Back in the days when I still had to stand on my toes to make sure I was tall enough to go on Splash Mountain, Disney’s Imagineers held an indescribable mystique.
It's a science lesson masquerading as a slow-motion video!
Yes, you could have, you little bookworm.
Experiments suggest a brain signal called corollary discharge, which helps us distinguish the sensory experiences we produce ourselves from those produced by external stimuli, plays an important role in our experiences of internal speech, he said.
Is a missing tooth ruining your smile? Here's an unlikely recipe for cooking up a replacement – with the help of a mouse and some of your own urine.
An odd dense spot in the universe populated by a surprising amount of matter has been puzzling scientists since it was revealed in March in an all-sky map made by the European Planck satellite.
Earlier this month, astronomers using the Hubble Space Telescope studied exoplanet HD 189733b and determined that it was a deep blue color, thanks to silicates in its atmosphere that can create storms akin to raining glass.
Today scientists from the Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium released their annual measurement of the Gulf Dead Zone, which measured 5,800 square miles, larger than the state of Connecticut.
Electric scooters, with their small physical footprint and non-gas powered drivetrain, are pretty good for the planet right? Sure, but there’s always room for improvement, especially when you consider what toxic materials were likely used to construc
Recently, doctors from the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio reported that Jehovah’s Witnesses who refused blood transfusions while undergoing cardiac surgery were significantly less likely to need another operation for bleeding compared with non-Witnesses wh
The 50-foot-wide, 15-ton electromagnet, which became a national sensation during its move from New York to the Chicago area, has reached its final destination at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab), according to various media reports

Researchers at the University of Alicante have developed a cementitious material incorporating carbon nanofibers in its composition, turning cement into an excellent conductor of electricity capable of performing functions beyond its usual structural
When University of Pennsylvania nanoscientists created beautiful, tiled patterns with flat nanocrystals, they were left with a mystery:
Very recently, the BBC reported that, in conjunction with Imperial College of the University of London, a concept mission to land astronauts on the planet Mars, using known technology, had been developed.
A large banner hangs from the front of the stadium-size building that houses the world's most powerful array of lasers: "Bringing Star Power To Earth."
In the current issue of Rolling Stone, Jeff Goodell has a great report on why Jason Box's radical approach to climate science is changing our understanding of the unprecedented rate of glacier melt in Greenland.
Can an armband that controls gestures by measuring muscle activity make it as a mainstream gadget?

“The CMR Board of Victoria was the first statutory authority to regulate Chinese medicine in Australia. The Chinese Medicine Registration Act 2000 became fully operational in Victoria on 1 January 2002 and was later replaced by the Health Professions
Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS) is a powerful analytical method that can detect trace amounts of substances, such as narcotics, toxins, and explosives.
The field of drug discovery is growing at a remarkable pace, leading to the development of many new drugs, most of which are generally more potent than their predecessors, yet suffer from poor solubility and/or high toxicities.
Scientists have implanted a false memory in the brains of mice in an experiment that they hope will shed light on the well-documented phenomenon whereby people "remember" events or experiences that have never happened.
The most lethal pesticide found in the pollen samples was chlorothonatil.
He found at 930 megahertz (MHz), the middle of the cellphone frequency band, he could detect inflamed tissues. He redirected his research and found 462–465 MHz was the key frequency for detecting cancer. Mitochondria and microtubules vibrate on
