get wet. Water droplets skitter across it like ball bearings tossed on ice. The inspiration? Not wax. Not glass. Not even Teflon. Instead, engineers achieved a "nearly perfect hydrophobic interface"
Ever since the explosion of the male impotence drug Viagra onto the global pharmaceutical market, drugmakers have yearned to find an equivalent for women.
As many as one quarter of the star clusters in our Milky Way -- many more than previously thought -- are invaders from other galaxies, according to a new study. The report also suggests there may be as many as six dwarf galaxies yet to be...
My first conjecture is that the force is gravitational in magnitude but repulsive. This has the immediate advantage of explaining why we are not buried in the stuff. In fact it tends to leave gravity wells in general.
Lawrenceville Plasma Physics (LPP) has obtained the first preliminary evidence that the injection of angular momentum into the DPF considerably increases the efficiency of energy transfer into the plasmoid, the size of the plasmoid and thus the fusio
But if you consider the fact that the cultivation method is the only difference in the feed, this is in fact a big difference. Moreover, seven of the 49 genes are involved in cholesterol biosynthesis, when only thirty genes are involved in total in
Greaves saw this as an indication that industry experts had, by now, reached the conclusion that THAI might work after all! (Publisher: It's an energy thing)
Bloom CEO K.R. Sridhar holding the ceramic plates that are stacked up into modules to create the company's "Bloom Box" fuel cells.
Triggered by electromagnetic wave exposure, peptides (protein chains) bind to DNA in the brain. The bond between the peptides and DNA in the central nervous system cause genetic mutations and lead to brain cancer, ADHD, MS, and autism.
A theory that a mechanism exists which can store more than 20,000J/cc is afoot at Penn State. But it cannot be talked about. Actually, it can be talked about but the talkers can't be named although if you read this blog, you would be in a proper pos
The new calibration curve, which extends back 50,000 years is a major landmark in radiocarbon dating--
One of the biggest puzzles in biology – how and why living cells age – has been solved by an international team based at Newcastle University. The answer is complex, and will not produce an elixir of eternal life in the foreseeable future.
Scientists in California say a drop in coastal fog could threaten the state's famed giant redwood trees. "Fog prevents water loss from redwoods in summer and is really important for the tree and the forest," said research co-author Professor Todd Daw
At the top, near the ice cube, you'll find it to be around 0 °C, but at the bottom it should be about 4 °C. That's because water is denser at 4°C than it is at any other temperature -
By smashing gold particles together at super-fast speeds, physicists have basically melted protons, creating a kind of "quark soup" of matter that is about 250,000 times hotter than the center of the sun and similar to conditions just after the birth
Mr. Myhrvold played a slow-motion recorded video that showed what happened to a representative mosquito. As the insect flew, a sudden light beam struck it, disintegrating parts of its body into a plume of smoke. It fell, even as its wings continued t
