Scientists at CERN's Large Hadron Collider say results from the latest round of research suggest the particle's spin mirrors that of a Higgs.
Personalized and interactive advertising experiences are becoming a lot more important than just simple banner ads.
Today, labor is one of the key forces pushing for comprehensive immigration reform in Washington, DC. To learn more about the movement's advocacy and more about how unions transformed themselves into outspoken champions of immigrant rights, I spoke
Remarkably, the communication between the rats was two-way. If the receiving rat failed at the task, the first rat was not rewarded with a drink, and appeared to change its behaviour to make the task easier for its partner. In further experiments, th
As you pick up a green-colored beer this St. Patty's Day, keep in mind that the alcohol you take in will stick with you.
A core, not side, effect of technology is its ability to magnify power and multiply force — for both attackers and defenders.
search is all but over for a subatomic particle that is a crucial building block of the universe.
A new venture lets patients choose how their data is used for medical research and offers sophisticated privacy settings.
Modern psychiatric drugs treat the chemistry of the whole brain, but neurobiologist David Anderson believes in a more nuanced view of how the brain functions
March 21, 2008 It seems despite man's endless ingenuity and the incredible modeling power available to inventors through CAD systems, we keep looking to nature to find ever more effective ways of doing things.
The DEFCAD files have been downloaded more than 400,000 times. Our next step is defcad.com: an open-source search engine for all 3D printable files, not just innocuous trinkets and garden gnomes.
Antibiotic-resistant superbugs will push medical science back to the 19th century, with people dying of minor infections says Britain’s top health official.
Salinity observations from SMOS show that warm, salty water being carried north by the Gulf Stream meets the colder, less-salty water transported southward along North America's east coast by the Labrador Current, mixing the water masses off Cape Ha
Draw a large dot or symbol on your hand. Look down at it periodically throughout the day, each time asking yourself: “Am I awake or dreaming?” Make this a habit. Eventually, this question will pop up within a dream, allowing you to become aware and e
New electronic tattoos could help monitor health during normal daily activities.
Broadband communication and custom signal-processing chips power a new brain-recording device that may one day help paralyzed people.
Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have demonstrated a solid-state refrigerator that uses quantum physics in micro- and nanostructures to cool a much larger object to extremely low temperatures.
How long until we can successfully 3-D print a whole human?
Lima’s University of Engineering & Technology (UTEC) recently erected this water-producing billboard along the Panamericana Sur, or Panamerican Highway, in the village of Bujama. While the coasts of Peru have humidity levels averaging around 98 perce
The International Space Station is now home to more than 1,200 pounds (544 kilograms) of supplies delivered by an unmanned, privately built space capsule that reached the orbiting science laboratory on Sunday (March 3).
A simple sensor circuit made of hard-to-handle but promising carbon nanotubes is a first step in making the materials practical for computing.
Amplifiers for the human brain, designed to allow people with paralysis to interact with the world, aren’t the most easily understood technology.
Researchers have demonstrated a way to give concrete surfaces the ability to heal when small cracks appear, an advance that could allow bridges and other structures to last longer.
Brown University researchers invented a small, rechargeable implant that can let subjects move freely.
Jack is a fifteen year old freshman in high school. He developed a paper sensor that could detect pancreatic, ovarian and lung cancer in five minutes for as little as 3 cents. He conducted his research at John Hopkins University
There are three computers onboard. The iPad, the LLC (Low Level Controller) and the MVC (Main Vehicle Computer). The iPad runs the user interface and demands constant attention from the LLC. If any of these computers disagree the driver will not be a
Early treatment answers some questions, raises others
Those simple features, available for some time to consumers, will be a great leap forward in the industrial sector, Friehauf says, and he imagines how Google could help push it even further for this new set of users. “What about 3-D visualizations, s
The latest research comes from a team headed by Yang Juan, Professor of Propulsion Theory and Engineering of Aeronautics and Astronautics at the Northwestern Polytechnic University in Xi'an. Titled "Net thrust measurement of propellantless microwav
The artificial retina is a sheet of electrodes implanted in the eye. The patient is also given glasses with an attached camera and a portable video processor. This system, called Argus II, allows visual signals to bypass the damaged portion of the re
