Mesothelioma cancer, asbestos cancer, bladder cancer, breast cancer, etc... they'll all be able to profit and be fought with the aid of nanotechnology one day.
It’s the dream of kids all around the world to see giant beasts walk the Earth again. Could -- and should -- that dream be realized? Hendrik Poinar gives an informative talk on the next -- really -- big thing:
Bad news wannabe Mars explorers. The round trip alone would blast you with doses of radiation that come close to the acceptable lifetime limits sets by NASA – and that's not including any practice trips to space or time spent on the Red Planet.
IT MAY be a robot, and it may not have a body – but it definitely has feeling.
AN ATOM'S electrons are an ever-shifting quantum melee, but it turns out you can still take their photograph as if they were standing still.
And just like with numerous other powerful substances like turmeric and ginger, mainstream science is still slowly confirming what many traditional practitioners have known for their entire lives. This is, of course, due to the fact that there is sim
A working model of the estimated $5-million device could be ready within a year.
Stanford University scientists have developed an advanced zinc-air battery with higher catalytic activity and durability than similar batteries made with costly platinum and iridium catalysts.
Dating back thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine, oil pulling may seem like an unlikely curative miracle due to its simplicity.
We describe a simple process for the fabrication of ultrathin, transparent, optically homogeneous, electrically conducting films of pure single-walled carbon nanotubes and the transfer of those films to various substrates.
The large-scale production of quasi-aligned carbon nanotube bundles is reported.
Chemical vapor deposition (CVD) is known as one of the most efficient methods of synthesizing carbon nanotubes
Invented in 1879, carbon fiber is now used in everything from batting helmets to violins.
Your task chair just got smarter.
Scientific and technological advances are making that an awfully complicated question.
It’s not quite lead into gold, but a team of international researchers have succeeded in turning cement into metal.
There were high hopes of using carbon nanotubes, particularly for ultra-fast water transport to desalinate seawater.
You might think that 3D printing is a mature technology, the way guns and pizzas and pieces of jet engines are popping out these days, but you haven't seen it all: a company called Mataerial has built a contraption that can print gravity-defying stra
The very efficient solar-electric propulsion thruster for spaceships shown in this image is currently under development at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif.
Plants buried inside the Teardrop Glacier in the Canadian Arctic 400 years ago still have the ability to regrow, according to a new study published Monday in the U.S. journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
