In the fields of longevity and aging research, a research team has announced a breakthrough that may be one of the most significant in medical history. Harvard scientists have successfully reversed the aging process and show how they did it in a rema
There is little doubt that stem-cell therapy could reshape orthopedics in animals and people alike. After all, Harman says, “when a Super Bowl linebacker tears a ligament, it’s the samedeal as with horses.” The basic tissue structure in the legs of b
The solar storm hit its peak at about 2:41 a.m. EDT (0641 GMT), but the actual flare extended over a three-hour period, said C. Alex Young, a solar astrophysicist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center who runs a website called The Sun Today, in a vi
They created a 15-by-20-by-5-foot vinyl-and-nylon landing pad that contained two inflatable chambers. The upper chamber was sealed, while the four-foot-high lower chamber had valves that released a controlled amount of air on impact.
an 8.8-ounce handheld gadget that uses inkjets, computer-mouse-like optics and navigation software to print uploaded images and text on any flat surface, including paper, plastic, wood and even fabric.
A robber is cornered in a dead-end alley. He turns to face the police officer pursuing him, ready to fight. He pauses. The officer’s left forearm is encased in ballistic nylon, and half a million volts arc menacingly between electrodes on his wrist.
Prosthetic hands typically come in three varieties: purely cosmetic models; hooks and other low-cost that provide a limited range of motion; and electronic versions that better mimic natural hand movements yet can cost tens of thousands of dollars.
Barely a year ago, you could get 40 miles per gallon in exactly one conventional gas-powered car--the two-seat, toaster-size ForTwo, from Smart. But with fuel prices approaching $4 a gallon, membership in the 40-and-over club is growing fast.
IBM researchers have built the first integrated circuit based on graphene, a breakthrough they say could herald future based on graphene wafers instead of silicon. The circuit, a 10 gigahertz frequency mixer, could give wireless devices greater range
A new ATM for a Russian bank turns money machines into truth machines, using fingerprint recognition, 3-D face scans and voice analysis to determine whether customers are worthy of applying for credit cards.
Richard Gage, AIA, architect for more than 23 years, uses only scientific and forensic principles to argue that the the three World Trade Center skyscrapers could not have collapsed on September 11th 2001, by plane impacts and jet fuel alone.
The initial objective of the research was to "try to design a material that can absorb energy under extreme loading situations," Wang explains. Such a material could be used as shielding for trucks or aircraft, he says: "It could be lightweight an
Girls might just have a new best friend. Diamonds are commonly known as one of the hardest (and shiniest) rocks on the planet, but new simulations show that three other stable forms of pure carbon would sparkle even more than diamonds.
Casey Anthony--the Florida mother accused of murdering her two-year-old daughter Caylee in 2008--has not been short on conflicts and legal confrontation. But one controversial aspect is stemming from an unexpected source: a can of air
Hacks, cyber strategies, international cyber squads--we could just go ahead and dub this the “summer of cyber,” and it’s not even mid-June. On the heels of some high-profile hacks, a terse exchange between Google and China following a Gmail breach
