Today Google lifted the veil off its massive and beautiful data centers around the world.
NASA's Curiosity rover had been on Mars 61 days when she gathered her first scoop of soil.
What do science and play have in common?
prevented the progression of MS by inhibiting the molecule, known as PI3Kgamma, which activates the cells that cause the immune system to attack itself and cause the nerve damage.
The same technique that is being used to make objects invisible to light could also help hide particles from passing electrons and lead to new kinds of electronics, scientists say.
) have shown that graphene can serve as an excellent tunnel barrier when current is directed perpendicular to the plane of carbon atoms. The spin polarization of the current is also preserved by the tunnel barrier, a finding that could have important
A new technique for firing liquid microjets through human skin is set to revolutionise drug delivery
study of mice, Burnett and his colleagues found a complex positive feedback loop in the penile nerves that triggers waves of nitric oxide to keep the penis erect. He says they now understand that the nerve impulses that originate from the brain and
The owner of the huge eyeball that washed ashore in Pompano Beach this week remained a mystery Friday, although scientists are optimistic they will be able to identify it.
Jakub Halik, a remarkable 37-year-old Czech, is the first man in history to live without a heart or any pulse for an astonishing half a year. Halik's odyssey began April 3, 2012 when a crack Czech medical team—led by the brilliant professor, Dr. Jan
A dormant reservoir of stem cells is present inside every muscle, ready to be activated by exercise and injury to repair any damage. When needed, these cells divide into hundreds of new muscle fibres that repair the muscle. At the end of the repairin
A company working on drugs for genetic heart disease is among several tying therapies to genes.
Next year, medical researchers will test in patients a one-of-a-kind brain implant that can sense electrical activity in the brain while simultaneously emitting electric pulses, says device developer Medtronic.
A rare form of meningitis has infected more than 150 people and claimed 14 lives. Are you at risk? And how did the outbreak start in the first place?
How the National Radio Astronomy Observatory works in complete silence to find signals from afar
Ni(OH)2 nanocrystals grown on graphene sheets with various degrees of oxidation are investigated as electrochemical pseudocapacitor materials for potential energy storage applications.

They're called discreet DNA samples, and the Elk Grove, California, genetic-testing company easyDNA says it can handle many kinds, from toothpicks to tampons.
Melissa Marshall brings a message to all scientists (from non-scientists): We're fascinated by what you're doing.
A Philadelphia robotics startup is blazing trails in the nascent unmanned systems industry by focusing on technology, and ignoring the killer app.
creating tiny iron nanoparticles attached to antibodies which bind to "receptor" molecules on tumour cells. When the magnetic field is applied, the molecules cluster together, automatically triggering the "death signal" that sets off apoptosis.
The new work opens up the prospect of studying imperfections in the "wonder material" graphene or plotting where electrons go during chemical reactions.
Startup lands $55 million for "microserver" design that uses low-power ARM processors normally used in cell phones.
Gesture control, devices that recognize different people, and tricks to make a screen feel as if it has physical buttons could be coming to your gadgets.
One of the first tasks the Navy expects to assign its forthcoming arsenal of laser guns: shooting down drones that menace its ships.
Imagine a licensing agreement for buying seeds that allows them to be used only once a season. They cannot be resold for planting, and cannot be used for research, crop breeding or seed production.
The solar-powered rover is a contender for the $30 million Google Lunar X Prize.
The ear-splitting screech of a knife on a glass bottle has been identified as the worst sound to the human ear by scientists who studied the brain's response to unpleasant noises.
Although Einstein's theories suggest nothing can move faster than the speed of light, two scientists have extended his equations to show what would happen if faster-than-light travel were possible.
The 3-D printer craze has taken off with everyone from hobbyists and amateur gunsmiths to giant corporations.
