The second definition was underlined. Although she had no conscious recollection of it, Kvavilashvili had evidently looked up the meaning of "hurdle" before. Somehow, she concluded, her subconscious knew that the word was relevant to her difficulty
Yesterday, the heads of the space agencies for Europe, Canada, Russia, India, and Japan met in Washington D.C.
These piston pumps are a critical component for safe, cost-effective, sustainable, reliable and highly reusable rocket engines for XCOR’s Lynx and other launchers including upper stage liquid hydrogen engines suitable for the Atlas V, Delta IV, and
n sepsis, for example, the inflammatory response evolves almost too quickly, but the available treatment strategies aim to prevent inflammation entirely," he said. "A better approach would be to turn down the response when it's too strong, yet sti
Volcanologists have found a direct link between swarms of earthquakes at the surface of Mount St Helens in the US and injections of hot magma into its magma chamber.
16 Heatmaps That Reveal Exactly Where People Look
Do you eat real, organic food? If you do, you must be a jerk.
Yes,...off-the-shelf tech for armed drones really is available to you and everyone else.
Rather than encumbering the mask with buttons and controls, its inventors set up a website called sleepwithremee.com where users can adjust the setups, such as when to start the light sequence and when to repeat it. The intensity of the lights can al
The article is really a review of the history and current state of LENR, much of its content is what people following recent developments in LENR research already know. Ritter contacted a number of people involved in the field, including Dennis Bushn
Another breakthrough in biology and medicine was reported, as scientists were able, for the first time, to take skin cells from patients who had suffered heart failure and make them repair the cardiac muscle.
A new university-backed project aims to investigate cryptic species such as the yeti whose existence is unproven, through genetic testing.
Healthier lifestyles and better disease management led to a sharp drop in death rates for Americans with diabetes between 1997 and 2006, especially deaths caused by heart disease and stroke, a new federal government report shows.
Two preliminary studies suggest that some headway is being made in both the detection and treatment of pancreatic cancer.
Antibodies that help to stop the HIV virus have been found in breast milk.
Up to half of all prostate cancer cells have a chromosomal rearrangement that results in a new "fusion" gene and formation of its unique protein -- but no one has known how that alteration promotes cancer growth.
owever, the most recently produced versions of the EESU layers have been tested by EEStor and in EEStor's opinion do not yet achieve the level of permittivity necessary for commercial production. EEStor is now working on improvements in the film m

Stressed men are often thought to be more aggressive, but new research indicates this common belief doesn't hold up. Researchers found that stressed men are actually more social than their non-stressed counterparts.
Married couples are generally pretty good at recognizing each other's emotions while they are arguing, new research suggests. But if your partner is angry, that might tell more about the overall climate of your marriage than about what your partner i
If you’ve ever seen an explosive volcanic eruption – either live or on video – you know that there is an awful lot of ash produced. All that magma (well, most of it) that is erupting from the volcano is being fragmented into tiny glass shards that we
The battle over distance records sets up a fascinating race to be the first to teleport to an orbiting satellite
"When someone has a nuclear reactor, with plutonium sitting there for a long time, you don't really know how much is in there," said study researcher Georgios Koutroulakis of the Los Alamos National Laboratory. The researchers also suggest the fin
The process is called quantum tunneling, and occurs when a particle passes through a barrier that it seemingly shouldn't be able to. Scientists measured electrons escaping from atoms without having the necessary energy to do so.
The PAL-V requires a strip (either pavement or grass) of at least 165 m (540 ft) to get airborne and just 30 m (100 ft) to land. Once in the air it can reach a maximum speed of 97 kts (180 km/h/112 mph), with a minimum speed of 27 kts (50 km/h/31 mph
The street lights also have loudspeakers that can give audible warnings to individuals,mimicking the talking surveillance cameras in the UK that shout out orders through microphones telling people to pick up litter or leave the area.
With chronic diseases continuing to rise, health care costs spiraling out of sight, and research to find "cures" continuing to take in billions each year while acceptable solutions remain "a few years away," a small but growing sector is finding answ
The term ethylene (ethene) generally brings to mind polyethylene plastics, not fruit. However, ethylene is more than just a feedstock for chemical industry, it is also the smallest plant hormone, and it controls physiological processes, such as the r
