A lightning-quick experimental aircraft made history when it sped more than 3,000 mph above the Pacific Ocean in a test flight, reigniting decades-long efforts to develop a vehicle that could travel faster than a speeding bullet.
Think of the most frustrating, intractable, or simply annoying problems you can imagine. Now think about what technology is doing to fix them.
Researchers are studying a cream that restores pigmentation to people with a skin condition called vitiligo. Theoretically, there are hints it may work for people who are going gray from age, too.
Ancient toothaches, smells, franken-mummies, and more!
Houses could be painted with a new super-material that generates electricity from sunlight and can even change colour on request, following new research.
Aorun likely hunted lizards and tiny relatives of today’s mammals and crocodilians.
A Rice University laboratory's cagey strategy turns negatively charged carbon nanotubes into liquid crystals that could enhance the creation of fibers and films.
Lasers! They’re not just for shooting down drones or annoying your cat. They’re coming to your car this year, transforming pock-marked pavement into smooth ribbons of asphalt.
But we've found that sections of the IGH-chain locus' DNA sequence are either missing or inserted into a person's genome, and this could vary depending on ethnicity," Corey Watson, a postdoctoral researcher at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine i
Scientists with the Hotchkiss Brain Institute divided mice into different groups of pups raised by different combinations of parents, then waited until the pups reached adulthood to look for an impact on brain cell production. "When the babies be
Any time now, hundreds of millions of cicadas with sex on the brain will emerge from the soil across a wide swathe of the eastern US. New Scientist looks at the strange science behind this disruptive natural wonder.
In honor of the iconic science fictoin franchise's latest film "Star Trek: Into Darkness" — set for release on May 17 — IBM has unveiled amazing new photos crafted from the microscopic movements of single carbon atoms.
Scientists in the US have created a robot the size of a fly that is able to perform the agile manoeuvres of the ubiquitous insects.
